MAC x Lorde Pure Heroine Limited Edition Lipstick | £15.50 buy here (for a limited time)
Last month I bought the MAC x Lorde Pure Heroine lipstick as an impulse buy whilst shopping online. I already own quite a few purple lipsticks (post to come soon) but I always jump at the opportunity to add my growing collection when the opportunity arises. The fact that Pure Heroine is a Limited Edition Lipstick was also another deciding factor for me when I bought it. I didn't want for the lipstick to come and go and then for me to crave something I couldn't get which (usually happens with me).
Pure Heroine up close and swatched on my hand
Pure Heroine is described by MAC as a 'deep plum', in an amplified finish. The colour is quite pigmented but with a creamy/shiny finish to the lipstick. I actually expected Pure Heroine to be slightly darker in colour than it is, but thankfully when applied the colour is pigmented however, it is just not as intense/darker as I intially expected.
For those of you wondering Pure Heroine is very different in shade and tone to MAC's Heroine lipstick. Heroine is a lighter fuschia purple shade whilst Pure Heroine is a darker purple shade with pink undertones but has more of a gloss/sheen finish to it.
Wearing MAC x Lorde Pure Heroine Lipstick with MAC Nightmoth Lip Liner
As you can see from the above photo I am wearing Pure Heroine with Nightmoth lip liner and I think they pair perfectly well together (If you don't already own Nightmoth please believe me when I say you need it!). Pure Heroine is a definitely a welcomed addition to my lipstick collection especially for the Autumn/Winter months.
If you are interested in buying this lipstick please remember that it is a Limited Edition lipstick and I am not sure it will be around for (not that I am trying to convince you to buy it).
