MAC Iris Apfel Flamingo Lipstick

Afternoon all!

Hope you are all having a lovely Saturday! 

A couple of days ago i received the only product that i ordered from the Iris Apfel for MAC collection. As with ordering online and not many other swatches of the products on the internet i made my decision pretty much based on description only. 'Flamingo' was described as a 'Light, milky bright coral' and with a lustre finish i knew it wouldnt be too intense so i went ahead and ordered.

The press release i actually received for this collection stated that this was an online collection only however i have heard from some fellow beauty lovers that they have managed to snaffle the collection in store.
I find it to be quite sheer and the swatches are from the lipstick being swiped a few times on my hand, however it does build up and i can live with that! 

I am in love with this lipstick! (Kind of wish i got two - but that would be greedy!) The colour in the tube really does pack a punch but swatched it is much more muted as it is a lustre finish but can be built up if required.

As with all MAC lipsticks this retails for £13.50 and is available from the MAC Cosmetics Website however it is currently out of stock. It would be worth a look popping to a counter though! 

Did you pick up anything from this collection?

  10. Wowee, that's one hell of a colour! It kinda looks like Topshop's Neon Rose blush but as a lipstick. I'm sure it looks great on though, especially with a tan!
