MAC DIVA - the perfect autumn/winter red?

I've been very lucky this time with my Mac purchase as it turns out that my friend gets discount (jammy cow, I know!), so she treat me to the lovelllly shade 'Diva' that i've had my eye on for a while now since a #bbloggers chat where it was recommended to me... The first thing I did was google the swatches and I fell in love instantly. It's the shade i've been looking for for a long time - the perfect deep red. I recall doing a little stupid dance anyway after seeing the swatches...

The photos above haven't been edited (because why would I do that when you need to see the true colour?), so please mind my dingy room. I would have loved to have taken the photo before I used it, but I was far too excited to wait, so sorry about that too...

'Diva' is a matte lipstick with quite the staying power. After applying, I had my lunch and stuff and there was no need for any touch ups which I was very impressed with, especially with it being a deep shade.  It applies really nicely as well which was also a relief - I have a few deep lipsticks and a red colour from Topshop and they're all absolute pains to apply, but the difference here is that Mac, as usual, have the loveliest, creamiest consistencies, so i've had no problems at all in that department.

With flash

Without flash... On a slow shutter speed (hence the blurriness -.-) 

I don't think the flash is giving you the best perception of the shade, I think it's better portrayed in the 'without flash' image, personally - so as you can see it's a gorgeous vampy shade and I think it would pretty much suit anybody. It's quite flattering, I feel good wearing it anyway if that counts?
So, that's all for my crazy rambling about 'Diva' and as you can probably tell, I recommend it! What do you think of it?
