Beautiful brown with copper flakes lipstick
This is a beautiful lipstick! It has the neatest packaging I have seen in a long time. The tube is a pretty pink color with a faux gemstone in the package. The smell of the lipstick is nice...not chemical and not overwhelming. The color is great and lasts well into my day, especially when layered over lip liner.
To be quite honest, I have been a MAC girl for about ten years when it comes to lipstick. I was very devoted to one shade...Shiitake. This was the first tube of lipstick I ever finished and I bought them three at a time. However, in the ways of the fickle world of MAC, my beloved lipstick was discontinued! I bought tube upon tube of other colors and brands to try and resurrect my lost love! Everything was too brown, too nude, too pink. Then I found this little gem in Cougar! Am I happy! It is the most like MAC Shiitake that I have found. It is a perfect warm brown with copper shimmer. I will definitely repurchase this product...probably three at a time...just in case!
Nice feel, not super opaque
I like this lipstick in that it really doesn't feel dry on the lips...especially since my lips are always dry. The one downside is that the color isn't super opaque, and it's ok since I don't think it's marketed as a crazy "amplified-like" finish. There is a lot of color, but I have to pass it more than a couple of times to get true color, which isn't a bad thing considering how it feels on the lips. I also like the scent...if you're sensitive to certain scents, I would highly recommend looking at it in the store and smelling it first before buying. It's not a typical lipstick (vanilla) smell.
love love love this lipstick! Whenever I just need a little color but nothing to extravagant I put my two faced Marcia Marcia Marcia on and Ill have natural lip color for my day ahead. If you have olive complexion I really do suggest this product to brighten up your face ESPECIALLY in the winter
AMAZING. I really am thinking about stocking up on this lipstick cause I love it so much! It's a perfect nude/pink color I've ever had. It's an every day wear. Plus, if the color is too light for you, you can always mix some more vibrant pink with it to spice it up. But this lip stick is just amazing!
