I was recently sent some makeup by NV Colour Cosmetics* and as soon as I saw one of the lipsticks I got a little bit excited. Rebel by Mac is one of my favourite lipsticks, and I think I have found a very close dupe in this NV lipstick in the shade Fever.
|NV www.nvcolour.com/shop/lips/nv-fever-lipstick* £6.00|
|Mac www.maccosmetics.co.uk/product/Rebel/Lipstick £15.50|
As you can see from the images above, first two photos are Fever and the second two are Rebel, the lipsticks are extremely similar. They look quite different in the swatches on my hand below but on the lips I can barely tell them apart. So much so that it took me ages to figure out which shade was which when I was choosing the photos for this post. The NV one is a little darker and more purple toned whereas Rebel is a lot more pinky. However they both make gorgeous winter shades and would suit anyone if you dare to go that dark. I think they look gorgeously gorthic without washing you out, they are both definitely more fashionista than scene girl (not that there's anything wrong with scene girls, I used to try and be one when I was a teenager, one day I'll show you a photo!). I am so glad I have found this dupe for less than half of the price of the Mac one!
