Pretty Please, Intricate Lipsticks

MAC Love Lace Collection: Lips

I’m going to focus on reviewing the lipsticks and lipglasses in this post…  Overall, I wasn’t too impressed — pretty underwhelmed with the shade range, and as “cool” as the concept is for Intricate/Utterly Discrete, neither was pigmented enough to show up well on my lips!


  • Intricate is an ultra sheer plummy brown with multicolored shimmer. It’s quite sheer, even with many, many layers in a swatch.  It has a very frosty finish.
  • Pretty Please is a sheer, cool-toned, light pink with soft shimmer. This is a permanent shade.


  • Utterly Discrete is a sheer brown-based gloss with multi-colored shimmer (with a healthier dose of pinky-purple shimmer). It’s very much a complement to Intricate lipstick.  It looks very similar to Icescape on lips, sans the milky pink.
  • Icescape is a sheer, milky pink base with brighter iridescent pink and purple shimmer. This is a repromote.
