MAC Please Me Lipstick – Review & Swatches
Happy Thursday! As promised I’m here with my first MAC lipstick and all
my thoughts and opinions I have on it. If you missed my MAC haul I
posted a few days ago than that is here for you to browse as well.
Please Me is my first actually MAC Lipstick and if you’ve read my MAC
haul than you would know how giddy I was when I purchased it. Ever since
I started reading beauty blogs I dreamed of owning one and I didn’t
know when it will be or how I would get it but it was a small dream to
one day blog about my own MAC lipstick and share my thoughts on it. Now
today I finally get a privilege of doing so and I’m so excited I can’t
keep up with my brain while typing this. So without further a do I
present you my first MAC lipstick!
I got the shade Please Me which was recommend to me by my makeup teacher when we went shopping with him for class. He said it would work well on me and that it’s a good first lipstick to start with for my skin tone. So off I went to purchase it and went home with it. I didn’t swatch it or test it on me in store but next time I purchase one without my teacher recommending things I’m sure I’ll have an arms full of color. I just love the packaging and the matte black bullet is so iconic and I’m so scared to mess it up. I actually still keep mine in its box and when ever I want to use it I have to force it out. Maybe it’s just new but I want to keep it as clean as pretty as it’s brand new state.
The color is a light to medium pink. It looks so different for me in the tube than swatched and I was a little worried if I would like this color but luckily it was the exact pink I love buying and another one to add to my collection. It is a matte formula which I wanted one like that to try out. I plan on testing all the MAC formulas and I’m hoping to get a Satin or Creamsheen next. Is it me or did yours have like water spots on the end? Maybe that’s how it comes but I though it was funny and maybe it was to add moisture to the lipstick so it’s not hard to apply.
The swatches on my hand are a lot darker than I thought it would and I didn’t know what the exact color it would me on my lips. When I did try it on my lips it became a medium tone pink that was not bold but a perfect color for me. I tried it both in doors and outdoors and the pink is definitely my favorite to wear. It’s there but it isn’t there. The lip swatch doesn’t have any lip balm or a lip pencil so no priming involved. Since it is matte is sticks to dry patches but with a lip balm it solves that and doesn’t cling anymore.
That’s been my first MAC lipstick and my review/first impression on it. I really like it and I’m so excited to start up my collection. I’m having a lot of MAC firsts and it was so fun to experience it myself after reading about them for a few years now. I’d love to know if you have this one or want to try it. I’d also love to know what lip pencil will be good to pair with this as I want to jump on that bandwagon and try it too. Hope you enjoyed this as much as I had gushing about this.

I remember when I bought my first MAC lipstick (I think it was Shy Girl), I was super excited as well! I could relate to this post as it brought back memories of how precious makeup can be to the uninitiated. Looks like you picked out a great pick for yourself 🙂 I thoroughly recommend the Lustre finish – it's my favourite from MAC!
Awe this comment was so sweet and I'm glad you can relate to getting your first MAC lipstick. I must try that finish now and see how I like. Thanks for the lovely comment!xo Jackie
