Guess who's back..back again...feat MAC Flamingo

So, it seems I am the unofficial comeback queen. Every time I get into to the swing of blogging, something comes crashing down and life gets in the way. It's been a tough few months.

I'm easing myself back into blogging and more scarily, back in front of the DSLR with a nice and easy lipstick of the day post. The most used lipstick of this month, in fact.

MAC Flamingo.

Initially part of the Iris Apfel collection back in 2012, I missed out and regretted it. Re-launched recently in the MAC All About Orange collection I made sure to snap it up straight away. It was a quick sell out on the website and in most stores - I'm still on the hunt for more as back ups.
MAC Flamingo Lipstick FOTD

The colour is pretty much perfect and such a 'me' colour. A milky neon-peach/coral, it reminds me ever so much of China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy nail polish - however do not expect opacity from this lipstick. The Lustre formula, whilst not a favourite of mine, adds a gorgeously glossy sheen to the lips and feels incredibly comfortable. One swipe doesn't really show up on my lips, it does need building up to show the true colour. It also clings to any imperfections so this is one that will require a bit of lip buffing beforehand.
I would absolutely love if this lipstick were a cremesheen formula, but it's still pretty perfect as it is.

If you can get your hands on this - do! Costs £14 from MACCosmetics or MAC Counters.


  1. Flamingo looks like a gorgeous shade, can't believe it's sold out :(

    Glad you're back!!

  2. Thats so pretty, you make it work well! I wish I could wear it but I don't think it would go too well with my skin tone, sob!
