MAC Pink Plaid Lipstick Review

MAC Please Me Lipstick

Hello Everyone! I hope you’re all well and are having a good week.  It’s been pretty busy for me work wise but I’ve been unwinding in the evenings by keeping up with my jogging.  I’ve only been doing it for a couple of weeks and I’m already seeing progress which is really motivating.  I just hope I keep it up!

Today’s review is on a beauty bloggers favourite.. a MAC lipstick.  Out of all the shades I own this is probably one of my least worn which is probably because it has my least favourite finish which is matte.  Don’t get me wrong, I love the look of matte lipsticks but I don’t wear them as often as I would like because I find them a little drying.  Lately, I’ve also had dry lips due to the cold weather so the mixture of the two together isn’t the best look! Anyway, this matte MAC lipstick called Pink Plaid, is quite pleasant to wear when teamed with lip balm underneath but of course this means it isn’t as long wearing.

Pink Plaid is a gorgeous deep pink nude which would suit a range of skin tones as it isn’t too pale or dark.  It is also one of those shades that matches a huge amount of makeup looks so it is a really great every day shade to have.  The formulation is smooth and creamy but not as much as the Amplified or Cremesheen textures available from MAC, however as mentioned before this is a matte finish so is to be expected. 

As with all MAC lipsticks the scent is vanilla which is delicious.  I also adore the statement bullet packaging which is compact and easy to store.  Whenever I wear Pink Plaid I really like it so this year I’m going to make a real effort to wear it a more.

If you fancy giving this lipstick a try you can buy the MAC Pink Plaid lipstick from MAC for £15.00.

    I love the shade – shame that it's drying but nothing a bit of lip balm can't sort! x
