By now I’m sure you’re familiar with the ever-popular lip color ‘Heroine’ by MAC. If not, you should be! Especially with fall and winter coming up, this color is a serious go-to. A sort of berry purple, I find it looks good on SO many people (especially us tricky redheads!)
Well what if I told you I found a super similar color at my local drugstore for half the price?!
Yep, I did.
It is the Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in ‘Shameless’ (215). In these pictures I layered it on pretty heavy, but if you just do a light layer you can hardly tell the difference between the two colors! I actually prefer the texture of the Revlon balm too because it is so light and easy to put on with the pointed tip. I also really like to layer the two colors because I find I like the texture a lot, I do ‘Heroine’ first and then top it off with ‘Shameless’, I think it even lasts longer than just one or the other alone!
Nobody will ever know the difference.
You can find both colors here:
Target: Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in ‘Shameless’ ($6.99)
Walgreens: Revlon Colorburst Matte Balm in ‘Shameless’ ($8.49)
Nordstrom: MAC ‘Heroine’ Lipstick ($16.00)
