Today I am reviewing the newest addition in my Makeup Collection, the one I have been eyeing for sooooo long. Well, technically I had been looking for MAC Heroine Lipstick since an year and it was always OUT OF STOCK but then one fine day the SA said they don’t have the lipstick but Lip pencil is available. I wasted no time and picked up this beautiful Color and walked out of the store with a BIG SMILE on my face.

The pictures below will give you clear idea of the packaging. The color coded end is really helpful in recognizing the Liner in my Makeup stash.

My Experience:
The color of MAC Heroine Lip pencil is BRIGHT PURPLE, you won’t come across this color easily in other Makeup brands and that makes it so appealing to me. It is one of that unique shade which gets you many compliments whenever you wear it.

MAC Heroine Lip Pencil’s texture is neither creamy nor dry but there is slight tugging and pulling during application, the beauties with severe dry lips please stay away from this. I have to properly moisturise and prep my lips before the application. The Lips pencil settles very well on the lips and transfers very less.

After wearing this for few hours I have to put lip gloss or balm on the top to minimize the puckering it causes.It is not hydrating so addition of lip balm on top will take care of that. I will sum up the Pros and Cons below.


1. Unique shade.
2. Matte Finish.
3. Insanely Pigmented.
4. No Bleeding
5. Minimal Transfer
6. Precise Application


1. The formula feels dry after few hours of wear time.
2. Not an ideal formula for dry lips.
3. Sharpening leads to product wastage.

Rating: 4.5/5
