QUICK REVIEW #1: MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus

As always, MAC’s packaging is sleek and classic. Small, easy to hold, store, and clean. The only difference in the Viva Glam Miley is that instead of the usual silver MAC logo and stripe, the Viva Glam ranges are represented with red.
As someone with dry lips, I can’t stand matte finishes right now. Though I adore the look, my lips suffer from the lack of moisture. Thankfully, this lipstick is an Amplified finish, meaning it has the perfect amount of shine and glides onto the lips easily. I also noticed that throughout the day that my lips did not dry out!
One swipe gives a decent amount of color, but you can easily build it up on the lips for a more intense color and shine. Would not recommend a lipgloss with this lipstick, the formula would make the combination slide around on the lips.
#4: Food Test
Did not last through my lunch (burger and fries, oh so healthy), but the color did stain my lips. Would definitely need to reapply.
At 16.00 US Dollars it might be a bit pricy for some, but compared to some other lipsticks I’ve purchased the quality is excellent for the price.
Can you dupe it?!
A product can earn 2 extra points if it is dupeable.
The closest thing I could find in my collection was my Lasting Finish by Kate Moss Lipstick (Rimmel) in shade 06. This lipstick does run a little bit warmer than the MAC Viva Glam Miley, and it definitely shows in pictures, but not in person. I had to look very closely to notice the slight difference in undertones.
I also swatched Milani’s Fruit Punch but the color is significantly lighter than both the MAC and Rimmel lipsticks.
2 points for MAC Viva Glam Miley!
FINAL SCORE: 39/50
