REVIEW | MAC VIVA GLAM MILEY


The wait is over, MAC Viva Glam Miley has now found its way into my MAC lipstick collection. The newest edition to the VIVA GLAM collection is the good girl, turned bad Miley Cyrus. Miley states that she was glad to hop on board on the Viva train since she, herself promotes individuality and helping others break out from their shell. When MAC announced their newest VIVA GLAM campaign, I knew I had to jump on board and grab a Limited Edition. For a limited edition, I was surprised that the price stayed the same. I did not hesitate to pay the average price of a normal MAC lipstick since it is for a great cause - every penny will be donated to the MAC AIDS FUND.





As you can see, both packaging has (like all the other VIVA GLAM Celebrity Collaborations) the infamous metallic red signature. Unlike Viva Glam Rihanna's bullet, Miley has it's bog-standard black case with a red strip.









The former Hannah Montana star has collaborated with MAC to launch an amazing Barbie, bubblegum blue-toned pink. The hot-pink shade is suitable for all skin tones since it has hints of cool-blue undertones that will make your teeth appear brighter and whiter. Since the lipstick is an amplified finish, not only will the lipstick be highly pigmented, but will keep your lips nourished throughout the day. The lipstick by itself is definitely a head-turner in the summer months. The colour is quite bold and vibrant, in my opinion, I feel the lipstick is still wearable throughout the day as well as on night-outs. To each their own depending how daring you are.  


Now comes the lipglass. This amazing gloss, chock-full of sparkly flecks of silver and blue glitter which entails compliments the cool-toned lipstick. The lipglass isn't one to apply on its own - alone, it is a sheer, barely there pink gloss. The staying-powever however, is incredible. The sticky finish allows the lipglass to cling on longer leaving your lips kissable for up to 8 hours.







In conclusion, I am over-the-moon with my purchase of this seasons VIVA GLAM launch. The products worn separately are both as gorgeous as each other, on the other hand, when both are worn at the same time, it is #LipGameStrong. The lipglass definitely gives the lipstick extra-dimension, extra-fullness and that little bit of extra oomph which results to a super lustrous and glass-like texture. The combination of an amplified hot pink merged with a cool-toned glitter gloss is unbelievably girly, flirty and damn right gorgeous! An unmistakable  staple for Spring/Summer 2015.


Mac Viva Glam Miley will be launching for their SS15 collection in the UK*

  5. I picked up the lipstick and I love it! It's such a great color! Debating if I need the lipglass, I'm not much of a lip gloss person.
