Got this lipstick delivered today as I'd always wanted to buy it and remained undetered from the hit and missy reviews! And I've got to say..... I was SUPER surprised! It's almost 'neon'!! So so bright. I wasn't expecting too much as a lot of people have said it doesn't suit them so I put it on nervously in the mirror while hoping for the best. I have to say, this is pretty stunning! It's a frost, it's not drying at all and has good pigmentation. This is a coral colour, in terms of similarity to Crosswires (I know people tend to compare them two) they are certainly not similar enough to buy one or the other, there's definitely a big difference between them both. Costa Chic being pinkier and a lot lighter, and Crosswires having a much stronger tint of red as well as being a cremesheen. Costa Chic also has almost 'gold' sparkles to it, it isn't extremely pigmented but it's still a great coral colour for your collection that I'd recommend buying. Also, the only thing I'd recommend doing before applying is conditioning your lips because if they are pretty dry the lipstick will definitely show the cracks off - not too flattering! :) X
I have noticed that this lipstick is not as drying as some of the others mac has released. I have very light skin and I wear it without bronzer or a tan. It's a bold look, but with a simple eye, it looks great! It lasts about a 1/2 hour before needing to be reapplied and it does not do well when paired with gloss as it seperates.
This colour shows orangey coral on my skintone (Chanel pro-lumiere no 20 clair). I'm fair skinned but this is a really flattering warm toned colour and looks good if I bronze up. It will look fantastic in Summer with a bit of golden glow.
Girls if you have tanned skin this colour is for you. I usually wear nude colours but when I saw this at the mac counter it caught my eye. I tried it on and it just brigtened up my face so nice. For reference i'm nc35 with warm golden undertones to my skin and I have black hair. This is an amazing summer lipstick to wear with bronzed skin.
Almost neon, so by itself is hard to pull off most days, but as a base, it makes everything pop. Mixed, It makes all your old lipstick (reds, pinks, corals, etc.) gorgeous and show stopping; new colors like you have never seen before. I simply love it. And, I plan to use it every day this summer as a base.
i love this lipstick! im more of a nude lip kinda girl but this colour is to die for. i team it with super long lashes, brozy skin and neutral eyes. one of my fave lippies at the mo.
