I have been trying to hold off buying new make up because I have been trying to be wiser with my spending. The itch to get new products is still there though so what I have been doing to get the similar “high” that buying new stuff brings is to shop my stash. I have an insane amount of stuff that I haven’t used in a while so I thought this would be a great way to rediscover old loves, figure out new ways to use existing products and still get that “high”.
One of the things I rediscovered is my MAC lipstick in the shade Rebel. I was feeling a bit of a vampy lip last week to match my Doc Martens and Rebel was just the perfect choice. Rebel + Doc Martens = Perfection in my book! I used to wear this a lot because I always felt empowered and strong whenever I did. It’s funny how a lipstick can change your entire mood, don’t you think?
It took a while for me to get my hands on this lipstick because at the time, it was always out of stock here. One of my closest friends knew I have been wanting this lipstick so when she found it in Hong Kong, she immediately snatched it up for me! #ILoveMyEnablerFriends.
I wore this for about six to seven hours and only reapplied once but the colour stayed on like a boss LOL. After about the seventh hour and after eating and drinking, it still left a beautiful stain.
This is definitely one of my favourites – in fact I featured it on my Top 5 Lipsticks post. It’s sexy and vampy and mysterious and just all around wow! If you’ve been wanting this lipstick, but have been holding off from buying it – I say go for it! You’ll never go wrong. You can wear it as a stain for a more subtle look, full on straight from the tube for extra sexiness or you can wear it with a darker lipliner to make it even more vampy.
I am happy I “shopped my stash”. I have since found more products that I want to start incorporating into my current make up routine so stay tuned!!!
