Dupe Series is on the go, I hope you people find it useful and enjoying it as well. Earlier I have done post on drugstore dupes MAC Something New and MAC RiRi Bad girl. We all love MAC lipsticks so much in every manner but sadness is they are crazily increasing price of oh! so adorable lipsticks. Whats better than this when you are able to find dupe shade of a perticular MAC lipsticks in your go to drugstore brands.
Shade of the day is all about ‘Heroine’ by MAC. Heroine is Boldest of bold shade which is not for faint hearted people for sure. I myself fan of purple shade lipsticks. It adds drama to your look and can be wear with minimal makeup look. I love experimenting with my looks hence added it to my vanity. However ‘Heroine’ is medium purple with warm undertones. People can easily wear red and pink of their choices but this shade is little difficult to pull off.
The texture of this lipstick is great, super matte finish which I adore to the core. It is insanely pigmented and you will need just one swipe to cover pigmentation. I don’t have dry lips but after couple of hours of application it might be drying for those who have dry lips.Dry lips beauty must prepare and moisturize there lips. It accentuates fine lines over time of application.
Anyways its quite an expensive lipstick for some but its MAC!! and we love it no matter what:D Still, I am pretty curious about dupes of high end lipsticks and the reason is that I always want to present best at Wise She.
This time I have find a really close dupe of ‘Heroine’ in our very own and most loved Indian brand LAKME.
I have good experience with their Lakme satin enrich Lipsticks. The dupe shade is Lakme Enrich Satin p170.
This shade is Â also medium purple like MAC Heroine but it has some chunky glitters into it.For me it was the biggest turn off when I swatched it on my hand. But the actual finish comes after some time of application. It is more creamy than the MAC one. So in spite of the glitter you’ll experience semi matte finish with this one as well.The performance of this lipsticks is not as great as MAC Heroine but It is easy on your pocket when you want similar shade but don’t want to splurge.
However, for Lip shades MAC will be my favourite among all 🙂 and you can for lakme one because of its ‘Happy’ price tag.
