Brand Name: MAC

Lipstick Colour: VIVA Glam I

Lipcote Rating: 5/5


It’s been 10 years since MAC released it’s first VIVA Glam lipstick shade, with proceeds helping the MAC Aids fund. It therefore seemed fitting to review the original shade ‘VIVA Glam I’- a deep wine red that is advertised as ‘universal in its appeal and glamour’.

One of the most trustworthy brands in the makeup industry, MAC certainly know how to deliver great shades that suit many skintones, with this colour being no exception. The cranberry shade has ultimate depth and provides one of the most impressive reds we’ve used from them. Already esteemed as a cult classic along with the Ruby Woo and Lady Danger reds of the MAC family, this particular version will give your pout a luxurious merlot stain, like a fine wine. The blue undertone helps keep teeth looking white and saves this darker tone from draining your complexion like others sometimes can.

We’re still well and truly in love with this wintry shade, and could see it being paired with a sleek black blazer jacket and casual ripped jeans with heels for a sexy, smart, casual look day to night. The bullet itself has the comforting sweet, signature smell of the brand and with a couple of layers and a teeny swipe of Lipcote, lasts throughout the day securely. This shade brings all the diva like glamour to your life as it should, and teamed with a simple flick of eyeliner or some fawny brown shadow, VIVA Glam I means serious business.

The packaging has a candy pink rim instead of the usual silver, and a red logo on the outside to stand out from other MAC lippys you may have collected. Another 5 star formula, and one we will surely go back to time and time again! X
