I have been wearing MACs Rebel religiously and i'm in love with it. It really does work well on all skin types but I want to try something a little darker too.

Another nice violet color that I recommend would be Va Va Violet by revlon. It is such a nice, vibrant color.

Hi love!
For MAC's Sinister lipstick when you get a chance pair it up with MAC lip liner in the color "Vino",they compliment each other very well. :]

ps. I just started to watching your videos!Your awesome!
