I was looking for some purple lipsticks from MAC a few months back to match a few of my outfits and I chanced upon Temptalia’s post on the REEL SEXY Collection from MAC and I knew it right away that I had to have this for sure.
And then one day it happened, I was in a MAC store with my mom, when people were still talking about the Reel sexy Collection being launched in India, and I saw this beautiful lipstick lying there along with some other things from the same collection which I didn’t even notice. I tried this lipstick on my lips and the rest as they say…is history!!!!!
And I must say I was very lucky that day that this lipstick was in stock. We all know, how fast things finish up when they are Limited Edition and to have a piece of your choice is sheer luck. If you can still get it in stores, then don’t wait to read any more, grab it before its gone !!!!!!!!
The pigmentation is superb and you get fully opaque color in just one swipe . The lipstick is so packed with color, like it would probably burst out (like the Cadbury Eclairs!! btw, aren’t those ads really irritating..I so hate them…BOOM!)
The Texture is soft, and its so easy to apply. even though its a matte lipstick, I did not feel any dryness on the lips when the lipstick wore off.
The lipstick faded away beautifullu into a pink-ish-purple-ish something stain and was not patchy, as is the case with many matte lipsticks :/
Btw, the shade, Heroine, is such a stunner…It is a beautiful Purple with a little bit of magenta in there. It such a bold and in-your-face color that speaks volumes by itself. I do not know of any dupes for this. feel It’s a very unique shade with a fabulous name and a great formula.
I’ve paired the lipstick with MAC’s Lipliner in MAGENTA !
Do let me know in the comments below…
Have a great day everyone!!
