MAC Cosmo Lipstick: Review + Swatch

So……. I wanted to try the Nicki Minaj Viva Glam Lipstick but it looked pretty ridiculous on my skin tone, so Cosmo did just the job I was looking for! 🙂 Cosmo is a light, almost baby pink lipstick of the amplified formulation and is just about as pale as I am comfortable going to on my lips.

Now, I have to be very careful when applying this. Since it is so light, it has a tendency to look a tad chalky if not blended well. I also like to apply a lip gloss of a similar shade to help smooth things out and add some shine. The formula, as you can see in the swatch, is very opaque and transfers well to the skin.

Because of the lightness of the pigments, I’m sure, the lasting power is not as great as deeper shades of this same formulation but is satisfactory nonetheless.

MAC lipsticks are sold for $15 wherever MAC Cosmetics are sold.
