Mac Viva Glam V

Hey All

Sorry for the lack of posts from me last week. It was my birthday on the weekend and I hadn’t got around to writing any as I’d been with the family and then left for a few days away with the OH and his family to celebrate his brother’s graduation.

When my family were down to celebrate my birthday my brother’s wife wanted to take the opportunity to visit a Mac counter. I didn’t plan on buying anything as I was holding out to buy the Cool Neutral palette but was waiting for a decent beauty care offer (which there is now by the way £10 worth of points if you spend £50!) but at the counter I spotted the viva glam lipsticks and was drawn to this neutral shade. First of apologies as I’ve not got any swatches on the lips but the day after I bought it coldsores have taken over.





The Mac Viva Glam range comes in the normal box but the lipsticks instead of silver around the bullet and holding the lipstick it’s red. I quite like this as it’s the only Viva Glam one I have it’ll be easy to spot in my collection. If you weren’t aware Mac donate the full price of the lipstick minus VAT to charity for the Viva Glam range so you can buy a lipstick and feel like you’re helping people. L has the Viva Glam Nicki Minaj which you can see here.

Mac describes it as a neutral pink. I’d say it’s a touch more neutral brown. I think this is the first lustre finish in my collection but I’m actually a fan. In the neutral shades it gives the lips a healthy shine of colour.

With coldsores all finally healed I can add some pictures! I’ve really been reaching for this lipstick lately. I love it for everyday and find my lips look plumped with it on.




Have you tried the Viva Glam range? What’s your favourite Mac lipstick?

    This is a great color and one I don't actually have. The only Viva Glam colors I have are the ones from Rihanna, Miley and Nicki x

    I'm not a big lipstick fan, especially ones with a lustre finish, but I have to admit this is pretty. Still looking for the perfect red though x
