MAC Diva Lipstick.
MAC Diva Lipstick | £15.50
The newest one to my collection but one that is definitely perfect for this time of they year! Its a very autumnal dark red shade, which can be worn throughout both Autumn and Winter.
The formulation is a creamy matte which is very long lasting, I can eat & drink throughout the day and only have to worry about slight fading. One thing I do find annoying with this particular lipstick shade is the transfer from it, because it is such a dark colour it tends to cling to foundation around my mouth and due to this it stains, maybe this is just my problem though and maybe it's just an issue with this shade as none of my other lipsticks from MAC do this!
To apply the lipstick, I simply apply a lip liner of choice and fill in my entire lips to apply use as a base (not that it needs a base as the pigmentation is unreal!) but to make my application a lot neater as I'm not great at applying dark lips... lol. Then I correct my mistakes with concealer and the Real Techniques 'detailer brush' to make a crisp line on my bottom lip, and then I'm set for the day!
I'm not really a 'coloured' lip sort of girl. I tend to stick to neutral colours or just plain old nudes as I don't like drawing attention to my teeth, but, this shade is gorgeous I just couldn't resist.
In this picture I am wearing Diva on it's own to give you a true representation of the colour.
