Finally Mine! MAC's Party Parrot

These days I'm in a weird spot, I'm trying to get my life together. I'm trying to hunt down photographers to work with so I can build up my portfolio and *hopefully* get hired by someone! 

Besides that I'm also trying to build my makeup kit without breaking the bank, so obviously my private makeup stash has taken a back seat and I've been concentrating on using my finances for professional stuff. 

But a couple of weeks ago, I made an exception for MAC's Party Parrot. >v<
I missed this beautiful colour when the Iris Apfel collection came out and I've been waiting ever since! So when the Strength collection came out, I ran to MAC! 
I actually went on a Mumbai Darshan,  first to the Peddar Road MAC where it was sold out, the really nice MUA there called up Andheri for me and reserved a tube. So sweet! ♥
So then I ran to Andheri (with a disgruntled boyfriend in tow) and FINALLY got my Party Parrot. 
Woot Woot!

Anyway, crazy makeup misadventures aside, here's my review! :D

Rs 990 (Soon to/ already gone up. Damn you MAC! >.< Can't wait to get a PRO card!)

Nothing special, the usual black and silver bullet. 

Party Parrot is a pinky red shade, super vibrant! It has a nice warm undertone that brightens up my face. I've seen it look much more coral on some people, especially paler women. But on me it is definitely a crazy ass pink! I love it! I'm glad it looks different on me because if it had been coral-ish, I would have probably been pretty disappointed, considering I waited so long for it!
Even though it brightens up my face, I must say it makes my teeth look ever so slightly yellow. Nothing serious though. ^_^

If Lady Danger was my, "Come at me bruh" colour, Party Parrot is my, "Get down and party" colour for sure! It gives my mood an instant lift as soon as I put it on. 

Texture and Smell:
Like most of my MAC lipsticks, this one too is a matte shade. It is nice and creamy, not drying.
Smell is typical to all MAC lipsticks, vanilla! ^_^


One swipe, 3 swipes, BRIGHT colour! :D
Sorry about the harsh yellow light, the sun was really strong that day!

Nyx Fire is TOO red, Nyx Matte lipstick in Angel is close but lighter and cooler, Maybelline's Stay With Me Coral is also very close, maybe a pink lipliner under it would bring them closer(?), Wet n Wild's Hot Paris Pink is darker but since it is sheer it looks close enough. :P

In MAC, Impassioned is almost EXACTLY the same! Just that since Party Parrot is matte, it looks much more vibrant. I did want to get Impassioned at a point of time but now that I have Party Parrot, it ain't likely!

A great bright colour for summer, that really lifts your spirits and lasts a LONG time!
It lasted through noms and drinks, when I checked my mirror at the end of a long day, the lipstick was gone but the colour was still on, strong!
I have nothing bad to say about this lipstick, NOTHING! Mostly due to the fact that I've waited so long to get my hands on Party Parrot, I'm not going to ruin my excitement by nitpicking!

So, you my friends have been reading a very biased review! 

 Okay, not really, I can't do that to you!
It is a great lipstick, only complaints I have is that since it is a matte lipstick, you need to have well prepped lips. Secondly it makes your teeth a bit yellow. And lastly, LIMITED EDITION!!! Gah! 
How I hate those words. ;n; 
Oh well, hopefully they'll repromote it soon. But it gets sold out so fast! With reason, but still!!

Anyway, here's a FOTD I did with Party Parrot, yes it is that bright. Yellow light or not. :P

I would definitely buy this lipstick again, and I do urge people to try it when it comes out again!
I swear, as soon as I put it on this starts playing in my head:

Kyaaaa~ YAMAPI. >w<

Well, that's my review, hope I didn't ramble on too long! And I hope you enjoyed it. ^_^
Leave me your thoughts on Party Parrot (or Yamapi, I'm always ready to fangirl.)

And of course if you need a makeup artist, remember me! Lol!
And forgive my blatant self promotion, that I shall be doing in many posts to come.
Muahahaha! Really.

Thanks for reading!
