MAC Viva Glam Special Edition: Makeup Review

Lipsticks are my absolute favorite. I'll give it a go, regardless of if it's glossy, matte, shimmery, or anything else. I don't know when I first started to like wearing lipstick, but all I can remember is the joy I had when I saw my lips painted in a range of vivid colors when I glanced in the mirror. However, I've recently became aware of MAC's Viva Glam Special Edition matte lipstick, which is incredibly gorgeous.

This lipstick was developed in collaboration with Winnie Harlow and has been available since May 1, 2019, on the market. It has a deep brownish blue-red color and is $19.50 in price. According to MAC, Viva Glam was founded amid the height of the HIV/AIDS crisis in 1994. Since then, MAC cosmetics has worked with well-known artists including Sia, Mylie Cyrus, Mary J. Blige, Elton John, and Ricky Martin to enhance the sales of Viva Glam products. The organizations that support the rights and health of men and women of all ages and races will get the entirety of the proceeds from the sale of Viva Glam lipsticks.

Although I am aware that MAC introduced this when they were commemorating their 25th anniversary, I have only lately had the chance to try it. I'm still happy that I was able to find and test it, even though it's a little late.

Actually, I recently learned that a good organization will receive a donation from the sale of this item, which made me ecstatic. This one was only chosen for its eye-catching packaging, but over time, it has come to mean a lot to me. MAC deserves praise for that section. Here's what you should try on and wear:

My lips love the soft velvety feel of this product. Never before have my lips felt such a velvety material. Even wearing it feels wonderful. That is the aspect of Mac cosmetics that I value the most. It feels like true magic on my lips. Additionally, it is so light that I scarcely even notice it is there.

This lipstick's color is just gorgeous. My face certainly got a boost from it. This matte lipstick goes on smoothly and is simple to remove with micellar water despite the fact that it is matte. This lipstick's main drawback is that it dries out my lips, and because of the color, I can't wear it every day in Qatar. Above all, even if it is very pricey, it is wise to give it a shot because the money will be contributed to a worthy cause.

I want to give it my highest recommendation to those of you who appreciate wearing lipstick.
