MAC Flat out Fabulous

New MAC babies, come to mama! When I heard about the new Retro matte collection my heart started beating a little faster & when I saw this one in particular - Flat out Fabulous - I was all over it! :)

It's described as a 'bright matte plum' - it's more pinky than plum I'd say, but gorgeous! It looks darker in the tube than it does on the lips. I love wearing these kinds of shades, they really brighten up your face. I wore this yesterday with Magenta lip liner, and they work well together. I got three separate compliments when I wore it, which was a bonus. The finish is Retro matte, which means it's really dry... if you prefer glossy you probably won't like these on their own. I personally love wearing bright matte colours, I think they look a bit edgier and cooler. Plus, there's the bonus that you don't have to worry about a matte lipstick smudging on your teeth or slipping around your face. You just slick it on and go. This one did drag a bit, so I would recommend exfoliating and moisturising before you apply it to make it more comfortable.

  1. Wow! This is gorgeous, I've literally ran over to Debenhams website (Well... Typed. I'm honestly not so good at the literal running,) and they have sold out in this colour already! Clearly its going to be a favourite this Winter! Lucky you getting to nab one up so quickly!

  2. Yes yes yes. You know I love a good purple magenta, this is definitely going in my shopping basket right now! Xx
