Review: MAC Cosmetics Lipstick in Fashion Revival


Ever since uploading my November Hits and Oh God NO’s people have been bombarding me with questions about the lipstick I was wearing. And although I’m recording a tutorial on that same look later today, I still wanted to give you a closer look at the show stopper…

MAC Fashion Revival Lipstick ($16.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “deep raspberry.” It’s a dark, slightly muted raspberry with semi-matte finish. It was part of the MAC The Matte Lip Collection, I’ve heard that some counters/stores still carry this mini-collection, so you better run over there real quick, haha.

The coverage on this one is outstanding. I only needed two layers to get an opaque coverage and even color application. The consistency is soft and creamy, yet still very controllable, it’s a very easy lipstick to work with. In total, the lipstick lasted for almost 6-7 hours on me, and left a pretty stain as it started wearing down. It was neither drying nor hydrating.

Why must MAC always make the good ones limited edition? Whisper of Gilt Extra Dimension Skin Finish and Superb Extra Dimension Skin Finish are just to name a few. Fashion Revival is one to add to that list. I am in love with this lipstick. It’s a creamy, opaque, easy to work with, and just damn gorgeous raspberry dream. It’s a show-stopper, and I wish I would’ve gotten at least 5 back-ups.


  • Soft and creamy consistency

  • Opaque coverage

  • Very easy to use


  • Limited edition

  3. Christa says:

    Oh deze is super mooi! Hoe zou je deze vergelijken met Diva? Heb het idee dat ze erg op mekaar lijken maar toch ook weer niet… Haha :)

  4. Nancy says:

    Wauw, ik ga meteen op zoek!

    Hoi Nikkie,

    Zoals zo velen ben ik meteen verkocht nadat ik jou zag met deze lippenstift! Als ik op de website van MAC (NL) kijk zie ik dat deze inderdaad uitverkocht is :( Ben je toevallig recent nog in een MAC store geweest en weet je dat ze ‘m daar nog wel op voorraad hebben? IK MOET HEM HEBBEN AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARHGG haha!

    Wauw, wat een prachtige kleur <3

  7. Sarah says:

    Aahhh, hij is zoo mooi! Ik baal echt nog steeds ontzettend dat ik te laat was om hem te kopen… ik heb stille hoop dat het een permanente kleur wordt!

  8. Mariëlle says:

    Echt een HELE gave kleur, wauw!

  9. Hedda says:

    Prachtig. Maar wat stom altijd die limited edtions :(
    Ik denk dat hij meer op Rebel dan op Diva lijkt..

    hi nikkie,
    the lippie is not limited edition. they came out in fact to join their brother ‘heroine’. :)

  11. Aurélie says:

    I just bought Tribalist and I first thought it would be that kind of dark red but it’s actually rather a brown/purple/red color, which I like but I think I would love this one better ! Anyways, it looks amazing on you, as always :D xx

  12. Kirsten says:

    Oh my gooood, heaven! :D lovely!

  13. Julie says:

    Wauw, wauw en nog eens wauw! :-O

  14. Luna says:

  15. Lucinda says:

    I want it, I need it, I can’t find it…. *cries in the corner*. xxx Lucinda

  16. Jolien Verschaeve says:

    It’s like, everything you review, I neeeeed to have.
    Woman, you bring the worst out of me.

  17. Debbie says:

    Ahhh! I love this colour so much. I wear it with MAC Beet lipliner. It looks AMAZING! I hope they make this a permanent shade!

  18. Tanja says:

    I got this two months ago and blogged about it as well, it’s easily my most-viewed post ever! :D It is a gorgeous shade though and I love that lipstick. And hey, maybe they’ll make it permanent some day in the future, they’ve done it before – think Heroine for example! :)

  19. Marjoleine says:

    I need it, it’s so pretty! <3

  20. Bronte says:

    I have this lipstick, but I feel it needs a liner – do you use one? Which colour?

  21. I absolutely LOVE this lipstick and I’m so glad I was able to get my hands on it. I can NEVER get my hands on any LE MAC products, especially not lippies. I’m still crying because I don’t have Whisper of Gilt and I need them to make it permanent. I think there’s enough consumer demand!
