'cosmético' in Other Languages
British English: cosmetic ADJECTIVE
If you describe measures or changes as cosmetic, you mean they improve the appearance of a situation or thing but do not change its basic nature, and you are usually implying that they are inadequate.
It is a cosmetic measure which will do nothing to help the situation long term.
