Review // MAC Viva Glam Miley Lipglass

I'm going to level with you- I'm not usually one for lip glosses. However, MAC Viva Glam Miley Lipglass was just so pretty and perfect, I couldn't resist! I already owned the Viva Glam Miley Lipstick so it was only fair to reunite the friends, right? You may have seen this product make its first appearance in my SS15 beauty trends post, but it's about time I gave it a proper review (and yes, I'm reusing the photos. I'll also be reusing them when I review the other two products so get used to it!)

PACKAGING
There's not a huge amount to say here- it's pretty standard as far as packaging goes. A neat, compact tube made of durable plastic, which is clear so you can see how much product you have left. The applicator is spongy and slanted, which allows for defined application.

CONSISTENCY & APPLICATION
As I mentioned above, the applicator makes it really easy to apply around the lip contours, and it has a slight artificial fruit scent. When first applied, the gloss feels thick and slimy but this quickly settles into a more natural feel, albeit a bit gritty from the glitter particles. 

APPEARANCE
MAC tout this as a "tinted" lipglass, and it's interesting because it looks bright when swatched on my hand. Once applied to my lips, however, the colour is more subtle. Don't let that fool you though- the shade may be subtle but the gloss certainly isn't. This is a high-gloss shine, complete with blue-based glitter particles that reflect the light and make for an even more shimmery effect. For maximum impact, I like to wear this lipglass on top of a bright pink, such as Pink Pigeon, which you can see in the image below.

LONGEVITY
Part of the reason I don't often wear glosses is because they wear off so quickly. With Viva Glam Miley Lipglass, the colour and initial gloss effect may not last a long time, but those iridescent sparkles remain for hours giving a gorgeous subtle shimmer.

I'm not sure if this lipglass has convinced me to try more, but I've certainly been keeping it in my bag handy. I'll have come to a decision by the time it's finished!

  5. Gorgeous colour and looks beautiful on you. I've heard Mac lipgloss can be quite sticky which puts me off a bit.

  8. You look SO cute in this photo Becky! I love the look of this - I have the Viva Glam Nicki lipglass and quite like the formula. Not sure how keen I'd be on glitter though but perhaps!
