Dupe Discovered: MAC Rebel Lipstick

Hello Pretties,

Today I am here with another somewhat close dupe of MAC lipstick in my favourite Drug-store brand “Maybelline“, the perfect fall/winter shade MAC Satin Lipstick in Rebel.

I was actually unaware that I am owning almost 3 similar shades out of which one is MAC.. πŸ˜‰

Dupe Discovered - MAC Satin Rebel, Maybelline Berry Brilliant and Revlon Smitten Lipstick Swatch

  • MAC Satin Lipstick in Rebel (Rs 1350 now .. πŸ™ ) – Rebel is a gorgeous juicy plum shade on lips with lovely satin finish, the formula is intensely pigmented and has buildable coverage. In first swipe it goes light pinkish plum but intensifies to a rich dark plum shade with subsequent swipes.
  • Maybelline Jewels Lipstick in Berry Brilliant ( Rs 350) – Berry Brilliant looks less intense and pinker than Rebel in the bullet and comes slightly more fuschia than plum on lips compared to Rebel. Formula is almost similar to Rebel with just tad less shine and more creamy feel
  • Revlon Just bitten Kissable Lip balm Stain – Smitten ( Rs 650) Smitten : Another dark berry pink shade but it is a lip crayon with staining pigments. The color looks much pinker on application but intensifies to a rich plummy pink shade with more swipes and given a few more minutes on lips. It imparts a lovely watery shine to lips but within few hours the shine reduces to a considerable extent. The pigments stains lips quite heavily and it will be hard to remove even with using a oil-based makeup remover.

Revlon Smitten and Maybelline Berry Brilliant are looking much lighter and pinker in swatches but they appear much darker and intense on lips, may be due to pigmentation!

Out of all three, if you ask me my favourite it is definitely “MAC Rebel” because it is more staining and true to its color compared toΒ Berry BrilliantΒ and non-drying even for 7-8 hours unlike Revlon Smitten Kissable lip balmΒ but if you bring the prices one has to pay I would say any of theΒ Maybelline Berry BrilliantΒ andΒ Revlon SmittenΒ will do, may be just a tad lighter than Rebel.

    I am not a fan of such shades as they don’t suit me πŸ™ but those were great. Maybelline Berry Brilliant and smitten are really close enough. Nice one dear! πŸ™‚

      I have been wanting this shade since long.. I was not sure initially but definitely I will use in colder months..:D

      Berry brilliant is quite lighter but on pigmented lips it can come close.. Though rebel is a clear winner for me.. πŸ˜€
