Hey guys! Today I'm going to be reviewing my very first MAC lipstick in the shade Please Me. I won this over at Kate Spitz's blog when she was doing a giveaway. If you haven't checked out Kate's blog, I highly recommend you do so! She's gorgeous, posts frequently and is just amazing! Anyways, this is the first MAC lipstick I've ever had so it was pretty exciting when I received this in the mail!
Now I had to look up info on this product because I'm not typically a MAC girl. Online, this shade is described as a muted rosy tinted pink. I don't particularly see the rosy side to this. On me, it looks sort of like a Barbie pink, but not quite as bright.
When I swatched it, I see a bit of a mauve color coming through, but maybe that's the muted rose they're talking about? I don't know, I'm bad at describing colors.
Here, I definitely see the
toned down Barbie pink I was talking about. It's actually a color I
really like for my fair skin. This lipstick is one of their matte
colors, and I do feel like it's a bit drying by itself. Most times I've
worn this, I've had to put on lip balm first, or wear lipgloss on top.
This picture was taken with lip balm on top of the lipstick. I personally like how it looks better here than by itself above. I'm still on the fence about whether or not MAC products are worth the hype because you can usually find dupes in the drugstores. MAC lipsticks retail for $16 on the MAC website, although I could've sworn I saw they were $14.50 somewhere. One thing I'm really fond of is the smell. It's got a light vanilla scent but no taste whatsoever. I could probably sit here and smell this thing all day, as weird as that sounds!
Overall, this is a nice lipstick, but I do have to wear lip balm to keep it from feeling too dry on my lips. Would I go out and purchase one myself? Meh, maybe, maybe not. I haven't fallen into that MAC trap where all I use is MAC products. I spread my love around :)
Thanks again to Kate for having a MAC lipstick as the prize for winning her giveaway! It was fun trying out something new that I normally might not buy for myself :)
What do you think about MAC lipsticks? Or their products in general?
