MAC Matte Lipstick: Deeply Adored: Review/Swatch/LOTD

There are a few lipsticks which scream “RETRO” and “CLASSY” and most of the lipsticks from the MAC Marilyn Monroe Collection do justice to these two words. But the best of the lot hands down, has to be MAC Deeply Adored. If Marilyn was still alive she would jump up in joy seeing such a color! 

Deeply Adored is or rather was priced 1050 INR when the collection was launched. The way MAC has increased the price of their cosmetics I won’t be surprised if this is priced 1200 in the next collection it features in!

Deeply Adored is a deep red based brownish maroon. The red undertone is pretty strong. This color is universally flattering and would suit any skintone irrespective of the undertone. This color, similar to MAC Ruby Woo makes my teeth look white which is a huge plus point!!

The pigmentation is as good as Scarlet Ibis and one swipe is enough for full coverage. Even on pigmented lips a swipe of this works well enough to give full coverage. While wearing such colors, I usually prefer using a lip brush since precise application is a must for these dark deep colors in my opinion.

I’ve spoken enough about the formulation of the recently launched matte lipsticks by MAC. You can read about them here and here. Deeply Adored falls into this category and is a pleasure to wear. I keep reaching out for this more often than I thought I would. Wearing it as a lipstain with a winged eyeliner is a classic combination which I sport most of the time these days. 

Deeply Adored stays on my lips for about 6 to 7 hours after which the intensity of the color comes down to a slight yet even stain.

Final Word: LOVE LOVE LOVE the color, formulation and staying power. This lipstick is one of a kind and of course, it is a “deeply adored” lipstick in my vanity!!
