MAC Rebel is a cult classic and for good reasons, almost everyone I know is a fan! There's just something about it that strikes the perfect balance between pink and purple undertones that looks super flattering on all skin tones but in my opinion is the bomb.com (yes, i just used that haha) on South Asian skin tones. I wasn't really looking for dupes of MAC Rebel, but the other day I was clearing out my lipsticks and realized that I had one too many lipsticks that looked a bit too much like Rebel haha - guess when you've found a color you really love, you're subconciously constantly buying similar shades from different brands.
Here's a little break down of the dupes I've collected -
Wet n Wild Megalast Lipstick in Sugar Plum Fairy
Easily the most pigmented, even more so than Rebel. This is what I would call the 'perfect' dupe - seriously!
NYX Butter Lipstick in Hunk Beau Goose
The sheer formula of the lipstick might throw you off, but trust me, its practically the same thing as Rebel just in a different formulation. If you're one for sheer lipsticks, this one will be the best pick out of the lot for you.
NYX Matte Lipstick in Aria
I swear this is the dupe for the above mentioned NYX lipstick and obviously MAC Rebel too - the only difference is the I feel like it has some voilet undertones that really peak through.
Colourpop Lippie Stix in Flawless
This is admit is not a bang on dupe, but it is pretty dam close. Think MAC Rebel with darker plum tones, and you'll be left with Flawless. Stunning color nonetheless!
Which did you think was the most perfect dupe? Let me know in the comments below!
