Mac Reel Sexy Lipstick Swatch, Review & Dupes

Mac Reel Sexy Lipstick is a bright creamy coral. It has an amplified finish so is very opaque in coverage. This one has a satin finish and isn't too drying. As it's relatively pale it's worthwhile exfoliating and moisturising your lips before hand to minimise the lipstick clinging into any imperfections. As with all Mac lipsticks it has a sweet vanilla scent.

I typically get 5 hours from the Amplified formula although that goes down slightly if it's quite a pale shade. As with most limited edition coral lipsticks from Mac this sold out very quickly so I've gone through a few of my lipsticks to see if I can find a dupe. I think the closest are Mac's Jazzed or Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte in Peach Faubourg.
