Let me start off by stating that I love lipsticks by M.A.C. cosmetics. I think their current formulation and variety of lipsticks is great and I always leave as a happy camper. Although my lipstick collection has been steadily increasing and killing my wallet in the process, I knew deep down inside that I could not pass up on adding a few more lipsticks to my repertoire. Some call this a shopping addiction, but I call this life.
Anyways, I digress. The lipstick color I have been pining over for some time is a lipstick color by M.A.C. called DIVA. I'm not sure why I took so long to purchase this color, because when I did finally buy it, I realized that it was such a great lipstick! It's such a classy color without being too dramatic or going overboard which means I can wear it all the time- which I do. In fact, I wear this lipstick to work quite regularly, as well as when I go out socializing with friends. It's such a great shade and is a great color for the winter months, if your affected with the weather as much as I have been.
*Tips: Since this is a very matte lipstick it may be hard to apply on your lips properly without having it smear or go outside of your lips. In order to prevent this from happening, use a lip pencil to trace the outline of your lips as it will give you a more clean, precise look and will allow the lipstick to stay within your lips and not bleed out.
If you choose, you can use the lip liner to fill in your whole lips, which will help the lipstick to stay on your lips even longer than if lipstick alone were on you lips. However, please keep in mind that a lip pencil is not mandatory when applying this lipstick on. So, don't worry if you don't have a lip pencil that will suit your lipstick or lip color.
- Beautiful color
- Long staying power
- Looks great on all complexions
- Matte which can be drying on the lips
- May not happen, but might bleed outside of your lip line due to the texture
Overall, I'm a fan of this lipstick. If you don't have a burgundy color in your collection yet, I think that this is a great lipstick and is definitely a worth while purchase.

Who says your lips can't look good in the winter?
I hope you enjoyed my M.A.C. lipstick review about the shade DIVA and gained some helpful advice on whether this is a color that will be great for you.
