To everyone's surprise, I did not buy VG V when it first came out. In fact, I never really intended to purchase this lipstick at all. I asked for VG VI and the girl at the counter gave me V by mistake. I did not realize until I was home, and the girls on the MUA Board convinced me to try it and keep!! I am so glad I did!!!
I am always in search of the perfect nude lip. I have over 20 nude colored lippies, in my mind, all with some subtle variational difference from all the others. But VG V is different! It instantly became my HG nude lipcolor. It has a little gold shimmer, so it has dimension, and on me (NW 30, for reference), it is neither too brown, too gold or too pink. It really is perfect!!! Thank God for mistakes. They sometimes result in mankind's ( or here womankind's) best discoveries. Yay Viva GLam V, you rock!!!!!
I will repurchased when it runs out, which appears to be soon!!! Don't miss out on this one if you like nude lips, it's really perfect.
For refernce : I am NC20 / Fair to light with golden undertones
This is a nice lippie! One of my HG~!
I wear this all the time (mostly mix with other colors, like Lustering and Skew to soften the color). continued >>
Well this was a good surprise, especially because i'm not MAC l/s consumer (gorgeous shades but overall not enough quality); it's supposed to be similar to Sharp Beige (for which i swapped it),and it is on the tube, but SB went dark/greyish and smeared outside lip area like crazy, after an hour i applied it. Good quality, lovely shade!
Up-date: have to rate this 5***** as i love more and more each day
My HG lipstick...other reveiwers have described it perfectly so I wont go into that, but this lipstick is great. In the winter time, I go to bed with vaseline on my lips to keep my lips super moisturized throughout the next day because it doesnt look good on chapped lips, but what lipstick does. lol.
As the previous reviewer says, it is a neutral honey beige pink... Very pretty & safe. Good for a day when you don't want to accentuate your lips too much, very neutral but still pretty! continued >>
Like one of the reviewers below, I use Viva Glam V and Clinique's Butter Shines Delovely quite often. These are my two "go to" lipsticks. Viva Glam V looks great on tanned skin, very natural but noticeable. Although it doesn't look particularly interesting or exciting in the tube, it somehow manages to completely brighten my face. This is definitely HG material for me. I've bought 3 tubes of it and will keep on buying it as long as MAC offers it.
This is an absolutely gorgeous lipstick and one of my favs. A pinky/peachy beige colour on my lips with that hint of shimmer. This is perfect for everyday wear and practically goes with any eye make-up which i loove. Would definitely buy this again not only cause its such a beautiful lippie but its going to a good cause too! 5 lippies from me, for Viva Glam V.
I use this color and Clinique Butter Shine in Delovely. I love both. Viva Glam V is great for any occasion. I love the color and texture and wearability. I would definitely repurchase this. I sometimes wear the Viva Glam V Lipglass over this lipstick. The look is wonderful yet not over the top.
I lost my tube, but this was my everyday. From me, that's saying a lot. I have a horrible time finding a nude pink that doesn't look gray when I put it on--this is it. I rarely finish tubes of lipstick, but I've cleared a tube of both the glass and the lipstick. I love this color. I love Viva Glam.
This is a beautiful natural/peach shade with gorgeous gold shimmer. I think that this maybe my new favorite shade. It has great staying power and feels moisturizing on. I highly recommend this one.
