Product Purchased by IMBB
Those who know me, might be shocked to see this choice of mine. I have always been a lover of n*de/neutrals with mild variations. I had no idea that I would pick up this shade, but all thanks to you lovely ladies who sport bold fun shades and inspire me. Thus came home the Flat Out Fabulous from the “Retro Matte” range of MAC to my home.
Inspired by Ruby Woo’s overwhelming popularity and one-of-a-kind texture, MAC introduces new bold shades in its Retro Matte finish. Eye-catching colours like Dangerous and All Fired Up create a look that’s fiercely feminine.
My Experience with MAC Retro Matte Lipstick – Flat Out Fabulous:
This comes in the regular MAC packaging, nothing fancy, just functional and classy matte black. Details of the product are mentioned on the outer carton.
Shade: I have not seen such a bold bright neon shade in a long time. I may say I have never seen such a shade. Bold bright is fine, but neon? Yes, during the day when you wear it alone, it is a neon pink with hints of purple. It looks so bold that I feel awkward at times, but this shade has surprisingly fetched me compliments from absolute strangers. I had doubts regarding the shade as I have very strong yellow tones to my skin whereas this is a cool-toned shade. If you put this on, you have to keep the rest of the makeup understated unless you are walking the ramp. This can be a total head turner in parties, so if you are still looking for the bold cool neon pink, look no further.
Texture: As the name states, it is a purely matte lipstick with no shimmers or glitters, but it glides pretty well on the lips. There is no tugging or pulling and the color deposits in one swipe. The intensity of the shade can be built up though on swiping multiple times. Your lips do not feel dry unless you have very dry lips. After 3-4 hours, a lip balm might be required.
Exfoliation is something very important as the matte texture is unforgiving and might tend to focus on dry patches and fine lines. Also worth mentioning is the lightweight texture of the lipstick, it is like applying nothing on the lips.
Staying Power: It stays LONG, like really long. It stayed on me for more than 6-7 hours, but it stains like hell. You just cannot get rid of the stain no matter what you try. I have tried with oil, makeup remover, lip scrub, no avail. It will just stay! don’t be shocked if I say the stain lasted till the next day with all meals in between.
