When MAC Heroine Lipstick($18 CDN) was finally available to order last week, I didn’t even think twice. Click, click, free express shipping code and BAZINGA! she was mine and in my hands 2 days later.

MAC Heroine Lipstick is a matte lipstick, but goes on with a bit of sheen at first. As you wear it, it does become more matte looking on the lips.

MAC Heroine Lipstick is not drying at all and is really comfortable to wear! I love MAC’s matte lipstick formulas actually. Heroine lasts FOREVER, even on my dry lips. I get a good 5 hours of wear time, probably longer if I didn’t get hungry after that. #thisatgirlneedstoeatbutshouldreallyNOT

It wears down beautifully, leaving a reddish purple stain on the lips.

wearing MAC Heroine Lipstick

MAC Heroine Lipstick is not for the faint of heart. It’s an in your face, bright purple lipstick! For me it’s my new “red” lipstick. Reds look HORRIBLE on me right now, so this will be the lipstick I reach for when I want some drama! To be honest, I’ll be wearing it all the time because I love it that much. In fact, I wore it to go grocery shopping the day I got it. If you love all things violet like I do, then get MAC Heroine Lipstick. You won’t be sorry!

So guess whose refrigerator decided to die a couple of days before Christmas? SIGH. And of course, the new one can’t be delivered until January 4th. This is one time I’m glad I live where my garage is cold enough to substitute for a fridge! And wow, I was surprised at how many people were appliance shopping today!Β 

  • Hey Tracy, whoa this IS a lot of drama! Don’t think I’ll pluck up the courage to try it anytime soon, but it sure looks great on you!

    Soooo sorry to hear about your fridge! Glad to hear the garage is at least cold enough to store all that Christmas food though!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      :D:D thanks Sunny! Yeah, dang thing. I asked the repair man how long fridges are supposed to last-not even 10 years was the answer! LIKE WHAT?

      • Oh now I’m getting anxious about mine breaking down LOL No place in my house that’s cold enough to function like a fridge!

  • Aww I’m sorry to hear about refrigerator!
    At least you look gorgeous wearing this purple lipstick. πŸ˜‰
    This looks like an amplified version of Radiant Orchid shade. Love it on you!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Haha thanks Lena! It kind of is, hey? I need to get a gentler version!

  • It’s such a pretty shade!! I love violet lippies but always end up pairing them with a gothier look. Oh, so my parents’ freezer broke down a few weeks back, so they threw all their stuff out on the balcony! And it totally was fine! Thank goodness it was in the negatives for them when that happened!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Awww, man violets on you would be AMAZING. I need to see it please!

  • OMG, your fridge did not crap out on you TODAY!? That bastard! But yes, you’re lucky in a sense that you live in a habitat perfect for igloos and/or freezing foodstuffs easily in the comfort of your garage! Amaze! FACT: this lipstick is killer on you. Oh my goodness, I LURVES it. Perfect violet on you if there ever was one! i was cracking up at your “heroine chic” Instagram comment, btw! Touche!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      It actually crapped out on Thursday the bastard. πŸ™‚
      Thanks haha! Heroine chic-I LOVE 13 GOING ON THIRTY.

  • Emma Bovary

    Worst timing ever, why does that always happen? We just had a stack of bills come in, thankfully not due until January though. I think that a lot of people must be getting appliances under the tree this year πŸ˜‰ This sort of lippy shade is not really my cup of tea, though it looks quite rad on you!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks Emma! December is the WORST. We never seem to have enough money at this time of year!

  • So I could never ever pull this color off but it’s pretty darn cool. It totally fits your style, too πŸ™‚

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      πŸ˜€ thanks Catherine! πŸ™‚

  • Lily

    Darn the refrigerator. It’s trying to be funny I tell you.
    And this violet? Looks amazingly edgy on you!! You’re the trendiest hawt mama I know, Tracy!!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      LOL hahaha it’s not funny to a fat girl!! πŸ˜›
      Thanks Lily! HAHAHA that’s so weird to me LOL

  • Eugenia

    Lil Sis, EVERYTHING looks good on you. And now I want violet to be my new red as well — so happy that this baby will be available at all MAC counters in a few short days! I’ll definitely be snagging one!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      LOL haha thanks Big Sis! But reds do NOT look good at all. πŸ™‚ I think it’ll be amazing on you too with that blonde hair!

  • holy awesome!!! this color looks very very similar to the revlon matte balm in purple but looks like it applies /so/ much more smoothly. it looks great on you@

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks!! xo I don’t think I have 2 Revlon matte balms-one SUCKS and one is brilliant. They’re so hit and miss.

  • Gaelle

    It complements the pink hair perfectly! Looks great on you. And I hear ya about appliances, my washing machine died last week, stress!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks Gaelle! xo
      Right? It’s like they die when they know it’ll stress you out!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Haha thanks Teri! πŸ™‚

  • lyn

    It looks gorgeous on you! Absolute love! I really like purple / violet lipsticks so this is something I must check out.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks! Yes do it!

  • Gorgeous….its amazing how you can rock purple lipstick and pink hair and still look like one of the classiest women. But with a punk twist. Ah…you are my style role model right now! Rock on!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      LOL hahaha thanks! Never been called classy before! And you are so SWEET.

  • hahahaha I love that you wore this grocery shopping, you’re too cool. It looks awesome on you! Reminds me that I gotta start wearing my non-red lipsticks, bet they’re all feeling unloved.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      :D:D yeah, they gotta get used to the real me!

  • It’s so much more amazing than I thought it would be! I want it!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      :D:D It’s PERFECT.

  • Liz

    Damn. RIP fridge. πŸ™ Going back to the lipstick, I love the idea of this being a red substitute! I love red lips so much right now but this purple scares me to death. πŸ™‚

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Hahaha glad you love reds now! Me, not so much. Kind of hate them actually can you believe it?

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    πŸ˜€ It is really bright!

  • rachlovespenguins

    Wow that is purple. Definitely not the colour for me, but it sure looks awesome on you! And glad to hear that the fridge at least had the courtesy to break during the winter when you could store things in the garage. Ours always seem to quit working when it’s hot outside…

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks! Grrr that fridge. SO RUDE haha.

  • Toya

    FRIG I CAN’T HANDLE HOW EDGY AND BADASS YOU LOOK TRACY!!!!!!! Seriously, stop it. I’m going to do something drastic soon just so I can look half as cool. JEEZ girl.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      LOL HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA you are too much Toya. xo Thank you! You already ARE way cooler.

  • I freaking love this lipstick shade!!!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Oh Vita-it’s MADE for you!

    Nope-I was going to order it, but heard it was kind of tuggy if you have dry lips. Yes?

    • I am still learning Disqus…forgive me for not answering sooner! I find Illamasqua’s lipsticks to be drying, so exfoliate and apply a nice balm beforehand. You should be fine after that!

  • Rae

    Love this color. Honestly, I think it’s one of the more wearable purples. Unlike those really blue-y purple ones that are kind of tricky to wear.
