Ah the good old obsession with lipsticks! How can I help it. A woman can never have to many lip products. Can she? I mean if I dig in my bag right now I will come out with atleast 3 lip balms and 2 lipsticks. lol
But today I would be reviewing a lipstick, which does not belong to me but my mum.
It is a intense reddish-burgundy with a matte finish in standard mac packaging case of 3g
Mac offers lipsticks in a number of finishes i.e amplified,amplified creme,cremesheen,dazzle,frost,glaze,lustre,matte and satin.
The other reds to try bestsellers from mac are russian red,mac red and ruby woo.
But to my mum this is her red best.
Since the time we are born red or maroon or burgundy are the shades we often , I’dsay the most often see on woman in India.Our mothers make it their most worn lipstick regardless. With my mum atleast, this is the case.She has been and will wear deep reds or maroon lipsticks.
Mac diva is one such colour I have found which will be great on all skin tones.
I am an nc42(atleast in summers, I was) and you will see in the below given pictures how MAC Diva lipstick looks on my lips.
Pros of MAC Diva Lipstick
- Beautiful burgundy! I would not actually call it a red but more to the maroonish burgundy family
- You can see the difference in one of the pictures in which I am wearing a red colour on my nails and the diva swatch
- For matte lovers this is very matte.No shine at all
- It is an understated sort of burgandy . This lipstick is something that i would wear with a little black dress to a party.
- Although it’s a matte lipstick but it is not very drying. But I do put on a balm under it when I wear it(very very rare)
- Got the standard faint mac vanilla smell
- 3g is a good quantity
- I personally like the mac packaging. Classy.
CONS of MAC Diva Lipstick
- Umm..The price. Had it not been for my mum, I would have never brought this expensive lipstick.I think this is the one and only mac lipstick(me and my mum)we jointly own.
- Matte can be very drying sometimes.
- The stay power is around 4 hours, without eating.
- It retails for about 15 USD and about Rs 900 or so in India which is a tad bit too much for a lipstick but again it is MAC
I am going to end this review with these lines which I love and follow :
