MAC Flat out Fabulous Lipstick

Hey there!

Today I thought I would introduce you to a current lipstick love of mine. It is by MAC (of course) and it's called Flat out Fabulous.

I was first introduced to this lipstick in London at the beginning of January when I went into the Carnaby Street Pro Store to try out a foundation.. cue me sitting in the chair getting new foundation, concealer, powder, blusher,lip liner and lipstick applied. Of course when you are sat in the chair you know you'll have to buy something, so I did.

Two of my purchases were Flat out Fabulous and the matching lip pencil, Magenta. Let's just say dear readers that from the moment these two products were applied it was love. Flat out Fabulous is a Matte Lipstick and is described as a Bright Plum by MAC and Magenta Lip Liner is it's best friend.

You see I had never really been one to use a lip liner, I had never found them useful and they just looked wrong, however my mind has been changed. Magenta lines the lips brilliantly and helps to keep everything in place. 

This lipstick-lipliner duo lasted for most of the day on Valentines Day when I first wore it. Meals were eaten, drinks were drunk and only one tiny retouch was needed. I was very impressed.

What do you think?

Lots of Love,

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in 'Anarchy'


Today I thought I would share with you a lipstick I am currently IN LOVE with... this love has come along quickly but it is a love that will be around for a while to come.

The Lipstick in question is the Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in the colour Anarchy.

Urban Decay Revolution Lipstick in Anarchy

I know the face picture is a little out of focus, I was playing around with the camera before I filmed a video but it shows the lipstick colour perfectly.

Buying this lipstick was my first jump into the world of Urban Decay lip products and it is a world that I have to say I am very impressed by. Let's start with the colour itself. Anarchy can only be described as a hot pink, which is perfect for any bright lipstick fanatic like myself. The pigmentation of this lipstick is insane and it is a colour which I think I will be rocking all the way through Spring and well into Summer.

Formula wise, they apply to the lips with no dragging and they feel extremely creamy which I really enjoy in any lipstick. The Urban Decay Revolution Lipsticks contain a blend of jojoba oil, avocado oil, cocoa butter and shea butter, which helps to keeps lips nice and soft and moisturised.

With a super creamy finish, you expect the lasting power to be poor but this is where you are wrong, my dear readers. This lipstick has the staying power of a long lasting thing, I can have a cup of tea and some food with my family and still not have to touch up. In fact, when I recently went into a MAC store to trial a foundation, I had to really scrub my lips to get all the colour off them.

Overall I am super impressed with this lipstick and will definitely be on the look out to getting a few more shades. Have you tried this lipstick or any of the other Urban Decau Revolution Lipsticks? What colours should I look into next?

Lots of Love,
