I discovered Kosas Cosmetics few months ago and I bought Rosewater unseen. I really liked the texture and the moisturising power, so I decided to purchase also Stardust. Is is as good as Rosewater?


Along with Rosewater, Stardust is one of the two “sheer” lipsticks in the collection. However, it still goes on the lips very easily and with lots of pigment, The colour is a mix of pink/brown/peachy with a coral hint. It has a warm undertone, unlike Rosewater.

It glides on effortlessly, it is moisturising and comfortable on the lips. Kosas nailed the formula and colours. It has a good staying power (+2 hours without eating/drinking) and I use it also as a blush as it has a very wearable heathy tinge on the cheeks. Another hit in the collection!

It has a slight scent of vanilla. My nose takes it very well, but yours may not.


Straight from the tube. No need to use a lipliner. The formula is very moisturising and has excellent coverage. If you prefer you can apply it with a lip brush or, for a hint of colour, dab it on the lips with your fingers (it will look like a stain).

I like to use this colour also on my cheeks: it is super easy to blend and it does not streak. A great multi tasker.

4.0 grams. The lipstick is in a bullet (yeah!!!!) and it is contained in a clean and classy black container.

It has a minimalist carton box with Kosas in bold written on it. Love it!
