MAC Lipsticks in Please Me and Brave [Review + Swatches]

Aug 10, 2016 | Beauty & Fashion | 7 comments

Here is an in-depth review of MAC Lipsticks in Please Me and Brave.

Since I don’t wear much eye makeup I always go for bright pink or bold red lips. I always wanted my lips to stand out. This has changed when I started this beauty blog. My lipstick game went to a whole new level discovering thru other beauty blogs some new lipstick shades to try. And for today’s beauty post, let me share these gorgeous shades I have been using non-stop. Yes, that’s right!

These are no-brainer shades for any makeup look I create, from simple to dramatic look.


Please Me is a matte medium rosy pink. Meanwhile, Brave is a cool-toned nude pink with a satin finish. Both have a creamy smooth consistency and doesn’t tug on my lips. They look dark in the tubes but registers lighter when applied on the lips.

Both have a sweet vanilla scent which I love.

Me in Mac Please Me

 Here I am wearing a simple makeup – full brows, black eyeliner on the lower lash line and a subtle pink blush. I love how Please Me brings an instant pop of color to my face. It makes my total look fun and girly. It has a noticeable sheen to it hence, more on a semi-matte finish.

Did you like my new hair color? 🙂

 Anyway, here I am wearing almost the same thing except for the winged-liner.

Brave is more on a brownish pink tone that makes the eye part more noticeable than the rest. This shade is perfect for an intense or smokey eye look

My say? Both shades are very pretty and wearable for daily use. I think these will look good on fair to medium skin tones. Staying power is 4 to 5 hours and can survive with a meal. And most importantly, I love that it doesn’t dry my lips. Definitely, two of the shades I can’t live without. 

MAC Please Me and Brave both retail for 1000php and available in MAC Counters near you.

    Pag tinatabi mo sila, di ko madistinguish yung kulay pero nung, suot mo na, ayun! Mas bet ko ang brave! haha. Pero mukhang ang mahal yata nito, haha.
