Coral Lips: Costa Chic vs Watch Me Simmer

19 February 2013

 MAC Costa Chic - £14 (£9 paid) & MAC Watch Me Simmer (LE) - £14

In my recent Face Update Post, one of my favourite bloggers, Mel (check her out here), commented that she's looking forward to wearing coral lipsticks for Spring/Summer. Conveniently enough, I'd just picked up a long term lust of mine - seriously, I can't count the amount of times I've put this in my online basket! - Costa Chic at a Cosmetics Company Outlet, so I thought I'd showcase it along with another seasonal favourite of mine, Watch Me Simmer.

Costa Chic is a permanent shade, and my first Frost finish lipstick from MAC. I'm really pleased with it - it feels moisturising and pigmented on the lips, whilst not being quite so in your face as Watch Me Simmer. Ahh, Watch Me Simmer (full review here). I became obsessed with tracking it down after seeing it featured on Mel's blog. Whereas Costa Chic is what I'd consider to be a 'true coral', Watch Me Simmer has bold pink undertones. It's long lasting, and a perfect bold lip for summer.

What's your favourite Spring/Summer lipstick? Are you a coral fan?

  18. Beautiful shades! :) I'll have to put Costa Chic on my list! It looks lovely. Have you tried Vegas Volt by MAC? I really like that one, though it is quite bold and in your face.

  19. Thanks for the helpful comparison! I'm a sucker for coral and bright pink shades, so both of these are right up my alley. MAC Vegas Volt is one of my favourite vibrant coral shades :)
