Diva is one of my all time favourite lipsticks from MAC. It is described as an intense reddish burgundy and it is a gorgeous vampy colour ideal for this time of year. It’s a difficult shade to pull off but I think I do alright with it, I’ve had a lot of people ask what lipstick I’m wearing and I’ve had many compliments every time I’ve worn it. I’d definitely recommend people try this shade before they buy as it can be quite daunting but I absolutely adore it. It creates a stunning bold statement lip. Diva is a matte finish which is highly pigmented and the colour pay out is awesome. I find that it has incredible staying power, it lasts about 5-6 hours and that’s with eating and drinking as well. I’d recommend wearing a red lipliner underneath so that it leaves a nice even stain when it starts to wear off (I use Cherry from MAC personally). The matte finish means that you do have to give your lips a decent amount of preparation before applying as Diva has a tendency to cling to dry patches so I’d recommend using a lip scrub, a lip primer or lip balm, then leave it to settle in for a few minutes and then apply the lipstick for the best results.

  • I’ve been rocking Russian Red and Dark Side a lot this month. I love the amplified finish at MAC because of the way it’s not to glossy and it can be dabbed down to a matte. What’s your favourite finish?

    • Russian Red is my favourite of all the MAC reds! I’ve been wearing Dark Side too along with Hang-Up, Private Party, Rebel and Diva! They’re my autumn/winter shades from MAC! I think my favourite finish had to be matte though! I love the staying power and colour pay out from a matte lip! X

  • Adore this shade! So perfect right now.
