Finally, the elusive Heroine! 
Guys the struggle to get this lipstick was real. After calling both MAC stores in Lagos about a million times and getting "huh? heroine? err we don't have it" over and over and checking several online vendors with no luck I got fed up and added it to my list of  "to buy lipsticks" fast forward to some months later, I had my brother buy me some lipsticks and got a call saying he couldn't find Heroine anywhere. I was annoyed. what was so special about this lipstick sef hiss! my shakara didn't last long though cause I had my dad hunting it down a month later! Lol this time around I got lucky! 

 I like the colour but honestly, I don't know if it is worth all the hype. Someone even described the colour as "gentian violet" LOL!
Either way, the addict in me is happy to have it in my collection.

Taken indoors minimal light, no flash

Taken Indoors in natural light, No flash.

Do you have Heroine? what do you think? If you don't would you buy it?

Cheers to the weekend!! 



  1. Have read loads of reviews about heroine, not sure I cn get it tho.. nice swatches

    1. Good to know I'm not the only one that reads a lot of reviews on one product.
      Thanks for stopping by

  2. I have Heroine. I like it. I have pigmented lips so i work around it with something lighter underneath so it would pop. Great with the heroine lipliner, currant and even nightmoth (All by MAC).

    1. I've had my eye on nightmoth for a while but since I don't even put the liners I have to use often I'm holding out. I paired Heroine with Purple rain (NYX) and it turned out ok. I will use Prune next time and see which I prefer.
      Thanks for the liner suggestions. Xx

  3. Chioma!!! If you can hear me, this is the perfect shade of purple you're looking for so stop disturbing me for swatches. I like the shade buh no, I won't buy it except if the junkie in me wants to
    Btw, your people are very nice o. I can imagine asking my dad to hunt down a makeup product for me.. haha.. it'll be the biggest joke of the year

    1. Chioma did you hear?! Lol girl, I have a way of getting them to feed my addiction ;)
      Thanks for stopping by xx

  4. I love that shade of purple.been trying to hunt for a cheaper dupe of it but no success so I mite jst take d leap n purchase it.

    1. Hi Cheechee, I wore Heroine again today and I'm falling more in love with it. It's not as drying as 'viva glam I' I've read that Maybelline 'Violet intrique' is a possible dupe for Heroine so keep an eye out for it. Or take the leap! I get a lot of compliments when I wear Heroine.

      Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Lol...I have been on the hunt for Heroine but I haven't found it yet. The MAC stores here, all their products are out of stock. So annoying. I don't even bother anymore. I guess I'll have to go through your route. It looks so pigmented and such a pretty purple.

    1. The MAC stores here are such a buzz kill! Yeah it is a pretty purple! I hope you get your hands on it soon.
      Thanks for stopping by :) xx
