You'd be forgiven for thinking that the MAC Rebel lipstick is just that - dark, gothic and way too scary to wear out in public, but the colour of the tube is actually very deceptive! When applied it's a lot warmer and redder, and it's surprisingly very flattering for Asian and dark skin. I'd describe it as a very deep, raspberry red with a semi matte texture
It is the perfect dark lip because it doesn't wash you out and it doesn't make your lips disappear - result! Strangely, I also feel a lot more grown up when I wear this - there's something very sophisticated and refined about a deep red lip.
To make it day appropriate I skip bottom eyeliner (it makes the whole look too vampy) and add loads of mascara instead.
PS - A BIG thank you to Sam who sent me this lipstick after I entered a competition on her fabulous blog. I never win anything so it was a lovely little treat!!
Has anyone else tried Rebel by MAC? What other dark lipsticks would you recommend?
