Can anyone "Pretty Please" tell me how to wear this beautiful lipstick without it turning into a flakey, dry mess on my lips after only an hour or so? I don't think my lips are dry.. they are normal, but when I put on this lipstick, after an hour or so, it just flakes and looks lke I have dry skin all over my lips in the shade of frosty light pink!
I asked a MAC mua about this and he told me that since the finish of this lipstick is sort of like a shimmery eyeshadow, it can do this to your lips and the only fix is to take it off completely and reapply. But to actually get it off, you can't just wipe it off. You would have to lightly scrub to exfoliate it.. because it really dries to your lips. I don't know how else to explain it.
If you have any tips on how you stop this lipstick from caking/drying up on your lips, please message me.
I love this lipstick and don't want to let it go, but it's embarrassing when I'm walking around after only an hour and this happens.
Pretty Please is a pretty pale pink with a lustre finish. However, I find that it doesn't provide great coverage. If you're looking for a gorgeous light milky pink with the best coverage, try MAC MLLE. Amazing! This is my second favourite lipstick to MLLE.
i love this pretty shimmery pink color the only sad thing about this is the day i bought it the bullet broke so now everytime i apply it wiggles everywhere but i still love this alone or over other lipstick
I have extremely pigmented lips and i am always trying to find a lipstick to go under my lipgloss...note- UNDER my lipgloss. I swatched this in the store and fell in love. I am pretty pale and with a couple of swipes, this was a pretty, pale pink color, which is what I am constantly looking for. When I put this on my lips, yes, it did look a little drying. But I never wear lipstick on its own, so this isn't a problem for me. All in all,I really like this.
Nice light pink frosty color. I like to put this on some of my darker lipsticks to add a nice sheen or to lighten a color a bit. This can also replace lipgloss for those days you don't have full on gloss, this will add just a touch of shimmery non sticky highlight. However, I don't think it's worth the price so I'm thinking of exchanging this for another color. Decent though.
I personally love this lipstick a lot, and I'm surprised a lot of people hate it. Yes it's sheer, and yes it's pale, but you just have to know how to use it the right way for the look your going for. Lustre finishes are probably one of my favorite finishes by MAC, especially in the lighter shades because I have fairly pigmented lips and these give just enough coverage to help tone the color down a little. It can also be built up to be much lighter though. For an every day look, I'll just dab a little bit on my lips rather than just swiping it on, and I'll finish it off with a slightly darker pink lip gloss like Nymphette. I think it looks great on me and most people that I use it on. I'm NW 20 in the winter and up to NC 35 in the summer for reference.
if you like white lips buy it but if your like me and want to look alive stay away from pretty please
I LOVE THIS!!!!! I find this colour so beautiful! I'm a huge fan of light coloured lips with a bronze face, and I find this colour brightens my lips and makes them look more plump, and makes my skin tone look darker since this colour is pretty light, it's my favourite! However, the only bad thing I can say, and this is about any MAC lipstick, is that I find that I have to keep reapplying my lipstick every hour or so.
This is my favourite lipstick!! It looks amazing! beautiful for a natural everyday look (maybe too sheer for the night). LOVE IT!!
It's funny how everyone on here with a darker skin tone is saying how terrible this looks.. well just to be different, I am going to say personally i think it looks AMAZING with a tan!
I'm naturally quite pale, but often wear a fake tan when i go out. i have very dark hair and eyes and this just compliments a smokey eye something amazing.. think kim kardashian. I got a compliment on my lips the first night i wore it (male) and my best friend asked what shade i was wearing. i think this can work with most skin tones, it's all about balancing all your makeup to achieve a look to compliment it!
