After having missed the boat with the last release of this gorgeous lip color, I thought I’d just have to let the idea go and either find a dupe or live without the perfect bright purple lipstick that I so craved. And then MAC heard my cries and released this into the permanent line! Huzzah!
I picked it up today and immediately applied it in the car. And it’s glorious. Even though it’s a matte shade, it doesn’t dry out my lips like their matte formula usually does. It’s actually quite weightless and comfortable.
It applies at full opacity with one swipe, but I have noticed that it is just ever so slightly patchy in the center of my bottom lip. I’ve not yet applied it over P+P Lip, however. I suspect it’ll perform better over that.
It’s super long-lasting. I’ve gone through a bottle of water and a hot tea and while there is transfer, it doesn’t migrate all over my mouth or look super-faded. It also does not feather, which is practically miraculous on me.
I’m so glad I picked this up. Violetta was a touch too sheer for my liking – I need full coverage on my not-pigmented-at-all lips. So the re-launch of this amazing color is a godsend.

Temptalia Review

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.
