My First Mac Lipstick

I recently won Rachel’s competition on Twitter to win a Mac lipstick and spent the next couple of hours in a total panic because I didn’t know which one to get!

I already own a red, a purple and two brown/pink lipsticks so I decided rather than getting one of the “must-have” shades, I went for one that I’d actually wear and that’s why I’m now the totally proud owner of a Mac lipstick in Please Me.

Mac Please Me Lipstick

  • First Impressions: Blimey, that’s a bit small for the price. Second impression when I’d taken off the lid; Ooooooooh! It’s such a beautiful colour and I’m absolutely loving the matte look at the moment. I think it goes on really nicely and lasted throughout the day, even with me drinking coffee, eating breakfast and lunch.
  • Value for money: £15.50. This is definitely one of the more pricey lipsticks around and I’m not sure I could tell a Mac lipstick from a high-street one if I had to guess…
  • Will I use it again?: Definitely, this is going in my handbag as my spring into summer lippie!
  • Verdict: 5/5.

  1. This colour is absolutely stunning!
    I’ve yet to give Mac lipsticks a go (though when I was actually in a Mac store I left with my hand swatched with lipstick colours within an inch of its life).
    I’m a bit uneasy about spending the amount of money it costs for them though, I’m a fan of cheaper make up as I can get more for the same amount! Think I’ll definitely give them a go at least once in my life though!

    1. I’m not sure I’d ave splashed the cash personally; I do love it but I’m sure I could have also found a similar shade elsewhere for a fraction of the price! 🙂 x

  2. Are you looking to get more everyday type shades or one for nights out and special occasions? Most of my MAC lipsticks are everyday shades because I’m more likely to wear them and it’ll mean I finish them quicker so I can Back To MAC and get a freebie! 😛 Recommendation wise: Syrup, Patisserie or Brave x

    1. What’s Back to Mac?? And lol, nights out … I don’t do going out in the evening so everyday shades are definitely my thing! Thanks for the recommendations 🙂 x

  3. I love this colour! I have one Mac lipstick and I don’t be getting another. Although they are lovely, they don’t stay on any longer than normal and I’d rather either get something cheaper or get one of the long lasting ones so I don’t have to keep reapplying.

    1. Mine might have stayed on a while because I did the “I’m eating and drinking carefully because I have lipstick on” thing. 😂 Maybe I’ll just have to win a collect of them! X

  4. Pretty shade! Some of my favourites at the moment are Cherish, Fresh Brew and Myth which are nudes, along with Velvet Teddy and Whirl which are browny nudes, all great for everyday wear 🙂
