MAC: Flat Out Fabulous.


It's no secret that I'm a lover of bold lipsticks, but a colour I usually shy away from is pink. I'm not a fan of the wishy washy shades, so when Flat Out Fabulous caught my eye I was more than intrigued.

This shade is from the retro matte collection so naturally, I had to have it. The striking colour is described as a 'bright plum matte' however I find traces of fuchsia in. It's amazingly complimentary to my skin tone, which is something I worry about. Being so pale means pink lipsticks can sometimes bring out the red undertones in my skin. As ever with MAC lipsticks (particularly matte) the colour payoff is fantastic, but the formula quite drying. But that's nothing a good scrub and balm prior won't sort out.

Even though purple lips are my true love I find myself reaching for this colour more and more often these days. Eye-catching enough to get you noticed, but subtle enough to not get those 'Purple lipstick during the day?' glares. I think Flat Out Fabulous is one for everyone. Aisling. xo
