This is my very first review for a MAC Product.
So today I start my review with one of the MAC Lipstick in Matte range ” MAC Viva Glam 3″
Lipstick Category : Matte
What’s special bout MAC VIVA Glam:
Every cent of the selling price of VIVA GLAM is donated to the M·A·C AIDS Fund..
The shade I am reviewing today is MATTE VIVA GLAM 3 ,
Viva Glam III is a muted brownish plum shade which is not exactly brown but more on pink with brown undertones.Its a matte finish lipstick which is very smooth and moisturizing on lips. It has awesome pigmentation with a beautiful finish in just one swipe.This shade looks good on wheatish to dark skin tone.These lipsticks are not transfer proof hence transfer a lot.
1500 INR for 3 gms
The packaging of MAC lipsticks is really cute, travel friendly and unique and most of the brands are coming up with similar packaging.Viva Glam series has red case which is different from other series.
Pigmentation and Texture:
These lip creams are super duper pigmented .One swipe is enough for a perfect look.When applied they are creamy, but within few minutes of application they settle down to perfect matte .But they are not transfer proof .These lipsticks do not settle in fine lines of lips.
Lips do not feel heavy at all, you wont feel that there is something applied on lips.They are moisturizing and not at all drying hence do not need any lip balm application underneath .
Staying power :
The staying power of these lipsticks is around 5-6 hours .However need touch ups post drink and food breaks.
Since the shade is on darker side it gave me a vampy look. 😦
Hence it was a NO NO shade for me .But it would suit wheatish to dark tones.
Earlier I was always skeptical to buy MAC products online if I would be receiving original ones.Since they are bit on higher end.
But there ‘s a great news NYKAA has now launched exclusive MAC products in India .The link is mentioned below.
If you looking for moisturizing plum undertone dark shade this would be a nice shade to go with .However I would recommend a trial before purchasing the shade since it might not go well with all skin tones,as it dint go well with me .
Since It did not suit me I would not repurchase this shade but would definitely try other shades.
