This is my HG red. I wear it almost everyday. I keep it in my purse always, I need it with me at all times. Love the great wear and formula, just matte enough. I do prefer my mattes dryer but this is just so delicious. My most gorgeous red. This red is perfect for anyone.
I love this, my HG red. It is a blue based red, which means fair skinned ladies can pull this off. It's like a brick/brownish red, and it is very dark, but not bright, so many people can pull it off. I have yellow undertones and this brings out the warmth in my face. I think there are too many reds that are pinky or orange, but this is that perfect retro, marilyn monroe red. As far as the formula - I found it to last a relatively long time, and it leaves a stain on the lips. It isn't TOO drying for a matte. I bought the matching gloss to go with it. However, I think I will only wear this in the fall/winter months. Love it!
Viva Glam I is pretty much my everyday lipstick. I'm a HUGE fan of red lips and this is a gorgeous deep, matte red.
Viva Glam I stays on all day which is amazing and when it's manipulated right it really becomes the focal point of your whole makeup.
I'm a huge advocate of always using a lip liner with any lipstick and MAC's "Brick" lip liner is pretty much a perfect match.
Another lip liner I really love to use with Viva Glam I is MAC's "Vino". It's actually much darker in colour but looks really beautiful if you fill in your top lip over the viva glam and line the bottom lip - colouring in the outer corners of your bottom lip and leaving the majority that beautiful, strong red which makes your lip look more plump and shiny! In my opinion it's a really stunning winter or evening look.
Viva Glam really suits any skin tone and I highly recommend it to anyone who loves deep red lipstick.
Believe it or not VGI was my very first red lippie in 1994 (I was 14) when it first was released by Ru Paul. I repurchased this today along w the lipglass (LOVE IT) and a little bag and all the proceeds ($30) go to an AIDS charity. I put this on and felt nostalgic! This is a beautiful Red with blue and brown undertones - it is absolutely un-dupable (IMO) and original.
NC15/NW20 for reference
This is my favourite red lipstick. It stays on forever, it is totally matte but does not dry the lips too much. I love it soooo much!
Ps: I was scared of it at the very beginning because I thought it would have been too dark for me, but then I started reconsidering it and now it is my HG.
I love the matte finish of this lippie , definitely a must try for people who loves Red lipsticks. Plus its a classic from Mac's line of lipsticks :)
This is the perfect red for someone who is afraid of red. First one I purchased due to reviews here and I love it. Yes it is kind of dry but that's why it will last so long. Best if you use a liner and some inexpensive lip balm. Just for reference I'm NC 25 with neutral undertones...Love this and will repurchase if I ever run out.
Let's get glam, the vintage way... Viva glam I is a retro red lipstick with a matte finish. Among the 5 red lipsticks that I have, I'd say that this is the best shade for a vintage look. IMO, this will suit any skin tone. So if you have a dark skin and too afraid to put on a red lipstick then this is the perfect shade for you. Xoxo (See instagram: jillhomez for photo!
