MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande

imageAriana Grande is one of the most recent celebrities to collaborate with MAC creating a new lipstick to add to the Viva Glam line where all the proceeds go to the MAC Aids charity. Ariana opted for a matte deep dark berry toned purple, it almost looks black in the bullet, not the typical colour I would have expected Ariana Grande to create but I’m very glad she did. It’s not like any other lipstick I’ve ever owned and although I have always wanted to delve into deeper berry/purple toned lipstick I have not as of yet. So, when I saw MAC had released the Ariana Grande Viva Glam lipstick I had to get it.

I haven’t worn the lipstick for a full day or night out yet, I’ve purely just tried it on when it arrived. Although, it’s a matte formulation, when I first applied the lipstick it appeared to have a lovely sheen which felt moisturising on the lips, however I’m not sure how this would wear throughout the day/night. From my first impressions I also noticed that the colour didn’t apply evenly all over my lips, I felt as though it applied opaque over most areas but not the entire lips. When applying the lipstick I also found it very difficult to apply it neatly, maybe because I’m not used to applying such a dark, bold colour but I think both of these problems could be resolved by using a lip liner first, I’ve currently got my eye on MAC Nightmoth lip liner.

Overall, I absolutely love the colour of Ariana Grande’s recent collaboration with MAC but I think it’s definitely one you need to pair with a lip liner for neat & opaque coverage.image

What do you think of the Viva Glam Ariana Grande lipstick?
