Not my favorite. Very sheer, even for a lustre formula. The shimmer particles are very obvious and bigger than they should be. My least favorite viva glam LS. It's a "MLBB" shade but it made my lips darker, which I didn't like. I'm nw30 w very pigmented lips for reference.
LOVE LOVE LOVE! perfect with Sublime culture liner an dInstant Gold lustreglass! Makes my lips look perfectly pouty and full and shiny and natural! neutral and great for daytime as well as with a smokey eye!
A staple in my collection. I currently own 2, 1 to keep in my handbag and another to keep in my makeup kit at home. Im a neutral lipstick h00r, so I have loads of neutral lipsticks, but this one always seems to find its way to the top. Its creamy with the right amount of nude for my NC40 skin. Its the perfect combo of beige and pink. It replaced my former HG lipstick, Wet N Wilds Pink Sky, which was d/c when WnW reformulated their entire line. Its okay though because in retrospect, VGV is a softer, more natural looking color. Will gladly pay the price for this lipstick over and over again, because it all goes to good use.
My old fav lippie. Been through 20 plus tubes, but with B2mac you cant go wrong, Love this color! Pinky brown with a peach hue, and has a nice shimmer. Its gotten a little more glittery in the last year and Ive switched to midimauve not that Im 34 yrs old. Beautiful color, just time for me to branch out with others, still think of my old fav here though:)
I reach for this whenever I'm unsure of what lipstick to wear. Which is just about everyday =)
Sparkly peachy pink, which I'm sure would look great on every skin tone. I would repurchase this again and again.
And, all proceeds go to the MAC AIDS fund. What more could you want?
Lovely lipstick, great for every day when I don't want to think too much about what to wear on my lips, this looks great with everything. I'll definitely repurchase, also because it's for a worthy cause.
A lovely, natural lipstick. A universal color with just the right amount of everything thrown in: Flesh pink, a little bit of brown, and a tiny hint of plum, along with a small amount of shimmer. This is what I put on when I have no idea what to pair my eye-makeup with, whether that be just a simple liner or a heavy smoky. This would be my No 1 choice to use on a bride for skintones up to NC/NW35, for the darker ones I might go for a shade darker which is the Viva Glam VI. For those who are just starting out with makeup, I firmly believe this is a safe color and texture that won't let you down. It's my ultimate go-to shade so I'll definitely repurchase.
What a beautiful lipstick. A few shades darker than my natural lip color. My only gripe is that I wish it can be less drying. I love that all proceeds go to AIDS research
Great lipstick, it's a 99% match of my natural lips.. (I'm N30), but with slight shimmer in it..
Recently I have finally given up on lipglosses (I love the way they look, but the staying power is aweful) and in my line of work I talk a lot, drink a lot of water and always need to reapply my lippie I needed something better than a lipgloss...
So I was searching for some lipsticks that would gimme some sexy shimmer without making me go all out with my make-up! First time I tried it I instantly fell in love, but they were out of stock. Two days I went to the Mac counter and finally got it! Couldnt be happier... :) Im sure all the other users have done a pretty decent job at describing this lippie, but if you love l/s and you own Brave, Modesty by Mac and like it, you should also love Viva Glam 5...
LOVEEEEEEEE this lipstick! its a gorgeous pink plum color with high shinee glimmers on your lips beautifully! i will repurch this over and over and over
