The upcoming MAC Flamingo Park Collection is a pink lovers dream. The collection is full of existing and limited edition shades of blush, lipstick, beauty powders, lip glosses and more. Whether you love soft and delicate pinks, or bold and vibrant, this collection is sure to please every pink lover.
The MAC Have Your Cake Lipstick ($17 US/$20 CAD) is a bright cool toned magenta purple in a matte finish. It is one of the limited edition shades in the collection.
This is a bold shade that has a depth to it that keeps it from being too bright and in your face, while still having a nice vibrancy to it. The matte finish isn’t flat, and maintains a very subtle sheen for the first couple hours of wear. I found this quite comfortable and not as drying as some MAC matte lipsticks I’ve tried in the past. (Mind you it’s been a while.) I got almost 6 hours of wear, and it wore off quite evenly as it gives a subtle stain to the lips. It was very comfortable and maintained a bit of creaminess for the majority of it’s wear time and only started feeling a bit dry for the last couple of hours. I would normally have touched up by this point anyways.
I really love Have Your Cake. It is such a fun shade against my fair complexion, but not so wild that I feel uncomfortable wearing it.
I plan on ordering a few more of the lipsticks in this collection once it’s released and will share as soon as I can. The MAC Flamingo Park collection will be available online January 28, 2016. Available in-store February 4 through March 19, 2016.
