MAC Diva


I've realized I've lost my "blogging mojo" for a while there when I stopped visiting blogger.com everyday like how I used to. But well, it's back... I hope. I'm also back from my Malaysia-Singapore trip (post about it next time)! x

Anyway, so.. I bought another lipstick. & another red one at that. But to be fair, I have been wanting Diva for the longest time.. So when given the chance to purchase it on a much, MUCH cheaper price I took the bait and took it home with me ;)

Here's how it looks on me:


Diva is somewhat similar to my favorite red, Deeply Adored, only a bit darker and more burgundy - significantly less darker than MAC Viva Glam III though. This is probably the driest MAC matte lipstick I've ever own - there's no hint of creaminess to it at all! It drags along my lips when applied (less so than Ruby Woo), but nothing a good lip balm (or lip definer!) can't fix. It's lovely, albeit quite too dark for everyday wear.

What's your go-to red? :)

  2. I have this one and love it! My bf thinks it makes me look goth but I don't care, I think it's such a beautiful bold colour.

  8. @Jess: I personally really, really love MAC Deeply Adored but unfortunately that's an LE.. Try MAC Russian Red/Ruby Woo! Classic reds, IMO. :) Or if you're willing to splurge Burberry lip velvet in Military Red looks reaaally good. :)
