MAC Lipstick in Pink Pigeon Review. Hello Everyone, Hope all of you had a great weekend. You all know how much I love my “brights,” so today, I am reviewing MAC Lipstick in Pink Pigeon, which has been released with the MAC Strength Collection for Spring 2013, currently in stores. I get tons of compliments whenever I wear this lipstick so I had to include it on this list. It can work on all tones of desi skin but I prefer it on lighter skin types more. Pink Pigeon (matte) Pink Pigeon is a gorgeousssss pink for desi skintone. Its a cool tone hot pink. A deep magenta, like the colour of blueberry jam, this one is a berry pink on most Indian skin tones. Finish and texture: Due to the sheen of this lipstick, the colour payoff is really sheer.

MAC Pink Pigeon is fun and bright pink lip color that in some lots will appear to be on the neon side of the pink spectrum. This pink is best suited for the cool-toned girls because this color has blue undertones and the finish is a matte but to me, it feels more like a cream finish but after hours of wear, it will settle into your lips as a.

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

Packaging

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.

If your skin is on the lighter side, pick a shade between bubblegum and candy, while medium tones should look for variations with orange and coral pigments that'll instantly brighten up their face. Darker complexions, on the other hand, should pick deeper pinks with hints of reds.
