Hello Beauties, I hope you're all well! I've been feeling a little down in the dumps recently due to all of my Uni deadlines stressing me out to extreme levels (which is why I haven't been posting as regularly, sorry!), and what better way to cheer myself up a bit than some retail therapy? Me and my friend headed over to West Quay in Southampton to do a spot of Christmas Shopping and while we were there we decided to treat ourselves, multiple times - oops!

I've come to the point now where all of my MAC products seem to be running out at the same time, and while I was having a sort through my make up draws I realised I had enough empty products to use their Back To MAC scheme and grab myself a free lipstick (always a good day). I headed over to the MAC counter early to avoid the crowds of teenage girls fan-girling over the lipsticks so I could have a proper look, and came out with Flamingo. 

I recently gave my Sunny Seoul MAC Lipstick to my Mum after letting her borrow it a couple of times, as she really did use it more than I ever did, which left a big coral MAC lipstick shaped hole in my life, and along came Flamingo to fill that hole. I know this isn't the most winter appropriate lipstick I could have gone for, however I find that winter shades just don't suit me like nudes, pinks and corals do. 

Flamingo was originally part of the All About Orange collection which was released a few years ago (way before I was properly into MAC and make up) so I unknowingly missed it the first time, however MAC have recently released the four lipsticks from the All About Orange collection into their permanent lipstick line up. I'd say Flamingo is the least 'orange' out of the lot and is a pretty pinky coral colour with a hint of orange. It's more of a natural coral colour and looks really pretty on pale skin, if I do say so myself. It's a lustre formula which glides onto the lips effortlessly and looks really creamy once applied. 

Overall, I really love this lipstick and I think its the perfect pinky coral for my skin tone. I can't wait until Summer rolls around again and I can really start to wear this on a more daily basis, even if I am getting ahead of myself a bit there!

Lots of Love,

  1. It looks like such a pretty colour! My skin tone won't suit this at all so I'm a little jealous!
