MAC Viva Glam 1 Lipstick: Review and Swatches

I am definitely on a matte kinda trip and red lips have been my obsession. This red that i am going to review today is from Viva Glam series. In 1994 MAC introduced their Viva Glam, and the best thing about this is every cent of selling the Viva Glam lipstick and lipglass is donated to the MAC AIDS fund to support men, women and children living with HIV and AIDS. Now that is super cool.

Product Description:

MAC describes Viva Glam 1 as intense brownish blue-red (Matte).

Price: Rs.990/-

My view on Viva Glam 1:

The packaging of the Viva Glam series lipstick is pretty, as much as I like the black and silver packaging I like the black and red packaging a tad bit more.

As you all know how much I love red lips. So this is my first ever red lipstick. I was trying a lot of them and I  wanted to buy ruby woo but unfortunately they did not have in stock and I picked this one. I was still not comfortable with wearing red, but this is such a pretty shade not too loud type of red and I would confidently flaunt the red lips. The finish of the lipstick is matte, but not on the very drying side however I strongly recommend exfoliating the lips. Because that gives a much neater finish. The application is quite comfortable, does not tug or pull the lips. Once the lips are exfoliated it wont settle on fine lines. Like all the matte lipsticks this is very long wearing, lasts through small snacks.


1. Richly pigmented matte lipstick.
2. A pretty red color.
3. Stays really long.
4. Does not feather or bleed.


1.You need exfoliate your lips and moisturize it before you apply this lipstick


If you are wearing red for the first time and you don't want it to be too loud then this is the one. The brown undertone flatters Indian skin tone.
