I’m not one to shy away from bold lip color, however upon purchasing this one I was a little intimidated. It looked REALLY freakin purple. The first time I wore it was this weekend when we were running around town doing errands and I really liked how it looked on me. I think natural other makeup is a must for this shade – I don’t like looking too overdone. I lined my lips with MAC’s lip pencil In Synch which seemed to minimize the lipstick bleeding. I love the matte finish and the boldness of this color. It’s fun and edgy. Today I’m wearing it at work and I’m still loving it. It’s an easy lipstick to just throw on and look like you spent a lot of time on your makeup. It’s funny though – when people ask me what lipstick I’m wearing and I tell them Heroine, they look at me like I have 10 heads. Then I have to say “as in female hero, not the drug.” Sigh.
Heroine reminds me a lot of another MAC shade that I LOVE – Flat out Fabulous. I think FOF is pinker than Heroine, but both are bold with a matte finish (read that post here). Another one to add to my makeup family! If you want this shade, get it here!
Hope you guys are having a good week, talk soon! xo
