Review: MAC Costa Chic Lipstick


Hello everyone!

I thought i would do a little series of reviews and swatches of the MAC Lipsticks that i own! Someone requested i did a post on MAC 'Angel' which i dont actually own, but will buy at somepoint so i can review it for you!

Today i am reviewing MAC Costa Chic lipstick, I received this quite a while ago from my good friend Charlotte as she didnt really get on with it! 
It has a frost finish which may be too frosty for some, and i find that it can be a little too hard to pull off but with a light hand it gives a lovely colour to the lips, it looks wonderful with tanned skin as it is a orange toned coral. 
Swatches
MAC Costa Chic is available from MAC Cosmetics and retails for £13.50.

What are your thoughts on orange toned lipsticks? Yay or Nay?

Big thumbs up from me!

  8. It looks like an amazing colour, but I really don't think orange lipsticks would suit me. I should try it though, I might be pleasantly surprised! :)

  9. I love orange lips! They are much popular here in Japan, and I've been looking for a good beige/orange lippy - Costa Chic probably isn't what I'm looking for but it's very pretty :) Is it true they don't display Costa Chic in store? :S

  10. I have been admiring this shade from afar for quite some time. These swatches are making me err on the side of 'sod it, just go buy it!' It is lovely! xx

  12. This is definitely a must have. Found this flatters paler skin tones as opposed to mine, I've tried this amd I looked just plain weird with it on :S Although I do love orange tone lipsticks, this sadly isn't the one for me :( xo

  15. I don't own this shade but you may have swayed me. I think the tone isn't too orangey but also isn't to coraly either...a nice mix xx

  23. I always pick this up when I'm in MAC but am always a bit scared of how bright it is in the tube! I just don't think I could carry it off with my nw10-15 skin tone!

  26. Thank you for sharing these photos of both the lipstick in the tube and on the lips. Sometimes I get so overwhelmed at the MAC counter and it's no nice to be able to see how the color looks on a specific skin tone before going shopping :)

  28. I do love this colour and Vegas Volt, I find VV works better with a tan though, I have to say I've only used it once in the 3 months I've owned it, that's bad isn't it! xx
