Review // MAC Viva Glam Miley Cyrus


Although I'm not a particular fan of Miley Cyrus, I was really excited to hear MAC were releasing a Viva Glam lipstick fronted by the controversial popstrel. I do love her all-out sense of style and confidence so I had high hopes for this shade. 
As expected, Miley's lipstick is a bright, ballsy pink, although I was surprised to find it had a deeper red appearance in the bullet. I was expecting something a little close to Candy Yum Yum, so I initially thought this was quite safe for a product affiliated with Miley. 
As with all MAC lipsticks, it applies evenly and smoothly with that trademark vanilla scent, although I did find it clings to dry patches a little more than I would have liked. Once applied, the shade is a deep, reddish blue-based pink that has quite a heavy, overpowering effect. The opaque, amplified finish has a slight lustre to it but has a tendency to wander over the lip line as time passes, especially at the corner of the lips. However, it does last well and I find I can wear it all day without needing touch ups. Unlike some of the other long-lasting lipsticks, however, it is easy to remove and doesn't stain the lips for hours after.
All in all, it is a powerful shade that gives lips a strong impact. Although not a new favourite, I'll definitely be returning to it when I want to make a statement.

  1. It looks quite similar to the Nicki Minaj one in the tube, but totally different on the lips. Can't say I'm that excited about the colour to be honest.
