MAC lipstick impassioned flat out fabulous happy go lucky blog review

Happy-Go-Lucky, Flat-Out-Fabulous, Impassioned
MAC Lipsticks

MAC lipstick impassioned happy go lucky flat out fabulous swatches
Swatches from Left to Right:
Impassioned, Flat-out-fabulous & Happy-go-lucky.

Impassioned Lipstick
I chose this because it is unlike any colour I have. It's a red-y-pinky pop of colour. 
Mac describe this as a 'Amped up Fuchsia'
Amplified Creme lipstick. Lovely and creamy to apply with a good colour pay-off.

Flat-Out-Fabulous
This is my first ever 'Retro Matte' formula. Matte lipsticks can be quite drying and my lips are rarely chap free! Since using Nuxe reve de miel lip-balm, my lips have been much more nourished, hence why I took the plunge and opted for this 'Retro Matte'.
I thought, if I don't get on with a matte finish i'll just add a lip-gloss or Papaya Gold paw paw balm over the top to change it up and add a sheen.

Flat-Out-Fabulous is a bright Plum fuchsia, tinged with pink, with a retro matte finish.

A 'Retro Matte' formula is a matte lipstick only matte-er! 
Like i said can be a little drying and settle into and chapped lines so prep is essential before hand. Lip-balm is a must.

Happy-Go-Lucky Lipstick
This one I chose partly because..well I love the name! but also because I was after a bright hot pink. 
It was a toss-up between this or candy yum yum. 
I chose happy-go-lucky for it's amplified creme finish. Colour with a creamy sheen finish to it
So if you are looking for a candy yum yum colour pay-off that's not a matte finish this 'happy-go-lucky' is the one for you. 
With it's amplified creamy formula and great colour pop!

Think 'Impassioned' and 'Happy-go-lucky' are really lovely brights perfect to wear for summer. 
'Flat-out-fabulous' will be a lovely plum-fuchsia for Autumn.
Forgot to mention MAC lipsticks have a gorgeous vanilla scent and taste!

Have you tried any of these delicious lipstick colours?

Take time for you. Take care and look after yourself.
