So the packaging is nothing extraordinary or fancy. However, I liked the classy matte black look of the bullet. All the product regarding details is mentioned on the box carton itself.


It is available in all the MAC offline stores. And if you want to buy it online, then go for Nykaa.com or Myntra.com as they keep the original MAC products. Remember, there are several other websites or Insta sellers who sell MAC at a much lesser price, those are purely fake. So don’t fall for the trap! MAC never gives any discounts.

By the name you now know that this MAC lipstick is having no glitter or shimmers in it and it is pure matte lipstick. It glides on your lips like magic and you will get the desired color at one swipe only. However, you need to prep your lips with lip scrubbing and moisturizing before you apply the matte lipstick in order to make your lips look better and feel better.

Staying Power:

All the matte lipsticks stay for long and this MAC retro matte lipstick stays lONGGG for about 12 hours if prep and prime are done well otherwise will stay for approx 8 hours. The stain is like hell and you can’t just get rid of the stain no matter how much you try to wipe it off.

Now coming to the point of shade, the Flat Out Fabulous is a bright neon kind of pink which is purely Matte. It is a cool toned muted pink or fuschia pink that suits almost all Indian Skin tones as per me. I was looking for such a bright plum shade for ages and yes, this shade definitely serves the purpose very well. It will add the classiness and sophistication to your face and will flaunt your look more. This can be total head turners in parties and if you wear this you need to keep the rest of the makeup simple and understated as well unless you are walking the ramp.

My Personal Opinion:

MAC has launched their Retro Matte Lipsticks in some selective shades. However, I have purchased the most hyped Ruby Woo along with the Flat Out Fabulous. Do let me know if you want me to do a review on Ruby Woo as well.

Anyway, coming to the point of my personal review- this shade of MAC retro matte lipstick gives you full matte lips. It is not as drying as other matte lipsticks available in the market. This pink matte cool toned lipstick will suit all Indian Skin tones. But according to the price point, my expectation was a little higher though there is no such bad thing about it.

Will I Recommend it to Anyone?

Yes! I definitely recommend it to everyone. If you are looking for a bright plum pink shade, then you must hit on the Flat Out Fabulous from the MAC Retro Matte Lipstick.
