Flamingo & Party Parrot - Iris Apfel for MAC

MAC seem to be pumping out the collections lately, but this is one I had my eye on from the start. My favourite YouTube ladies Allison (Amarixe) and Ingrid (MissGlamorazzi) had managed to snaffle some gorgeous pieces from the Iris Apfel collection, and I knew what I wanted before the prodz hit Australia.
Party Parrot (bright red-pink) seemed like it would be an excellent bright to add to my collection, while Flamingo (light milky bright coral) would make a lovely pink to swoon over.
Matte formula, my first from MAC.

Flamingo and Party Parrot
Flamingo in top and Party Parrot below, I really like the matte effect of Party Parrot though I was a little worried when I ordered it. I've tried it on and don't find it to be drying, but haven't had a proper go at it so expect a FOTD soon.
I compared the two next to MAC's Ever Hip to compare, you'll see that Ever Hip (last swatch) is much peachier than Flamingo which I'm really happy about. Have been obsessed with pink lips lately, Flamingo is a winner.

Did you pick up anything from the Iris Apfel collection?
What are your favourite MAC shades? I have a voucher to spend and unsure what to choose!

  1. I wasn't really interested in any of these when the press releases first came out, or even after seeing them in store. It wasn't until much later that I decided that Flamingo would be awesome to have, and of course by then it was too late. Ah, well. Enjoy your lipsticks ;)

    1. I always do this with MAC lipsticks, the releases just fly by and don't leave much time to mull over choices! I knew which I was going to order and was overseas and just risked it, turned out well :D x

  4. Aaah sometimes I just wish that I had a MAC Cosmetics around the corner :D
    I love the lipsticks you picked up... especially the Flamingo one :)
    I only own eye shadows by MAC so I can´t say anything about their lipsticks :)

    1. No! The closer they are the more money you blow, haha. I have quite a few and am loving them, I do love their shadows too though. Need to pick up more and a Z palette to put them in!

  5. I'm sad I didn't pick up any of the Iris Apfel lipsticks. :( I want them all now! Flamingo definitely is my fave. I did pick up Watch Me Simmer from the Shop MAC, Cook MAC collection that has just came out recently though, and I might pop up a post about it soon. :) x

    1. They truly are stunning, I was very impressed with them. I had my eye on Watch Me Simmer but thought I would be a good girl, will probably end up regretting that. Do post on it, would love to see!
