MAC Breathing Fire Matte Lipstick Review, Swatches: Hello Guys. After reviewing so many Mac lipsticks here on MBF, I am back with another lipstick review of Mac from their Matte lipstick collection. I really like their Matte lipsticks rather than satin or Amplified finishes as compared to them matte ones are more pigmented and long lasting as well.

I own a lot of Mac lipsticks as they have array of shades to choose from and also for every skin tone. The shade I am reviewing today comes in a pink category which they named as Mac Matte Lipstick in the shade Breathing Fire.

The shade is actually not that old as I have not heard about this shade before so this was the major reason I bought this shade also the name attracted me. To know more about this shade called Breathing Fire keep on reading my views below.

In Detail MAC Breathing Fire Matte Lipstick Review, Swatches and My Experience

The Mac matte lipstick breathing fire as usual comes in its standard black colored rectangle shaped cardboard box with few information related to the lipsticks printed on it. The actual lipstick has a shinny black colored bullet which has a silver twister and has a round top cap which closes with a shut.

The shade name and number is printed on the bottom of the lipsticks which makes it easy to locate the shade in the box. The packaging of the lipstick in its self looks and feels very luxurious, good quality as well as sturdy. Hence can be carried along without any fear.

It has a very mild vanilla fragrance which isn’t over powering. Though the smell vanishes very quickly.

Mac describes the shade Breathing Fire a bright warm fuschia which is very true. If you are between Nc42 to Nc 45 and the shade Candy Yum Yum and Pink Pigeon washes you out like me than you should definitely give this shade a shot.

I really loved this shade and also enjoy wearing it especially at night time and in day. I just dab it a little on my lips to get that perfect barbie pink kind of a stain. This shade has more sort of a warm pink undertone than that of Pink pigeon. But if you are more darker than Mc45 than it may wash you out.

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 applying the lipstick is suggested for extremely dry lips. And proper exfoliation is must before applying this lipstick else one will end up with flaky lips.

I don’t have flaky lips so I don’t feel a need to apply lip balm. I directly apply it and than dab it with my fingers a bit to tone down the brightness.

The shade is really beautiful & pigmented. It is opaque in two swipes and there is no need to apply it again and again. Also the color is perfect to wear as a stain for a day time no makeup look.

Mac pink pigeon review car and driver

It stays on my lips for about 4 hours with light meals. I did not seen any feathering or smudging whatsoever. In fact it fades evenly and on fading it leaves a beautiful light pink tinge on lips which looks so good and natural.

Being a matte lipstick it doesn’t settles into my fine lines as well. Removing it is also easy it just comes off with a wet wipes and does not consume a lot of time.

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.

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 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. 😉
