MAC Lipstick Prepare For Pleasure Review, Swatches & FOTD


MAC Lipstick Prepare For Pleasure

Today’s post is a special one. Special because it reminds me of a day a year back, reminds me of a journey worth remembering, reminds me of people whom I have met in the last one year and they are worth treasuring. This day celebrates my birthday and my one year “courtship” with Wiseshe.

Yes, I started writing for Wiseshe just a year back on this very day which was my birthday and no doubt it was one of my best birthday gifts ever. Time flew away with you beautiful people around, learning so many things each day, loving the compliments and love I am getting from the very first day.

Love everybody here; their arduous work made Wiseshe what “she” is today. And Anamika , it takes a lot of courage, confidence, determination and patience to inspire people, like the way you do each & everyday. You made my stay here more fun and happening. Thank you for all the love and motivation. Thank you for changing my life for better Wiseshe.

Anyway, so back to today’s review. I kept this one pending for my “anniversary” day. A special lipstick review on my special day ….
It is MAC Prepare for Pleasure (LE-Divine Nights Collection)

Price: I bought it for 1190INR, now it has increased though 🙁

My experience with MAC Lipstick Prepare for Pleasure:

Packaging: Almost same as the regular MAC bullets, just the silver part is golden here and the outer black portion is a matte black which is shinny black in the regular ones. I just love the golden and matte black combination. And when the lipstick is rolled up, it increases the beauty.

Shade: With so many reds in my vanity, sometimes I get totally confused which to wear with what. This one is a solution. It is a very unique red which is neither cool toned, nor warm. Yes..!! It may sound weird. But the tone depends on your skin tone and lighting. Sometimes it is red with pink and sometimes red with orange undertones. But on me, it is mostly cool-toned red. I really like how different it looks.

But whatever red it is, it is a pretty subtle, wearable red. You can wear it during the day and in the nights too.
It has minute shimmers which is visible in the bullet, but not on lips.

Texture: Its creamsheen, so it is creamy and has a gorgeous sheen. Lovely hydrating creamy texture and keeps lips hydrated for really long.

Pigmentation: Now, it is pigmented, but not as pigmented as I expected. I have to swipe 3-4 times for a proper bold color, though 1-2 swipes are great for just a flush of wearable red.

Staying Power: Being a creamsheen one, it again impressed me with the staying power. I wore it just yesterday for a party, and it stayed on and on. I was there for 6-7 hours and when I came back I could see a gorgeous tint. It did survived meal and drinks.

Final Verdict:-(Recommendation/ Repurchase)
Prepare for Pleasure is truly a pleasure. All my favorites in one lipstick; favorite color, favorite formula, moisturizing, great staying power and decent pigmentation. A very fun shade to wear, non messy, non-sticky (no No Chip Chip, No Jhik Jhik). Being a sucker of red lipstick and creamy formula I love it. It would suit every skin tone and I recommend it to everyone looking for a subtle yet beautiful red.

Rating: 4.7/5
