  1. Sep 24, 2013 Review by Agnirupa MAC Strength Collection Lipstick Pink Pigeon Let's face the truth about LE things, its not a good idea.Atleast, it might be a mighty marketing strategy of the bigwigs but for us- the poor,crazy,tortured make up addicts:( make up when it comes in limited editions is not at all good news.
  2. Girl About Town: is a cool toned blue based hot pink lipstick. It is possibly one of my favourite shade of bright pink in lipsticks. Cosmo: is an amplified Creme finish lipstick by MAC. MAC describes the shades as “Pink Coco”. It is a tea rose pink colour. My most favourite shade ever.

Continuing with MAC makeup swatches, I also spotted the MAC Matte Lip collection (sunmer 2015) at Nordstroms. The collection, as the name suggests, includes matte/retromatte lipsticks and lipliners. I didn't check the lipliners, but here's a look at the swatches of the lipsticks in this collection. Retromatte lipsticks are the true true mattes in that they are really dry and matte while the Matte lipsticks seem a little more forgiving, imo.

Review, Swatches and Dupe of MAC Lipstick Pink Pigeon

By Contributor: Samannita

When it comes to lipsticks I am always obsessed with pink shades, I don’t know why I always end up by buying the same shades from different brands. And here is the example of my stupid obsession..although I have Daddy’s Little Girl, Love Forever from MAC, I was still craving from Pink Pigeon. Pink pigeon is a Limited edition shade from Strength collection. And people like me are mad about LEs. And when it is a bright pink like Pink Pigeon, I guess the shade itself will say everything. Let’s start with my review and swatches.

MAC Claims: Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M.A.C famous. Totally true for this lipstick

Pink Pigeon is a bright pink that might not suit dusky Indian skin tones but will look great on fair to medium skin tones. The shade in bright sunny weather looks awesome. It looks so neon pink on me which I really love. But the shade is such a looks different in different lights. But whatever the shade looks on me in whatever light I just love to see my lips again and again in my hand mirror that I always carry in my handbag! The pigmentation of the lipstick is awesome. A single swipe is enough to get the actual shade of the lipstick.

The finish is matte and the texture is so smooth. I don’t feel any pulling or tugging on my lips while applying the lipstick. As the lipstick is matte so application of lip balm prior to applying the lipstick is suggested for dry lips. And proper exfoliation is must before applying this lipstick else one will end up with flaky lips. The fragnance of the lipstick is the usual vanilla scent that vanishes within few minutes of application thus it is good for people with sensitive nose like I don’t use a lot of my lipsticks due to their fragnance which I can’t tolerate. Anyways coming to the review again!

The staying power of the lipstick is pretty good. It stays for more than 6 hours on me and fades away leaving a nice light pink tint on my lips.

The lipstick although being a limited edition comes in the regular packaging of MAC lipsticks, but the shade always matters more than the packaging. And who wants to spend extra bucks just for the packaging? So I am really happy that the price was not increased for being limited edition.

My Recommendation: MAC Pink Pigeon Lipstick is a nice bright pink but as it is a limited shade so I guess it is now not available but you can find dupes of this shade in other brands too.
