Nice list, martiangurll. greengrin.gif


We will try and be strong together friends.gif  (I am getting Ablaze though, unless I have a dupe)

I heard people say OCC Lip Tar in Hoochie is a dupe for Heroine. Does anyone have both? What is your expert take on this?

Check out Starling Bright's comparison.

 

 

The 3rd and 4th from the left (2 shades in the middle) are Heroine and Hoochie.

I just realized that MAC has released 2 different lipsticks already with the name Heroine. The first Heroine came out with the Wonder Woman collection!

Thanx! So do you apply it with a q-tip and then blend it with a brush? Or is there a brush you use that gives you decent color payoff?

This was swatched with a qtip...



Mattes are tricky to use as the main colour. They work best when blended on top of another colour, such as in the crease or outer corner.

Oh no! I never use a qtip to apply anything! nonono.gif

I just use my 239 or 217 and it applies like a dream! I have no problems applying any matte shadow. Never have. th_dunno.gif

Ok thanx. I'll give violet trance another try. I really would like to make it work.

Anyone have seasoned plum? Thoughts? Better than heroine and/or Strong Woman?

I guess it depends on the look you're going for. I have both Seasoned Plum and Strong Woman and SP is brighter and has blue undertones  versus SW which has red undertones  but is a bit more toned down and more wearable for everyday. Or if you want a nice purple you can mix both. HTH

post #831 of 5953

I'm just going by my experience with both. I can wear them both everyday if I wanted to but I prefer SW for everyday if I don't want to call too much attention to myself girlhaha.gifbut when I want an extra boost I use SP. 

post #832 of 5953

My list so far is Heroine L/S, L/G and L/L (but that might change when I see it in person I can probably duplicate with other purple lipsticks.)

Embrace Me L/S and L/G (same thing as above I have too many bright pinks.)

The rest is I can live without.

post #836 of 5953

My preliminary list that I plan to generally stick with

 

Heroine lipstick + BU

Ablaze lipstick

 

Heroine lipliner + BU - maybe this would make Viva Glam Nicki 2 more wearable!

_______________________________________________

Heroine lipglass (maybe, but not likely bec I have Mall Madness)

NO Embrace Me's - (Pink Pigeon, CYY, OCC Nylon, OF, DLG ... I have enough pinks!)

Heroine lip liner <3 I adore the lipstick can't wait for the liner definitely will purchase a few of those! Can also see me buying Ablaze lipstick and the liner plus embrace me lipstick.
post #838 of 5953

OT: Are Pearlglide Liners lip safe???

 

I imagine Designer Purple (for Heroine,SI,CYY e.g.) and Black Swan (for FF,GF,YR e.g.) to be a lovely lip liners eyelove.gif

post #839 of 5953

Heroine LS, LL, NL and LG definitely. Squeeeeee!

Maybe Ablaze LS and a second Heroine LS. Embrace me looks neat, but too similar to other things. I don't really believe in backups, the product will go bad before you use it; but this lippie has been so, so, so ridic to get. I can see backups if it's the only color you wear and you wear it everyday, but i almost never wear the same color more than three days in a row. I WILL do the middle-of-the-night online buying, bc if i miss out on this again, imma cut a b**ch lol.

I heard it's safe I've seen plenty of people that have used Designer Purple on their lips before. I feel bad for taking this off instagram to show as it's not my picture lol.
