MAC Pink Pigeon lipstick review

Pink Pigeon is a recent reissue as part of MAC's Strength collection.


A blue based hot pink, it's a matte formula that goes on surprisingly creamy. I really love bright lip colours but find that with my pale skin and red hair I have to be quite careful about choosing a shade. This one I love!


I originally went to get Daddy's Little Girl from the new Archie's Girls collection, but after swatching, decided this looked a little better on (no funky packaging though, boo!)

It's really opaque and on me, lasts a good 5 hours without needing a top up. The matte formula does get a little drying, so I always apply a lip balm underneath about 10 minutes before the lipstick.


Pink Pigeon retails at £14 and can be found online and at MAC counters. I believe it's limited edition though so go fast if you want one!

  12. I really like this shade of pink. It really suits you. I have to be careful what colours I wear too as I'm forever changing my hair colour and they don't end up suiting me x
