Mac Heroine Review + Lip Swatch!


Hello My Lovelies!

How have you all been? I am currently experiencing the full effects of an Indian summer, and boy it’s hot here! As a result I have been craving ice lollies like crazy these past few days. Anyhoo! enough with the weather talk and on with the review 🙂


The lipstick of the moment is Mac’s Heroine! You know every time I hear this lipstick’s name, The song from Kareena Kapoor’s movie “Heroine” (you can listen to it hereMain Heeeeroine hooooon (I am a heroine) starts playing in my head! Wouldn’t it be crazy/awesome if Mac lipsticks introduced themselves that way? Cue.. Main Ruby Woo hoooon, Main All Fired Up hoooon (no pun intended, okay, yeah intended :P)

But, I digress. Where was I? Yes, Mac’s Heroine. Below I’ve taken some photos of when I had the lipstick on.

(Poked myself in the eye with the aforementioned “Faux Flowers”!)



1. Color

Mac Heroine is a bright violet/purple lipstick, on some it might even look like a red toned purple.

2. Finish

Heroine has “matte” written in the sticker below the lipstick tube, but really what it has is a creamy matte finish. It glides on effortlessly on the lips.

3. Coverage

It has a completely opaque color coverage. One swipe and the lipstick goes completely opaque. I usually swipe twice due to force of habit, but one swipe and the true color of the lipstick gets delivered on the lips.

4. Stay

On me the lipstick stays a good 5-6 hours before it starts to fade into a lovely red-ish purple-ish stain. The lipstick is neither drying nor hydrating.

5. Cost

It costs Rs. 1450 in India.



1. The lipstick glides on effortlessly on the lips.

2. It looks good when applied straight out of the tube as it is on the lips, but I also love wearing it as a stain, i.e. I apply the lipstick and then blot it down with a tissue to control the intensity of the color.


1. When I applied this lipstick, I realized that it has a tendency to stick to dry/flaky patch on my lips. So, it’s really important to exfoliate your lips before you wear this lipstick.


Well that’s it for now! Namaste!

    Looks stunning on you! With how pale I am, that would be a completely vampy color on me, but on you it’s perfect for the daytime or night
