Product Rave: MAC Viva Glam I Lipstick and Lipglass

I’m reviewing two products in this post, MAC Viva Glam I Lipstick and Lipglass. The two products are sold together for USD30 (if it’s still sold anyways) and SGD70 (an extra SGD10 for the bag I still cannot believe it =/). Or you can buy them separately for USD15 and SGD30.

I don’t know why it looks so blue-red in most of the photos I’m wearing it in, but it’s not.

MAC Viva Glam I Lipstick is a matte brown red. It’s not the same retro formula as MAC Ruby Woo, so it’s nowhere near as drying, but it’s definitely not a moisturizing formula. It wore for almost eight hours the first time I wore it, which is crazy. (I drink lots of water so lip products tend to wear a shorter time on me than most people.)

MAC Viva Glam I Lipglass is the swatch in the middle of course.

MAC Viva Glam I Lipglass is a glossy muted red brown, slightly less red than the lipstick formula. It has a tacky texture, which is a feature of all MAC lipglasses, but it seems very slightly less tacky than the usual lipglass. It wore for about six hours on me, and I love that very much since lip glosses never stay on my lips.

I love both these products, and they are my new favourite day-reds. Viva Glam I is the perfect colour to use as an everyday red, as the brown tones mute it down, but keep it a beautiful strong – but never overwhelming – look.

tl;dr
Cost: SGD30 and USD15 per piece.
Does it work: The lipstick lasts eight hours on me, the lipgloss six hours. Both are wonderful; pigmented, long-wearing, and such pretty colours. As a matte, the lipstick texture is slightly dry and I’d recommend applying lip balm first, and then using a lip brush after.
Would I recommend it: Yes, yes yes. Viva Glam I is the perfect colour to use as an everyday red, as the brown tones mute it down, but keep it a beautiful strong – but never overwhelming – look. It’s a great choice if you’re scared off by bold reds like Sephora Always Red Lip Cream.

      The pouch looks pretty cheap, yeah. I was a little disappointed that I didn’t get it at first, but it really doesn’t compare to other ones.

      Aww. I missed you and your pretty looks too. ❤
