I thought, for all my time spent idling at MAC counters and their website, I have a fairly good grasp of their permanent lipstick line. So I was quite surprised that MAC has a pink, matte lipstick! And because I am a matte lipstick freak, I knew I had to have one, but the thing is (and partially the reason why I did not know about it is), MAC Philippines does not carry this shade. Why I am drawn to things which are not easily available, I do not know. Maybe, I’m unlucky; surely, I do not possess the most popular of tastes.
So, sight unseen, I went ahead and ordered this via online resellers (who carry more interesting shades and are cheaper, considering they deliver it to you for free). Sorry, I’m semi-ranting.
MAC Matte Lipstick in Please Me, Php995 at Carefree Shopping
I knew I would not regret getting this because no matter what, I know I love MAC’s mattes (see my other mattes here and here). So getting Please Me actually rounds it up, I have a nude, red and now, pink. And yes, it did not disappoint!
Please Me to me looks like a milky pink with a very faint lilac/mauve undertone. The texture is typical of their matte lipsticks, creamy and pigmented upon application but sets to a powdery dry texture—love. Again, be sure to pat it in place upon application to avoid mumu lips.
I have been wearing this nonstop since I got it. If you’ve been following me on Instagram (follow, (at)mrspastrana), you might have noticed.
