My Take on MAC Diva Lipstick:
I recently chanced to pick this beautiful shade from a friend and although there was only half product left, still the shade was so pretty that I couldn’t leave it behind. My first MAC lipstick from the matte range and although I am not a fan of matte texture but the shade is definitely alluring and can’t be skipped.
Shade: Matte describes the color Diva as ‘Intense reddish-burgundy’. Very accurate description indeed by the brand; Diva is definitely a deep dark burgundy red. The shade is Bold, Feminine, Assertive and a little Dangerous to look at. I love the look of my dark lips with this color on. Though the shade looks more accurate in the hand swatch, still applied once, you can make your lip-color really stand out. For me, the color Diva is just the kind of red I like, to make me feel and look bold and pretty.
MAC Diva Lipstick Swatch:
Texture: Diva falls under the Matte range of MAC lipsticks. Though it is matte in texture, the lipstick is creamy enough to get applied easily without accentuating the fine lines. It is highly pigmented and can be used as a stain, can be applied once for a more reddish tone and can be layered to get that dangerous burgundy red color on to the lips. Anyway, the color will flatter all skin tones nicely.
The shade fades away evenly. And it is definitely drying. I have to apply a lip balm at the end of the day.
Staying power: MAC Diva easily stays on 4+ hours on me with a full meal in between. The color survives a full meal and is left as a deep stain that eliminates the need for a touch-up. And it fades away quite evenly and doesn’t settle in fine lines later.
Packaging: MAC Diva comes in the standard matte black MAC pack with a sturdy bullet inside which remains intact even in extreme hot climate.

Review by Nids Nidsy. It looks wonderful on you. <3 BTW every single lipstick looks so good on you. This one is too deep a red for my liking. I like blood-reds better. :P I have a similar shade from Faces and I wear it when I am in mood for some dark and bold lip color, though very rarely. O:)
