Makeup Review | Mac Heroine Lipstick

Happy New Year!!!

I wish you guys the absolute best in 2015- it is going to be your best year yet, AMEN!

I’m starting off 2015 with a makeup review because you guys requested more of them this year. Enter, Mac’s Heroine lipstick…

For me, purple is a difficult lipstick colour to get right but Mac does it for me every single time- Rebel, Cyber, Up the Amp and now Heroine! It is described as a “bright violet/purple” but I find it really difficult to describe this colour. Sometimes, it appears dark purple, sometimes medium purple, other times lilac. I don’t know, all I know is that I love it! 

Being a matte finish, I love it even more because you get opaque perfection in about two swipes and it lasts for hours. I must say however that it’s one of Mac’s better matte formulas- not as drying which scores it extra points. 

Heroine is a pretty loud one so I tone it down by wearing it with a neutral eye….

Due to a very busy Christmas festivities schedule, these pictures were taken  around 6pm on the day, the sunlight was quickly fading away but I think I still managed to get a few decent shots 🙂 

So, how do you guys feel about Heroine? 

Peace and Love, 

Y.

      Most people with fuller lips always shy away from bold colours just make sure to line your lips with a darker shade of the lippie and you're good to go.
