MAC Pro Longwear Dear Diary - Review, Photos, Swatches

MAC Pro Longwear in Dear Diary is a bright fuchsia pink with a very subtle hints of purple undertones. It's warmer than Candy Yum Yum so it won't wash you out. It has creamy finish yet dries out semi-matte.I'm a little confused and disappointed with this tube though. I expected more opacity and longer hours of wearability. It is opaque, but I have to really apply more to reach the opacity that I want. Maybe I'm just used to the classic MAC (matte, amplified creme and satin) lipstick quality, but being this is my 2nd tube of a Pro Longwear lipstick ( I have Extended Play), I'm really surprised that it didn't reach my expectations. MAC Quick Sizzle and NARS Schiap are much pinker (and darker) while MAC Pink Pigeon is a little pinker. Dear Diary came from the MAC Beth Ditto Collection.

PROS: The color is awesome! It's the kind of pink that'll work on most skin tones. It's also a little creamy so it won't dry out your lips. For the opacity, it's buildable. It also has a decent hours of wear.
CONS: It's a limited edition shade, but I think it could be easily duped. I had to swipe it at least 3X to get the opacity that I want, and it's not as long wearing as the matte lipsticks from MAC.


 I will repurchase when I don't find something better.
