MAC Rebel and Currant: Review







MAC Rebel Lipstick and Currant Lip Pencil (£14 & £11.50) - MAC 

Recently, I popped into Selfridges to spend the last of my Christmas money and I knew that I wanted to try another MAC lipstick. I chose 3 to try on, Syrup (which just turned out to be the colour of my lips), Girl About Town (which now I want next) and Rebel which I came home with (obviouslyyyy) I'd seen a few reviews and I was rather iffy to be frank but I thought I'd give it a go but in my mind thinking 'oh it'll definitely be Girl About Town'. Oh how I was SO wrong, Rebel is the most gorgeous deep berry shade with MAC calling it a 'Midtonal Cream Plum'. I LOVE it, so much. The longevity is good, around 3 hours without eating or drinking but let's face it, all lipsticks are like that and it really does feel like satin on the lips, something I'm rather liking but I don't think it'll beat Cremesheen, but it's close! It doesn't accentuate the dry bits but I still wouldn't prep beforehand. Now onto Currant, the first of many MAC Lip Pencils. The lovely girl that helped me brought it over for me to have a gander at because they are usually bought together and I can see why. Currant and Rebel are the perfect love affair, bringing out the deepness in Rebel but still keeping the plum berryness (because that's an adjective!) and it'll go with a few of my darker shades as well. I'm thinking money well spent here! 

Have you ever tried Rebel? Got a MAC shade you really want right now?

    1. Oh Jayde, you so need this in your collection. Rebel isn't as dark on lips as it is in the bullet so on it's own it's a lovely shade, not too dark! xoxo
