Dupe Alert: $1 Mac Rebel Lipstick!!

Get The Color For A Dollar!

Dupe For Mac's Rebel
I love collecting Mac lipsticks! But it can get a tad expensive to repurchase the same color at $15 a tube. So my new obsession has been finding a cheaper alternative for my favorite Mac lipsticks. My most used fall/winter color is Rebel. It's opaque in one swipe and the color is beautiful! So when looking for my dupe I wanted it to be similar in many aspects like color and texture. I was surprised to find the perfect match at my local Dollar Tree ( yes, Dollar Tree!). I was just looking through the make up section and came across the Milani HD Advanced Lip Color in Premiere Plum. I noticed that like the name states its a plum color so I wanted to try it out. As soon as I swatched it I noticed how similar it was to Rebel. The color was spot on, the only difference was the texture. Rebel is a satin finish so it doesn't have high intensity shine like the Milani one does. It has a glossy finish which at times I prefer! :-) The fruity smell is also a plus. I tested both colors out on different dates to compare the longevity. The results were the following: Rebel has a better lasting power but it's a bit drying after a while. Premiere Plum tends to fade away after 2 hours so I did have to reapply.
In the picture below you can see the similarities and finishes. Premiere Plum is on top and Rebel on the bottom.

Bottom line: You can't go wrong for just $1! I find that it's very comparable and the most inexpensive dupe out there. The only problem would be availability since the make up section at Dollar Tree changes constantly. The packaging for the Milani one is also super cute and compact. It's something you can easily keep in your makeup bag for those days that you want to spice it up. So if have a local Dollar Tree definitely give it a try! :-)
