MAC Monday: MACnificent Me - Deep Love Lipstick Swatches & Review23:56
Purchased by me/Contains affiliate links
Just a quickie MAC Monday today, featuring one of the lipsticks from the recent MACnificent Me collection: Deep Love. Recently promoted alongside four other lipstick shades in this bumper collection, Deep Love was actually originally a permanent colour that met the chopping block in 2008. Later, it was the working name for what eventually became Frank N Furter (from the Rocky Horror collection), prompting fans to anticipate its return - it only took seven years, but here it is, albeit in limited edition form!
Swatched on bare skin under daylight bulbs: Fashion Revival, Deep Love
Fashion Revival is the only other shade I own from this collection, a deep raspberry matte which originally launched in last year's Matte Lip collection. You can find more swatches and a full review here. Both shades are still available on the US MAC website and I spotted Deep Love still on counter at my local MAC store too.
Deep Love is described as a 'deep brown wine' with a matte finish. This is what chocolate covered cherries would look like as a lipstick, a rich, warm shade that I like much more than I thought I would on my skintone. The colour pay off is mostly opaque - having slightly more slip and sheen than most of MAC's mattes, I found it to be a touch patchy as a result. This wasn't really noticeable from a normal viewing distance though. Deep Love wore for five hours on me and did not feather, but it was mildly drying.
What I liked:
- Wears for five hours
- Applies smoothly
- Mostly opaque colour pay off
- Does not feather, bleed or migrate
- Slightly patchy
- Mildly drying
