MAC Heroine Lipstick

MAC Heroine Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “bright violet/purple.” It’s a medium-dark, red-toned purple with a satin finish. Heroine originally launched with Reel Sexy last March. MAC Seductive Intent is slightly lighter and pinker. MAC Strong Woman is darker, purpler. MAC Violetta has a light shimmer but is otherwise a worthy dupe to consider.

It will shock absolutely nobody that Heroine has already sold out (and in all forms but the polish) on MAC’s website, but do not fear, as it is a normal launch and will be hitting stores and counters next week as well as retailers like Nordstrom, Macy’s, etc.  Heroine has a creamy consistency that glides on well without tugging or pulling on the lips.  It has full, opaque color coverage and wears well for six hours and does leave a reddish stain behind. It’s neither drying nor hydrating.
