Mac Retro Matte Lipstick in Flat Out Fabulous Swatch

1:07:00 PM

Have you ever experienced being in love with a lipstick? like you can't sleep coz you kept thinking about buying that one particular lipstick? Well I have. LOL... I'd like you to meet my current lipstick obessesion, Mac Retro Matte Lipstick in Flat Out Fabulous.

The M.A.C Retro Matte Lipstick Collection was released around September 2013, but I bought it a couple of months after because it got sold out so fast at our local MAC counter in Rustan's Ayala Center Cebu.  Good thing I knew someone who was in US at the time and was coming home a few days after. So, I asked a favor from her to buy me this lipstick. I paid her Php 900. But it retails for Php 1,000 at our local Mac Counters.

The Mac Flat Out Fabulous is a new addition to their permanent line of lipsticks. It is not limited edition, so you can still buy this if it is back in stock. As I've said, this gets sold out very quickly so I suggest you befriend the pretty ladies working at MAC and have it reserved for you. hehe

As the name suggests, this has a Matte finish. If you're already a fan of Mac Matte Lipsticks like Riri Woo, then this one has that very same formula.

This shade is described as a bright plum matte lipstick.  Though, it looks slightly different in my photos. It has more purple undertone in person.

I have always loved bright lipsticks, that's why I got my eyes peeled on this one when I first saw it. I also noticed that this looks very similar to Nars Schiap when swatched. So, if you still can't get your hands on this, Nars Schiap lipstick would be a good alternative.

Until next time.

  1. Love it! I also thought of NARS Schiap right after I saw your swatch. Thanks for the swatch! :D

  2. I've always wanted to try out Nars Schiap.

    Anyway, this is my current favorite lipstick. Ang ganda.

  3. Wow! This color really looks awesome and I can see it translating well across different skintones. I love NARS Schiap too, so I guess it's only natural for me to like this :P

  4. Thanks girls @peachypinksisters @Krisella @heyhanee @Rae @Tellie
    Definitely a lipstick worth spending hehe ^_^

  5. i have always love the barbie pink!! ahh this is so pretty :D

  6. The color screams to me! Loveee ♥

  7. ganda ng color! reminds me of their all fired up lipstick :)

  8. 1,100? I recently purchased at the MAC counter sa Rustans and they were only sold for P1000.

  9. @Elle, It was 1,100 when it first came out as a limited edition. Then when it became part of the permanent lipstick line, it's now 1,000.

  10. I like how it pops, though I was hoping the color would be as true as what it looks like on the bullet. I'm scouring the net for a fall-ready MAC lipstick. :)
