MAC Viva Glam I Lipstick Review and Swatches

 
 



Hello my dears! It's been quite a while since I've posted but I'm going to try to get back into the swing of things with this beaut -- MAC Viva Glam I!

Currently MAC is repromoting VGI with the original spokeswoman... the one, the only, Ru Paul!!! I've been meaning to review it for quite some time but after seeing the promotional images I decided to get on it!

Viva Glam I is a matte burgundy red. It has the slightest amount of brown which makes it a bit more vampy, yet wearable at the same time. I find the formula very creamy for a matte, but I have no issues with bleeding or feathering. The wear time is superb at around 6 hours without eating. I typically wear it without a lip liner, but MAC Brick pairs beautifully with VGI, while MAC Burgundy Lip Pencil will create a more vampy look.

100% of the purchase price of all Viva Glam lip products go to the MAC Aids Fund!

Have you tried Viva Glam I or any of the other Viva Glam products?

    1. I would say Ruby Woo is a pretty neutral red... for some reason it always looks slightly more orange in pictures. Unfortunately I don't have anymore MAC reds to compare it too -- I misplaced my Russian Red the last time I wore it. Here is my post comparing Ruby Woo and Russian Red, you can compare the swatches if that helps :)

  5. Some of those photos are rather cringe worthy if you ask me, BUT it is a nice red :-)
