MAC Lorde (Pure Heroine Lipstick)

Hello Friends! Just dropping in to share the new limited-edition lipstick from MAC's collaboration with Lorde.


PURE HEROINE deep plum (amplified)
$16.

Available North America June 5, 2014 at maccosmetics.com, MAC Times Square, and MAC Fifth Avenue
International July 2014 at maccosmetics.com and MAC Champs Elysees


The color itself surprised me, as I thought it was going to be much darker and, dare I say, scarier. While, yes, it would be considered a darker shade, the bright warmth of it made the shade a little friendlier to me.
However, it is a little on the daring side for me, as it is very plum.
While I'm not a huge fan of dark lips in general on me, I got brave and put this on today.

Not too bad!



What do you guys think? Will you be picking this one up??

  1. I LOVE the shade, but I'm not too crazy about the glittery-ness of the amplified formulas. I don't own any MAC lipsticks, so I'm not an expert on it, but it reminds me of the NYX glam lipsticks? I have two of those and the glitter in them really turned me off, even though the shades are to die for. I hope MAC does an entire expanded collection with Lorde, her looks are always so edgy!

    1. Amplifieds aren't glittery. Some of them do have some shimmer, but most of them don't. They just have a slight shine from the creamy texture. They are almost like creamier satins.

  3. I love how this color looks on you. I do want to try it with naked lunch on my eyelids, mascara mascara and mascara, bronzer on the cheeks and Heroine on the lips. Def gorgeous!!!

  4. OMG I NEED IT!! It looks like Rebel and Heroine had a baby. I just think it would be better if it wasn't Amplified, as it isn't my favorite finish.

  14. That color looks really good on you :) It doesn't look too 'in your face'. How did you apply it? It looks more matte on your lips than in the swatch.

  15. Wow that color looks so gorgeous on you! You should wear that more often. It looks great with your skin tone and your eyes. Now I want it!

  20. I think this color looks awesome on you even though it's different from your norm! It's nice seeing a mixture of shades on you now and again. Embracing dark and scary sometimes may surprise you :D

  22. Looks beautiful and suits your complexion well! definitely not as scary as one would first assume.

  23. I definitely think I like this better than the original MAC Heroine lipstick! The cool tones in Heroine make it a lot more intimidating, but Pure Heroine looks a lot more wearable!

  24. Hi Tiffany, I think the shade looks gorgeous on you. You make it work anyhow :). I got inspired today to wear a little darker shade than usual and choose MAC Hot Tahiti that I paired with a neutral smoky eye. I like it very much and will wear a little more color on my lips more often. Thank you again for the inspiration. xoxo

    I'll definitely keep an eye out for this.

  26. This looks really good on you! It is one of those shades I would love to try, but I’m not sure I would be able to pull it off!

  27. I am astounded by the color, Tiffany. It looks fantastic on you. We are so used to seeing you with more neutral tones, so it is refreshing when you wear a brighter or darker color. I loved the Maleficent Mac lipstick (of which the name escapes me at the moment) on you so much that I went and bought it. I haven't been into super dark lipsticks, but I like this one too. :) They both suit you and you should wear color more often.

  31. I think it might be one of those colours that I hate on the stick but when applied, as you say, its not as scary as it looks. I may just be making an additional purchase.
