The famously known and loved MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam Cyndi and Gaga Lipstick shades have been launched in lipglass form, with 100% of proceeds going to the MAC AIDS Fund. To see photographs and swatches of both,
Viva Glam Cyndi is a light coral red lustre lipglass. As with the lipstick, this shade is a surprise stunner for me. Not one to typically wear really bold lips, I love that this color is flattering, wearable, and almost-red without being too flashy. This is a universally flattering shade, as well, so if you’d like to go bold but you’re unsure if this will look good on you, you can have the confidence to go for it!
I really dig the consistency of MAC Lipglass, and this one was no exception. It was a tiny bit sticky, as most lipglasses by MAC are, but the wear on these is great. Can I just say that I have a hard time choosing between whether or not I love Viva Glam Cyndi in lipglass form or in lipstick form? Both are gorgeous!
Viva Glam Gaga is a cool, blue-toned pink shade. This shade can be applied lightly or with lip balm for a less intense chalky pink color, or layered for intense baby pink color. This shade is personally not flattering on me in lipstick or in lipglass form, so I typically always used Viva Glam Gaga lipstick as a layer, or used it over top of lip balm to make it less intense. I have warm olive toned skin, and this washes me out while also bringing out the green tones in my skin way too much. While I can get away with the lipstick form of Viva Glam Gaga, I’m not sure I can pull off the lipglass form of Gaga, at least not alone. It’s very milky, light, and gorgeous – just not on my skin tone. I have personally seen this on fair and dark skin tones, and it looks lovely.
I typically wear Viva Glam Gaga on top of brighter, dark lipsticks and glosses to lighten them and give them a sweeter look. Both Viva Glam Cyndi and Viva Glam Gaga are absolutely gorgeous, both in lipstick and lipglass form, and will definitely appeal to different beauty lovers.
MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam Cyndi & Viva Glam Gaga Lipglass is now available for $14.50 each at MAC counters nationwide, as well as online at MAC Cosmetics Online.
