MAC Matte Lipstick Diva Review & Swatches


MAC Matte Lipstick Diva

Fall lips and no mention about MAC DIVA?? Wherever you search on net I’m 99.9 % sure that you will get to see honourable mention of this beautiful fall shade from MAC’s permanent line – DIVA. I have had this for a year or two and trust me this comes out as soon as there is chill in air and here is me wearing the shade for you.

My experience with MAC Matte Lipstick Diva :

Shade – DIVA is described as intense reddish burgundy it is warm toned muted deep maroon burgundy red shade with soft sheen , as its not retro matte you can see slight sheen in them and this makes it easy to wear colour on any skin tone and at any time of the day . I highly recommend someone who is above NC 37 to give it a shot; it is a cult classic and famous like its name.

Texture – DIVA is from matte range and hence you can see the texture may not be super glossy or creamy but still MAC’s matte formula is nothing to complain about. It glides nicely on well moisturized lips and doesn’t bleed or settle in fine lines plus it never requires any lip liner underneath.

Pigmentation – The lipstick is opaque in one layer, another layer adds more evenness to it. I highly recommend you to prep your lips in advance else it will enhance all the flaws , but to get more true matte lips just wipe off any balm applied beforehand so that you get saturated colour .

Staying power – I get solid 5 plus hrs of wear with shade and then it leave behind a berry tint which again stays for 2 – 3 hrs.
