MAC Matte Lipstick “Pink Plaid” Review, Swatches & LOTDs
Helloo my pretties 🙂
This lipstick was part of my nude-pink lips phase and I have left it too long to review. 😀 I had been loving and hoarding similar colors a few months back, particularly for the fear that mac lippies will soon be 2k 🙁 and nooooo! It already is :-/ so before further ado, lets wipe our tears and move on to our focus of today- the matte lipstick in “pink plaid.”
What MAC says-
Mac describes “pink plaid” as a Dirty blue-pink in a matte finish.
Price– 1190/-INR for 3gm when I bought *now its 2k*
My Take on MAC Matte Lipstick “Pink Plaid”
The lipstick is from the permanent line and so comes in the all too familiar matte back and silver tube packaging with a tight click-cap, sleek and travel friendly! 🙂
The texture is matte, but not retro matte and thus is certainly not hard or crayon-y! Rather a very soft, feather-like matte which applies very easily and mostly evenly on lips, even without a lip balm. 🙂 It does have a slight tendency to accentuate the fine lines/imperfections so its better to wear a gloss on top or a balm beneath.
The shade “pink plaid” is a quite difficult to carry off muted bluish-pink which looks fabulous warmed up with an apt liner under it. 😀 Its very very like *please me* which is one of my favorites but is less easier to carry off. With a clear gloss though, you are set! Pigmentation is great and a single swipe ensures that you get the color of the bullet. The staying power is awesome as well and easily stays on my lips 5 hours+ despite being such a muted shade.

My Rating– 4/5!
Do I recommend?
If you have a pink toned cool complexion like me and have difficulty carrying off coral or warmer pinks then definitely opt for a warm neutral liner with a cooler lipstick applied above it. 🙂 Just try and see it transform you. MAC Matte Lipstick “Pink Plaid” is so similar to “Please Me” that you don’t need one if you have the other!
That’s all today pretties. 🙂 I will be back pretty soon with loads of new stuff. *_* toodles!
