Review: MAC Pigment Set and Heroine Lipstick

Back in November I got the MAC Objects of Affection Pigment Set in their Holiday Collection I was so stoked to get this set because I've heard amazing reviews about their pigments this set is perfect because it comes with 5 pigments all in mini size and who can finish a full size of pigments anyway? There were three sets and I chose the Pink and Rose because it was the most unique out of the three and I didn't have these colors in any of my palettes.

It is stored in this cute box made of plastic and on the lid is an image of a woman form the Victorian Era who knows maybe they had pigments back then. HAHA. But the glittery lid screams Holiday and Christmas. I really want to expand my MAC Collection for my kit and their products are of really great quality I hope 2015 will be my year of MAC I just gotta find a job first :-D

Here are the swatches, I put primer on the one on the right.

I love the quality of their pigments they are very smooth and pigmented but they can get messy because it doesn't have a sifter you just need to be careful not to spill it all over the place I've used this on clients and it looks so luxurious also very easy to blend.

MAC lipstick in HEROINE


I ove MAC lipsticks they apply very smooth and their quite moisturizing plus they smell like vanilla cupcakes! I have wanted this color way back when MAC wasn't available here in Cebu I would browse around their colors and this one always stood out its a violet/ purple color perfect for days when you want your lips to be the statement its a Matte finish so it stay on longer but doesn't dry out your lips.
Rate 5/5

At first I thought MAC is too pricey and over rated but on my 18th birthday I got my very first MAC product it was a mineral blush called "Miss Behave" from the Quite Cute Collection and I fell in love  and I still use it today its 3 years old but in very good condition because I disinfect and sanitize my makeup every month and that really helps expand its shelf life.

Thank you for reading!
Take care!

With much love,

  1. Hi darling, happy new year! I love to try Mac products but it's pricey nga, but I still want to try them. I have a question, how you sanitized and disinfect your make-up products? or maybe may I request for tips about it, blog post perhaps? Thank you!

    love,

  2. I really wanted this set out of all of their holiday releases, but I was really only interested in Rose. Good thing rose is sold alone even as a travel size that I immediately bought instead :D

  5. The intensity of the pigments are really good. I like all shades but aren't pigments hard to apply because of fall outs? What are your thoughts? Do you have any tricks you can share on how to apply pigments? I would be interested to know. :)

    1. yes I do the eye shadow first then foundation last. I can also seep off the excess with a little translucent powder.

  12. What a lovely lipstick shade! It's not one to sport everyday, but I see this turning heads (in a good way) when you wear it on special events. :D The pigments are super awesome as well!

  15. Great review dear! If only I could afford so many MAC products, but if I were to splurge, I'd definitely go for a lipstick first because I've heard good things about MAC heroine from my makeup crazed friends :) That shade looks lovely on you!
