For some reason New Zealand MAC stores are still carrying this color with their paints, which is awesome because I was going to have to shell out 30 bucks for it on ebay since the US MAC stores stopped carrying it a long time ago. This is a rich dark pinky red as it comes out of the tube, but sheers down really nicely to a bright red, and then to a coral-ish hot pink, and then to a coral. It is VERY easy to blend, much more so than lots of other paints, which is good since it is quite bright and mistakes would show quite easily. It is suprisingly wearable, and provides a great base for a lot of different colors. Great under browns, bronzes, coppers, peaches, corals and provides a lovely rich depth.
Does not give the "rabid bunny eye" look as long as you line your eyes with black liner.
If you have this color and Rubenesque PP you can mix them together for a good replica of Coral Crepe PP (which is the new LE paint pot with the Pret-a-Papier collection).
By the way, I actually prefer the paints in tubes rather than the paint pots as they stay WAY creamier and more hygienic for much much longer.

This is a gorgeous deep primary red color with a very tiny hint of shimmer to it, but when blended out, has more of a matte finish.
I've only used this as an eyeshadow base so far, but absolutely love it. Applied over top of UDPP and blended out smoothly with the red from either MAC's "Mi'Lady" or "Danger Zone" MES over top -GORGEOUS!! It really deepens the red tones and adds a heck of an oomph!
A little definitely goes a loooong way. I use a very little bit on my finger tip to blend across my lids and sometimes that even seems like too much.
I like how it doesn't crease, even after 8+ hours of wear, it doesn't crack or make my skin feel dry or stretched or anything like that. It's totally comfortable and dries quickly.
I use Neutrogena's Makeup Remover wipes for this and it wipes off sooo easily. No staining of my skin at all and doesn't irritate me in the least.
I'm not crazy about the packaging and I never feel like the lid is on all the way, but so far it's not dried out or even come close.
I bought my tube used from an online sale, so I can't comment on the retail price, but as it's MAC -you can bet it's expensive.
For the amount of product in the tube, I guess it's worth the $15 to $20 it must have cost.
If I ever thought I'd run out, I'd definitely grab another one.
If you're into reds, definitely grab one of these -such a gorgeous red shade.:)
Here I've got the red from MAC's "Danger Zone" MES over top of Flammable with "Beauty Marked" in the crease. So beautiful.:)
LOVE IT!!!! :D

Just wore flammable to the mac pre-release event. Looks gorgeous when paired with Bold & Brazen and Embark... Typically Embark looks more a muted plum and more brown... when you put flammble underneath it turns out more plum. Bold & Brazen on top of flammable ends up looking like expensive pink :). personally I didnt really know how to use flammable at first, but I decided to do something different and came out with beautiful results!. I hope they dont discontinue this or bare canvas

I bought this for a photoshoot that I was working on, and it ended up turning into a total disaster. Although a beautiful red wine color, this isn't for the faint of heart.
Many people are allergic to pure red pigment, including the model and myself. The model had to have ALL of her makeup taken off and be sprayed with Fix + to control the burning sensation. Several people are allergic to this type of color and although beautiful, I really would not take the chance. Only reason it got a 2 is because of how beautiful the color is.
First time I used this paint, even though I took it off immediately the area around my eyes felt chaffed and I couldn't wear makeup for a good week. If you have sensitive skin or you cannot handle red pigment on the skin, do not use this!!!

Shade Description: Intense red with red shimmer.
I donít reach for this often but when I doÖwow! Paired with Helium this seriously rocks! The number of compliments I have had when I wear this is brilliant because I rarely get people coming up to me to compliment my makeup but with this people really do take notice. So probably avoid it if you donít want to draw too much attention to yourself but if youíre feeling playful or daring go for it!
Itís probably worth mentioning that when it comes to removing this you do need a decent makeup remover (MAC Cleanse Off Oil is the best product Iíve come across for removing all traces of makeup or you could go for Sweet Almond Oil for a less expensive option/natural option).

can be tricky to use at first but i find this best as a base to eyeshadow rather than a shadow itself because its slightly difficult to get a nice blend from it because it dries quickly, which is a good thing.
its a great bright red and i havnt tried it on anything but eyes but imagine it would look splendid.
keeps colors from creasing as well. this is just a fun product in general to play with.

