MAC Everyday Diva Mineralize Rich Lipstick
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.
The color is opaque without being heavy or thick, and I think that’s really one of the features of this formula. It feels lighter and sits well on the lips. It doesn’t have as much slip as the Sheen Supreme range, but it has a lot more slip than the majority of MAC lipsticks and formulas. As a result, the lipstick glides on without tugging or pulling and delivers a good amount of color in each pass. Everyday Diva lasted five hours, which is short of wear with say, a matte red lipstick, but it is still above average wear for lipsticks and still good wear for a creamier lip product. I wish these were as moisturizing as touted (“77-Mineral Moist Complex” and “maximum moisture” are used describe the formula), though they are still somewhat hydrating.
