MAC for Iris Apfel Lipsticks Review & Swatches

I received my MAC for Iris Apfel order last week. I got four of the limited edition lipstick shades… Flamingo, Party Parrot, Pink Pigeon, and Scarlet Ibis.


MAC Flamingo Lipstick:

Flamingo is a soft pink-based coral with a lustre finish. So pretty! I don’t think I have anything like it, so I’ve been reaching for this one a lot since I got it. Definitely a must-have shade!

MAC Party Parrot Lipstick:

Party Parrot is a bright red-pink with a matte finish. I also got Impassioned and Fusion Pink with this haul, and while they look similar to Party Parrot, I think they’re different enough.

MAC Pink Pigeon Lipstick:

Pink Pigeon is a bright fuchsia pink with a matte finish. It’s the brightest and boldest out of the group. Not for the faint of heart! I LOVE IT!

MAC Scarlet Ibis Lipstick:

Scarlet Ibis is a bright orange-red with a matte finish. I rarely buy red lipsticks, but there is something special about this one. So sexy!

Overall, I think these lipsticks look AH-MA-ZING! My favorites are Flamingo (for everyday wear) and Pigeon Pink (for when I want drama on my lips). These are all really nice and opaque. They are long wearing without being drying, but they do have a tendency to leave a bit of a stain (which I kinda like). They feel comfortable to wear, and they have a nice light vanilla scent which I love. I think these are definitely worth checking out.

What do you think of these lipsticks? Did any of these make your list? How and where would you wear them?

Where to buy: MAC stores and online.

  1. Wah!! I was so sad that I skipped this collection. It was only after it released did I actually pay attention to the colours.. but it's all sold out now 🙁 BOO!! Any dupes for Flamingo and Party Parrot??

  2. @Miss LV: Enjoy your Flamingo! 🙂

    @KingTaco: Flamingo is my newest favorite. 😀

    @liveinbeauty: Unfortunately, I can't think of a comparable dupe for Flamingo unless you have Ever Hip which I heard is similar. The closest shades I can think of for Party Parrot are Impassioned (permanent) and Fusion Pink (about to be discontinued). Hope that helps! 🙂

  3. I'm SO jealous that you got Pink Pigeon, it was sold out before my friend was able to CP it for me! If it's at all possible, I would loooove it if you could do a comparison between Impassioned, Fusion Pink and Party Parrot :3 *bats eyelashes*

  4. I really wanted Party Parrot but they sold out before I got to it. Managed to snag flamingo and pink pigeon. I love flamingo. Though I wish it's finish was different…
    nice swatches

  5. @CocoMeChanel: Party Parrot is a great shade, but you can probably get Impassioned, which is very similar (but a different finish). I agree on Flamingo. I think I'd be happier if it was an Amplified Creme finish. Pink Pigeon is pure love.
