MAC Dreaming Dahlia is my first choice from MAC Flower Fantasy collection. One of my friend picked it up for me from Mumbai MAC store, before it launched here in Kolkata. How cool is that ^_^. Therefore this is the most waited lipstick review on MAC A Fantasy of Flower collection Lipstick -Dreaming Dahlia. Let’s see how it does it score.
A dream world bursting with brilliant blooms of colour. A stunning bouquet of shades draws you in with hypnotic movement as a magical fantasy emerges glowing with a floral essence. Rose-coloured hues burst from lustrous Lipstick, while a heavenly hybrid of Mineralize Eye Shadows blossoms with natural splendour. Cheeks are kissed with the graceful glow of Mineralize Blush, and vivid pops of colour flourish as Fluidline and Nail Lacquer bring this flowery fantasia to life.
Price: 1190 INR OR $16 USD.

I absolutely agree with MAC- Dreaming Dahlia is a sheer red-coral with luster finish. MAC dreaming dahlia is a shade to be called a perfect summer shade. It has got mild gold shimmers in it which is not noticeable on lips. I found Dreaming Dahlia is slightly sheerer than MAC heavenly hybrid (both picked together). Although it has luster finish but gives 3 hours of wear time on me with munching.
Therefore you can get more wear time without any mini meal break. The shade is truly summery light coral which lean towards red –orange on multiple quotes. I wont say its 100% true to bullet colour but definitely a shade which you can rock your day as well as night time. Dreaming dahlia gives sheer to medium to buildable pigmentation on multiple swipes. This is more flattering shade and easy to use kind of colour among other shades from this collection.
Dreaming Dahlia gives sheer to semi opaque glossy finish. Keeps lips well hydrated and moisturized. Very smooth and creamy kind of texture. Glide on lips like a dream. The only one thing I noticed about this shade is that it tends to bleed slightly which is why it’s very important to line your lips before applying such lipsticks. It leaves a sweet tint behind after fading and does keep my lips moisturized for next couple of hours.
What I like about MAC “Dreaming Dahlia” Lustre lipstick:
- Beautiful sheer to buildable coral shade.
- Summer special.
- Creamy and glossy finish.
- Gives Sheer to medium coverage.
- Does not dry out lips but keep moisturized enough.
- Very subtle golden shimmer which is not noticeable.
- Mac signature -Vanilla Scent J
- Lasting power is quite less than Heavenly hybrid (another shade from this collection) but still last on me more than 3 hours.
- Will suit many skin tones. But I fear it won’t show up on deep skin tone much because of less pigmentation.
What I don’t like about MAC “Dreaming Dahlia” Lustre lipstick:
- The price is a pain now L
- Do not smudging, although it transfers but less. Wish it comes in some other finish.
- Does not survive any heavy meal L
For Pigmentation I would give 3.75/5 but rest are okay!
Overall Rating: 4/5.
Verdict:MAC dreaming dahlia is my favorite among all. Sheer to medium coral shade, a perfect summer combo.Wearable both day and night. I don’t know if you can still manage to lay your hands on this but if you get a chance DO NOT MISS!
