Lorde Lipstick Letdown

Ugh. I don’t even know what to do with this. It’s like MAC forgot they used to release decent “Punk Couture” lines, “Prince Noir” lipstick and be the brand to beat.


(“Pure Heroine” by itself. Look at my sad little face. You had one job…)

Lorde is known for her dark looks, her wild hair, and did you forget the purple lipstick? She’s been pratically hailed has the nu goth queen. (I mean obviously not quite but so damn near close…) I bought it. I tried it. I kind of want to return it. It’s mostly repackaged Heroine. I was expecting something a bit more purple than Revlon’s “VA VA Violet” and less “so early fall in Napa it’s spring/off plum”.


(At least now we can pretend it’s a dark berry color as opposed to the ugh it was before…)

I blended it with NYX’s  “Chambord” here just to darken the edges. I don’t hate it completely but it definitely missed the mark. Kind of like how MAC missed the mark with the Maleficent palette, but that’s a rant for another time.

Did you love it or hate it? For more questionable reviews and adventures through Goth Land, follow me on Tumblr, YouTube, Instagram, and Facebook.

Until next time,