I love the vibrancy and colour pay off of this paint. Its nice to have something a little unusual in colour that I can wear regularly and get the 'wow look at your eyes' glances. Beauty Marked goes wonderfully with Flammable, and it can lend a nice unusual look to other shades - it can lend itself well to some unusaul combinations such as Steamy. The texture is really creamy and smooth, but I feel it can seem a tad oily on the lids until it has dried properly. Also, If you are relativley new to the whole makeup experimental thing, by all means buy it but be prepared to spend a day indoors perfecting the look.
Paint can also be used , well almost anywhere. It makes a beautiful temporary tattoo effect which I took advantage of for my last fancy dress outing. It can also be used as a blush but this is very hardcore red blush colour - I think very few people can carry it off as a blush. It also would make a beautiful lip colour, espiacilly with a bit of balm or gloss. Without this I found it quite uncomfortable and drying.
On the down side, it can be a pain to blend due to drying really quickly, so you need a highly blendable eyeshadow to do the job properly. Also, as other have noted the packaging is a pain in the royal behind. Once you have had time to get used to it, fine all well and good, but the first time I used it, I gave it a nice solid squeeze...eurgh felt like lady Macbeth. And this stuff does NOT come off without a fight. Good in some ways, ie a long night on the town but not when it comes to the dry cleaning bill.
I said yes for repurchasing, as I love the uniquness and vibrancy, but I cannot see myself needing to for a while. A little goes such a long way - I need barely any for a muted red look on my lids and only slightly more for an in your face red.

It took a little bit of getting used to because of the packaging. It's highly pigmented, and you only need a tiny amount. It comes in a tube, so at first it's easy to get too much product and smudge it to places you don't want it, which is a little bit of a pain because of the intense color.
It's all worth it though.
This is probably my HG when it comes to red eyeshadow. I haven't used it for other color combinations, which it what everyone raves about. I got it because I wanted a red eyeshadow, and a good one is hard to find.
It's a rich, blood red, almost teetering on burgundy. I like to use this with my "red" eyeshadows to fix them (ex: I've had two that were too coppery and so using the dark red of flammable with them made them a truer red. I also got a red eyeshadow from Hot Topic that looks awful when you blend it by itself, even if it is close to red, so using it with flammable helps.).
It's very pigmented and lasts pretty well. A tube lasts a pretty good while since such a small amount is needed.
And the SA told me it can be used for pretty much anywhere you want to apply it.

Fantastic product and colour! I was wary about gettng this as I thought it would look like I'd been crying as well as suffering from a lack of sleep but I was very wrong. It's very pigmented which is a very good thing. I must admit that it can be a pain to remove but the fantastic colour combinations that I've made with this make it all so worthwhile. It looks great with a wash of Helium Pigment over the topp and a bit of Sea Me shadestick to line and so so sexy with Beauty Marked. I have had compliments from many a male (who, in my experience, don't usually like women wearing a lot of makeup) on these combinations.

This paint is my forever buying product. I used to wear blush as a red shadow, for no company (except for online like bloody mary cosmetics and manic panic) made red eyeshadows. On top of the WONDERFUL shade, it lasts forever. I only have to apply it once a day, and it lasts alllllll day and night.
This is a must have for the punks/goths out there.

