Well, what can I say? Mac 'Rebel' lipstick has become a bit of a cult buy amongst beauty lovers.
Now, for me, any Mac lipstick I pick up I am (usually) bound to love, but this one is pretty special. I got my hands on it a couple of weeks ago in Selfridges, and as soon as I got it home I had a little try-on and fell completely head over heels with the gorgeously rich luxe colour.
When you actually look at the colour, it looks like a gothy purpley red colour, but when you put it onto lips it transforms into this beautiful hot pinky/dark purple colour which is unexpected. Perfect for night-time glam, I can't say enough good things about this one. And because it's Mac, you already know its ability to moisturise the lips and go on like a dream is a given.
One thing I would point out it that because it is a darker colour, the colour can tend to bleed (especially after having a drink or eating), so I would advise picking up a lip-liner to keep it in place. I chose one of Topshop's as it was affordable and a good colour match (I can't actually see a colour name on the pencil, but I THINK from looking on the website that it is 'deception').
So there we have it, one cult lipstick with very very pretty results.
