A few weeks ago I finally caved in and purchased my first two MAC lipsticks. I even blogged about my little haul in a previous post. I got my MAC babies from The Vanity Zone for a very affordable price of P895! Today I'll be reviewing my new favorite pink lipstick, MAC's Please Me.
Quick info for MAC newbies (like me), MAC lipsticks come enclosed in a sleek black tubes and contain 3g of product. I'm talking about the regular shades in their permanent line since some limited edition ones come in more "fancy" packaging at times.
It took me some time before I decided on what shade to get mainly because I was super excited at the prospect of finally purchasing my first MAC lipstick with my own cash. I wanted something classic and wearable. Instinctively I knew I wanted my second tube to be Ruby Woo but since red isn't an everyday color for me, I knew that I had to get something from the pink family for my first tube.
A lot of beauty bloggers and online sellers recommended MAC's Please Me which is described as a "muted rosey tinted pink" in a matte formulation. After looking at endless swatches online I finally decided that Please Me would be THE one to purchase first.
Soft sweet vanilla scent that isn't irritating.
Great color payoff , lovely pigmentation!
Staying power - stayed put on my lips for up to 5 hours (with all the talking, drinking & eating I did!)
Brightens my face by adding just the right amount of "pink" color to my lips without it being too "in-your-face".
Matte formulation can be a bit drying and when applied on lips that haven't been prepped properly, this lipstick could be a disaster.
Overall, I really like this shade and I'm happy that I decided to purchase it. Despite the fact it can be a bit drying, I've been reaching for my tube of Please Me almost everyday. I get a lot of compliments when I wear it since it's a break from my usual bright hot pink lippies that most of my family & friends have gotten accustomed to. Please Me is definitely a great buy and is already part of my favorites list!
