Costa Chic and Impassioned Mac Lipstick Review


That’s it I’m in love with the Mac lipstick range. I can’t get enough so obviously I brought two more…

The first shade Costa Chic in the finish Frost is an oldie but goodie. Although this is not my favourite finish the shade won me over.  This perfect peachy coral would be amazing on holiday or casual day-to-day wear.  It complements a tan and pale skin. However as I mentioned before, the frost finish does not do it for me. It does what it on the tin and leaves the lips looking frosty and beautiful but at what price. On my supper dry and chapped lips it leaves them even dryer. If I don’t apply a generous layer of balm first the product can become bitty and fade fast. I guarantee this will not be the same for everyone but it’s only fair to warn those with dry lips at prep work is needed with this finish.


The second shade I went for was a super pink fuchsia Impassioned in the finish Amplified from the permanent colour range. This shade is super, loud, super pink and thus far my favourite shade. It’s another perfect for summer and will also complement every skin tone. Although I am beyond in love with this lipstick please note that it is bright, very bright so if you like your pink lipstick but don’t want to stand out too much I would recommend trying it on first.



Although it’s always good to try products on before purchasing when looking at bright lipsticks I believe the right bright suits every girl no matter what shade the skin, eyes or hair.  Don’t be scared to try a bright shade and stand out from the crowd. You’ll look amazing I promise!!

Both these products retail at £14.00 each and you can find them at a MAC counter or click here to view there website.
