As it happened, I totally did.

|MAC Heirloom Mix Lipstick - packaging|
I think the big selling point with these lipsticks is the packaging itself. It's got a kind of shimmery silver glitter over the top of the regular MAC packaging -- I don't think it's quite as smooth as a regular MAC lipstick, but there's no real gritty texture either. I think that this glittery perfection was manufactured as an additional coating over the regular tube, as I've found the lipsticks just a touch difficult to take out of the box. Gentle shaking didn't do much good, and I wasn't able to grip enough of it to pull it out, so I ended up having to open the bottom of the box and push it forward. Through repeated use, it gets easier -- now a gentle shake usually allows enough of the tube to fall out so that you can grab it.

If you missed out on these lipsticks, don't fear! They are most definitely dupable, and you may already have something similar if you picked anything up from the Novel Romance line.
No Faux Pas -- this is bright, cool-toned hot pink with a matte finish. I feel like it looks pinker in person than in the photo. It feels relatively creamy when you apply it, but it dries down to a matte after a little while. I like the staying power on this, I feel that it stays relatively well with minor eating and drinking. I don't think it's totally necessary to exfoliate your lips before hand, unless your lips are as dry as the Gobi Desert -- in which case, get scrubbing! No Faux Pas is very, very similar to Good Kisser from the Novel Romance collection, as well as Girl About Town, which is part of the permanent line. You can check out Temptalia's dupe list for more suggestions.
