Review: MAC Costa Chic Lipstick

Hello petals :)

A while ago I purchased this beauty, as I'd missed out on Jazzed from the In The Groove collection, and I figured this was the next best thing!


MAC say: Colour plus texture for the lips. Stands out on the runway. Simmers on the street! What made MAC famous.

I say: I think I've finally sussed out the different finishes on the MAC lippies now and I know which ones work for me. I wasn't sure which finish Costa Chic was as it wasn't listed on the 'Frost' list when you select the finish on the website. When it arrived and said 'Frost' I thought it'd have a finish like Angel. It's nothing like the finish on Angel though, and it's a really beautiful colour and texture.


MAC say: Frosty light coral. Frost finish.

I say: I wouldn't really say that Costa Chic is frosty. I was kind of comparing it to Angel in a way as that is the other frost finish lippie that I own. But Costa Chic is beautiful and creamy and applies like a dream. A perfect, vibrant shade for the summer!

  3. I love Costa Chic :) When Jazzed was out I was torn between the two but went for Costa Chic as it was a little brighter. My only gripe is mine snapped off at the very bottom of the base a few days ago :/ never happened with a MAC lipstick before xx
