MAC Rebel Lipstick Review L'amour Josie
Ahh MAC's Satin Lipstick in Rebel. A lipstick so lovely that I bought it twice (after my sister "borrowed" the first one). Now that we're well over a week in to September - and thus Autumn - Rebel is the perfect, pretty shade for the season.

In the bullet, Rebel looks to be a seriously dark, vampy lipstick. However, in reality it swatches as a lighter, purple toned red. This lipstick is the perfect shade for girls who want to give berry lips a whirl, but are a little intimidated by how dark they can be. I've been loving anything purple on the lips, and Rebel falls nicely in to that category. As much as I wish they did, classic red lipsticks don't work for me. However, Rebel has enough of a pinky-blue undertone for it to flatter my colouring. 

Rebel is formulated in MAC's satin finish, meaning that it's long lasting and looks semi-matte when applied, but isn't as drying on the lips as a matte finish. The colour wears really well; after about four hours of wear you're left with a light berry stain on your lips which is a task to remove. There's a reason that this is one of my favourite lipsticks - it's just good - so I'd recommend Rebel for anyone who's looking to add an Autumnal twist to their makeup.
