MAC Cosmo Lipstick

What's in a name? Back in my hometown, we have a helper we call 'Set', but her real name is 'Sexy'. True story, okay. Thing is, people from the villages give English names to their kids without knowing what they mean. Names like: Latrine, Virgin, Salty Queen, Shining, Tasty, Fertility, Experience....it's as if they see a word in some random thing, smile at the child they're breastfeeding and think- "You are a 'Goodbye'."
I wouldn't be surprised if there's some villager out there named 'Cosmo'. Why not? It's a nice word which attracted me to MAC Cosmo in the first place. I had no idea what the shade was like, but I always knew I was gonna get it someday. That's what's in a name. I hear Cosmo, I think Cosmopolitan (the cocktail) & Sex And The City (Oh, I'm sure there's someone named City too.) 
MAC lipstick Cosmo - described as 'Pink Coco'. Finish is Amplified Creme, which is really creamy & moisturizing. This, I think, is a must-have shade if you're into pinky-peach shades. It's a nice everyday shade and goes with both neutral & smokey eyes. It stays on pretty well, and turns matte-ish when it starts to wear off.

It is pinker than Maybelline Color Sensational My Mahogany. It is closer to, but still pinker than, Revlon Colorburst Rosy Nude.

I think MAC Cosmo lives up to it's name. It would be my choice if I had to pick one MAC lipstick to gift to any woman.

Price ~ Rs.990. But I got it free- somewhat. To those who do not know this already, you can take 6 empty MAC containers to MAC & they'll give you one lipstick from the permanent line in return. If only The Body Shop did that too!

My Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥4.8/5

So, what do you think of MAC Cosmo?

P.S. Done tutorial for the black smokey eyes, will post it asap! It's the same as the one I wore here

  8. I've always wanted Cosmo but I thought it would turn muddy on my pigmented lips. It looks very pretty on you though. Have you tried Angel? It's my favorite pink lippie from MAC. :D

    And BTW.. there was an article in a malayalam newspaper supplement about a guy who named his kid.. ShittyMol ..!!!! without knowing the meaning..it might have sounded cute to them or something.. YIKESSS!!!!! ;p ;p it was actually lakshmi.. but it seemed to much of an "old" name.. so they replaced it with ShittyMol

  31. Just ordered this tonight, thanks to you! It will be my first Mac lipstick. I wanted Angel at first but I wanted a deeper color. This reminds me of Angel's grown up, sexier sister or something. It's that perfect pinky nude but it's super pigmented and gorgeous. I'm mega-excited to wear it and see how it looks against my pinky-porcelain skin. :)

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
