Soo after reading that MAC was making Heroine part of their permanent line, I ran to their website and saw I could order it ahead of the January arrival in-stores!! I could barely be bothered to put down my purse before ripping through the packaging.
Sigh, so pretty!
Ain’t she gorgeous?
Here it is on me:
It looks so intimidating at first, but then you put it on and it’s like “hello sexy mama!!”. I got full, opaque coverage in like ONE swipe of the tube. It wasn’t horrifically drying and lasted for a while. I had to scrub my lips to actually get it off & was still left with a pretty pink tint on my lips. I think everyone should run and grab this. This was the best $15 I have spent in a hot minute. Have you picked it up yet?? Use code NEXT to get free overnight shipping!
Quickie review today, the Bite ‘Best of Bite Lip Set‘. I am so happy I pulled the trigger and bought this adorable Bite mini set today from Sephora (using my VIB 20% of course!) It retails for $25 and includes four 0.05oz Bite High Pigment Pencils. A single Bite lip pencil costs $24 at 0.09oz, so you’re getting a great deal and you get to try 4 colors! The tin is about the size of an Altoid box has a full mirror, and I love them! Smooth, creamy, pigmented, and a great price point!

Here’s some quick swatches:
Cranberry – beautiful blue based red. This is a limited edition color and it’ll be great for the holidays!
Quince – in person, looks wayyy pinker and not at all like Cranberry, some reason my phone is pulling in more red. Definitely not a dupe, see my hand swatch for more accurate color.
Madeira – The nude. Meh, this was the one I was least excited for TBH. It looks far better in this person than it does in real life I think. Maybe it’s just this lightening that it looks ok. In artificial lighting, I look sightly sick lol. I’ll probably mix it with others or give it away/trade if someone is dying for it.
Rhubarb – A prettttty pinky/purple color. Darker and not as red IRL. My second favorite after cranberry.
Swatch on hand – cranberry, quince, rhubarb, madeira
All shades very easy to apply and only need to go over the lips like 1x for full coverage. Automatically sharpen and totally portable, I adore them and am happy I picked them up!
I am expecting 2 packages from Sephora later this week (the Kat Von D Spellbinding Set and Sephora Super Stars) which I can’t wait to show you guys! Did you haul anything great with your 20% off?
