Mac lipstick help

I bought the Please Me lipstick from the real MAC site, but it seems a bit different to my other lipsticks.
I read online that all authentic lipsticks have the batch code on the bottom, but mine doesn't it just has the finish and shade name.
It also has the shade in a sticker on the top rather than printed onto the box, and the barcode at the side is a sticker not printed onto the box and the batch code isn't on there either, it's printed on the bottom of the box
The lipstick itself looks fine and has the vanilla smell, and obviously I had it from the authentic site just confused about the box?

Sometimes they print the shade name on the box; other times it's on a sticker. I seem to remember seeing both. Don't worry about it. Anomalies happen.

Yes I've seen it both ways as well. I wouldn't be concerned especially since you got it off their site and it had the right scent

Is not having batch code on the bottom just an accident in printing the labels? Is this normal? I ask because I actually got a "Hang Up" lipstick that was missing a batch code. I'm pretty positive its authentic (I have over 70 tubes purchased over the years and I can usually spot a fake a mile away), but it just threw me when it arrived with no batch code.
