A few weeks ago we finally got the first MAC Cosmetics store here in Croatia. The store is beautiful, big and spacious and said to be the biggest one in South-East Europe. Store opened in the heart of Zagreb, Croatia’s capital. Beauty addicts and lovers from all across Croatia keep visiting and enjoying the new store, so it’s pretty crowded all the time. All the employees are very helpful and kind so customers can really enjoy their time there.
As I could only browse zillions of swatches online until now, and merely imagine how a particular shade of lipstick, foundation or blush would look on me, this made me very excited and happy. It still seems a bit unreal. 😀
I began composing my MAC wishlist long ago and, as time went by, I just kept adding new stuff to it. You can imagine how hard it was to decide what to get first. I opted for a lipstick and, as I wanted something pretty unique, I chose Heroine. By the way, every makeup lover’s first time in MAC is impossible to forget, do you agree?
As it says on MAC Cosmetics’ official website, Heroine is a matte, bright purple lipstick. The colour payoff is amazing, staying power as well. Although matte, it’s not uncomfortable on lips. Scent is typical for MAC lipsticks, subtle vanilla-esque, nothing too much. Heroine is really loud, vibrant, unusual and attention seeking shade, just as I like it
Seems a bit tricky to incorporate into a simple makeup look, eh?
Not really, I had great fun with it.
Products used on eyes and eyebrows: Catrice Velvet matt eyeshadow- Vanilaty fair (lid, inner corner and brow bone highlight), Makeup Revolution Romantic Smoked palette (a wash of lilac shade in the upper crease/as transition colour and brown shade in outer crease) and Makeup Revolution Colour Chaos palette (shades Needed to in crease and My Demons on the lower lash line). For eyebrows, I used Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip brow pomade in Soft Brown.
Products used on lips: Nyx Slim lip liner in Purple Rain, MAC lipstick in Heroine. In the end I played a little and added Kryolan Purple/Lila lipstick over the top.
Products used on face: Revlon Colorstay Foundation in Buff, Catrice Camouflage cream in Ivory and Light Beige, Rimmel Stay Matte pressed powder, Nars blush in Orgasm, Anastasia Beverly Hills contouring powder in Fawn.
