Product Review: MAC Cosmo Lipstick (Amplified Creme)

MAC Cosmetics remain to be at the top list of my favorite brands. Despite the fact that I try not to, considering that it's very expensive, it provides me with a lot of reasons why I should save a few pretty pennies for it.

Much to my surprise, I never really liked MAC lipsticks before. It made my lips dry and I couldn't stand the taste of it then. I remember when my mom bought me the shades Brave and Skew, I barely used them. It was just for special occasions or when I want something "sosyal" to take out from my purse when I'm out clubbing. But really, it was all a bad experience.

But what made me change my mind and rethink on MAC lipsticks? As my knowledge grew about makeups (i'm not saying I know it all), I realized that I had to give it another chance. My friends who were crazy about them gave me reason enough to try so I did. Since then, I just loved it.

But why Cosmo of all lipsticks from MAC.

I remember when Sophie and Jheng raved about Cosmo and I think at that time Sophie lost her Cosmo lisptick during a shoot or a class. Since then, Cosmo was stored at the back of my mind as one lipstick that I should consider. But every time I look and swatch it during one of my many MAC visits, I can't seem to like it. It was such a blah color for me.

The addict in me finally gave in. Shoot me for being such a shopaholic but I bought Cosmo only out of nothing. No reason at all. Truth be told, it was months before I even used this for the first time. It was just sitting on my stash like a reject from school.

Boy oh boy was I wrong! :) I really really made a serious mistake not buying it sooner or calling it a blah. Cosmo is such an amazing color for my NC30-35 skin. The color has a pink-peach-taupe tone to it that I can't describe. Sometimes it looked peach or pink depending on the lighting. This shade glides on smoothly and its very pigmented.

Really, it's My-Lips-But-Better lipstick!

Enough talk, let the photos speak for itself. :)
