Hey all beauty geeks!!! Today I am going to review MAC Pander Me lipstick. This is the last lipstick I am reviewing from the matte collection launched by MAC recently. Though technically it is out of stock in India, it is still available online in US and even on Ebay. So, this review is for those beauties who might get lucky with this lipstick and want to know more. And also for rest of us who just enjoy MAC lippies. Lets hope this collection also becomes permanent like The Retro Mattes.
About MAC Matte Lipstick:
MAC Pander Me is a part of the newly launched MAC The Matte Lip Collection. It is a limited edition lipstick. MAC describes its lipsticks as:
‘Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous. ‘
Price : $16.
My take on MAC Pander Me Lipstick:
I have already reviewed three brilliant colors from this collection: MAC Damn Glamorous , MAC Nouvelle Vogue and MAC La Vie En Rouge. Mac Pander Me is the last lipstick I picked up from this collection. In fact, I did want to buy it with the first three, but somehow could not make my mind. The deciding factor was Ayushi’s persistence to get this for her. Though she and I could not get MAC Pander Me for her, I ordered it the moment I reached back to US. So, the credit for me having this lipstick goes to Ayushi. Yay!!!
Mac Pander Me is a very pretty and unique shade. It is one shade which everyone will describe differently, depending on how it looks on them. MAC describes it as ‘ soft peachy mocha’. The lipstick does have a close resemblance to the description. Though I will describe the lipstick as medium brown with burnt orange undertones. It may look more brown or more orange depending on your skin tones. For our Indian skin tone, it is more brown with soft peachy undertone. Phew!!!
Mac Pander Me is a perfect nude for me. I love wearing it with heavy smoky eyes or just plain eye liner. This shade will not wash out medium skin tones and in fact, will brighten your face. The best way I feel is to apply a shimmery gloss on top and you can rock the shade beautifully. This is how I am wearing it in the FOTD.
Texture: Mac Pander Me has a smooth and creamy texture like most of the lipsticks in this collection. However, it has more sheen than the previous three lipsticks I have reviewed. It is definitely matte, but has a slight shine to it. Goes on very evenly and feels really good on the lips.
Pigmentation: Brilliant pigmentation.
Staying Power: Since it is a lighter color, the staying power is around 4-5 hours and you definitely need a touch-up post meals or drinks.
Packaging: Typical MAC packaging. No special packaging.
What I love about MAC Pander Me Lipstick:
- Gorgeous shade of brown with burnt orange under tones.
- Perfect nude color.
- Almost matte finish, with a very slight sheen.
- Brightens up the face.
- Very creamy and smooth.
- Super pigmentation.
- Applies evenly.
- Decent staying power.
- Feels light on the lips.
What I do not love about MAC Pander Me Lipstick:
- No special packaging.
- May look different on people depending on their undertones.
- Limited edition.
Final Impression: Mac Pander Me is my favorite nude lipstick these days. It has enough color not to wash me out and at the same time looks beautiful without being an attention grabber. I know it is pretty difficult to get your hands on this, but you never know, you might get lucky. Highly recommended!!!
