MAC Viva Glam Special Edition Review

I adore lipsticks so much. Whatever it is, whether glossy, matte, shimmery, or anything else, I’ll try it. I’m not sure when I first started to like wearing lipstick, but the only thing I can recall is the happiness I had when I looked in the mirror and saw my lips painted in a variety of vibrant hues. Anyway, I’ve started to notice MAC’s Viva Glam Special Edition matte lipstick, which is incredibly lovely.

Since May 1, 2019, this lipstick has been on the market and was created in partnership with Winnie Harlow. It costs $19.50 and has a rich brownish blue-red tint. MAC claims that Viva Glam was established in 1994, during the height of the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Since then, MAC cosmetics has successfully increased the sales of Viva Glam products by collaborating with well-known artists including Sia, Mylie Cyrus, Mary J. Blige, Elton John, and Ricky Martin. Every bit of the Viva Glam lipsticks’ sales price will be given to groups that support the rights and health of men and women of all ages and ethnicities.

Yes, I am aware that MAC released this back when they were celebrating their 25th anniversary, but I have just recently had an opportunity to try it. However even if it’s a bit too late, I’m still glad that I was able to discover and test it.

Actually, I just discovered that the proceeds from the sale of this product will be donated to a worthy cause, which made me very glad. This one was selected only for its dazzling packaging, but it has since come to signify a lot to me. At that part, I want to applaud MAC. Here’s what you should swatch and wear:

This product’s velvety texture across my lips is simply divine. I’ve never felt a more silky substance on my lips. It feels great just to wear it. That is what I appreciate most about Mac cosmetics. My lips perceives it as real magic. Furthermore, it is so light that I can hardly know it is there. 

I looooove the color of this lipstick. It definitely brightened my face. Even though it is matte, this lipstick glides easily on the lips and is easy to remove with micellar water. The only thing I don’t like about this lipstick is that it makes my lips dry, and due of the color, I can’t wear it every day in Qatar. Above all, it’s good to try, even if it’s rather expensive, because the proceeds will be donated to a charitable organization.

To those of you who enjoy lipsticks, I want to give it my highest recommendation.😊😊
