For my first lipstick week entry, I’ll start off with MAC pink lipsticks. I think this will be a good closer of the unofficial MAC lipstick week I did a few weeks back. I initially thought of putting all MAC lipsticks into one big entry but lacked time in taking face shots for all. So I’ll just pide them into a few entries instead of one whole chunk.

If other ladies seem to lean towards red lipsticks, I’m on the other spectrum being an advocate of the pink batallion. This is backed up by the fact that I only have two reds in my whole stash as compared to an assortment of pinks. I find that perse shades of Barbie are easier to wear on a daily basis as compared to the multifarious hues of crimson.

SWATCHES

I can explain each shade and bore you with the chit-chatter so instead of doing that, I’ll just leave you with swatches on both my arms and lips to look at. Enjoy!

Beware: My face overload!

Sadly, I forgot to swatch Viva Glam Nicki on my lips.  Found a photo of me wearing it on my files (forgot to post the inpidual review for this shade)!! It’s actually one of my favorite bright pinks! Also, I apologize for the lighting which didn’t truly capture the corresponding shades but I hope it gave you an idea.

The last four shades to me are quite alike so I put them side by side.

Brave and Faux seem similar but Faux is more pink and Brave is much rosier.

Brave and Mehr also look similar but Mehr is darker and a touch browner.

Angel and Creme Cup are like cousins, Creme Cup being a touch lighter and creamier while Angel is darker and frostier.

TOP THREE

Please Me, MehrBrave in no particular order. Brave is my oldest and first love because it’s more of a MLBB shade which I can wear everyday. Please Me is the legit Barbie shade I use when I want to go really pink. Mehr is just love, I quite like the shade and how it looks on me. Both Please Me and Mehr are mattes, but Mehr is of better formulation and easier to apply, gliding smoothly on the lips. Please Me is much trickier as it’s a drier matte formula.

That’s all for Lipstick Week Day 1! I don’t think I can do this on a strict daily basis – just that all my next 6 entries will be on lipstick so if you’re not a lipstick lover, hopefully you’ll be interested after this series!

MAC Lipsticks are available at MACcosmetics.com and Nordstrom.com

It really looks so good on pale skintones – so you must get one, if not both!

It’s quite similar, I must agree. I do love Mehr’s formulation though! And it stays longer than Cosmo 🙂

I’m behind this lipstick tag! Not sure when I can start with mine, oh well.

Please Me looks less dry on you or you applied a lip balm underneath?

I love Please Me, Chatterbox, Mehr, Brave and Faux on you!

Gorgeous shades – I have to get Brave and Faux – great swatches! x

Brave and Faux are quite close – Faux’s just slightly pinker and lighter. Brave’s formula is better, imo 🙂

Cza Callanta June 6, 2013 at 9:22 pm

you should have put a label on each picture on what shade you’re wearing for easier reference.

Reply
Sharina June 7, 2013 at 4:29 pm

Hi Cza. Thanks for the suggestion – but I think I have it labelled, please check again 🙂

I have sunny seoul, mehr and impassioned!
I love mehr too!
I actually bought mehr because I read your review about it. And I never regretted purchasing it since then.
Please keep on reviewing more lipsticks!
Stay pretty dear 🙂

Sunny Seoul has been on my radar too but I stopped myself kasi puro pink na! I like what you have though – a light pink, a dirty pink and a bright hotpink! ♥

Aww thanks Frances 🙂 Sweet naman ng comment mo! I appreciate the love ♥ Will do!

Ooooh, I really like that last lipstick! And lol, you remind of me in that I have those same colors in multiple lipsticks. Btw, I absolutely LOVE your swatches. It also helps that we’re similar skin tones. Thanks for the swatches! And thanks again, for stopping by my blog. 🙂

No one has been able to rock Nicky like you! That looks amazing on you! I am also in the Pink Batallion (TEAM PINK 4 LIFE!) so I loved this post! Beautiful pictures and now you’ve made me extend my MAC lippie wish list even further! Have you tried Twig? It’s a pinky brown that I recently discovered and I’m in lurve.

Reply
Sharina June 10, 2013 at 5:11 pm

Pink Batallion sisters! ♥ I’ve Twig on my list actually! But I’m on a MAC lipstick no-buy so I wont be seeing it anytime soon, heh. 🙂

Hi there! I just wanted to ask your opinion on which of the following is closer to Ever Bilena Mauvey: Faux or Please Me. I’ve heard from a friend that Faux is slightly darker than Mauvey. I really love how Mauvey looks on me, but the formula is soooo bad I really think it’s high time I find a high-end dupe for it. 🙂

Try Guerlain’s KissKiss in Reve d’Or (544) I think it’ll look good on you!

Do you have a MAC Cosmo? Would love to see the swatches of Brave, Mehr, and Cosmo together 😛 I have all the lipsticks mentioned except Mehr. It’s sold out here when I went to get it 🙁 It’s not too pink like Please Me right? Cause I disposed of my Please Me and Chatterbox because they’re too pink for my liking. And Brave since it’s a little ‘frosted’ for me (or with pearl shine).

Super helpful review! I’ve had my eye on Please Me but will think about it now that I know it’s a little drying.
