Don't be daft. Magenta is the lightest/brightest of the colours made from mixing red and blue light, it's full red and full blue, there is no paler without adding in green light (magenta pigments are rare). This very probably is a language or translation issue.

When I was a kid I was told that mauve was a colour that I'd now describe as a redish purple, or darker but similar to magenta, which I'd say is an almost pinkish colour.
