New Lipstick Love... Costa Chic

I finally did it! I’m now the proud owner of MAC Costa Chic Lipstick. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve nearly bought it. I’ve gone with the intension of buying, but somehow end up being talked into something else.
Costa Chic is one of MAC’s best selling lipsticks and has a frost finish. It’s described as a light coral, but I’d say it’s more of a bright coral with gorgeous pink tones – the kind of shade that looks great in the summer , especially with a tan. Don’t be fooled by the bullet! It looks very orangey on the counter (and in these pictures!) but in reality it’s much softer and the pink tones do shine through.

For a frost finish I wouldn’t say it’s especially “frosty”, but does have a slight shimmer/glimmer to it and it isn’t as moisturising as the cremesheen or amplified finish lipsticks. The colour payoff is excellent, just a quick swipe and my lips were covered. I quite like to dab this one on for a more natural look and it lasts hours! I teamed it with MAC's Margin blush, a bronzey peach, also with a frost finish.

It’s very similar to MAC’s Ever Hip lipstick, a limited edition shade from last years’ FashionFlower collection. At least it looks that way in the bullet, but Ever Hip is lighter and much creamer. Costa Chic is much more of a true coral with a slight frostiness.

I’m definitely pleased I finally took the plunge on this one. It’s lined up to be my go-to-lippy for my summer holidays!
