MAC Liquid Lipcolor Divine Divine: Review and Swatches
Out of the many liquid lipsticks available in the market, MAC has one of the most expensive liquid lipcolor. I have 3 shades of liquid lipsticks from MAC and today I will be sharing my experience with ‘MAC Liquid Lipcolor Divine Divine’.
Like all the other lipstick formulas from MAC, their liquid lipstick collection too, has different finishes, The shade Divine Divine belongs to their Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor range. While purchasing this shade, I did not think too much about the finish as I loved the color so much that I just wanted to try it.
Unfortunately, I bought the lipcolor online without actually seeing how it looks on me, and to be honest, the shade does not look the way I expected.
Price: INR 1900 for 5 ml of product (BUY HERE)
For those who prefer timeless glamour to all-out flash, matte reigns supreme. M.A.C introduces a twist on this classic texture with robustly saturated shades of Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolour. Whichever shade you choose, all promise one thing: a splash of colour in a liquid-suede finish that is impossible to forget.
– Long wearing, 8 hours.
– Color wears evenly and smoothly for 8 hours.
– Provides stay true color.
– Non-bleeding and non-feathering
I love the way this lipcolor is packaged. The tube of the lipcolor is cylindrical with a regular black colored dome-shaped cap. Regular MAC lipsticks are all black which makes them difficult to get recognized in a bunch of lipsticks, but these liquid lip color have a transparent tube. The color of the liquid lipstick can be seen easily. The packaging seems to be a thick plastic and is travel- friendly. The applicator of the lipcolor is also designed in a way that it picks just the right amount of color.
My Experience with MAC Liquid Lipcolor Divine Divine:
MAC describes Divine Divine as a light creamy pink lipcolor and it looks exactly the same. When swatched on hand, the color looks beautiful. But when actually applied on to the lips, the color does not look good on me at all, especially with a full face of makeup. Without a full face, the lipcolor looks comparatively decent.
As I have already bought this lipstick, I have tried several other ways to work with the color and the best one is to apply a darker color lip liner over this liquid lipstick. This makes the lipcolor look pretty and gives it some kind of dimension.
The lipcolor is easy to apply but applies patchy in the first coat. 2-3 swipes are required to get an even color. The lipcolor being a matte liquid lipstick is drying and applying so many coats makes it feel even more drying. Moisturizing your lips before applying this formula does help in reducing the dryness.
The lipcolor might not seem too promising until now, but it has an amazing staying power. The formula is completely transfer proof which makes it last even longer.
Though the lipcolor does stay for a long time, if you ever consider reapplying the color in the mid of the day, always do so by first completely removing the first layer. This formula does not work good on reapplication.
I am sure that I am not going to buy this particular color again for myself, but I am kind of satisfied with the formula and I do love the other two shades I have. So, I would suggest Mac liquid lipcolor only to those ladies, who are on the fairer side of the skin color and who are willing to spend 1900 bucks on a lipstick.
