Im a bit surprised by this lipstick - I actually think its one of the more unique lipstick colors I've found in MAC. This is to me, basically, a nearly effortless nude. It very naturally blocks out the pigment in your lips just enough for a light sheer nude lip, on me it looks just the slightest bit milky. This is exactly the look I was hoping for when I bought this - to achieve it perfectly though I do need to wear this over a lipbalm which tones down the frost. Wearing this alone it is just a smidge too frosty and typically of MAC lipsticks - a bit drying.
I am blond/blue/fair and yet couldn't figure out how to get Pretty Please to work, for the longest time. I kept going back to my secret stash of Real Doll for the Mod retro look.
Every time I tried Pretty Please, it seemed to look thin and odd, kindof like a lippy somebody had worn for a couple of hours, you know? Silvery and dry.
In the spirit of giving it "one last try" I just applied it much more heavily than I normally would, 5 or 6 swipes, and voilà! There we were, lush and pale and shiny all at once.
After letting it set, Pretty Please looks good for quite awhile, and responds well to touch-ups. Contrary to some rumors, (and reviews) it's still available from M.A.C.'s website -as of today anyway.
On me it's a bit more on the nude-beige side more than the baby pink but has it's place if you are looking for the somewhat invisible but polished lip, this might be just the thing.
Why wouldn't I buy it again? I don't know, Pretty Please is not a bad product, once you get it working, I just prefer the slightly more pink of Real Doll or Dior's discontinued Pink Magnet, this is purely a shade preference.
wow so many positive ratings hmm not from me...it looks like a cheap £1 lipstick on me its so shiny and washes me out in a sick way. i really dont like it. i keep trying to find ways in which i could make it wearable, ive kind of lost hope.. (i like mac lipsticks but the colour looks really cheap)
I'm on my third of this one. I'm a bit tan, cool skin tone, blue eyed and blonde and this looks fab on me, makes me look more tan and brings out the blue in my eyes. I don't use this when I'm véry tan in the summer, it can look a bit tacky then, this is definitly a color for lighter skin tones. You do have to moisturize first, this doesn't work with chapped lips.
well i have to saay, when i first got this lipstick, i hated it. it was kinda tricky to get this to work for me but now that i know how to wear this, i love it! first, you have to make sure that your lips are very moisturized (no flakes!) and you dont just want to glide it straight across your lips...you have to use a tapping motion and its not very buildable soo dont apply TOO many layers. it doesnt really look that good at first but you have to give it 5 or 10 minutes to let your body heat warm it up and it looks amazingg =)
Its a pearly, pale with minimal pink... Probably a better shade for pale girls with light coloured eyes. I'm an NC30/35 to NC 40 in the summer....so I'm pretty tanned. Anyways NOT a fan of this. I don't know what lipliner or lipgloss to use with this. Its not an everyday colour for me, its a more of a california girl lipstick. I tend to like neutrals and only reach for bold pinks (Snob, Saint Germain) when I'm goin out at night. Anyways, I have to moisturize my lips like crazy before applying because it looks chalky otherwise. I basically have nothing good to say about this colour. I took a risk when I did get it, I got it purely on a Back2Mac ...so I didn't really purchase it. And I probably wouldn't have gotten it if I wasn't at the counter for over 20 mins and was unable to come to a decision as what to get and in the UK they only do back2mac on lipsticks. It was summer when I got it so I figured it would be like Plink! *seashell pink* yet Pretty Please reminds me of a more pinky version of MACs old school Bubbles. And even Bubbles was better to mix and blend other lipcolours with.
Pretty please is a frosted pale pink that looks great in the tube, I just think that the lustre texture does not go with the colour of this lipstick. It does not have a nice coverage at all, it applies very sheer and I dont feel it is buildable either. Because of the sheerness that it has it just looks like i have a pale wet wash on my lips which is not very flattering. I cannot wear this on its own, a lipgloss over the top is definately needed. Great colour, not so great formula.
Pretty Please is a sweet light pink frosty shade. Very pretty, matches well with my cool skin tone. The formula is lustre I believe, which is also nice. Best to apply lip balm before wearing this one, as it is very light pink, and could accentuate dryness. Not too bad though. I would recommend to anyone who loves frosty/pink/dreamy colours on their lips. Good for achieving a mod look, too, if that's something you like. Sweet scent and packaging, as always.
I bought this online after watching a review on the LoveLace collection, I normally don't buy online and when this arrived I opened it and wondered what on earth I had done!! Even when I swatched it on my hand I thought I really had wasted my money, it hardly showed at all. However when I put it on my lips I fell in love, it is very, very sheer and a beautiful nude pink, pale with a little bit of a frosty shimmer.
This brings out the blue in my eyes like nothing else, I'm so glad I have this, it is what I've been searching for for ages and I didn't realise until I bought it.
My friend actually picked this out for me and I love it. I don't think it looks good on its own because its kind of frosty. I usually wear this over MAC petting pink lip conditioner and the two gives off a really nice baby pink color. BTW it is my very first MAC lipstick and I'm hooked =D
