Oh hello there everyone! Long time no see. Without boring you with tons of details as to where I’ve been and why I haven’t blogged in over two weeks you can read all about it here if you fancy. The important thing, however, is that I am back to my regular blogging schedule and lots of exciting posts are coming your way very soon eep. Oh boy I missed this!! And what better way to be back than sharing a new lip favorite that I’ve been obsessing over for the past few weeks? Ladies and gentlemen, meet the ever-so-gorgeous MAC Costa Chic (here). There isn’t anything I love more that coral lipsticks in spring and this gem happens to be one of the most beautiful corals I’ve ever laid my eyes on. It’s a gorgeous super bright coral pink with a touch of golden shimmer and it just makes me happy.

Costa Chis is fun, vibrant and cheerful and basically the perfect companion for spring and summer. It is one of the brightest lippies in my collection but I find that it’s still perfect for both everyday wear and nights out. The reason I fell head over heels in love with this beauty is because of it’s skin brightening and complexion warming properties – so pretty. Costa Chic also makes me look tan and pairing it with black liner is a killer combo. As much as I adore the shade though, I am afraid it might not look particularly flattering on deeper skin tones as it’s a touch too bright.  

MAC Costa Chic has frost finish and this is the very reason why it took me so long to cave and pick one up. Usually I steer clear of frosts because I find they tend to look a bit dated and unflattering. Raise your hand if you remember those frosty lipsticks our grandmothers used to sport when we were little – not a cute look. Luckily though, Costa Chic has really fine frosty bits and has more of a satin finish, which I like. With this gem preparation is key and you need to treat your lips to a nice scrub prior to applying the lipstick, otherwise it will go patchy and will settle into fine lines, which we don’t want. Apart from that Costa Chic has beautiful creamy formula that feels comfortable on the lips and hangs around for 3-4 hours. The pigmentation is spot on and one swipe is all you need to get full blown color – fab. So my final verdict? If you are a fellow coral lip lover you need to go give this beaut a swatch and see how you like the finish. I don’t have doubts about the shade – I am sure you will fall in love with that one.

Have you tried MAC Costa Chic? Which is your favorite coral lipstick?

Lots of love,
Andrea

  22. I have been eying this little baby for a while now, and now I have to get it because that really is a perfect shade for spring. I feel like Crosswires would also be cute for spring, so I need to add these babies to my 'to buy' list!
