Feels like I’ve waited too long before finally buying both MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus lipstick and lipglass. I know, I know! I’m really late to the party. While everyone else had been raving about this Viva Glam release, I have been stopping myself from buying it online. Big mistake! Well, not totally. It was a good thing that I still had a chance to buy it at my local MAC counter.
The timing is also wonderful because it’s already summer here and I want to wear hot pink lipsticks like this during the hot summer months. The only thing that I don’t like during these months is that the heat causes my lipsticks to sweat. You will definitely notice it in the pictures of the lipstick. But lipstick sweating aside, I’m still glad that I bought both MAC Viva Glam Miley lipstick and lipglass.
MAC VIVA GLAM MILEY CYRUS
Wham! Bam! VIVA GLAM! Superstar Miley Cyrus is ready to make noise as this iconic campaign’s 2015 spokesperson. The global pop phenomenon kicks off her VIVA GLAM with two surefire hits: a super-sexy hot pink Lipstick and matching Lipglass with sparkling pearl shimmer. Every cent of the selling price goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.
VIVA GLAM MILEY I LIPSTICK
Miley Cyrus’s shade of VIVA GLAM Lipstick. Her super-sexy hot pink hue in M∙A∙C’s iconic Lipstick formula. Every cent of the selling price goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Limited-edition packaging features Miley’s signature.
MAC Viva Glam Miley lipstick is described as a hot pink color. Having an Amplified Creme formula, it is very creamy and the shade is so vibrant.
It has the same signature vanilla scent that is common with MAC lipsticks. I personally love its fragrance because it isn’t too over-powering. Plus, there is no taste even if I accidentally lick my lips.
I love the packaging of Viva Glam lipsticks which has the signature of the person MAC collaborated with for the collection. In this case, it’s Miley Cyrus. I’m not really a fan of hers, but I am a fan of her lipstick. 😀
You could really notice the sweating in the picture above, so you can imagine how disappointed I was when I got home and saw how bad it was. But I am to blame because it was my fault, really. The day I bought these items, my husband and I decided to dine al fresco style to enjoy the summer heat. We forgot that doing so will cause sweating to the lipstick I just bought. 🙁
Anyways, after taking these pictures, I just wiped the moisture away and all is well. The important thing is that I finally have it in my collection. 😉
Viva Glam Miley lipstick is a bright and cool-toned, medium hot pink. It has a beautiful sheen which makes it wonderful even when worn alone. It is pigmented and is already semi opaque with 1 swipe. But you can build up the color with more swipes.
The lipstick applies like a dream without any tugging. It doesn’t settle into lip lines nor does it feather. Even with it’s creamy texture, I find that it doesn’t slide around and does not transfer much.
MAC Viva Glam Miley lipstick feels light on the lips. It isn’t drying at all, but I don’t find it hydrating either. So if you have extremely dry lips, I would recommend for you to use a moisturizing lip balm beforehand, and also to exfoliate the lips before even applying this lipstick on your lips.
Worn alone, it lasts around 4 to 5 hours on my lips and leaves a nice stain. However, after eating and drinking, the color left is a bit uneven, so you would definitely want to reapply it.
VIVA GLAM MILEY I LIPGLASS
Miley Cyrus’s shade of VIVA GLAM Lipglass. Her super-sexy hot pink hue with sparkling pearl shimmer in M∙A∙C’s much-loved Lipglass formula. Wear it alone or with a Lipstick. Every cent of the selling price goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Limited-edition packaging features Miley’s signature.
MAC Viva Glam Miley Lipglass is described as a hot pink lipgloss. It has sparkling pearl which won me over. I wouldn’t have bought it had it not been for the sparkles. Plus of course, it’s for a good cause! 😉
MAC Lipglasses are too sticky for my taste, so I always tend to skip them. I love my Chanel Rouge Allure glosses better because they are not tacky on the lips. But I decided to buy this one anyways, especially because it is the matching lipgloss for the Viva Glam Miley lipstick.
The lipglass also has the same signature vanilla scent as with the matching lipstick, which is not really noticeable once applied on the lips. As with the lipstick, it also has no icky taste. The packaging of the Viva Glam Miley Lipglass also has Miley’s signature.
When looking at the tube of Viva Glam Miley lipglass, it looks like a really pigmented lipgloss. It’s also very shimmery just like Chanel Crazy Fuchsia.
But when swatched, it’s actually sheerer than I thought it would be. In the arm swatch below, you’ll notice that it’s more of a light medium pink. I don’t like wearing it alone because I have pigmented lips. So the only use I have for it is for topping it over matching hot pink lipsticks. Below, you can see how beautiful the lipstick and lipglass combination is!
Surprisingly, MAC Viva Glam Miley lipglass does not feel too tacky nor gritty on my lips. Unlike the other MAC lipglasses I’ve tried, this is not as hair-sticky. It’s also not drying on the lips and even feels moisturizing.
Worn over the matching Viva Glam lipstick, it lasts around 2 to 3 hours on my lips before the shine is completely gone. The shimmers stay on, and still gives the lipstick added glam.
I love how MAC Viva Glam Miley lipstick alone looks on my lips. It’s a very gorgeous hot pink lipstick that’s perfect for summer. It can also be toned down if you don’t want it as bright like how I did in the pictures above (left side).
If you want it bright and vibrant, though, it would look awesome topped with the matching lipglass. Especially when the sparkles catch the light, it really looks beautiful.
I bought both MAC Viva Glam Miley I lipstick and lipglass for Php1,000 each from MAC in Glorietta 4.
If you still haven’t bought either lipstick or lipglass, they’re still available as of posting. But you should hurry because both are Limited Edition items.
