Almost every year since I started blogging, the first makeup review in the new year is a MAC lipstick 😀 Continuing with this tradition, here’s my review on the MAC Viva Glam I lipstick.
Also, in case you don’t already know, every time you buy a MAC Viva Glam product, the sale price goes towards the MAC Aids Fund, which helps people with AIDS.
Read on for the review of MAC Viva Glam I..
Price: ~Rs. 1500
Packaging: The case is the classic MAC lipstick case, albiet with red accents instead of the usual silver.
Swatch: MAC describes Viva Glam I as an ‘Intense brownish blue-red’
My take on MAC Viva Glam I: MAC Viva Glam I is a permanent shade of the MAC Viva Glam range. It is a blue-based red, but is not as cool toned as Riri Woo/ Ruby Woo. It has a prominent earthy undertone to it too, which makes it flattering for all skin tones alike. The finish is matte, but I find this one to be not as drying as the other MAC Matte lipsticks that I’ve tried. It is definitely more comfortable to wear than the usual matte formula. The staying power is a good 4-5 hours on me, after which it fades with a reddish stain.
Verdict: One of the most universally flattering reds from MAC, this one is a must-have shade! Love it!
