Following the steps of Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Christina Aguilera, Nicki Minaj and many other respectable artists, the newest MAC Viva Glam campaign features another cool singing lady as a spokesperson, the unique Miley Cyrus!
Here’s how MAC presents the collection: Wham! Bam! VIVA GLAM! Superstar Miley Cyrus is ready to make noise as this iconic campaign’s 2015 spokesperson. The global pop phenomenon kicks off her VIVA GLAM with two surefire hits: a super-sexy hot pink Lipstick and matching Lipglass with sparkling pearl shimmer. Every cent of the selling price goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.
Since it’s a Viva Glam campaign, it classicaly consists of a lipglass and a lipstick.
- The Lipstick is described as a “hot pink” and it’s an amplified. Amplified lipsticks are usually opaque and creamy, not as drying as a matte, but longlasting.
It’s a perfect colour for spring! It’s an hot pink with a neutral/warm undertone. I love it! On me it lasted around six hours without eating. After three hours, it tends to lose a bit of the initial hydration, but the colour remains. After the removal, it tends to stain. If you’re into pink shades, you better give this lipstick a try!
- The Lipglass is described as an “hot pink with sparkling pearl” and it actually contains a lot of sparkles, mostly pink, but you may also spot light blue, silver and violet ones.
I definitely wouldn’t describe this lipglass as an hot pink, because it’s essentially a clear gloss with spakles and a weak pink tint in it, but i don’t mind it all. It’s a pretty “sweet and innocent” gloss, wearable and fresh. It gives its best combined with the lipstick, because it really enhances the colour. The combo is perfect! ♥
As i said in the Rihanna’s Viva Glam post, the dedication that MAC has to the whole Viva Glam concept is amazingly praiseworthy, considering MAC’s influence in the beauty industry. All the proceeds from the selling of the Viva Glam lipsticks and lipglasses will be allocated to the research against HIV/AIDS, in order to help men, women and children affected.
Differently from the latest Rihanna’s campaign, both the lipstick and the lipglass of the MAC x MIley have the classical Viva Glam packaging. The lipstick has the red logo and the red bullet with Miley’s signature. The lipglass has the artist’s signature too, but directly on the tube.
- Lipstick US$16.00
- Lipglass US$15.00
