Review: MAC Lipstick in Diva

Dark berry and vampy colours  have a special place in my heart. If I want to feel sexy or like I can take on the world then I tend to reach for one of those. MAC’s lipstick in Diva was my first adventure into the berry lipstick world. I have no regrets. Packagewise, it comes in the classic matte black bullet.It is a matte finish and is described as an, “Intense reddish-burgundy”. I find this to be on the creamy side of the matte scale. It’s very easy to apply, and does not feel drying at all. Honestly, saying it is a matte finish is almost a lie. it’s an absolutely gorgeous shade and it is so flattering. I do find that it can require a bit of maintenance as it can smudge and transfer a bit due to it’s creamier finish.


  1. On the creamy side of the matte scale, very easy to apply and not at all drying.
  2. Super pigmented, covers lips in one swipe.
  3. Cost, retails for $21.00 (Canadian) for 3 g / 0.1 US oz of product which really isn’t too bad when compare to other high end lipsticks.
  4. Vanilla scented, for you vanilla lovers out there this is a win win situation.
  5. Reddish burgandy colour, bound to be super flattering on all skin tones


  1. Cost, retails for $21.00 (Canadian) which is more than your typical drugstore lipstick.
  2. I have found that this lipstick can transfer a bit. Not as smudge proof, fade proof or transfer resistant as I would have liked but probably due to it being more creamy.
