When I purchased a couple of goodies from MAC back in may, I was asked several times to make sure that I reviewed them. I do not know where the past 2 months have gone, but here is one of the promised lipstick swatches and reviews that was requested.
Viva Glam for those who don’t know is a line of lipsticks from MAC which donates all of it’s profits to the MAC Aids fund. They have a small permanent range of shades and one or two limited edition shades which run for a year before being replaced. My favourite lipstick ever is Viva Glam Cyndi which sadly was one of their yearly ones, but they have some really great shades in this line. And if you don’t like them, you’re basically donating to charity and getting a free lipstick for doing so – so feeling too bad about not liking it isn’t really a possibility (at least that’s how I justify it). But despite that joke, there really are some great shades in the line.
This year’s limited edition shade is Viva Glam Miley, unsurprisingly with the only Miley in the world – Miley Cyrus. The shade is a gorgeous bright cream fuschia pink in the amplified formula. Whilst I have a hundred (well not quite but a lot) of bright pink lipsticks – this one just looks different to the rest, and I can’t really put my finger down to why.
It’s creamy in formulation and feels quite moisturising on the lips and the finish has a glossy sheen without drying completely matte, but it does lock into place and lasts well without the need to reapply frequently, but isn’t as long lasting as a matte.
Have you tried Miley’s creation? What are your favourites from the Viva Glam line?
