I'll begin by saying that I am so pleased to finally have MAC 'Diva' lipstick in my hands (and on my lips) having received it as a gift from New York recently. It was the lipstick that I'd been lusting over for quite a few weeks, and I had been told over and over again that it was sold out each time I visited my local MAC counter. (It's like the 'Velvet Teddy' phase all over again!) I've literally been wearing 'Diva' almost every day, and have gotten so many compliments on it, and also people asking, ''OMG what have you got on your lips?!''.. hence why I've decided to do this post! :-)
The dark berry-toned matte lipstick is all I've been seeing on Instagram lately, and I have to say, it looks amazing on everybody I've seen wearing it. It's no wonder we're all going mad for it, it's pretty much autumn-winter season in a lipstick. The matte finish makes for a lovely look paired with a glittery pigment on the eyes and although it is a matte finish, there is honestly nothing drying or uncomfortable about it, but if you really like to make sure your lips won't dry out, add a little lip balm beforehand or a gloss after to give an extra sheen!
I like to pair 'Diva' with MAC 'Current' lip pencil to make sure the edges are nice and sharp although filling in your whole lip with the lip pencil before applying the lipstick will increase the longevity and also enhance the colour.. so if you're going to an all-day event or out to dinner, that's your best bet!
