MAC Strength Collection for Spring 2013: Pink Pigeon Lipstick - Pictures & FOTD

Hello Everyone

Hope you all are happy and healthy. 

MAC Cosmetics recently launched the Strength Collection in India. MAC Cosmetics describes the collection as below: 

Colour is a vehicle for women to flex their femininity, and M•A•C’s new collection reflects this state of mind and style. It starts with dramatic eyes and lips pumped up with vivid colour to project power while cheeks are softly chiseled with natural tones. And, nailing it for overall presentation, M•A•C’s high-gloss Nail Lacquer.

This collection has enticing vivid shades of lipsticks, bright fuchsia, violet, red and blackened brown. The shade which attracted me most was Pink Pigeon. It's a lovely neon pink with hint of violet. On my NC40ish skintone the hint of violet is very prominent. Perfect shade for Spring/ Summer. 

I think that, this shade is very similar to MAC's Show Orchid (review here) sans the violet frost/ shimmer in Show Orchid. However, I have to still swatch the two lipsticks side by side to see if they are really similar. Will post the swatches of Pink Pigeon, a few comparison swatches and a complete review soon. 

As of now, I am loving the lipstick in terms of it's formula, texture, pigmentation and wear time.

Here are a few pictures of the lipstick and a quick FOTD I did using this lovely shade:
