The Altar Loves: M.A.C Cosmo Lipstick.


Here at the Altar we are fussy about the products we use. Things have to be pretty darn good to get into our kits and for something to make it onto our favourites list, it has to be almost perfect. Enter – M.A.C Cosmo lipstick.



















Chances are, if you’ve sat in my makeup chair; you’ll have worn this lippy. The prettiest, soft rose shade – it’s ideal for when you don’t want a ‘Lip Look’ but you also don’t necessarily want a nude lip either. This describes what so many of our brides ask for and luckily – Cosmo suits a really wide range of skin tones.

It’s a satin finish which gives a lovely natural finish but a good wear time – we don’t favour traditional ‘Long Wear’ formulas here at The Altar, they tend to be very drying and uncomfortable and when they DO start to wear off (and they will) it can turn your gorgeous pout into a flaky mess. We much prefer to have someone (here’s where your bridesmaids come in!) on lip duty – keeping an eye on how the lipstick is looking and reminding the bride to do a quick but infrequent touch-up when needed. That way your lipstick looks AND feels great all day.





























Nikita, Leah and Michelle all wore Cosmo on their wedding days, and you can see how lovely it looked on all three of them even though their skin tones are completely different. 

It’s definitely a hero product around here and to celebrate the Launch of The Altar Bridal, we’re giving one away! To enter, all you have to do is follow our Instagram (@thealtarbridal), find the Cosmo post, like it, comment #thealtarloves, and tag a friend. You can tag as many friends as you like! Competition closes on Sunday 5th August at 11.59pm AEST and the winner will be notified by Instagram DM. Competition only open to Australian residents. Good Luck!

xx Jemma
