This post is coming about a week late, but I thought I'd share it wish you anyway. When I heard MAC's famous Heroine was making a comeback I marked my calendar immediately! I've seen this shade all over Instagram, Facebook & the blogospher & I NEEDED to have it. So when their Fashion Sets collection came out 2 weeks ago I was prepared to do some damage.
**Warning!! This will be a picture heavy post!**
As you can see, I had to get a back-up of Heroine & Embrace me as well. I LOVE pink lipsticks; I can never have enough of them.
From Left to Right: Embrace Me, Silly, Ablaze & Heroine
On to the lip swatches!
MAC describes it as a bright fushsia cream. It doesn't really come off like that in this photo--here it's showing closer to silly's color--but it is a really, really intense pink. It's still not as intense as Candy Yum-Yum, but it's pretty damn close.
I did swatch this with the lip pencil, but it looks just the same without it.
MAC describes it as a bright pink cream. It definitely lives up to that description being just a few shades lighter than Embrace Me. These two look FAB together of a nice ombre lip.
MAC describes it as a bright apricot cream. I absolutely love this shade. When I purchased it I thought it was gonna be more along the lines of Morange-- I guess the name kinda made me think of orange flames lol. But I do like the color & it looks great on a variety of skin tones. I also wore the lip pencil under this.
**I know the fuzziness is horrible, IDK what's going on lately, but I WILL edit this AGAIN once I get a better picture. But here's one so you can see what the color looks like on. The quality of the photo isn't changing the color at all.**
MAC describes it as a bright violet/purple. LOVE the color, but I was expecting more. People caused a ruckus over this thing and to be honest I think Daddy's Little girl from the Archie's Girl Collection is the same thing. Click here to see my swatches of that. (note: I will redo this swatch as well, it came out looking like a bright pink)
All these lippies have a matte finish, which you all know if my fave 'cause they last longer than any other finishes.
The last think I purchased from this collection was antiqued eye shadow I used it on a client at MAC & I fell in love with it.
Stay tuned for some looks using these products & so really fun, easy lip recipes too.
