For all you M.A.C enthusiasts out there, here’s a look at the November 2015 product launches!
Starting with Wham-Bam-Beauty Queen MILEY CYRUS as she takes on VIVA GLAM 2…
So the lip-stick (HK$155) is described as a “bright orange [with a Matte finish].” It’s a brightened, medium coral-orange with warm, red undertones and a semi-matte finish… And I LOVE it!
It’s a particularly awesome tone for during the day. Personally I find blue based reds better suited to the evening, while orange based reds just pop out with so much brightness and fun they suit a sunny day!
Now the texture of this lippy had a light creaminess to it and there was also a velvety, silicone-primer-esque slip to it which made covering the lips with rich, even color easy. Mattes as a rule can be a little tricky if your lips aren’t in top notch condition, so this new formula is wonderful as it is quite forgiving.
True to the other characteristics of a matte lipstick, VIVA GLAM 2 lasted for hours! I’d say I was topping around 5+ hours with the colour on – although about half way into this it did start drying noticeably.
If your not familiar with MAC’s Viva Glam program the HERE’s how Viva Glam works!
It is one of the best charitable efforts in beauty, as 100% of the selling price (not profits, not proceeds, 100% of the selling price) goes to to the MAC AIDS Fund – What a cause to support!
A quick look at what else was released this November…
‘MACnificentME’ – a collection that celebrates YOUR style, heart and soul!
It is all about individuality and expression!
The collection is broken up in to three mini collections (but fully stoked in terms of product’s within those lines) from which I had the pleasure of reviewing:
- ‘Strutting Fabulous’ (HK$180) which is a bright lavender lipstick that applies more like a medium, lavender purple with cool undertones and a matte finish.
- ‘Accentuate/Sculpt’ (HK$240) which is a combined contouring pallet of pale beige and a soft taupe brown – a daily go to now for me!
- Patentpolish Lip Pencil in ‘It’s Really Me’ (HK$190) which is a peach pink nude and quite simply, a gorgeous nude lipstick that EVERY woman should have in their makeup kit
