MAC Flamingo Lipstick Swatches and Review - Iris Apfel

The only lipstick I purchased from the Iris Apfel for MAC Collection was Flamingo.  Five lippies were released with this collection - Morange (Loudmouth Orange), Party Parrot (Bright red-pink), Pink Pigeon (bright cleanest pink), Scarlet Ibis (Bright orange-red), and Flamingo

What the MAC Website has to say about their Lipsticks:
Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made M·A·C famous.
3 g / 0.1 US oz

Flamingo (light milky bright coral, lustre) is more pink on the lips, and because of the lustre finish a rather subdued "bright".  Lustre is my favorite finish from MAC, because even when you're timid around brighter shades you can wear the bright of your dreams in a Lustre finish and still feel confident.

A tip for Flamingo - EXFOLIATE the lips before applying.  When I first put this one on my lips were feeling dry and the color clung to every imperfection!

All of the lippies except Morange (which is a permanent shade) are sold out on the website.  I'm having remorse about not getting Scarlet Ibis... I can be a little timid with bright lips (though not as much as I am with a bright shadow), but swatches of this one look amazing!  I'm hoping to find it in store, if I can!!

MAC Lipsticks retail for $14.50 each.  Flamingo is Limited Edition to the Iris Apfel for MAC Collection.  This collection is available at, MAC Stores, and counter locations.  Flamingo is currently sold out online, but check your local stores and department store websites.  Click to view the official press release.

is a nice color but there is a point I don't like about this finish I Own Sheer plum. They don't last long

Lustre is a formula that fades quickly. On the plus side, it all fades at the same rate and you're not left with a ring around the lip ;) I'm SO paranoid about that when I'm out!

Ooh this looks a beautiful colour. I've not been looking at the mac releases so as not to be tempted but I wish I'd seen this x

I failed to get this, too. I didn't realize Nordstrom wouldn't carry it and missed the online sale!

Sarah - Nordies said that on their release that this collection is exclusive to MAC stores, MAC online, and select Nordstrom. Select meaning high volume like King of Prussia. I think your best bet is to call a MAC store or Pro store (I believe KOP in Philly also has both, if that helps your search). I hope you can get it!
