Happy Wednesday! I hope you’re wearing pink! If not, that’s okay too because I have plenty of pink to share with you today. Last week was all about cheeks but this week is all lips! This week’s Pink Wednesday features one of my favorite Barbie pink lipsticks, MAC Pink Pigeon.
Pink Pigeon is an incredibly bright, cool fuchsia pink with a matte finish. I could totally see this being Barbie’s favorite lipstick! Sure the color looks dupable but it’s neon-like intensity really sets Pink Pigeon apart from the rest. Think of it as a darker Candy Yum Yum. It flatters just about any skin tone but it really pops against my brown skin. I feel like a Barbie the second I put it on!
While I adore the color, the formula could use a little work. My tube is from the Strength collection so it has the old matte formula that feels more dry and clingy than the new mattes (like Fashion Revival). Pink Pigeon lasts for a solid 6 hours before fading but it could manage to wear a little better. The color settles into my lip lines considerably and it feels a little drying after a few hours so I have to wear a balm and lip liner underneath. I really hope that Pink Pigeon now features the new formula since it’s been made permanent at MAC. Then it would be perfect! If you like attention grabbing Barbie pink lipsticks then you should try on Pink Pigeon the next time you hit MAC. Who couldn’t use a little Pink Pigeon on Pink Wednesday?
