MAC Retro Matte Lipstick FLAT OUT FABULOUS (Rs 1190/ 3 g), available across MAC stores countrywide.
Flat Out Fabulous comes in a standard MAC Black Bullet packaging and is priced just like other regular MAC Lipsticks. The packaging is strong and feels quite sturdy. The lipstick has the signature vanilla scent , typical of all MAC Lipsticks. I like!!
Flat Out Fabulous is described as a bright plum matte
by MAC . In my opinion it is a bright fuchsia matte with strong plum undertones. It is a vivid and bright shade, and so much more gorgeous on the lips than in the tube. The shade pops against my medium skin and is in one word just GORGEOUS. A lot of people have compared it to the L’Oreal Moist Matte Lipstick in Glamor Fuchsia (reviewed HERE
). I also believe they’re similar but not exactly same. While Glamor Fuchsia is is more creamy as compared to Flat Out Fabulous, it is also more purple as compared to Flat Out Fabulous, and unless you’re a lipstick addict and a MAC matte fan like me, you DON’T need both!
Flat Out Fabulous has the much coveted Retro Matte finish Finish and provides rich, intense and opaque color coverage with a powdery dry matte finish in just a single swipe. Since it is a Retro Matte, you may have lip drying issues with it. I haven’t had any such problems with it if I wear it for one day, however ,wearing this particular shade for two days in a row can leave you with slightly dry lips. Wearing it on properly exfoliated lips and treating your lips with a balm 10 mins prior to application can help you deal with it.
It stays on for a whole day
, unless you remove the color off your lips with a makeup remover and yet your lips will be stained with a bright plum color for long after that.. The lipstick takes about a minute to settle on your lips post which there is hardly any transfer.
With Flat Out Fabulous, you don’t need a lip liner and you don’t have to worry about feathering or bleeding.
Overall, I am so in love with Flat Out Fabulous and I’m glad I was able to pick this color from an outlet in Bangalore when it was all out of stock here in Delhi/NCR. It is by far the best Matte Fuchsia-Plum I’ve ever worn and every time I wear this lip color, I get complimented on my lipstick. Flat Out Fabulous is transfer resistant, survives meals and drinks and stays on and on until you decide to take it off. The texture may bother those struggling with dry lips , but there’s always a way out when you have to wear a color as gorgeous as this!!
