This one's safe for those who want to give red lips a try. Amazing texture and suits most skintones. It's one of my favorites.

I think this is the best red shade from the entire MAC lipstick collection.
It is a slightly brownish blood red with cool undertones and it looks AMAZING.
I used to be a hardcore Ruby Woo fan but i got tired of it, and then i remembered i had Viva Glam I in my collection but never used it. Wow. I felt the joy of redescovering an amazing matte red lipstick i never knew before.
It is creamy and opaque and feels like a dream.
It is borderline vampy, could be a bit similar to NARS's Fire Down Below (although FDB is a bit darker), and definitely pinup-y.
I have a yellowish NC20 skin and it looks amazing on me, always receive compliments.
I have almost finished my tube and I can't wait to buy a second one. Might even go get my second buller tomorrow. Can't wait!
Definitely recommended. Plus, the Viva Glam collection supports a good cause. Go get yours today!

Ah, the original Red. MAC is the fave brand for when I feel like splurging on lipsticks so I had to try it.
I know that MAC Mattes are notorious for drying on the lips but I haven't had that problem with this little gem. It's a rich brick blue-red with a subtle hints of brown undertones. I don't have any lipstick that can dupe this so well done, MAC. I think that anyone can wear this, even if you are super fair-skinned with the complexion of a ghost as long as you tone down the other parts of your makeup. This is the lippie I grab for if I'm having a fancy dinner or something.
Like any other MAC lip products, it smells strongly of sweetened vanilla and the bullet tube has a bit of a sheen to it.
Just get it for charity :D

I love this color. This is my first red lipstick! This is also my first matte lipstick, as well. The color is like Ruby Woo but with a brown tint, plus it's not as dry. Heads turn when I wear this color! That's never happened with other Mac colors. Even the girls be lookin'....lol. I love this color.

This then, finally, is My MAC Red. I wore Russian Red for years and bypassed VGI thinking it too brown or vampy. I also have Brave, MAC Red and New York Apple...but at last I've found the perfect, most flattering red for me. It's a shade or two deeper and while definitely a cool colour, would probably still look great on warmer tones - I think many reds do.
The most sophisticated, classy, sexy red I now own!

VG1 is a really cool lipstick, because its a blue based red, so it works great for my fair skin, and it also makes my teeth look really white. However, it also has a brown undertone, so it makes it more wearable for all skin types. It's one of the creamier mattes MAC has, much like Red Russian, so it's comfortable to wear, and long lasting. I was surprised to see that this color is wearable during the day. I usually wear it with MAC's Brick lip pencil, or Cherry if I want it to be brighter. I don't know what took me so long to get this shade, but I really love it!

This was more blood red then the cherry red that I'm used to wearing. The lasting power and everything is perfect but the shade just wasn't for me. Ruby woo is more my color

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.
