Happy Fall everyone! I hope the month of September is still kind to you. I bought this mac heroine lipstick almost a year ago. I know. I should've gotten rid of it already. But what had happened was, I lost it a couple of weeks after I bought it. But to my surprise, it was in one of the drawers in my bathroom the whole time. I was shocked when I found it about a week ago. I thought somebody had borrowed it for some reason. I first saw the Mac Heroine on a fashion blogger. The color looked so pretty on her I almost asked her if I could have it. But I went to the MAC website and got my own. The cost was about $16.00. I love purple and I wanted to experiment with different shades. Although this is a pretty shade, I don't think I will ever get my money's worth because I am about to throw this lipstick away without wearing it as often as I should have.
The packaging is fine. The shade does not show through the tube. But I like the chubby tube nonetheless.
The formula changed over time. I remember getting a matte finish the first time I tried the lipstick, but now I get a creamier, more moisturizing finish. The stick got thinner and sweatier too.
The staying power was more powerful almost a year ago. I did not have to reapply the lipstick over and over. But now that it is a little on the creamy side, it leaves stains on the glass when I try to drink something. No good!
The picture before the last one was taken a week after I bought the lipstick. And the last picture was taken this week. I will definitely buy this lipstick again because I love the color. I will try not to lose it next time. What are your thoughts on MAC lipsticks?
