Top 5 pink MAC lipsticks

Pink lipstick. Love it or loathe it?  
I love it and so I have a lot of pink lip products. Sorting through my makeup this last weekend led me to picking out my top 5 MAC pinks and I thought I’d share them with you.

My Top 5 MAC pink lipsticks, swatched


1. Chatterbox (amplified creme)
A bright red pink. Works well day and night, has amazing staying power and not at all drying on the lips.

2. Please Me (matte)
Muted rosey-toned pink. This is my staple daytime pink as its long-lasting, grown-up matte formula is fuss free and looks good with neutral makeup.

3. Pink Pearl Pop (cremesheen)
Frosted mid-toned pink. Some people will baulk at the frosted tone, but I think it’s perfect for an easy daytime look. This shade just really brightens my face. It doesn’t last as long on the lips as the other formulas, but it still wears well.

4. Pink Nouveau (satin)
Simply matte, bright pink. I’ve been buying this for the best part of a decade. I love it at night when I want a statement lip, and as it’s matte it wears incredibly well. It mixes brilliantly with a clear lipgloss to give a shiny pout when needed, or patted on with a finger, it makes a lovely stain for ‘subtle bright’ lips.

5. Candy Yum Yum (matte)
Wow. Neon pink. Not for wallflowers. This is one of my favourite summer lipsticks, paired with barely there eye makeup, or a graphic liner. It’s fun, kitsch, loud…and it ain’t coming off easily!

Focused for texture on Chatterbox and Please Me

    I love the look of 'chatterbox'! Think that's gonna have to be put on Mac list!

    Lou, it's probably one of my favourite lipsticks of all time. Definitely go for it! x

    I love pick lipsticks, I prefer the darker shades to the paler pinks though.

    I used to be 'dark shades only' but migrated my love to basically any colour now. Lipstick addict? x
