MAC x Miley Cyrus Viva Glam 

MAC announced that Miley Cyrus would be the Viva Glam spokesperson for 2015. Regardless of whether or not you're a Miley fan, it's hard to deny that she's the type of bold personality that can get people talking--which is exactly what the Vivia Glam campaigns need! If you're unfamiliar with MAC's Viva Glam campaign, I highly recommend reading about it on their site. In a nutshell, the campaign raises an incredibly amount of money that goes towards supporting individual (adults and children) affected by and living with HIV/AIDS.

Being the young, bold personality she is, Miley chose what MAC has described as "super-sexy hot pink" as her lipstick shade accompanied by "super-sexy hot pink with sparkling pearl shimmer) lipglass.

Sorry about the difference in skin tones below. The first shot with just the lipstick is more accurate to my actual skin tone, but with this weird winter weather and that blizzard (which is when I took these shots) the light has been changing constantly and it's making my camera super wacky.  The way google translates my images once I upload them makes them a bit odd as well. At least the lipstick shades are as accurate as I could capture even if it's making my skin look pale and oddly speckled in one pic!

MAC Miley Cyrus Viva Glam Lipstick Review

Shade - medium-deep hot pink with a slight salmon undertone
Finish - amplified (creamy and with a moderate shine)
Flavor/Scent - MAC's traditional vanilla
On the Lips - creamy, with plenty of slip; opaque coverage; very comfortable to wear
Price - $16 retail 
Where to Buy - MAC/maccosmetics.com 
My Thoughts - I'm a huge fan of MAC's amplified finish and you guys know I can't resist a good pink, so this lipstick was a total hit for me! I know I probably have a few colors that are similar, but I couldn't think of an exact dupe off the top of my head. The color is great, coverage is great and wear is comfortable. AND purchasing this lipstick benefits a great cause. Well done, MAC and Miley!

Tip: I love this over both More to Love liner and Cranberry liner (coming soon once again in the upcoming Penciled In collection) if you like a nice vibrant lip. You can also layer over Hip n' Happy if you want to subdue it a midge.


MAC Miley Cyrus Viva Glam Lipglass Review

Shade - medium deep jelly pink with multi-tonal pearl flecks
Finish - gloss with reflective specks
Flavor/Scent - MAC's traditional vanilla
On the Lips - MAC's typical lipglass formula; sticky; great shine; nice reflective specks
Price - $15 retail
Where to Buy - MAC/maccosmetics.com 
My Thoughts - If you're like me and you don't mind a sticky gloss, this is a fun pink lipglass that complements Miley's lipstick well. It can also be worn on its own or over other colors. The multi-tonal pearl flecks give it added dimension, but the effect is moderately subtle overall and doesn't make you look as though you've doused your lips in glitter (in case that's not the type of effect you're looking for). I think it works well with Miley's Viva Glam mini collection and suggest giving it a try. 

What do you think of Miley's Viva Glam lipstick and lipglass? Have you purchased either or both?
