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 try other colours: I have already reviewed Stardust, Undone and Fringe. In this review I test Royal.


Despite the bright colour in the bullet Royal is very wearable and does not look too obvious. I was surpirsed by this colour and I use it very often as it brightens up my pale face!

It glides on effortlessly, it is moisturising and comfortable on the lips. Kosas nailed the formula and colours. It does not streak and the clour is omogeneous on the lips.

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!


Ricinus Communis (Castor) Seed Oil, Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride (derived from coconut oil), Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelila Wax), Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Octyldodecanol, Lanolin Oil, Pentaerythrityl Tetraethylhexanoate, Copernicia Cerifera (Carnauba) Wax, Beeswax (Cera Alba), Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Seed Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Bran Extract [and] Rosmarinus Officinalis (Rosemary) Leaf Extract [and] Helianthus Anuus (Sunflower) Extract [and] Tocopherols, Microcrystalline Wax, Mangifera Indica (Mango) Seed Butter, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Rosa Muschata (Rosehip) Seed Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Oil, Vanillin, Tocopherol Acetate (Vitamin E), Ethylhexylglycerin, Caprylyl Glycol.


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.


Royal applied directly from the bullet.

On top Stardust and on the bottom Royal.


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. Love it!
