Rebel Rebel...Mark Rebel Rose Quad.

First, let me get this out of the way:


Ahh, that's better :) Thank you Mr. Bowie for setting up this review.

Once again Mark has graced us with another fabulous pre-made eye shadow quad named Rebel Rose (to go along with a new fragrance of the same name). In the past, these have been some of the best products Mark has to offer (Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is the 4th shadow quad to come out- including the amazing Bohista quad, the extra-smokey Femme 4 quad, and another quad that I can't remember because I never got, help?).






The Rebel Rose quad comes with 4 shadows- Rebel, Saucy, Corset, and Lovestruck. Two of the shadows, Corset and Lovestruck, are part of their regular eye shadow line.



The first shadow, Rebel, is a shimmery white- suitable for highlighting. Under the light it seems to have a slight pink sheen to it. It's not overly shimmery with no obvious sparkles or glitter. The second shade Saucy is actually a repeat from the Femme 4 quad I mentioned above, but is not part of the regular line. It's a dark smokey sparkly purple with a hint of blue in the sparkles. Next is Corset, which, if I'm not mistaken again, has just been made permanent not to long ago (it was limited for the longest time before). This is a complex shade (that I really like) as I don't quite find it black, and I don't quite find it grey, but I also sense hints of purple when held at certain angles. The last shade, Lovestruck, has long been part of the regular line. It's a bright shimmery pink that bears resemblance to MAC's Sushi Flower (I have this as well but think Lovestruck is much better in terms of texture and shimmer and not as coral as Sushi).



When I saw this for the first time in the demo catalog, I wasn't so sure that these colors would go together. But seeing them in person I see how the complete package can make an attractive look. All in all this is another top-notch release from mark!

Hmmm...boyfriend hates RR perfume (says it smells like old lady, which in guy speak means "too much rose") but I really like that quad, lol.

I got this palette too, and I love it. I like the color combinations and the shades are quite pigmented.

I also got the perfume. I didn't think I would like it, but I am addicted to it. It smells kind of spicy on me.

Hmmm, I might buy this. Thanks! :)

@Aly: I haven't really liked a Mark fragrance since Wonderfleur :(

@T: Isn't it pretty? I haven't played around with it on my eyes- but definitely a weekend palette. I haven't tried the perfume yet, I just smelled it- I'm assuming it would smell differently once it's on.

Gorgeous palette!
I had Sushi Flower and hated it because it always felt like it was difficult to get the product to show up well on my skin.

@Morgan: LOL- thank you!!! :D

@Phyrra: Yeah, me too. I never use it but I still have it. I got it when I was a Senior in High School...because it was an exact match for a sweater I bought *facedesk*
