MAC Cosmo Lipstick Swatches, Review + Why i L.O.V.E it !

in A+, Lipsticks, MAC

MAC Cosmo Lipstick is my favourite MAC lipstick from all those iv tried. Two reasons- one it is a ‘my lips but better ‘ lipstick and is one of those brown pink lipsticks that look great on indian skintones. Two, is because of a little incident that i shall describe later. For now, enjoy the gorgeousness that is cosmo…really girls, if i had to pick a lipstick from MAC that would flatter all indian skin tones – it would be  this one.

MAC Cosmo is an amplified cream lipstick  – which is one of my favourite finishes in MAC lipsticks. They are super creamy to apply and just a little bit on your lips spreads them out to cover your lips in a nice rosey color. 

Cosmo is a  warm rosey pink  with peachy brown undertones and looks stunning on warm and darker skintones . Very natural and soft. It will look just as stunning on cooler and lighter tones as well- its one of those universally flattering colors that are hard to get a hold of. When i dont know what lipstick i wanna wear, i reach for cosmo. Definitely my favourite lipstick from all those that iv tried from MAC so far.

So the second reason i like this lipstick is because on a particular date with ‘the boy’, he was mentioning how he hated girls with too much makeup. He said something to the tune of 

“Ugh, i hate girls who put on too much makeup. I mean  how do guys kiss girls with all that gloop on their lips. I’m so happy yr not the kinds who wears lipsticks on your lips- like even right now on a date, you havent slathered on lipstick”..

Umm..cough cough, i had actually slathered on cosmo but i smiled sweetly , batted my lashes and said ‘Ofcourse sweetie, i know what you mean  totally’…

Overall Verdict: A+ (The first 5/5 on P&B)

Price: Rs 990/-

Will i Repurchase: Yes. Yes. Yes.

Recommendation: Adore this colour. If yr confused about which lipstick to buy from MAC. Close your eyes and get this one. It is flattering for everyone!

I am going to India this summer and have been making a list of what to pick up at MAC. I mean, I can get it here but it will be fun to pick up some things there! Putting this on my list!

My friends and I were just talking about this yesterday. How does it compare to Mehr?

And I love what "the boy" said. So cute!


PnB January 30, 2011 at 4:09 pm

@ALLF- yes gloop- bad. Natural- good !

@chic geek- haha…yes but be prepared , a lot of these popular ones are sold out!!!

@Zainab- Yknow, when swatched on skin..they look very similar but on lips mehr is like a true pink – matte and Pink! While cosmo is a pink with a bit of brown in it and em both equally, but cosmo is my everyday lipstick, and mehr is my 'pink' lipstick


PnB January 30, 2011 at 4:11 pm

@zainab- and yes,the boy is very cute when he says such things! lol Not so cute when he says things like ' But why do u wanna buy that skirt- Do you need it? I mean, you may want it, but buy it only if u NEED it' .Ufff,!

Mehak. It looks GORGEOUS, but can you PLEASE do a daylight swatch without flash?


Indu April 15, 2012 at 1:32 pm

I mean it looks awesome and all, but I’d just love to see hoe it looks in daylight. Only if it’s not too much trouble, though. What with the wedding coming up and all :P


mehak April 15, 2012 at 3:37 pm

Hi the mUA used Cosmo on me – you can check it out-
This is with flash too though…ill try and get you a swatch without flash.


Indu April 15, 2012 at 8:29 pm

THAT was such a fast reply, Mehak. Another reason why PnB is my favourite! :D
Thank you! :)
