Today I am reviewing a lipstick from MAC. After reviewing Mac lipstick from the Retro Matte Range All fired up, now I am reviewing their matte lipstick range in the shade Pink Pigeon.

I always wanted to buy candy yum yum for me but when I saw the swatches on internet I thought it will wash me out because it is neon pink so I picked Pink Pigeon which is little darker than candy yum yum. To know how it faired on me and see swatches read on my review.

In Detail MAC Pink Pigeon Matte Lipstick Review, Swatches and My Experience


The lipstick comes in a matte black and white printed rectangular cardboard box which bears all the necessary information. The actual lipstick has a matte black and silver body which is very strong and sturdy. I once dropped my lipstick and it did not break *touchwood* . There is a white coloured sticker glued on the bottom which carries the lipstick name and number. The cap shuts lock which closes tightly and ensures that the lipstick is travel friendly which can be carried along easily without any hassle.

Texture & Finish

The texture of Mac Matte lipstick Pink Pigeon is very smooth and buttery. It glides on my lips effortlessly without tugging or pulling my lips unlike their retro matte range. Though the lipstick is matte it does not dry out my lips, the finish it gives is not completely matte. It is sort of a semi creamy matte. I do not feel any need of applying lip balm underneath as it moisturising enough. It has a sweet vanilla scent which I adore.

Shade Pink Pigeon from MAC

Mac describes Pink Pigeon shade as a bright cleanest pink shade. But for me the shade is neon pink with very strong blue undertones. This shade will significantly wash out girls with above nc45 skin tone. I am nc42 in Mac and Pink Pigeon does suit me but only when I apply a little dark pink lip liner and than above it I apply this lipstick. It is very bright and I do not wear it at daytime because it looks very loud on lip (I hope you all understand what am I trying to explain). I also wear it as a stain I apply it very lightly and dab it with my fingers to give my lips a very beautiful pinky flush of colour. The shade will good very good on fair and pale skin tone girls.


Staying Power

Mac Matte Lipstick Pink Pigeon Stays On my lips for 4 to 5 hours. It does transfer as it is demi matte and not completely matte. But it does not come off completely. It does not settle into fine lines nor it dries off the lips further. It leaves a beautiful pinkish stain on my lips which looks amazing.

Overall Verdict

Mac Pink Pigeon is a beautiful pink lipstick which is really nice and bright. The lipstick is matte and does not dry out my lips. If you love such bright bold fun loving shades, then this is exactly for you.

Happy Christmas everyone! Today is Christmas all over the world. Here at, it’s not a White Christmas nor a Blue Christmas. Instead, it’s a Pink Christmas! Just because I’ve been into reds lately doesn’t mean that I’ll wear red lips both last night and today. Since I’ve already worn red yesterday, today I wanted to wear a pink lipstick. A bright pink! So I thought of MAC Pink Pigeon Lipstick which I’ve only bought recently and had already worn quite a few times.

MAC Pink Pigeon Lipstick had first been released as a Limited Edition. I had not been able to buy it, as well as Party Parrot, when it was released a few years ago. So I was so happy when it was repromoted as part of the Permanent line. I just wish that Party Parrot will also be repromoted, too.

What MAC says about their lipsticks:

Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M•A•C famous.


MAC Pink Pigeon Lipstick is classified as a bright cleanest pink with a matte finish. In the bullet, it looks like a medium blue-based pink. When swatched on my arm, it is evident how cool-toned this lippie really is. I believe that this color would work on all skin tones and undertones. It will just depend on whether you like blue-based pink lipsticks.

MAC Pink Pigeon Lipstick is a bit pigmented. It is already semi-opaque with just 1 swipe. With 2 or more layers, more opaque coverage can be achieved.

Its texture is a bit creamy, making it really easy to apply. It glides easily and does not drag nor tug on the lips at all. It applies evenly across the lips and does not settle into lip lines. I didn’t experience any feathering, but if you’re prone to feathering, then you might want to line your lips first.

Pink Pigeon has a satin-matte finish, but after about an hour or two, the satin sheen is gone and it becomes a little bit more matte. You can also simply blot it with a clean tissue paper to get a more matte finish. I personally like to blot it because it looks better on me when it’s more matte and stain-like. I also like using it for gradation/gradient lips.

Application Tips:

☆ Exfoliate the lips well.
☆ Moisturize lips with a good lip balm. After 10 to 20 minutes, blot with a clean tissue paper to remove excess shine.
☆ Apply lip primer like MAC Prep+Prime Lip and wait for it to become tacky, about a minute.
☆ Then apply 1 layer of MAC Pink Pigeon Lipstick then blot with a tissue.
☆ Apply a second layer of the lipstick and blot again.
☆ Finally, apply a third layer either on the whole lips or only on the center parts of the lips so it will appear fuller. Blot ever so lightly, just so it wouldn’t stain your teeth.

The color on my lips is a cool-toned bright medium pink. I love that it doesn’t suck the moisture from my lips although it’s not as long-lasting as my other MAC matte lipsticks. It lasts around 6 to 7 hours on my lips and after eating and drinking, reapplication is required.

Mac Matte Lipstick Pink Pigeon White

I bought MAC Pink Pigeon Lipstick for PhP1,000 from MAC in Mall of Asia. It is now part of the Permanent line of MAC’s lipsticks so I can use it up without fear of not being able to replace it because I can always buy more. Alternatively, it can also be bought here and here .

Mac Matte Lipstick Ingredients

MAC Pink Pigeon Lipstick has the same signature vanilla scent of MAC lipsticks. I have grown to love this scent and taste that I sometimes miss them when I’m using a different brand of lipstick.

This is a very pretty pink with just enough brightness that is not overpowering. It is obvious on my lips how cool-toned it is against the warmth of my skintone, that they seem to clash, but I still love it! Better than Candy Yum Yum, if you ask me. 😉
