MAC Viva Glam V Lipstick


A Christmas gift from my parents, Viva Glam V is another lipstick that has been added to my collection. I actually chose this lipstick after seeing how gorgeous it looked on Tanya Burr in her favourite MAC lipsticks video, and it's a decision I'm really happy with. I don't have many nude-ish lippies as I find they wash me out but I've been using this quite a bit!

It's another lustre finish with a champagne shimmer. If you don't like shimmery lipsticks then it's probably not for you, but I found it incredible flattering and one that would suit both warmer and cooler skin tones. Being a pink-brown shade, it is perfect for use during the day.


I've found it lasts a reasonable couple of hours on the lips and I wasn't expecting much more with it being such a subtle shade. I found the formula non-drying, but there are definitely more hydrating lipsticks around. 

Do you have any of the Viva Glam lipsticks in your collection?

  1. I really love this lipstick for work and everyday, I think it will always be a firm repurchase in my books and I love that 100% of money goes to charity. Technically its like donating to charity! I really love your lip swatches :)

    1. I agree, I think more high-end companies should take a leaf out of MAC's book when it comes to charity cuts. Thanks lovely :)
