MAC Evening Rendezvous Lipstick (LE) vs MAC Heroine

Review and swatches MAC Evening Rendezvous Lipstick (LE) vs MAC Heroine


Before anyone judges – Could you have said "no" to a plum lipstick in this funky purple packaging? I didn't think so. In my mind, I bought this lipstick before I even swatched it (bad beauty blogger, I know) – this just screamed my name. Good thing the swatches didn't disappoint me either! MAC Evening Rendezvous lipstick is part of the Magic of the Night limited edition. It's a purple-plum and matte and simply gorgeous!


There's not much to say about the MAC matte formula anymore, is there? It's a great texture that stays on for a good couple of hours without drying out the lips – win win! What I was more interested in is how this shade compares to the other purples in my collection. The first lipstick that popped into my mind is Heroine, a straight-up purple and one of my favourites, even though I don't wear it nearly as often as I should!

As you can see in the pictures, Evening Rendezvous is a lot warmer-toned than Heroine. While Heroine definitely has a blue undertone, this one is much more on the pink side. To many, this undertone is what will make it more wearable, and it's true – wearing a purple like Heroine requests a bit more confidence.

If you're a lover of plums and purples, this is definitely a lipstick to look into. For me, it ticks all boxes: Great shade, matte and beautiful packaging! I usually like to combine purple lipsticks with a cat eye and a little bronzer and higlighter – little or no blush, I want the focus on the lips.
