When I spotted it on Kaitlyn Bristowe on the latest season of The Bachelor, I knew I had to find her lip shade. Turns out, thanks to Twitter, her signature lip shade is MAC Retro Matte Lipstick in Flat Out Fabulous.
MAC’s Flat Out Fabulous ($16) is seriously flat out fabulous. It’s described on MAC’s website as a bright plum matte. It does feel dry on my lips, but it doesn’t highlight dry patches. You do have to layer up the color because the bullet is slightly dry when you apply, but once the color is on, it’s there for good. This shade is very saturated! It lasts on me from morning until lunch, but it doesn’t stand up to food and drink too well.
MAC’s Retro Matte isn’t the best matte formula I’ve tried, but it’s still a good option, and this shade is to die for.
I did MAC’s recycling program Back to MAC to get this lipstick completely free! All you have to do is turn in 6 old, used up products in their primary packaging, and voila! Read up on Back to MAC.
