Universally flattering, it's my go-to red. I love the formula of MAC matte lipsticks, it's not as drying as other mattes, and the scent is also nice. The blue undertones make your teeth look super white.

I love this color so much, but the main problem is that the formula is too DRY!!!! I can't stand!. I try many moisture balms for this lipstick and nothin works with it.

I'm giving it three and a half stars for the beautiful colour. I find the texture sticky and notice that it applies unevenly. Lipliner is a must with this product. I always have to blend with my fingertip and blot with a tissue. Still, the colour is lovely. I wore it for my passport photo!

On my rosy lips this lipstick is definitely more a classic, brick red then a brown. It's very classy. Mac lipsticks are generally drying on me and this is no exeption. With Mac Lip Prep + Prime I am good to go.

MAC's satin formula is basically my ideal matte formula. It looks very matte on the lips, is long-lasting, and doesn't make my lips feel dry. Twig is also a beautiful nude for light-medium skintones, and has that classic MAC vanilla scent. Also is fairly cheap for a high-end lipstick, half-star was taken off because MAC isn't cruelty free.

While pinky-brown in the package, Velvet Teddy looks like a muted brown on my mauvish lips. It looks very natural on the lips and compliments any make-up. I love the MAC Matte formula; it's matte, but still comfortable on the lips almost... velvety. Since this is a natural color on my lips, I only have to reapply after a big meal. Otherwise, it's long lasting on the lips without being drying.

MAC Party Line looks more like a sheer burgundy on me, more red than plum. I am a brunette with light-medium yellow toned complexion (NC20-25) and mauvish lips. The color is bright and has some shine, specific to MAC Cremesheen formula. It lasts only a few hours on the lips and wears off almost entirely (leaves minor to no tint on lips). The formula is very creamy, moves around and feathers into the fine lines around the mouth; since this is a darker color, this starts looking sloppy during the day if you don't wear it with care. Does not dry my lips. I like the color, but not in this formula.

Plumful looks really rose-plum on my lips, no pinky hue; definitely looks different on me than on Christine. I am a brunette with light-medium yellow toned complexion (NC20-25), with naturally mauvish lips. For me rose and plum lip products are usually my lips but better product. I really like the hue of Plumful, but I prefer other MAC finishes than Lustre. As all Lustre lipstick, it looks quite glossy on the lips. I can apply it in a sheer layer and get a very natural look; but I can also build this lipstick until I get a slightly dark plum. It does not last more than a few hours, and will be gone after a meal. It's somewhat hydrating on the lips at first, but I also feel my lips slightly dry after wearing this for a full day. On me it starts bleeding through the day, especially with reapplication; I definitely prefer MAC Matte and Satin finishes.

I just love the MAC Matte lipstick formula and this color. MAC Matte lipsticks are indeed matte, but still creamy. They don't dry out my lips more than they are any given day. They last through sipping and snacking, and looks quite good after a meal (depending on the meal, off-course). I re-apply them once or twice a day, just to keep my lips look perfect. As long as I just dab product on, re-application looks great as well. You need just a tiny layer to get food pigmentation. It stains the lips, but depending on what you eat the inside of the lips will get off during the day. Diva is definitely my staple color. I'm brunette, light-medium yellow done complexion (NC20-25). Diva just looks differently on anyone; on me is a dark true burgundy (more red than brown undertones). It's dark, without looking too vampy. Personally, I could wear this any day. It has the specific MAC lipstick scent, and matte formula tends to make it linger a little more.

Okay, so I'm a bit late on the band wagon. I get to do that as the beauty village elder. This lipstick was created in 1994 with Ru Paul in outrageous red sky high heels and a bright red rock star looking outfit. It's the perfect everyday red for me. Lorac used to have the most wonderful red brown cheek and lip pot ages and ages ago. I wore it almost every day, with jeans, dresses. It went with everything. Viva Glam 1 is the next best thing. In fact, it's better because 100% of the proceeds go to the AIDS FUND. Why didn't I get this back in 1994? I came to makeup late, really late. Now, I am enjoying playing with color, learning new techniques and benefitting from the reviews and tutorials of people who have my coloring or have the same beauty challenges I have. This is a winner if you have yellow or golden undertones and medium to tan skin, but I know it looks good on a lot of skin tones. Winner.

This one, along with Ruby Woo, are my two favourite red lipsticks. It's a satin finish, thus it's not drying at all, and you can wear it all day long without feeling any discomfort.

