Review- M.A.C Highlight Powder Cipria Illuminate and Flat Out Fabulous Lipstick

/ August 18, 2015

So I broke my record! I thought I would never buy any M.A.C product as I found it so unnecessarily costly. Until one fine day……. I saw this lipstick shade Flat Out Fabulous on internet , I couldn’t resist the temptation of getting myself one. That was when I didn’t discover its dupe yet. Ughh Will share the dupe with you guys.

I won’t talk about the lipstick much because you will find plenty of reviews on this range everywhere. Just that I love it , love the color,the staying power and texture. <3 Check out the swatch here.

Next I bought was this M.A.C Highlight Powder Cipria Illuminate. I have seen people raving about M.A.C highlighters but none mentioned this. When I saw this at their store, with no second thoughts I decided to get it. There is something in me that feels the urge of getting those items not bought by others much 😛 I know it’s weird but I like trying out “uncommon’ products as most of the time I found some really awesome underrated stuff.

M.A.C Flat out fabulous lipstick

This powder has two shades, a pink with silver overspray as you see in the picture. The design looks so beautiful and I love the silvers in it. At first I thought it will be too overwhelming on the cheeks once applied. The sales lady told me this can be used as a face powder and I was wondering if she was in her right sense. How can I have silver all over my face.

The product looks like any other normal powder with a very little amount of shimmer on the skin. EXCUSE MY HAIRY ARMS 😛

At first I just used this as highlighter carefully layering the product just above my blush until one day I decided to apply it all over my face and see if the sales lady was right. I applied and to be honest I really liked the result because I am so much into shimmers and glitter. Believe me, my face didn’t look glittery at all.

When using the pink base alone and base + overspray together, it didn’t really make a lot of difference. The silver in this powder gives the exact glow I needed for my beauty 😛 It is a perfect overall powder for me not highlighter.

Will I purchase this again?

No 😛 only because it is costly . Bought it for AED 145

Would I recommend?

Definitely Yes, if you can afford.

Thank you for reading:)
