My Take on MAC Matte Lipstick in shade # Pink Pigeon:
Mac says -Pink Pigeon is a “bright cleanest pink” with matte finish. This is the creamiest matte lipstick from Mac I have ever used so far. If you used MAC ruby woo, you must be knowing how matte and dry it is. But Pink Pigeon is on creamier side. Glides on lips smoothly without tugging. Pink Pigeon is limited edition lipstick belongs to MAC Strength Collection, therefore availability is main concern. The colour is brightest “Fuchsia Pink” with cool undertone. The colour is opaque and gives full coverage to pigmented lips, i.e very pigmented. Pink pigeon glides on lips like a dream (this is very interesting that been matte it is very soft and creamy) which does not feel dry at all. However after few hours it tends to get bit dry on lips so I suggest a good lip balm underneath is very important. This is one of the perfect bright fun-pink shade I have in my vanity.
It stays on lips for almost around 6-7 hours after that it fades evenly leaving a pink stain. It does survive heavy meal but can get transfer within first few hours of application (I think this is due to the creaminess of the lipstick but after once set it do not bleed or transfer). I generally like to line my lips with a lip liner before applying such a bold shades. Ohhh yeah! And the vanilla fragrance, the signature of all MAC lipstick. Very pleasing to nose 😛 Totally love it!
Summing up Pros:
- The shade is rocking! I love bold colours so this is completely my kind of shade.
- Matte yet creamy and moisturizing texture.
- Do not accentuate fine lines.
- Do not dry out lips.
- MAC ‘s signature vanilla fragrance.
- Very opaque finish. Highly pigmented!
- Do bleeding or smudging.
- The staying power is appreciated- almost 6-7 hours without any meal.
- Glides on lips very smoothly. No fuss no mess. No tugging.
- Limited edition products always add up value in your kitty 😀 😉
Summing up Cons:
- Nothing exactly. I completely love the shade and the texture. Almost everything! 😉
Yes! This shade is highly recommendable. If you love like bright bold fun loving shade then this is exactly for you. I am going to use this shade in this winter but again lip balm is must.