On me, DDD NW45 or HIP#818, flammable is a deep red-wine color. I wear over HIP e/s base and under my wine, deep pinks, violet, rust, or brick red pigments/shadows. Keeps my eye color in place w/o creasing. Eye color shades are more intense. Gorgeous. Just wish I had tried a long time ago.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Dry Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I bought this because the SA at the MAC counter told me it would be a great color on me.
She didnt, however, tell me how difficult it can be to work with when youre very new to e/s in general. So it sat at the bottom of my makeup bag for almost a year.
Since Ive discovered this site, I have poured over the reviews finding out how other people use their products and have learned so so much!
Someone earlier had suggested using Stars N Rockets e/s over Flammable..
and since I have both and use neither... I thought Id give it a try...
let me just say WOW, they were so so right. It is fantastic!
Theyll both be making an appearance on me much more often!

I find this paint to be a bit too dramatic to use on its own as a shadow. I have had luck blending this and Canton Candy together for a really pretty candy apple red shade. But my absolutely new favorite look is to apply a fairly heavy line of MAC Fluidline in Black Track along my upper lash line and then place a really thin line of flammable just above the black. It's almost a club look that works for day.
As for texture, I'm a paints addict. I've never had any problem with oozing (well once, but that was after opening a tube that had been shipped to me during the heat of summer), you barely squeeze the tube and everything is fine.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Oily, Olive Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I love everything about this product except for the tube. If you squeeze it too hard, too much comes out. I hate that. But it's a deep rich red I use on my lips for a matte look. Never thought to use it on my eyes.
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination Hair: Blond Eyes: Blue
Love this color though I think it is a little more on the pink side than the red side. Stays on long -- I like to put it on the outer corners and crease of my eyes. Put some cranberry e/s on top of that to smooth out the color, put some full flame e/s in the middle of the eyelid, vanilla e/s on the inner part and corner of the eye and blend it all well! Add some black liquid liner -- it's pretty dramatic but I wore it to a party and got lots of compliments.

I've been searching for a decent bright lasting red eyeshadow for AGES until I finally came across this. I put it on with a Qtip, over my black eyeliner and then a little under neath my eye. It looks so hot/FLAMMABLE! ;p I wore this on prom night an got nothing but compliments.
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Combination Hair: Other Eyes: Blue
I love this, on me it shows up a nice red, which I love. Yeah, I hate the packaging, but oh well, I have been looking for red eyeshadow for a while..this is perfect.Also, if you put flammable UNDER purple eyeshadows, it makes them look amazing. If you have stars N rockets eyeshadow and flammable paint, try it. You wont be dissapointed...AMAZING!!! love it
Age: 18 & Under Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Cool Hair: Brown, Wavy, Medium Eyes: Green
The packaging sucks, the price is a little bit high and Flammable can be a hard color to work with. But I love it. It can look more berry than true red at times, but this is one of the few Paints I'd repurchase. Flammable can be fun alone, assuming you're cool with red eye shadow, and it's one of the most versatile bases I've found. Flammable is unspeakably hot under gold eye shadow, and wonderful with purples and pinks. Awesome.
*EDITED* Subtracted one lippie because the texture could be a terrible pain. Still a one-of-a-kind product, but hardly perfect.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Acne-prone Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
Flammable is a little more difficult to blend than the two metallic paints I own, but it is a great base underneath dark pinks and purples. Like with any other MAC paint, A LITTLE GOES A LONG WAY. It helps give a lot of depth and punch to lighter colors.
The packaging is awful. I hate messing around with tubes and it took me awhile to get the hang of it. (I tended to squeeze too hard and wind up with a strip of paint down the side of it.)

I'm fairly conservative so I don't wear this as eyeshadow. However, I was finding that my Stila color convertible left my cheeks very oily and so I looked around for alternatives. As a blush, Flammable gives a beautiful rosy-red effect with very little product, that leaves no oily residue. I use so little at a time that I expect this product to last at least a year, if not longer. I usually dab a bit on the back of my hand, smear it, and then use my index finger to blend it into my cheeks over moisturizer. The staying power is amazing, and I find that it doesn't clump on my skin like powder or cream blushes do. My skin is oily, and Flammable lasts all day,even after I blot my face. Overall, a great product.
