Lip of the Day: MAC Rebel and Ben Nye Vino

Hi Bellas,

Happy Monday!  It's time for another Lip of the Day.  This is a great Autumn Deep Red Combo that I wore in a recent video.  It's a little easier to wear then a bright red lip because of the darker, more subdued tone.  You can wear this during the day or night.
