~My Top Lipstick this Spring/Summer 2015! Yes MAC Flat Out Fabulous~

Winters are long gone and the temperatures are already too high.
I wonder what the real summers would be like here in the capital city.It looks like Winters vanished,spring season skipped and summers are already here.I am talking about my favorite lipstick for spring & summers this year.It was my first MAC lipstick of the year 2015 making a whole 10 of my MAC collection.
It is Flat Out Fabulous from the New Retro Matte Collection.Its described as a bright plum matte.Its a fuchsia shade.
Retro matte is none other than some new lipsticks added into the same Matte line.Yes you can say they are super matte.
As you can see its more of a pink/purple shade,Its very dry in consistency.One can feel the dryness tug at the lips while applying.So one have to apply a lip balm before putting on this lipstick.Once you have applied it carefully lined with a pink lipliner it stays on your lips forever!
It doesn't transfer with food.But due to the usual habit of freshening up my lipstick after dinner I would also freshen this up no matter if its still there.Some habits die hard !
The packaging is same as all usual mac lipsticks.The signature black shiny bullet.The name and finish is printed at the bottom of the bullet.Its scent is also the same as the typical Mac lipsticks.A lovely light vanilla smell.
Here is a comparison swatch between Candy Yum Yum,Flat Out Fabulous & Girl About Town.
Candy Yum Yum is the bright pink whereas Flat out fabulous is the bright plum.Flat out fabulous is the matte version of Girl About Town which is of Amplified Creme version.
Mac has done a great job with this color as it is definitely a beauty in its own.
I have always got compliments whenever I have worn this one.
Sharing some photos of me and Flat Out Fabulous

So Girls what do you say?
Have you got a favorite for the season?
If you want to see how many MAC lipsticks I had 1 and half years ago check this post

The most Exhilararing moments

& the most Emotional Moments

Yes Fast & Furious 7 is not only a super speed cars movie it is woven with emotions inbetween.It has a super nostalgic end where actually Vin Diesal is saying Goodbye to Paul Walker and not Toretto saying Goodbye to Brian o conner!
The lyrics of the song "Its been a long day" makes the end more poignant and makes one teary eyed.
Overall a brilliant movie and a lovely tribute to the legend Paul Walker,I appreciate the efforts of The Arena Cinema and Constantine PR for coming up with this idea and arranging this grand event.It was an enjoyable and memorable evening.
Thanks once again for making me a part of the event.

~Tribute To The Legendary Paul Walker:A Grand Event put together by The Arena & Constantine PR~

ARENA being the only cinema till date in Pakistan which dedicated the priemere of "FAST AND FURIOUS-7" entirely to PAUL WALKER with collaboration of CONSTANTINE PR on Friday 3rd,April 2015.
Yes, they definitely did set the bar for others to follow!!

When you talk about speed it's not just about cars. It's a lot more than that, it's about PAUL WALKER! ARENA recognised the fact to this extent that they decided to celebrate "speed" in memory of the legendary "PAUL WALKER".
The priemere turned tribute to PAUL WALKER, who passed away in a car crash during a break from filming in November 2013. The man who dedicated his life to speed, died of speed. Thrill just not took his life but gave him life for which he will be remembered forever. Arena proved it here that he is special to us all and the world of speed is incomplete without him.
The film is written by Chris Morgan and directed by James Wan. It stars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Dwayne Johnson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Ludacris, Lucas Black and Jason Statham.
The cast and director came together in the aftermath of Walker's death. And the film is ultimate a tribute that will assist in continuing "the legacy for PAUL WALKER".
This movie is more than a movie. A movie which involves speed and emotions for the viewers and fans of "Fast and Furious-7" and "PAUL WALKER" for sure. You will feel it for yourself when you see it. Something emotional happens to you.
PAUL WALKER would be proud of ARENA, his fans and the final product FAST AND FURIOUS-7!!
The tribute to PAUL WALKER was a special event in many ways. Constantine PR proved it's mantra, unorthodox we are!! The fast and furious themed red carpet was one of it's kind. The models arrived in FNF themed cars wearing ARORA. The customised line designed by ARORA complimented the red carpet magnificently. The red carpet was hosted by Marvi Sarfaraz who is one of the finest in the industry.

The General Manager of Arena, Sajid Ilyas emphasised on heroic Paul walker saying, " Arena took the initiative to pay the tribute to Paul Walker on the priemere of Fast and Furious-7 as this movie is solely about Paul Walker, the emotions he has given to speed are mysteriously unforgettable."

The priemere was attended by socialites, bloggers and celebrities from Islamabad. Videographers, photographers and TV channels were present to cover the event. "LOL Studio"being one of them. Jaswal brothers were also present and appreciated the initiative which Arena took . Uzair Jaswal said " He is glad the way Arena re shaped the priemere which means our cinema industry is well aware and is definitely encouraging the society to think in different dimensions."

The event was a huge success and everyone enjoyed it thoroughly. Arena did set a milestone. Constantine PR did not disappoint the execution of the event. One of the sponsors to the event were "Shahtaj".
Arena sets an example for others to follow!!
Emotions and speed!! No one did it ever other than Arena!!
Arena got high standards!
Remembering Paul walker with Arena!!
