Love Heroine In My Life! - Mac Heroine Lipstick Review with FOTDs

Mac Heroine Lipstick just released last week in the Mac Reel Sexy Collection. I've been planning on  buying this lipstick for a while now and as I saw the swatches on Temptalia.com I knew right away that I had to have this lipstick in my life! I fell in love with the description of this lipstick instantly. First of all it was a matte finish and I sure do love matte finishes as you all may know. 
Big Matte Lipstick Lover Here!
Although, this is considered a "matte" finish...it's still applies creamy, not over drying while feeling  moisturized.  I'm guessing Mac is trying to improve their matte lipsticks. Well, I'm glad they are!
Secondly, I love the purple magenta bold colour of this lipstick. I find it very unique and it's something I do not have at all.I've been looking for something like this for a while now.  I don't have  Mac Violetta lipstick either so I can't compare.  

I am a person who always uses lip liners everytime I wear lipstick or lipgloss. I just feel incomplete without it.

Below, I experimented with Mac Grape Lipliner.....
Here, I experimented with Mac Magenta Lipliner....
It's a total different colour right?
It's really about what look you are trying to achieve and want to have. I'm more into the magenta pink tones though....

Pro:

-Matte while not being over drying (I see this as a good thing!)
-Unique bold colour
-Long Lasting
-Wearable in any season
-Can easily use lipliners to give this unique colour different tones

Con:
-It's limited edition. :( Get it while it's there!

Overall Rating: 5/5 
It's an amazing lipstick!!! I love it!!!

Now my second look....I am in love with! I took many pictures too!
 
 
 I used one of my favourite eyeshadow called Laura Mercier Black Karat. It's just so gorgeous and it's similar to Mac's Guilt by Association which was limited edition. 
In these pictures the lipstick appears like Mac Gladiola lipstick but it's really much more different with purple tones in it. Very unique!

Cheryl♥ said...

I've been debating getting this lipstick...you are making me want it even more now! It looks beautiful on you.

You absolutely killed this lipstick. Rock on!

Sue said...

I bought it and absolutely love it! is Grape lip liner a pro? permanent? limited edition?

Arezu said...

I'm not usually into bold lipsticks, but I can't believe that's a matte colour - it's so creamy!

I love both looks, but the second is my favourite! I would never think to pair that lipstick with the eye look, but it looks really good!

This looks so stunning. Did you know Illamasqua released a liquid lipstick that's similar to this color? I don't know if it's an exact dupe, though.

You inspired me into the world of make-up and MAC. I found you on youtube a few years back when looking for a purple eyeshadow look for a bank function for work. I was then following you regularly and buying many things you recommended and have benefited from. I am very sad that now you have removed almost all your video's. I will admit I miss all your updates EOTD, FOTD, and hauls. I hope you have a sucessful career in whatever you desire and will check out for you occasionally to see if you're back in the make-up blog game.
