This is one of those "I wanted this for the packaging" purchases, I'll just come out and say it! lol the thought of a pale pink MAC lipstick tube tickled my fancy. The color, not so much. I knew going into it that it wouldn't work for me but figured it would be a good lipstick to mix with other colors to lighten them, which it is.
All of the Giambattista Vallie lipsticks are matte, and Bianca B happens to be a super pale pink. It's a gorgeous color, in theory, but I find it hard to believe this will work alone as a lipstick on ANYONE!
I love the pink tube - like I said, that was my main reason for buying it. I kind of wish all MAC lipsticks were like this, with the color of the lipstick on the actual tube, so that it would be a lot easier choosing when you go to pick a shade to wear!
There is the paleness in all its glory! It's so light it's almost white, and just does not look good as a lipstick shade. It does, however, mix well with pretty much any other lipstick to lighten it, so it looks like I will get some use out of it after all!
