M.A.C has been re-promoting the M.A.C Viva Glam 1 The Original range that consists of the matte lipstick and lipglass. I am not much of a lipgloss person hence picked up the most flattering deep red lipstick ever, Viva Glam 1.
Rs. 1190, permanent, available at all MAC Stores.
It comes in a black and red combo colored packaging, a welcome change from the regular matte black packaging.
It falls under the matte finish category, hence extremely pigmented. It covers any lip darkness in one swipe. It looks rich and opaque on the lips and is universally flattering. It is non-drying, glides smoothly and stays put for 4-5 hours.
It is a deep red that goes well with all outfits, be it western or ethnic. It is one of my favorite reds ever, quite unique in my collection. It is not blue based like the Ruby Woo, RiRi Woo or Russian Red that are a lil difficult to pull off on a daily basis. This is the most easily wearable red lipstick.
The price hike is disappointing but one lipstick would last atleast 2 years if used frequenty so no regrets.
I would call it a must – have. I am wearing Viva Glam 1 in the below picture, taken on the day of my baby shower.
