REVIEW // MAC Costa Chic Lipstick ♥


Hello lovelies I am here today with yet another lipstick, god I seriously don't know whats wrong with me at the moment lipstick obsessed. As we are now in spring and summer is that little bit closer I decided to treat myself to a summery lipstick (thats a good excuse right). I went for MAC's Costa Chic. 


Costa Chic is a gorgeously vibrant coral colour. It is one of MAC's frosted lipsticks which I must admit frightened me a little at first as I had images of looking like an 80's throwback but alas, the frosting is super subtle and in fact quite unnoticeable when the lipstick is applied lightly. I have found the best way to apply this is to pop a single layer straight from the bullet to the lips and work it in with my fingers. 


Costa Chic is wonderfully pigmented so one swipe is more than enough for a bright, even application. It glides effortlessly on to the lips. On first application it feels really moisturising, however after a few hours wear it can begin to feel quite drying, but fear not a little lip balm fixes this no problemooo. I have found the wear time to be around 4 or so hours however it does leave a coral tint to the lips. I don't really feel the need to constantly keep reapplying this lipstick because of the fact is does leave a tint to the lips. As I mentioned above, when it does begin to wear off pop a little balm or coral gloss on to the lips for an instant revamp. 


Costa Chic is such a perfect summer shade, it instantly brightens up your face. I think this lipstick is an all rounder when it comes to skin tones, as I have said before I am very pale and it still looks nice on me so I can only imagine how it would look on darker skin tones!! 

As Costa Chic is such a vibrant colour I think it would work best with neutral eye make-up, it would also look gorgeous with a simple winged liner. 

I hope you have enjoyed my post. Do you own Costa Chic?! My next MAC lipstick purchase will have to be Coral Bliss I think. Please leave me your comments below or you can tweet me over at @Tiffsbeautyboxx. Thank you for reading. 

Lots of love xxx
