…………….deals with everything feminine, make up and beauty being an integral part

It goes without saying that MAC offers a whole plethora of shades to choose from when it comes to make-up. Last weekend I happened to grab this beauty, which has swept me off my feet and yes, I am in love with it.

The Shade: Mac “Viva Glam 1” Lipstick

The Color: A very beautiful, warm red with brown and orange undertones. Easy to pull off and would suit all complexions. A versatile red, If you want to start out with reds, this is definitely worth a try.

The Texture: It belongs to the “matte” range of MAC lipsticks, but is not drying at all. Feels very light on lips as though you have nothing on .

The Lasting ability: Awesome, stays put up with eating and drinking for upto 6 hours and more. Lasts whole day, ideal corporate red :). If you want to wear red to a corporate event, this is it. Very classy and stays on the whole day.

The Pigmentation: Goes opaque in a singe swipe, if you apply more it would make it look cakey and thick.

My take : A red , which is droolworthy and above all easy to carry. If true red scares you, you definitely gonna try this πŸ™‚ . Β The pigmentation can be built up, but a single swipe is enough to give full coverage. Also can be applied as a stain with a lip brush. Tends to bleed, but if a lip liner is applied after applying the lipstick, then it is sealed. Lasts on and on, I wore it last yesterday, and it lasted on me for about 8 hours with lunch in between. Overall, a lovely red and definitely a must have.

Below is the full look. If you want a tutorial on the eye look, do drop in the comments, I shall post it on my upcoming posts πŸ™‚

Price: INR 990

Summary: A must have red with warm undertones. Would suit a wide variety of skin tones. No cons for this :). As it is matte, it might be drying on dry lips, but a lip balm would solve it.

Product Score : 5/5
