MAC is quickly becoming one of my most favourite make up brands. I love not only the high quality make up, the huge range of lipsticks and their sleek black packaging, but to add to the mix they also work closely with some highly worthy charities. MAC have collaborated with Miley Cyrus and have created a Viva Glam lipstick and a lip gloss, the proceeds of which, minus tax, are going to a charity to help women, men and children who suffer with aids. It is a great cause, and also a great justification to buy a brand new lipstick, an opportunity I struggled to pass!
Viva Glam is an amazingly bright Barbie pink which is highly pigmented and has great longevity. The colour really complements my skin tone, which is a fair/medium complexion, however I can honestly see this shade looking amazing on anyone! It also makes my teeth look super white which is always a bonus! It has a slight sheen to its finish which is great in my opinion as it is very easy to apply in one sweep and I also find that it is slightly hydrating on the lips as opposed to matte or drying, which is something I am not overly keen on in a lip product. Usually I will always apply a small amount of lip balm be applying lipsticks, however I find that Viva Glam can be applied straight on to the lips.
I am a huge fan of the packaging as I love MAC lipsticks and their sophisticated black bullet-style casing. However, I am particularly fond on the Viva Glam case which has a thin Barbie pink line where the lid meets the base, and MAC is written in the same colour. Once the lid is removed the inside of the case is a bold Barbie pink with Miley Cyrus' signature written in a bold black across the side. This limited edition is such a beauty to add to my collection and it is such a winner in my eyes!
