 MAC Lipstick in 'Pink Plaid' | £15

A few weeks before Christmas, I was naughty. I picked up another MAC lipstick to reward myself for completing my Christmas shopping - lame, but it had to be done. I picked up the shade 'Pink Plaid' which is described as a 'dirty blue-pink' and it is a matte finish (I know - me and my mattes). It's a beautiful colour which I agree, it is a more 'dirty' pink, not an in your face pink at all. It's definitely a blue toned too which is a lot more suitable for my pale skin (IMO) and it always makes your teeth look whiter if you're into that too!
Sorry that my face is quite washed out, but this was the most true to life colour I could get for the lipstick. It's a very pretty pale pink, I'm not a big fan of actual nude shades so a pale pink for me, is a nude. I have been reaching for this pretty much everyday for work, it's just a perfect colour for me. It's also not that drying, it's more drying than the majority of my lipsticks (including Topshop's matte ones!), but it's not excessive by any means and it's not that much of a problem that it's a deal breaker for me. It also lasts a pretty average time - an easy 2-3 hours wear with drinking!

Whilst I'm still not sold on MAC lipsticks, their formulas and the hype around them, I am completely and utterly sold on this shade.
