Mac Costa Chic Review

I bought my first Mac lipstick while I was in London, it was totally on a whim. I didn't go in with any idea of which lipstick I wanted, all I knew is that I wanted a corally colour.

I swatched and I swatched, and in the end I went for Costa Chic. Don't get me wrong it's a gorgeous colour - exactly what I was after, the only thing is, I didn't realise it was a frost finish. But more on that later...




First things first, £15 is quite a lot for a not quite high end brand, but you can definitely tell it's worth £15. The actual bullet is really sturdy unlike some other lipsticks I have. *Cough - ELF - Cough* This lipstick also has a really nice scent - a subtle vanilla, which is lovely as it's not at all overpowering or synthetic smelling.




The shade is a corally pink that looks really bright on my skin tone, which is something I love! And despite being a frost finish, it's still quite moisturising. The texture is quite creamy and I find this doesn't cling to any dry patches on my lips or make my lips any drier.


I find this lipstick lasts for a good few hours without needing to be reapplied, and I find it doesn't really transfer at all. When this does start fading, it leaves a nice pinky stain which with some lip balm on top, looks lovely.


My solution to the whole shimmery lips problem, is as simple as blotting the lipstick after I've applied it. Although, the more I've worn this, the more I've come to love it and its shimmery goodness.

So overall, I'd definitely recommend this lipstick if you can get over the whole frost finish situation! Mac - please release this lipstick minus the shimmer!

Have you tried Costa Chic?

  5. It's such a beautiful color, and looks lovely on you. I agree. They need to come with a similar color, but in a matte finish. It'd look absolutely gorgeous!
