The Perfect Lipstick for Dark skin

Monday, 4 September 2017

I know many woman would be afraid of wearing purple on their lips but in my humble opinion the Mac Heroine lipstick is just simply the perfect shade of lipstick for woman of colour.

I saw a picture of Mindy Kaling (The Mindy Project) wearing this shade and it popped so much on her skintone that I had to have it. It has the same Wow factor that red lips has on light skinned woman.

I tried the purple Revlon Colorburst in 215 Shameless, it was nice but but too dark to give that Wow factor. I stepped into Mac and they immediately brought me Heroine. I was so happy I bought 2 of them just in case they discontinue the shade.

I wear Heroine all the time and the purple shade is so good it even works for the office. My workmates admire the shade, and I’ve gotten several comments on how well it works on my skin tone.
