So here it is, my first non nail polish related post to kick off my new format, there are still are few things to fix but I’m getting there slowly. I am still yet to change the name of my Facebook page, there was a hoop to jump and there was something about requesting documentation of the name change and I just put it in the “too hard” basket for now. If anyone knows the trick to changing the name for a Facebook page, please let me know!
I’ve just got a swatch of one of my favourite lipsticks to share with you today. You provably guessed from the blog post title that it’s a MAC one called Flat Out Fabulous.
My cousin very nicely picked this up for me when she last went overseas, thank you duty free! New Zealand is a terrible place to be a make up addict because everything is so expensive! A MAC lipstick retails for $40 at least here! I’m yet to try using youshop but soon.. Soon.. Hello birthday blowout.
Flat Out Fabulous is a bright plum slash pink in a matte finish. It applies typically like a matte lippy would, read: there is some dragging on the lips as expected but the colour payoff is fantastic. On my fairer skinned friends it comes off as a more Fuschia toned colour but on me it’s very traditionally hot pink – which I like. It’s extremely wearable (but that’s coming from the girl who would wear black lipstick to the office) and withstands eating and drinking quite well, I would find that I don’t need to reapply until I have my afternoon smoko break. I also find that you don’t get as much of the lipstick on the chin with this as you would with say MAC Diva (which is my all time favourite MAC lipstick).
Love and glitter!
