I write encore because I have already reviewed Heroine here when it launched in 2012 as part of MAC's Reel Sexy collection. It remains till date my favorite purple lipstick and I'm so glad that MAC decided to make this a permanent star in their lipstick collection just in time to celebrate the new Pantone Color of 2014, Radiant Orchid.
For those who missed out on getting this last time, here's a quick summary of the lipstick:
1. It's a gorgeous vibrant purple fuchsia with blue undertones
2. It is in a matte finish with intense pigmentation. Even though its matte, the lipstick is pretty creamy and does not dry out lips. You can wear it either as a stain or go 'full on'
3. Lasts for nearly 6 hours and fades away leaving a purple stain
4. This is a color which is quite bold and needs a bit of makeup to stand out. On a bare face, Heroine will not look good. Just make sure its not too much coz you want your lips to be the focus. Pair it with lots of mascara, winged liner, light blush or bronzer and you are good to go.
Do check out this shade when it launches in India. This is a stunner!
