Mac Heroine lipstick and nightmoth liner review
Mac Heroine lipstick review

If you saw my Mac haul post a couple of weeks back you will already know that i recently added Heroine to my growing collection of Mac lipsticks. The bright purple hue is not a shade for everyone, its most definitely a stand out shade but as I'm not one who's afraid of a bit of colour i knew i had to try it. I am a fan of purple lip shades and already own a similar shade from Sleek which i reviewed a while back (review here) although i do prefer Heroine and i will explain why shortly it could be a great dupe for anyone looking for a cheaper alternative. Heroine is a bright Violet purple, i find it comes out slightly brighter than it appears in the tube but i personally love the colour, it's definitely bold but i don't think its too much. I think its a universally flattering shade that works on a variety of skintones due to the slightly pink undertones and i find it can look slightly different on different people. Its a matte lipstick that same as the Sleek one i mentioned earlier but this is where they differentiate for me, Heroine is not at all drying on the lips i don't even notice its there, its matte but still has the slightest sheen to in, the Sleek lipstick however in comparison feels incredibly drying on the lips i also don't think its such a nice vibrant purple. Wearabilty wise its lasts really well on me and doesn't take a lot of touching up.
I bought the Nightmoth liner to go with the lipstick, its a very dark plum liner that i thought would be great to go with it and add extra dimension to the lips. I actually like to line my lips with it and also slightly shade some areas to add more shape, kind of like contouring for your lips and i love how it looks. Combined with Heroine Nightmoth does make the lipstick look darker than if you were to wear it alone. I was also really impressed with the staying power of Nightmoth its the first Mac lip liner i've tried but it lasted even longer than the lipstick, great if you just want to top up your lipstick and not faff around with lip liner all day/night.

Overall i love the combination of them both, what do you think? 


  1. Such a gorgeous combination, it looks seriously great on you! If I'm honest, I tend to shy away from shades like this. I bought MAC's Cyber on a whim and whilst it's fab, it's very rare that I have the balls to wear it. x
