Costa Chic | New Mac Lipstick

I've been wanting to blog about my new lipstick for days now but haven't been able to get any decent pictures of it - I've been trying every single day for about a week but there's just no daylight. I've never noticed lighting before as much as I do now that I blog and try to take product pictures! In December it never really does get properly light at all throughout the day, but by half 3 in the afternoon if you've not taken your snaps yet then you can wave goodbye to the chance of posting on that day! Damn winter and it's early dark nights!! But I can't hold off any longer and I am going to make the best of what I have got, so here we go:
A couple of weeks ago I was a very lucky girl and I won Becca's 100 follower giveaway over at Becca Talks Beauty (go and follow - link!!) and her prize was any Mac lipstick of your choice, so I chose 'Costa Chic' after having it on my wish list for months and months!! When it arrived I could not have been happier with my chosen shade and thank you very much Becca for running this giveaway and allowing me to find a new lipstick love!
Costa Chic is a frosted finish lipstick and at first looks a very light coral shade but comes out quite differently once swatched and on the lips and is in fact a lot brighter and bolder than expected and it also a lot more on the pink side too. Bright corals are classically a shade for summer, but I'm going against the grain and wearing this now because I love it so much. I tend to stick to bright pinky/purple shades so wasn't sure at all if this would suit me when I saw how pale it looked, but it really is beautiful and I love how the vibrant colour instantly perks up my face!


  1. Wow well done for winning the giveaway, what a gorgeous colour. I know what you mean about lighting, it drives me absolutely INSANE!

  2. Costa Chic has been on my want list for ages, I'd definitely like to have it for next summer. I haaate the lighting at the mo too, it means you have to plan way more if you want to have regular posts xx

  3. I'm actually wearing this shade right now! It looks a like pale pastel orange on me.
