If there was only a single lipstick from MAC that I could recommend it would probably be the MAC Retro Matte lipstick in Flat Out Fabulous [I'd be referring to it as FOF in this post], it's such a versatile shade, along with being matte. I'm sure many of you avoid it thinking it's too loud a shade to carry which is exactly what I thought before getting it for myself but boy was I wrong or what!?
So here in this post I'm showing you the four colors you can have if you buy this baby because it's not just one shade you'll be getting but more than that, it's all about how creative you can get and create your own colors by layering it over and under other lipstick shades. So far I've experimented and created three STUNNING shades, which I'm sharing here with you guys, there are probably a dozen more shades you can create with this color!
1. On its own:
FOFs such a beauty on it's own, even when you don't mix it with other shades, a perfect magenta color which stands out and literally beckons to you. The finish as I said is matte and thus doesn't seem over the top.

2. Over MAC lady danger:
Apply MAC Lady Danger; which is a bright orange-ish red matte color, all over the lips, blot with a tissue paper, then liberally apply FOF all over it, and tada!! an amazing blue-toned red is the result, very close to MAC Relentlessly Red infact almost the same in my opinion.

3. Under MAC Embrace Me / MAC Candy Yum Yum:
Apply FOF all over the lips, blot and apply MAC Candy Yum Yum or if you have MAC Embrace Me from the Fashion Sets Collection, you can use that to fill in the middle part so your lips get an ombre-d effect. The result is a saturated neon-ish magenta shade which is simply stunning to behold.

4. Over Wet n Wild Sugar Plum Fairy/ MAC Rebel:
Apply MAC Rebel or Wet n Wild Sugar Plum Fairy [as I have done in the picture below] all over the lips, blot your lips with a tissue then fill in with FOF especially focusing on the center. This was my most complimented upon shade.
