MAC Costa Chic.

Costa Chic is one of the best purchases I've made from MAC in a long time. I'll be the first to admit that I have quite a few lipsticks I've only worn once or twice, and I was afraid that Costa Chic was going to suffer the same fate. However, since adding it to my collection, I've been wearing it non-stop!




Costa Chic is a bright coral that despite it's frost finish, is only slightly frosty, in my opinion. It's a more refined frost finish, if you will ;)


I find that MAC's frost finish lasts longer on me than lustres and cremesheens, but it also doesn't dry out my lips like the matte finish does.

What's your favorite blue polish?
