Have you ever wanted something so badly and had no idea why. Well, that was the case with me and MAC Cockney Lipstick. I probably have a dozen other red lipsticks and glosses and hardly wear any of them, yet I
badly obsessively wanted this lipstick for god knows what reason. Actually, I do know the reason; I wanted it because I thought it was a sheer glossy red. After all, it is a lustre finish, and description goes as “sheer yellow red with multidimensional pearl.” I thought it would be the perfect day red, but it turned out be not so sheer though still very beautiful. It is still less high maintenance than the other in your face (but oh so stunning) reds, but it doesn’t qualify to be a day red (for me at least!). The wear is comfortable but not as hydrating as other lustre finishes from MAC. I think it is a perfect lipstick from those who shy away from the boldness of a true red lip; you will get the glamour quotient of a red lipstick sans the in your face attitude.
