I bought this on a whim, thinking it was a beautiful light pink inside the store; once I tried it on my NC35 skin, I thought it looked tacky, too 80s, and unflattering. I had jet black hair and it also made me look sallow.
Cut to months later in which I re-found it in my stash. My dark hair is dyed a reddish brown. My skin tone is still an NC35. With smoky eyes, this lipstick is uniquely GORGEOUS. Retro, quirky, pin-up, pale beige-mauve with very undertones, nothing like any other lipstick I have seen. It is creamy and not drying, either, and seemingly more opalescent the more layers you put it on. Perfect for certain moods and different looks.
I regret not buying a second one!

First of all let me rant about the packaging for the Aquatic collection. MAC is well known for having the most BORING packaging there is. that's all fine and good for the permanent collection but for a special one it was really nice to see something different. The aquatic collection, espcially the lipsticks has the nicest packaging I've seen in MAC so far, the outside of it actually looks like it has water droplets on it which is perfect for a summer collection.
now the colour itself is a VERY pale nude/mauve colour like others have mentioned before me so think carefully about this purchase. the more you build the colour the more metalic it becomes. not shimmery but rocker-chic metalic!
I found the colour very unique and I could see myself using it with very dramatic eyes for an evening look.
the colour lost a star because it's not a practical colour. frosty lipsticks are already tricky to pull off so now add a non-typical colour that goes on metalic to the mix and you'll get the idea.

This color was re-released in the spring 2014 aquatic collection. It was one of two I wanted to try but sadly the only one available. It' is a VERY frosty Nude that on me leans pink. I do not find my drying as other reviewers did so they may have changed the formula from last release. If you don't like frost skip this one, you will not like it. Darker skin tones may need to rock this over other colors that they might want to change the color on. I have lite/medium tone skin and this shows up very almost white on me. However it is opaque. I could rock this with the right outfit/makeup look for summer. When I got this I tried it on and then layered my lip queen's "Jean Queen" over the top which made that lippy turn a lighter peachy pink really pretty. I do like this it's not my normal go to shade but I will see how much I will use it this summer.

I really like this lipstick as it is unique and different to any I have seen before. It's a lovely mauve and the more you build it, the more metallic it becomes. There is no glitter, which is a possitive.
Downsides are that its a little bit dry, so maybe a balm underneath or a gloss over would improve this.
I wouldn't repurchase as I think it'll last a while as it isn't the sort of shade I go to everyday & It was limited edition.

Pet Me,Please just shipped to me today, and so far, I really like it. The color in the tube is identical to the color shown on this review. However, buyer beware, it looks a bit more pink on the MAC website. So when I opened the box, I was a *tinge* disappointed to not see a more pinky tone--it's definately a very pale nude/beige/mauve. With that said, I'm still pleased with my purchase! I can't wait to wear it with a super smokey eye. Fellow reviewers mention the frostiness of this lipstick often. And yes, the more you apply the more dramatic the frost becomes. However, it's not glittery at all.
My only complaint: I wish it had a smoother application (this is the ONLY reason I gave Pet Me, Please a 4 for overall rating). The texture doesn't feel as buttery as I expected. Layering on a lip moisturizer first and that seemed to help.
All in all, this lipstick is lovely and I can't wait to wear it again!

When I first swatched this lipstick on my hand I was in awe of its beauty. A breathtaking nude shimmery silver pink.
Frosts can be difficult to wear so my lips have to be in great condition in order for me to wear this. I wear it with a thick layer of Burt's Bees and then a thin layer of MAC Naked lip pencil underneath.
As much as MAC Creme d'Nude is a staple and MAC Myth with a clear lipgloss over the top is another nice nude alternative, Pet Me, Please has an edge over them. I am seriously considering buying a backup.
If you want a non typical nude, are able to prep your lips into a smooth condition, and aren't afraid to play around with it - consider purchasing Pet Me, Please - you might fall in love with it like I did.
EDIT: Bought a back up from eBay =)

So I ordered this last weekend thinking I had changed my mind about the FF collection, which struck me as pretty sub par. So I got this and boy oh boy the quality of the lipstick left much to desire. The texture was like an 80's version chapstick. My lips aren't very pigmented so I didn't think I would have any problems with the color showing up. Wrong again, this looked like I had some grey tinted subtle body shimmer smeared on my lips. The lasting power was zilch. Kind of like " The food was terrible, and there was so little of it!" it even felt unpleasant on my lips, which is saying something because I can wear any matte l/s without complaint. Maybe I got a bum product? I can't find a redeeming thing about it

I love this lipstick - it's so different from any other shade I own! It's *slightly* mauveish but really more of an interesting nude/neutral colour, and it looks really great with a smokey eye. Yes, it is quite frosty, but not as much as some other MAC shades (Sandy B, Color Me Coral etc) so I think you can just about get away without wearing a gloss over it. It really fills a gap in my collection - it's a nude which isn't pasty/washed out/too pink/boring - it's a lovely, sophisticated and unusual lipstick and I've bought a back-up. I would swatch it before buying though, because although it's great for me I can imagine some people might not like it or suit it.
EDIT: I bought another backup. This is so unique and I find myself reaching for it a lot. Looking at the reviews it seems it might be one of those love/hate products but I'd recommend giving it a shot. I have 50+ lipsticks and I'd place this in my top 5.

I absolutely love this color! I think it is so unique and nothing that I could find alike in any other brand or permanant shade of mac. Even though this is labeled as a frost finish, I find it more comparable to a luster. Why do I say this? Well for 1. I can't stand frost finishes. I find them garish and glittery and overly sparkly. I find this color difficult to describe but I would say it is a light mauve, kind of a neutral cool brown tone to it, but with a slight, ever so slight hint of purple/pink to the color. As for a comparison that I think of when I wear this color, I compare it to pretty please by mac. This color has the same "finish" qualities as pretty please except for the obvious more nude-brown-mauve colroing that this lipstick takes on. I think this is great non-traditional nude that instead of leaning toward the peach as being nude this one leans towards a true "pink" nude that all our lips really possess; ok plus the luster like glisten finish!

I know this lipstick is extremely frosty and garish, but I really don't care..I LOVE it! It takes a certain amount of self confidence and knowing what to wear with this lipstick to make it work. The color is not so much a pink, but a dusty mauve with a slight silvery frost. I usually find frost lipsticks tend to make on look either very aged, or very 80s, I don't know why this one is so different. I think this lipstick leans to the cooler side (but I am about NC20 and I wear it with no issues) and it looks very good paired with more cool colors. The Palace Pedigreed quad looks really lovely paired with this. I have found using a reverse lip liner is best for this lipstick, and even though this is a frost lippie, it is very opaque. Overall this is a very fun lipstick, but I don't think it is very everyday wear at all, more of a fun going out color. I might purchase a backup.
