MAC Rebel, the first dark lipstick shade I ever bought that wasn’t red, and one of my all-time favourite lipsticks, is today’s Simply Lippy challenge choice. I was hoping not to use this shade so early in the challenge as I wear it all the time, no matter the month or season, but, it’s a dull, gloomy day in Dublin and it just felt like the right choice for today.
Rebel is one of MAC’s most popular shades and has become a cult favourite over the years. It is a bright purple/plum colour, but its almost pink undertone is what makes this shade stand out against others I’ve tried. It is also the reason why I’ve been totally obsessed with it since I first tried it about six years ago! It has a satin finish, and like all MAC lipsticks, the colour pay off is amazing.
I don’t know what it is about this lippy, but it always makes me feel great. My face looks dull – it brightens it up, my mood is low – it brightens it up, the weather is gloomy – it brightens it up! In a nutshell, it brightens everything up and above all, it makes me happy.
I was out meeting an old friend for brunch earlier today and it somehow also felt appropriate to be wearing an old favourite, as I sat chatting to an old favourite!
Of course this shade won’t be for everyone, but if you love plum shades and you haven’t tried it, then I definitely recommend putting it on your lippy wish list!
Are you following me on social media? If not then don’t forget you can follow my journey over there too. You’ll find me on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, or you can just search for my challenge hashtags #simplylippy and #365days365shades either.
I hope you all have a lovely Sunday. We’re off out for dinner tonight so I plan on having a nice glass of red to go with my Rebel lip!
