Lipstick time! So I recently caved and purchased MAC's Rebel lipstick. While I had only just bought the Ulta3 lipstick, I desperately wanted to try Rebel after seeing so many gorgeous swatches of it. I noticed that these two looked a little bit similar, so I thought I would compare...
The Ulta3 looks darker in the tube compared to the MAC. But how do they swatch?
Ulta3 Sweet Currant
The Ulta3 is a lot sheerer, and on the lips it comes out less dark and leans more towards pink than anything else. Rebel swatches as a deep berry shade on me and has more of a vampy look! Rebel is also a little drier on the lips, but seems to last several hours longer than Sweet Currant. I suppose that can be expected when theres such a huge price difference ($36 vs $2.95). I definitely would not say this is a dupe, but Sweet Currant might be a good option if you don't want something as intense as Rebel. Overall, I think I do prefer Rebel, but Sweet Currant is still nice and it certainly isn't a waste of (less than) $3 :)
Have you tried either of these? What do you think?
