using Pure Heroine Lipstick as well as Rapidblack Penultimate Eye liner from the new MAC Lorde collection
Erhm, seeing as exactly how this plummy number I’m using on my lips is from the new MAC Lorde collection, I most likely should’ve been listening to Lorde while I was taking these pics.
But I wasn’t.
I was really bumping The Cure’s In between Days.
I can see it now — Lorde as well as I hanging out, listening to Robert Smith as well as shooting the sh*t as we switch out the laces on our Doc Martins.
You can see it too, right?

This situation is much more likely than, oh, I dunno, hanging out with Lorde while listening to Taylor Swift tunes as well as practicing our cheerleading moves.
Call me crazy.
MAC Pure Heroine Lipstick, $16
Pure Heroine Lipstick is part of the small two-piece MAC Lorde collection, a restricted release release coming June 5 to maccosmetics.com as well as the MAC Times Square as well as fifth Avenue stores in nyc (international babes, you’ll be seeing it on the internet in July as well as at the MAC Champs-Élysées store in Paris), as well as it has MAC’s Amplified formula, which means smoooooth, intense, long-lasting color (between 6-8 hours, no joke!).
Some of my preferred MAC lippies are MAC Amplified household members, so I always get truly excited when MAC releases a new shade.
A dark, moody plum, it appears brighter on my lips than it performs in the tube.
I expected a blackened plum when I eliminated the cap as well as caught my very first glimpse, however it impersonates a plummy reddish wine on lips (at least on mine).
I’m betting that it’s one of those strong babes that looks just as remarkable on deeper skin tones as it looks on lighter lasses.
MAC Pure Heroine Lipstick Lip Swatch
Fall instantly springs to mind (fall springs?). I believe Pure Heroine is one of those lippies I’d reach for most frequently in the fall. I believe it’s great, however I’m not gonna lie — I was expecting more of a gothic blackened plum, as well as I’ll most likely layer it with something like MAC Nightmoth Lip Pencil to get that look.
Penultimate Eye liner in Rapidblack ($19.50), the other product in the launch, is a re-promote offered now in the MAC long-term line.
I mentioned it a couple weeks back in the MAC Maleficent collection post.
Basically, I believe it’s OK. It doesn’t transfer or smudge, which is great, however I discover the short felt tip a bit tough to control.
