Product Review: MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick in Cosmo

Hey ladies! How's the start of your week so far? Mine's not so good. Laryngitis welcomed the start of the week plus the 1st of February for me. So I'm stuck here at home. Anyway, as I was going through my posts, I realized that I have not made a review on my favorite lipstick. How could I ever forget doing that? So I am going to start this month with a review on MAC Amplified Creme Lipstick in Cosmo.

Cosmo is described as Pink Coco on the MAC website.

What I like:
- The texture is really creamy and glides on smoothly on the lips. It says amplified creme so this better be creamy.
- I am not usually a fan of scented make up but I love the vanilla-ish scent of this lipstick as it is not overwhelming and smells really pleasant.
- This is the perfect MLBB lipstick for me - warm neutral pink.
- This doesn't have shimmer. Since I go for the natural look, lipsticks with shimmer doesn't really look natural.
- My lips look healthy when I am wearing this.
- This moisturizes and doesn't dry out my lips. Doesn't settle on the lines on my lips.
- Long lasting. It leaves a tint on my lips after hours of wearing it.
- Pigmented. I only need to lightly dab it on my lips then spread it evenly all over my lips with my pinkie.
- Locally available at Rustan's.

What I don't like:
- The price. PHP950 may be a little too expensive for one tube of lipstick to some.

But hey, I've had this since August and it's turning 6 months old with me and I haven't even used up half of it so the price may be a little "in between" for me.

Overall rating: 5/5

Will I buy again? Definitely! I'll forever hate MAC if they discontinue this just like what they did with Fresco (my first love when it comes to MAC lippies). I'm thinking Marisheeno may be discontinued as well as it's been over a year and a half since they've had it at MAC Shang.

Tip: If you have this, you can skip on MAC Twig and vice versa.

Here is a lip swatch of MAC Cosmo on me.

MAC Cosmo is simply lovely!

Have a great week, everyone! :P


  1. i have twig but i still want cosmo. are they so alike ba talaga?

  2. hi pammy! pretty shade!
    i have an amplified cream l/s too and i love love the texture :)

  3. Khymm, it is really pretty. It's my HG. :P

    Crystal, I remember asking Jovie of MAC Shang about Cosmo and Twig. I asked if I can pass up on Twig if I already have Cosmo and he said yes. But I think Twig has more brown tones than Cosmo, which, I think, has blue. :P

    Cha, try Cosmo. You'll love it. :P I think this suits both fair and morena. I have a friend who is morena and she likes Cosmo. :P

  4. We have different skintones (medium warm-golden tones), but I absolutely love this lipstick! It's the one I use most often!!! :D I also like Mari-sheeno. I wish I listened to the MAC SA's in Makati when they were recommending the shade. Was able to buy it 2 years back, in a multiply store. Now, it's so short and I'm saving it up hehehe :)

    I've tried Twig (but don't own one), and it was more brown tones, while Cosmo is more pink. A good dupe of MAC Cosmo is Revlon Matte in Mauve It Over...if you're after the price and a matte finish. Cosmo is creamy :)

    Btw, I'm the one who bought your MAC BPB in Joyous ;) Loving it!

  5. I remembered nothing down COSMO as one of "to buy" list, I don't know why the urge was gone , then there goes your post! hahahah it looks pretty on your lips but definitely boring on mine! :) thanks for the review!

  6. Crissy, I am saving Marisheeno too! I don't want to use it all up. :P I'lk check out the Revlon Mauve it over lippie. Jeez, I miss seeing Joyous on my blush box. :(

    Nikki, I remember you have Twig. They pretty much look the same. Could be one of the reasons why the lemming was gone. :P

  7. love the shade pammy! looks good on yoU! :) hope you're feeling better na.. :)
