Not too long ago, I saw that Mac collaborated with Lorde and came out with a lipstick named Pure Heroine. I don’t normally tend to gravitate towards really dark colors; however, as soon as I saw a picture of it I knew I just have to have it.
Pure Heroine is a limited edition lipstick that is described as a deep, rich shade of plum with an amplified finish.
One thing I love about amplified finishes, is that they glide right on and have a very creamy and smooth texture.
I truly love this color! Since it’s more of a deep purple as opposed to a bright purple, it’s not really a summertime color. However, I will be rocking this color fall/winter.
Would it be sad that I literally stalked the website until this became available? Because I totally did! It was released online on June 6, and I literally refreshed my screen every 5 minutes until it was available. LOL!! Sad right!
When using this, I found that it was a bit hard to work with. Only because it applied a tiny bit sheer in places. So you do have to work with it a bit. But if used with a lip liner as the base, it should be just fine.
Pure Heroine has a nice glossy finish. It also lasted about 3-4 hours with eating and drinking. It does leave behind a bit of a stain.
Overall, I do love this lipstick and I’m so glad that I added it to my collection!
