Kosås Weightless Lip Color offers one exquisite formula. It’s the creamy-matte lipstick of my dreams. The lipstick effortlessly glides across the lips, as it leaves behind intense pigment in one swipe. What is most remarkable is the wear time. Through hours of eating and drinking the formula barely budges and maintains a creamy feel. It’s the most low-maintenance lipstick that I’ve ever come across. Long after application, when the lipstick does begin to fade, a beautiful stain remains. Touch-ups are not mandatory, just add some balm to re-hydrate. For now, Kosås only carries four shades and they kind of nailed them! These four very beautiful shades are universally flattering and modern, yet timeless.
“The perfect, modern nude that will not wash you out. Strikes just the right balance between pink and brown for a very human warmth. Semi-matte, full-coverage, long-wearing, and moisturizing.” – Kosås
Perhaps my personal favorite of the collection, Undone*, is a perfectly balanced medium neutral rose shade with a creamy-matte finish. Try patting this shade on the lips with your fingertips for a beautiful natural-looking stain.
“An easy-to-wear, just-bitten tone that will reveal the best version of you. Easy and effortless. Semi-transparent with a low-shine finish similar to a perfectly hydrated lip.” – Kosås
Rosewater* is the perfect neutral pink shade. Unlike the other three shades from Kosås, Rosewater has a low-shine and a semi-sheer formula. Rosewater can be built up from a natural healthy pink-flush to a fuller coverage lipstick with a soft sheen.
“An unfussy red with a rebel yell. Earthy undertones give it a casual, ripped-jeans vibe that doesn’t take itself as seriously as other more glamorous reds. Semi-matte, no sparkle, buildable coverage with added moisture.” – Kosås
Fringe* is warm-toned red with a creamy-matte formula. It’s an unfussy wearable red that can translate from day to night.
“Moody, sexy, and powerful, at least that’s how this deep hue will make you feel. Wear it during the day for extra motivation. Low-shine, buildable coverage that can be applied as a stain or straight out of the tube for maximum versatility.” – Kosås
Darkroom* is a delicious deep cranberry shade. It provides the same creamy-matte formula akin to Undone and Fringe. Pat this color on the lips for a fresh berry stain.
