I am a lover of all things MAC! Like seriously lol but I give honest reviews on all products. Flat out fabulous is probably my favorite dark pink lip that I own. It's a super rich matte texture so it CAN BE drying to your lips. But with beauty comes pain lol so I recommend using a lip balm or moisturizer before applying. My favorite lip liners to use this with are MACs magenta , Vino, or night moth...and sometimes all three!
