Just like Candy Yum Yum, Pink Pigeon is too drying & patchy to be a $16 lipstick. I have WNW l/s that applies better. However I loved the color of Mac PP so went on the hunt for a quality dupe. These are the prices, swatches and reviews of hot pink lipsticks from MAC, bright pink lipsticks from mac, flat out fabulous from mac, baby pink lipsticks from mac, and even neutral pink matte.

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 chameleon..it 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 me..as 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.

MAC Lipstick Collection: Swatches of Red and Pink Shades

Here comes the swatch post again! MAC has so many good red and pink shades in its permanent lipsticks range that its just not possible for a store to have them all at one time. I always come across some new shades everytime I pay these stores a visit. Actually I change the store everytime! Sometimes its Select City Walk or Pacific Mall, the other times its Ambience or DLF Promenade. Today I got some swatches of the entire Viva Glam range and the new Huggable Lip Colour collection! Patience girls..those swatch posts will follow soon. But today I’ve some of the most favourite and infact almost all the good red shades from MAC. And since I had some arm space left, I collected some pink ones too to add to the post I did before: MAC Pink Lipstick Swatches.

I took a lot of of swatches..some in direct sunlight and the others in natural light. So I’m putting all of them up.

Red Lipsticks:

Chili: an orange based brown red. Follow the link for full review.

Red: such a pretty shade! I wonder why nobody talks of it. Its a carrot pink based red and one of my favourites.

Brave Red: Well you don’t need to be a lot brave to carry it. Its a nice creamy warm red.

Russian Red: A deep creamy warm red. Follow the link for full review.

Cockney: A lustre warm red with sheer finish.

Ruby Woo: Cult favourite and my love! Retro matte finish in blue based red.

Lady Danger: A bright orange toned red. Quite a hit. I swatched it with So Chaud today and they looked quite similar. Follow the link for full review.

These are infact the best red lipsticks MAC has. The are a couple of others but those were OOS. I want MAC Red next.

Pink Lipstick Swatches

Who says you can’t have fun while you work? Infact beauty blogging is such an enjoyable career. Shruti and I spent an entire day behind lipstick counters in MAC, Inglot, Lancome, Bobbi Brown, Sephora, Colorbar and royally pissed of the SAs by being Ms.Know-it-alls. I just can’t stop myself from correcting those MUAs whenever they get a fact wrong. Its criminal to say “very pretty shade. A hit in our store. Suits all skin tones” to every damn shade and shove it in your face. But it was hilarious and fun. So you girls can look forward to more such swatch posts coming soon!
