MAC Satin Lipstick in Rebel: My New Addiction!

Pink shades have always been my comfort zone when it comes to lipsticks. When Migs asked me if I wanted a MAC lipstick from Macy's, I told him that I want the "Impassioned" shade, but if it's not available I'll just settle for "Rebel". 

This particular shade made me curious for years. It's really intimidating in the tube, but a lot of bloggers were raving about it. This MAC lipstick has become one of the all-time favorites. To surprise me, Migs decided to get both lipsticks in Impassioned and Rebel. He also gave me a full-size of D and G Light Blue perfume. He's just the best! Thank you Cupcake! :) When he sent me the picture of this tube via Viber, I got really giddy and excited. It was my very first Plum shade from the brand, and I don't know if it will suit me. This was also my first-time to have a lipstick that I didn't have the chance to swatch myself, exciting!

Fast-forward to the day that I finally got my pasalubong-- I surprised myself when I fell in love with this shade the first time I wore it. Definitely love-at-first-swatch! It is currently my addiction and I've been wearing it almost everyday since. I even forgot about the MAC Impassioned, which is currently being ignored in my stash right now. This was supposed to be my second choice. Right?

SWATCHED: MAC Satin Lipstick in Rebel
MAC Rebel is a shade that can be described as a reddish-plum. The Satin formulation is closer to Creemesheen rather than Amplified though this is more opaque. It is also buildable so whenever I want a lighter shade, I can blot the product after application and I'm left with a sheer raspberry color on my lips. I can't think of anything wrong about this product. It is listed on the permanent shades as well so I can re-purchase anytime. I will definitely re-purchase by the way, and I don't mind getting it for 1,000 pesos here too. That's how much I love it!

LIP SWATCH: MAC Satin Lipstick in Rebel
MAC Rebel brightens my face and makes me appear fairer. If you have a warm skin tone, you can wear this shade to make your face look brighter. I have always thought of dark lippies to have the Ursula vibe, but now that I am older, I am starting to appreciate them. Finally, I surpassed my lippie adolescence of Pinks and now maturing to Plums. MAC Rebel is making me re-think my next lipstick purchases by considering Plums instead. I am thanking the lipstick Gods for this really gorgeous shade and Migs (of course) for purchasing it for me. Thank you Miggy!
