Most of the lip shades I own are either pink or peach but this time I thought of exploring other shade families and here is one lipstick from my mother’s stash. After experimenting with this shade I think I will be looking for more brown lippies to fill my lipstick stash. Keep reading to explore the shade.

My experience with Mac Matte Lipstick Deep Love :
Smell and packaging: This particular lipstick has a yummy vanilla fragrance. The packaging is the signature black lipstick case packaging which does not get boring no matter how many Mac lipsticks a woman owns.
Shade: The shade Deep love is a dark chocolaty brown shade. I find the shade bold and sultry at the same time. The name as I believe is confessing love for dark chocolate jokes apart this is a tricky shade and a must have for women who love bold on their lips. Basically this is best adorned by women of the mature age group as in youngsters the shade might add some years. Even if this is worn as an office wear then rest of the face should have that no makeup look effect. I think this can be a great option to create bold make up look keeping other features minimal as it is bound to attract too much attention. If I am not wrong then this can be good for Halloween make up too.
Texture and Pigmentation The texture of this lipstick is creamy and it glides on smoothly onto the lips. Unlike the range in which it falls that is matte; the finish it gives is creamy and shiny. Thankfully it does not melt even under extreme hot conditions. There is no need of conditioning lips with a balm prior to this lipstick as it is extremely moisturizing.
The pigmentation of this lipstick is very good as two swipes give the final shade but it gets displaced very easily. Even it transfers very easily to cups and elsewhere. This is an excellent option for pigmented and dark lips. Also it does not settle in between the lines or showcase the dry areas when applied on unscrubbed lips.
Staying Power: The staying power is 4-5 hours and being a dark shade it leaves behind a tint which may not be very appealing so it is better to reapply after short meals. Plus this bleeds a little so make sure of applying a complimentary lip liner along with this. A decent cleansing milk or simple makeup remover wipes can get rid of it easily at the end of the day.
Summing it up:
What I like about Mac Matte Lipstick Deep Love:
- Bold dark chocolate brown shade
- Smooth as butter
- Does not melt that easily
- Stays for long
- Conditions the lips
- Shiny finish
- Nice pigmentation
- Does not feel heavy on lips
- Easy to remove
What I don’t like about Mac Matte Lipstick Deep Love:
- Bleeds a little
- Transfers a lot but which creamy lipstick does not so it not a con.
Overall verdict: In all this is a seductive dark chocolate lip shade; highly recommended to brown lovers and to suckers of extremely bold and mature shades. Hope you like this
