Mac Cosmetics's Flat Out Fabulous lipstick review:

"You must be ready to burn yourself in your own flame. How could you rise anew if you have not first become ashes?"

- Friedrich Nietzsche


Hello beauties!! Here is the reveal that many of you have been asking for! The lipstick I was wearing in my previous post :)

packaging0Mac has to be hands-down my favorite packaging. So simple and classic.


packaging2.... Swoon!

packaging3This color is stunning.. Literally became my favorite lipstick overnight.

swatch1Retro Mattes are supposed to be slightly less drying than Mac's traditional matte formula.

swatch2It's an absolutely gorgeous berry shade, it can lean pink or slightly purple depending on the pigmentation of your lips and also what lip liner you pair it with. I think it's a great shade for absolutely any season! It's bright enough for Spring & Summer, but also a great Fall and Winter shade. It's seriously perfect.

s2As with any matte, it's definitely more drying. Make sure to exfoliate really well first and apply a light layer of lip balm underneath and you should be fine! If I'm wearing this for a long period of time, I'll dab lip balm over top and it doesn't mess with the staying power it all. This lipstick literally lasts all day long, even better than Riri Woo does for me!

s1This lipstick is perfection. That's all I can say.

I've been eyeing this shade for months and I am SO happy I finally got it! It's even better than I expected. Highly recommended :)
