I picked up Flamingo on a recent shopping trip to Guildford. I tasked my friend to choose three colours for me and after saying no to the first twenty (because I already owned them), I finally said yes to Flamingo!
Think of a sweet, soft coral pink when you think of Flamingo. A beautiful glossy colour, this sugary shade has been a cult favourite for a while, and you can see why. Its perfect blend of cool and warm is bound to suit most skin tones, and the fact that it's a shy pink makes it ideal for everyday wear.
It's been a while since I've purchased a MAC Lustre lipstick. After the phenomena that is 'matte', I think the world has forgotten how sublime creamy textures really are. One swipe and I forgot why matte is so massive.
Lustre is so wearable as a texture. It's soft, illuminating and comfortable. If you like softer pinks but want something slightly glossier for Summer, Flamingo will run your roost!
Colour Intensity: low to medium
Finish: Lustre - glossy look
Overall Rating: 5/5 - top marks from me!
