MAC Diva Antics Lipstick
MAC Diva Antics Lipstick

MAC Diva Antics Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as an “intense reddish burgundy.” It’s a dark, berry-red with very subtle pink pearl and a natural finish. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a lightly creamy consistency that applied beautifully and lasted for six hours, while also leaving behind a stain. The formula was neither drying nor hydrating but generally comfortable to wear. Urban Decay Bruise (LE, $18.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Labradorable (LE, $25.00) is less pigmented, cooler (85% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Blow (210) (P, $30.00) is darker (90% similar).

MAC Fashion Revival Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “deep raspberry.” It’s a muted, medium-dark berry with cool undertones and a semi-matte finish. It had mostly opaque pigmentation with a lightly creamy texture that didn’t tug, but it was firmer than Diva Antics. On me, the color lasted for five hours and was a smidgen drying.

MAC My Inner Femme Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as an “intense orangey red.” It’s a lightly brightened, medium-dark coral-red with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had good pigmentation that was nearly full coverage in one stroke, while the consistency was thinner compared to the other two shades. It was still easy to apply and didn’t drag when applied. The color lasted for five and a half hours and left behind a stain. It was neither drying nor hydrating. Bite Beauty Mimosa (DC, $24.00) is darker (95% similar).

MAC Self-Aware Lipstick ($17.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “coffee nude.” It’s a muted, medium-dark beige-brown with subtle, warm undertones and a satin finish. It had mostly opaque color coverage that applied evenly without tugging on the lips. The texture was just creamy enough to apply well but not enough to slide around once on. This shade lasted for four and a half hours, and it was a smidgen drying. Hourglass I'll Never Stop (P, $34.00) is lighter (95% similar). Makeup Geek Jetsetter (P, $12.00) is warmer (95% similar).

I’m loving all! I’m thinking I may have Fashion Revival. but, if it was a LE a long time ago, I possibly could have missed it. So, I have to check my stash. Otherwise, I think I’m going for all of these. Are these a different formula or has Mac just increased their prices?

That’s what the press release said (I don’t remember pricing offhand, so I usually refer to the press release since I am getting descriptions from there), but it’s possible that they’re not synced up on pricing yet (likely the press release was written months prior).

Maybe it’s a consequence of reading your blog everyday, but I feel like I’ve seen these colors so much in the last few months. That said, it’s nice to see that all of these colors got high marks! Unfortunately, it seems like MAC has had as many misses as hits lately.

How I love Diva Antics for a rich, dark fall shade; except for the name! Because I already have Diva and Diva-ish, this could cause confusion while grabbing a shade on the fly. Why MAC overuses “Diva” in its lipstick names, I just don’t know? But it’s ridiculous!
Last year I tried in vain to nab Fashion Revival, now it’s back. However, having gotten UD After Dark, I no longer need to chase FR!

I really like Diva Antics. It looks like a red that would be right for those who are a bit afraid of reds. It looks very “easy to wear”.
I like Fashion Revival and My Inner Femme as well, I can’t wear colours like Self-Aware, though I like how it looks on your lips. I look dead when I try this type of colour.

Love Diva Antics – such a gorgeous colour that I would wear endlessly. It’s good to see MAC getting some decent ratings for their products too. The only colour I was disappointed in was Self Aware – a lot more pigment would have made this lipstick stunning. Way too pale.
However, I really like this range.

Hiya 🙂 How does Diva Antics compare (colorwise not just finish wise) to Studded Kiss and Charlotte? I’ve already used the swatch gallery but unlike you, I’m actually hopeless at noticing the differences. I’m only asking ‘cuz I’ve already got the other two (Studded Kiss, Charlotte) but since Diva Antics has a different finish and you gave it a high rating, I’m thinkin’ I just might pick it up.

Diva Antics (love that name) and Fashion Revival are gorgeous! Did you use lip liners with each of them? Your application is flawless! (I know you have a lot of practice lol) I missed FR previously, but I’m definitely grabbing it this time!

Flawless application it is, then. lol Would I be too much trouble if I asked if you had any recommendations for MAC liners to wear with Diva Antics and Fashion Revival? Thank you for your time! 🙂

Holy cow, your earrings are gorgeous. I know you’ve shared the link before, but would you mind telling me where you got them? Your whole makeup look in these pics is beautiful.

The collection just came online here in NL and I couldn’t resist buying Diva Antics. Hope it looks good on me 😀 (And that I don’t have any shades that are too similar)
