Let me introduce to you Mac Diva, a new autumnal offering in my lipstick collection that my lovely friend bought for me when she visited New York last week. Described as an intense reddish-burgundy, this lipstick is not for the faint hearted as it really makes a statement, but I find it very wearable at the same time.
Mac Diva is a warm-toned black cherry color which I find to leans more reddish brown, than purple. It is extremely pigmented and rich in color and is fully opaque with literally one swipe. Even though it has a matte finish, I find it very comfortable on the lips and not too drying at all. I wouldn’t say it was hydrating, but it definitely doesn’t leave your lips crying out for moisture. Because of the matte formulation, it has a good grip on the lips and is very long-lasting. Even when the color fades, it leaves a beautiful stain to the lips.
I am loving these dark and vampy shades this autumn and Mac Diva is a new favorite in my collection. I am on the hunt for its matching lip liner now which I believe is Mac Burgundy, I have been wearing it with Soar temporarily, which does the job but need something a little darker. I think this will have to be my next Mac purchase!
