Variegated lipstick plant flowers! ?

My variegated Lipstick Plant (Aeschynanthus lobbianus variegated) is flowering! The red petals in the middle really do remind me of a thing of lipstick that’s slowly being squeezed out of its tube. It took a while before the red part showed up. I took these pictures over a span of a month or so.

The plant itself has lost most of its variegation because it’s not getting any direct sunlight. But since it’s flowering it must be doing okay.
