REVIEW & LOTD: MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick in Cosmo

Cosmopolitan (Cosmo in short) has always been a favorite of mine... the cocktail? yes! the magazine? oh yes! the MAC lippy? Well lets see :P Oh yes this post is dedicated to reviewing the ever-popular MAC Cosmo, which is an Amplified Creme lipstick and has a cult following in India especially in the blogging world :) Well yes the obsession is because it is a yummy brown-pink that suits most skintones!
So when I came across all this hullabaloo about this lippy, the curiosity got the better of me and I went ahead and bought it :) While purchasing it, the SA actually beamed at me as if to say "good choice girlie! better late than never"... hahahaha... But you know what the funny thing is? Cosmo never caught my eye whenever I went to buy MAC lipsticks earlier. I noticed it just because it was so raved about on the blogosphere... If I hadn't ever read about it then most probably I would have never bought it... But then that's just me :P
I am not saying that it is a bad lipstick, it is actually a very good one and very flattering to a lot of skin tones, its creamy, it smells yum and above all it is MAC but what I am trying to say is that it isn't a show stopper. It is a perfect pinkish-nude for medium skin tones... very subtle and subdued... I personally rarely use it cause I tend to tan easily and when tanned, it ends up looking really pale on me... Plus I have a tough time deciding my eye make-up that pairs well with Cosmo... But if you are on the fairer side, then you surely got yourself a HG lipstick. It is HG material no doubting it :)
The quality of this range of lipsticks (amplified creme) is just sooooo smooth. It feels so light and so buttery on my lips.... And the signature choco-vanilla flavor of all MAC lippies is just so tempting :)

The Ever Popular MAC Cosmo
It's an Amplified Creme! Yay!
This is how it looks on my lips.
Ooohhss and Aahhhss!
1. Very versatile color and it suits a range of skin-tones.
2. Amplified creme lipsticks feel very buttery and smooth on the lips. They are very comfortable to wear.
3. It's an opaque shade and hence gives good coverage.
4. The lipstick has a choco-vanilla flavor, which is signature to MAC lippies
1. The shade makes me look a tad pale/washed out
2. It's expensive!
3. It doesn't stay on me for long :( max 2-3 hours without eating or drinking!
The cost ranges between 900/- to 990/-
Yes to other shades from this range :)
Would I recommend it?
Honestly? Well it's a nice shade to have and if you are on the fairer side or like neutral shades then purchase it blindly :P But if you prefer brighter shades or are on the duskier side then I would recommend you to first try it on your lips and then decide to purchase or not!
Overall Rating
If it reminds you of Maybelline Colorsensational in Warm Me Up, then let me tell you that if you mix a bit of Pink into Warm Me Up then you do get MAC Cosmo :)


  1. It looks so pretty on you! But it looks brownish on me! :| I though we were the same skintone. My camera washes it out but normally it looks more brown on me!:P

  2. i hate how it looks on me :( but it looks so gorgeous on you!!!! Love it! hahahahah.. we could start a mutual admiration society here :P LOL!

  3. lol I think the picture is washing it out more than you think!:P and I felt you could do any eye makeup with Cosmo. So easy it is to wear!!!:P What you did is looking really nice!!:D

  4. Honestly, even I didn't like this much. I tried it at the store. It's kinda meh, nice, but then if I'm paying 900 bucks, I didn't feel it was worth it. There are more interesting shades at MAC worth trying :P

  5. Exactly why I didnt get it- it looks so aweosme on Rati and ikku- looks more pink on you... an dit totally washed me out- made me look a bit Ill.. so I skipped this... :((

REVIEW: Johnson's Baby Lotion on Adult Skin

I am itching to do some makeup EOTDs and LOTDs since a while now but with guests at home I am not getting any time... So for a while you guys are stuck with me doing reviews. Not that my reviews do not need much efforts but as compared to EOTDs and LOTDs, reviews are a little bit less demanding where time constraints are concerned... Don't you agree? :) Today I shall be reviewing the Johnson's baby lotion and before you raise your eye brows and say to yourself "WTF" let me make it absolutely clear that I bought it when I was out of a moisturiser and needed one pronto! This was the only one available and so I just bought it. I figured if it was good for babies, how could it be bad for me? The truth? Read on ;) Johnson's Baby Lotion is Clinically proven to be mild and mild it sure is. It has a soft and soothing fragrance, which I love. Once applied it gets absorbed really fast and does not leave a residual oiliness or greasiness. It would be perfect for normal

Changes in my Skincare and Fitness Perspective Post 30

Changes in my Skincare and Fitness Perspective Post 30 #Adulting One early morning while I was sipping an exceptionally strong cup of coffee and introspecting I identified a few lifestyle changes that I had incorporated in the past year or so. On further retrospection I realised that these changes were a part of what I perceived would be good for me in the long run... When did I start thinking about my health in the future? When did I start worrying about how my skin would be 10 years down the line? OMG was I #Adulting? Is this even the correct usage of the latest hashtag?

Makeup Class: Difference Between A Bronzer, A Highlighter, An Illuminator & A Brightener

  Bronzer Vs Highlighter Vs Illuminator Vs Brightener  Very often than not being a beauty blogger I come across the terms Bronzer, Highlighter, Brightener and Illuminator at least a dozen times a day. These terms are everywhere and people use them in their daily conversation with so much confidence that you'd be surprised at how wrong many of them are in their usages. Oh! Yes even I have made mistakes in the past about their connotations and today armed with research, experiments and well just plain analysis I have reached a consensus where I can now confidently put forth the results of my hard work... Yes, today ladies and gentlemen, I shall be clearing all the confusion that prevails behind Bronzers, Highlighters, Illuminators and Brighteners!
