I love the new MAC lipsticks! Everyday Diva is great because its very similar to Mac Red. but looks slightly more flattering on NC30/NW20 skin. I love how it can look like sheer lipstain or glaze when you apply one layer or you can build it up and go for the bold red lips. They are vanilla scented, which I love, and come in sleek all black packaging and I really like how they are magnetic so the cap doesn’t fall off when you toss it in you’re purse.
So I will admit, I do wear this shade when I’m having my diva days, but it’s in the name so hey, who can blame me? This most definitely what I call a ‘hollywood’ shade of red. The color is bright compared to Cockney, but that’s what makes the two stand apart in the MAC red family. One is more hollywood and the other more sultry, in my opinion. Either way, I’m more then happy to have this in my makeup bag.
MAC Everyday Diva Mineralize Rich Lipstick ($22.00 for 0.14 oz.) is described as a “true red cream.” It’s a subtly blue-based, medium-dark red with a creamy finish and slightly glossy sheen. There’s not much to it, since it’s a creamy red, so there are certainly many similar red lipsticks available, so I wanted to give you similar shades that also had a similar finish. Clinique Mightiest Maraschino is just slightly less glossy. Edward Bess Midnight Bloom is darker. MAC New Temptation is glossier.
