It’s that time of the week again—and I’ve got a fab find for all the MAC (and matte) lovers out there!

It's the MAC Lipstick in Diva, P990. And yes, it's matte.

It’s the MAC Lipstick in Diva, around P900. And yes, it’s matte.

Honestly? I love MAC lipstick hues…a lot. They make me feel like I’m so fashionable whenever I swipe them on. It’s just the kind of lipstick that a cool girl would whip out, you know? The thing is, they hurt like heck when I put them on. It would really dry out my pout and leave my lips cracked for days.


It looks pretty red in the photo, but it’s so much darker in person. I thought it would be a chocolate red, but it’s actually more of a dark brick with blue-ish undertones.

Once applied, I was very aware that I had it on. I told myself that I would swipe it off immediately as soon as I felt any signs that my lips were drying out. But you know what? After four hours, I relaxed my beauty muscles. Looks like it wasn’t going to torture my pout this time. Phew! It’s either they reformulated a bit or this magic lip sleeping mask is really working! I use it at almost every other night!


When I saw it in the tube, it kinda reminded me of another cult-fave, MAC Rebel. It looks so different once you swipe it on though!

If you’re choosing between the two, I would say go for Diva if you want to make a stronger impact. Various reds (like oxblood red and modern takes on 90s shades) are more on-trend now compared to plum shades like Rebel. Now if you don’t want to spend you can always just combine different lipstick shades until you score a nice dupe like I did here. You’ll really impress your gals at your next get-together if you with this beauty hack!

One last look! What do you guys think? Yay or nay?

It’s not a color I’d wear on normal days, but it’s definitely fun to put this on when you’re feeling a little edgy or moody. Hehe! It’s always good to experiment with lipstick shades anyway and I love seeing how it can transform my look.

I hope you guys will join in on all the #GetLippieTuesday fun! Don’t forget to post a selfie or a pic of your favorite lipstick (more deets here)! I’m super dying to see what your current faves are—and possibly feature your review on the blog, too!
