MAC Matte Lipstick ‘Pander Me’ – Review, Swatches & LOTDs
Hello lovely ladies!
Hope you are having a whale of a time in this wedding season. 😀 I have 3 back-to-back weddings to attend and very very busy; so busy in fact, I realized just today I hadn’t yet reviewed a gorgeous shade from the recently launched matte lip collection of MAC- Pander Me! I had gone to pick up a backup for my trusty Mocha but I instantly knew this was my mocha version 2.0 😀 so mocha out- pander me in!
What MAC Says-
MAC describes *Pander Me* as a “soft peachy mocha [with a Matte finish].”
Price– 1450/- INR for 3gm *right now :-/*
My Take on MAC Matte Lipstick ‘Pander Me’
In spite of being LE, ‘Pander Me’ comes in the standard classic MAC packaging in black and silver with a tight click cap which is totally ok with me 😛 *I don’t wanna cough up more money for fancy packaging thanks !*
The finish is matte *duhh it’s the matte lip collection baby* but is not at all a dry typical matte *thank goodness for that* and instead feels more like their lovely satin finishes! Goes very smoothly on my lips and applies pretty evenly, more so with a clear balm beneath. <3 It does have a habit of accentuating lip flaws if your lips are not properly prepped!
The shade *pander me* is omg so so similar to one of my most worn shades- mocha! The right mixture of peachy brown nude with maybe another squeeze of peach juice thrown in- yep that for me, is pander me! With an added coral-y warmth with mocha 🙂 lovely! Will suit a wide range of complexions. <3
Pigmentation, of course is fabulous and a couple of swipes is enough to get the required color. 🙂
The lasting power is great as well and lasts easily for 4-5 hours+ without heavy food/drinks. 🙂 It does not dry out my lips after fading away so mwaahh.

My Rating– 4.5/5!
Do I recommend?
To be very fair, I did not like any other shade from this launch! But I am head over heels in love with MAC Matte Lipstick ‘Pander Me’! It is the right blend of rosy peachy tan brown which looks so pretty on almost all complexions and will be another of my most worn shades. <3 Hope it will be made permanent soon. 😀
Coming back soon with a sexy cream color base from MAC you guys are all going to drool over! Till then, happy xmas shopping and take care. <3 tata!
