I have had this lipstick since right back in my haul post here, but haven't been able to wear it until recently as my lip started to heal. I must admit not being able to wear lipstick for a while really threw me, I know it sounds silly but I really missed a good old swipe of lippie in the morning. I have had a bit of an addiction to stocking them up for when I could wear them again so now I can I think I have a bit too much choice in the mornings. I chose this shade after falling in love instantly after swatching and knew I needed to have it in my life.

Available from MAC and Debenhams.

Flat Out Fabulous is a beautiful vivid pink which I have fallen so in love with. MAC describe it as a 'bright plum matte' although I would say this is way more pink than plum, but has a huge fuschia tone running through it. To me, it is like a perfect winter pink as it still has a bit of a berry feel about it. It does look a lot darker in the bullet than it comes across as, as you will see it is definitely a lot more vibrant in real life. The colour itself is perfect for a night out or if you are like me, just to glam up a daytime look with simple eye makeup.

The formula of this is perfect, it doesn't bleed, lose colour or anything. I seem to change my mind all of the time, but currently this is my favourite finish as it just sits perfectly. I actually wore this for a 10 hour shift and only had to touch up the corners at lunchtime, if I hadn't eaten I honestly think I wouldn't have needed to touch it at all either. For a matte based formula it doesn't feel too drying at all, but then I don't seem to have a huge problem with matte finishes anyway. This will probably haunt me when the weather gets colder and I will be moaning that my lips are dry though!

When I think of how a lipstick should be, to me this is perfect and I know it will be a colour that will be automatically replaced every time it is used up.

  3. This is a wonderful shade on you! It looks a bit cool-toned, but I think it would work well for warmer-toned women as well!
