Hey everyone!!! So today I have received my brand new MAC Lorde Pure Heroine (Amplified) lipstick. I was pretty surprised that MAC didn’t specifically customize the lipstick like MAC did for Rhianna. As stated in my last post Pure Heroine is a deep rich shade of plum with a amplified finish. It has a creamy consistency to it with shine, it feels like you are putting on vaseline on your lips so you don’t have to worry about your lips drying out. What I like about Pure Heroine that it has shine to it which gives your lips a luscious juicy feel look, if that is the look you’re going for. Also it’s a deep pretty color that will look good on anyone. What I don’t like about Pure Heroine is that not a matte finish, for me a lipstick that has a matte finish has lasting staying power. Lipstick that has a matte finish has a pretty vintage look and finish that complements and enhances anyone skin tone. But at the same time matte lipsticks are very drying!!! Like all my other amplified finish lipsticks from MAC I constantly have to reapply my lipstick meaning I will go through a tube of lipstick quickly. Pure Heroine is not as vibrant as Heroine if Pure Heroine was a matte finish I feel the color will be very vibrant and pop more. I also used my Heroine lip pencil to fill in my lips before applying Pure Heroine, I didn’t like the way it look at all due to the fact Pure Heroine is a darker shade than Heroine. So I recommend finding a deep purple or deep plum lip pencil to fill your lips, with a matching lip pencil for Pure Heroine will probably help make Pure Heroine have more of a popping effect. MAC should have come out with a matching lip pencil for Pure Heroine, I am the type of person who likes to have a matching lipstick and matching lip pencil thats just me. I notice that when applying Pure Heroine on my lips I had blotch spots on my lips, I had to put on two to three layers on my lips to get full coverage due to Pure Heroine being a thinner consistency and a cream finish. Compared to Heroine you only need 1 layer due to the thick consistency of Heroine because it’s a matte finish. I personally don’t consider Pure Heroine as amplified I feel Pure Heroine is more of a creme sheen, I feel MAC labeled Pure Heroine as amplified because of the color of the lipstick. I recently checked MACs website and they have not sold out yet, I have a feeling that not a lot of people will purchase the limited-edition of Pure Heroine because it doesn’t have the same wow factor as its predecessor Heroine. I give Pure Heroine 2 1/2 stars. If you have Heroine you should stick to that since it’s a permeant color that MAC sales now. Don’t get me wrong Pure Heroine is still a pretty color if you want to purchase the limited-edition lipstick you should. Just remember the way a lipstick looks on me will probably look different on you, so don’t base your final decision on the way Pure Heroine looks on me.
