Flat Out Fabulous

I bought this lipstick back in Summer when I was browsing Mac trying to decide how what to spend a voucher on. The shade is not one that I had heard of before but it has to be said - its beautiful! Maybe its just me but people do not rave about this enough. It has to be my favourite from my Mac collection, here is why:





Described as a 'bright plum' shade, Flat Out Fabulous is the perfect bright pink with purple tones. Pink has to be my favourite colour to wear on a special occasion or night out specifically in Summer however in Winter when I am not going for a dark lip this would totally work too! As it has a retro matte finish exfoliating and applying lip balm before application is an absolute must. However it does glide on smoothly unlike my other pink lipstick from Inglot which you have to literally drag onto your lips. I usually struggle to find a lipstick that lasts a long time on me for some reason, but this one wow. Its down to having such a matte texture that the lipstick stays put for hours. Even through eating and drinking.

As it is such a bold shade, I find using a lip brush the easiest way to apply to make your lip shape perfect. This is the usual for a bold lipstick for me though so I do not mind. Knowing that it will stay on for a long time makes the slightly longer application process worth it!




Have you tried this lipstick?

  2. I have also just purchased FlatoutFabulous and loving it! The shade is gorgeous and very wearable for the season since it's quite deep. I also love that it's a deep MATTE pink! Thanks for sharing your review and swatches.

  8. I've not heard anything about this shade, don't think I've ever read a review on it too. The swatch looks stunning, I can't wait to swatch it myself and hopefully it'll suit my skin tone.

  13. Perfect timing! Just when I plan to go to MAC for a "browse" tomorrow, might have to check this gorg lippie as well. I love bright plums like this one here, indeed ideal for summer but totally rockable during winter.
