Like many in the beauty community, I was really into the deep toned lip look this past fall/winter. One of my lip color acquisitions at the time was MAC's Diva lipstick ($15.00). The intense color was perfect for the season and it had all the signs of being a sure staple. I don't know whether I was occupied with another lipstick love or something of the sort, but Diva somehow got lost and forgotten in my lipstick arsenal. I know. Sad. Well, I finally pulled it out recently and I am pretty upset with myself for not rocking this lip color sooner, and giving it the attention it deserves.
Diva is a gorgeous, deep reddened burgundy matte. I must say, for being comprised of a matte formula, this has got to be one of the smoothest matte lipsticks I have ever encountered. From personal experience, mattes are pretty notorious for enhancing dry lips and imperfections. But with this lipstick, I don't have to worry about any of that! Diva applies like a dream, offering a smooth looking finish and amazing color payoff. Diva doesn't disappoint when it comes to lasting power. It lasts a good couple of hours, fading into a lovely reddened berry stain.
When I wear Diva, I can't help but feel glamorous. In the look above I paired Diva with a smokey golden bronze eye, and I couldn't be anymore pleased with the outcome. I find that this lip color really brings out the strong features of the look in a beautiful way, making it all that more interesting and mysterious.
Overall: I think everyone should have a high quality, deep reddened burgundy in their collection, and I can't recommend MAC's Diva lipstick enough. Not to mention, a lip color like this is one that I find universally flattering. I will make sure not to forget about Diva come fall. I am definitely not making that same mistake again!
