MAC Cosmo Lipstick - Review, Photos & Swatches

"Pink Coco" is how MAC describes this Amplified Creme Lipstick in Cosmo ($15). The color is a mid tone pink with subtle hints of brown, perfect for every complexion and extremely easy to wear.

Amplified Creme is one of MAC's more moisturizing finishes. There's a perfect mix of moisture and pigment in there that does not dry out lips, unlike the Lustres. Cosmo has a semi-matte, creamy finish that works alone or under a sheer gloss. The color is very buildable so you can wear it like a light wash or a full coverage, cream lipstick. I like to use a nude lip liner with such finishes as it tends to feather quite a bit. The staying power is about 3-4 hours, the highest I've gotten from any MAC lipstick.

MAC Cosmo Lipstick FOTD

Cosmo is such a beautiful, no fuss shade that goes with a ton of eye looks. You can tone it down with a smokey eye and wear it straight out of the tube with neutral eyes. Overall, Cosmo has two of the best things I look for in a lipstick - moisturizing formula and gorgeous color that I reach out to quite often. If you like wearable, neutral pinks in a comfortable, creamy formula at a good price point, Cosmo fits the bill!

Have you tried MAC Cosmo Lipstick?


  1. Nice girly shade..seems very close to syrup from mac?!i think:p

    1. Syrup has a slight mauve-y undertone, at least on my lips. But yeah, both are perfect for most Indian skintones :)

  2. Great choice of lipstick color!