Too much blue toned shimmer in that one...Maybe it's just me, but that much sparkle in an already vibrant coloured lip product makes it look cheap.

This color was beautiful in the tube, however went on my lips a much different color. After prepping and priming I applied the product. It was very pigmented but not near as dark of a shade as I expected. I've tried applying directly and also with a brush, I've used it with a M.A.C. primer and I've tried it with my Bite Beauty primer. I cannot get it to look even and I find it to be only semi-matte, and even after a powder sweep it is still extremely transferable. My search for the perfect fall color, to my dismay, shall continue.

My everyday/go to lipstick. I think it works well with so many different eyeshadow colors. If I ever finish this I am going to buy a new one for sure.

I've become a purple freak... I've been collecting a couple of purple lipsticks from different brands for a while now (no dupes of course). But none is as versatile (for wearing) as this colour. You can wear this casually: at work, going to uni, preparing for an interview, while meeting friends, at a bar night out. It's just the perfect brightness and purply tone. It goes fantastic with nude, simple make-up look. It's extremely pigmented with one swipe and MOST IMPORTANTLY it doesn't feather/bleed over the lip line after application. It's lasts a damn long time/ isn't drying (like illamasqua lipsticks) too. I'm in the city for over 8 hours and I only re-apply lightly after a meal. It's now my casual go-to lipstick.

This is my first mac lipstick and I LOVE IT. It's a beautiful color for spring/summer, and the matte definitely doesn't feel uncomfortable at all. It's super easy to put on because it's so pigmented and creamy. It's so perfect! :) ♥

I lurve MAC lipsticks! Under the MAC Naturally Transformed lipstick review I have all of them besides Stone. I believed Stone might pull a bit grey on me (like Velvet Teddy did unfortunately), but brown/beige is my fave color for makeup (of all kinds! I'm a fan of brown lipliner, eyeliner, eyeshadow, hmmm I need a good brown waterproof mascara to replace my old WP Maybelline Great Lash!) so I'm a big fan of Naturally Transformed, Mocha, Taupe, Whirl, Persistence, velvet teddy, kinda sexy, Fleshpot, myth, Freckletone, bronze shimmer, et al. Hi this is my first review, here's to hoping it goes in the right spot! I love this site & I could browse it for hours. I'm a big fan, Christine! MAC (& Chanel) are my fave lippies. I highly rec'd MAC lipsticks. The price pointe is okay, quality is gr8 & color selection is wonderful! I have about 75 MAC lippies (Lipsticks/Lipglasses) so I'm a bit of a hoarder :) the only MAC lipsticks I ever returned were VG Nicki 2 & Ariana Grande out of many happily forked over money to MAC. I love MAC! Truly makeup for folks who love makeup!!

Really nice color however the texture was terrible!!! Its one of those colors that is very summer without being too coral or pink, its in that perfect in between which is why I brought it!! But as I said the texture makes me regret purchasing, it went on dry and turned almost flakey with in hours, which was surprising since Mac's lipsticks are usually amazing! Overall I would not recommend without a gloss, which being a matte lipstick shouldn't be the case!

I expected a darker red, but when I tried it on, I LOVED IT! It´s the perfect fall/winter red, the berry undertone looks really flattering, and it makes it look quite vampy but it is definitely an everyday red color. The formula is matte, it lasts for a long time, and because it leaves a stain you truly never have to reapply it, it is not dry nor hydrating, it´s perfect! The formula is kind of the same as Rebel by Mac, since you can build up the color, or leave a wash of color on the lips, and it´ll leave a stain, however this is a lot more pigmented that Rebel.

I really love this color, but am giving it 3 stars because after wearing it for two hours, it was removed from my lips and only outlined them in this awful flakey purple residue. I haven't had this problem with my other Mac lipsticks. Maybe I should use a lip primer next time? I really want it to work- just be aware to check it so you don't end up looking embarrassing at work like me : )

A classic lip colour. I love this colour, despite the fact that it is a cool red and I have strong yellow undertones. It is highly pigmented and once on, it does not budge. It is slightly drying, but that's nothing a little balm can't fix. I think this is one of those universal reds that will look great on anybody. And I much prefer it over Ruby Woo. If you are a newbie to MAC lipsticks, I would definitely recommend this one to start with!

This is an amazing colour. I believe it is one of the Mattes. Either way, it is one of those brick-orange reds that is perfectly suited to dark-skinned ladies. Since it is a Matte, it is fairly drying and causes my lips to flake. The colour is well-worth it thought and the wear-time is great!
