I went to MAC to get my free lipstick without having done prior research or made prior plans as to what lipstick I wanted to get. I thought I'll just go and see what catches my eye. And the one that caught my eye was this, Pink Plaid.
It's a muted mauvey pink with blue undertones. I don't know why some reviews have called it a barbie pink because this is absolutely nothing like the barbie pinks I imagine. It's a matte formula so it is a tad drying, but that's what happens with mattes.
For me this colour is very very close to my natural lip colour and it hardly looks like I've got lipstick on when I wear it. But I don't mind, it's good for those days when I can't be bothered making too much of an effort.

Comparison to other pink lipsticks
Overall for me this is not a must-have colour. It gives a nice natural look, but it's not anything special, especially not for the price that we pay for MAC lipsticks here in Australia.
