Today’s review is going to be the MAC Heroine Lipstick. Once in a while, I want to try out some other colors other than the usual lipstick colors that I wear. When I was in the MAC store, I saw this along with other purple shades and started trying them on one by one. Finally, I chose this since it suited my skin tone. I wore this for a night out and paired it with black smoky eyes and I loved the overall look. So how is the MAC Heroine Lipstick? Read on to find out!

How Did MAC Heroine Lipstick Work For Me?

The MAC Heroine Lipstick comes in the usual classic black packaging with the trademark vanilla fragrance. The Heroine lipstick has a bright purple shade with slight blue undertones and has great pigmentation. Even though it is a matte lipstick, it is really creamy and goes opaque on the lips with just two swipes. It will usually stay on for 5 to 6 hours and when it fades, it leaves a very faint pink stain behind.

The MAC Heroine Lipstick is one that some people would find a little too odd of a color to wear on the lips but if you are looking to try something other than the usual reds, pinks or nude lipsticks, then this would be a good start. There are many purple shades in this range but this one suited me the best. My suggestion would be to try out some of the shades before choosing one. The MAC Heroine lipstick dupe is the Wet N Wild Ravin Raisin which costs only $1.99. Overall, the Heroine Lipstick from MAC is one those colors that is best for fall. It can give you that edgy or classic look based on how you pair it up with the rest of your makeup and outfit. I prefer wearing this for a night out with either smoky eyes or winged eyeliner with thick wispy lashes.
