FOTD Featuring MAC Heroine and Natural Hairstyle Side Swept Twistout

I missed out on Heroine during the first two times that MAC released it. I skipped it because I already own Violetta and it appears to be the same color, but with a different finish. I love mattes, so of course, I was a remorseful skipper.

I was delighted to know that MAC was going to re promote this color. However, I did have a bit of anxiety because more often than not, MAC releases collections earlier than they say they are going to. It has been my experience that much sought after colors are often sold out within seconds.

MAC - Heroine (Matte)

I decided to check my local Macy's department store.
I was glad I did.

MAC - Heroine Lip Glass
 The MUA tried to upsell the lip pencil to me, but I was on a BUDGET! All three items are $15 each.
I broke down and purchased the lipstick and the lip glass. While I enjoy Matte lipsticks, I often play around with the finish. I wanted to buy the lip glass to intensify the color.

I love the lip glass! It's so opaque!
