MAC Viva Glam Cyndi Lipglass Lovin'!

I've finally found a wearable red lip! I was ecstatic when I tried this on after I got it in the post, and I'm already lusting after the lipstick (finding loopholes in my P15P exceptions already!).

If you don't know about MAC's Viva Glam collection, they are basically a range in which 100% of the profits go to MAC's Aids Fund. Every year they release a limited edition version designed by celebrities, and in Feb. 2010, there was Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper. In August, they released the lipglosses.

I got the Cyndi lipglass because I don't own a MAC lipglass and I thought, if I was going to get one I should get a colour I don't have and super plus if the profits go to charity.


I've tried MAC lipglasses before, and I found them to be incredibly sticky, but bearably so (I know some would disagree!). This one, I feel is hardly sticky. I feel like it's about average, but the staying power is insane. The pigmentation is insane. It feels like a liquid lipstick more than anything.

The colour is a bit darker than what you see above, it's what I can only describe as a milky red, which is a wee bit on the warmer side. It has literally micro-micro shimmer, so micro that it's pretty much matte. And for me (NC30-35), it's an incredibly wearable red. In fact, it's the only red I've felt comfortable in, and it makes me want to..

Would definitely recommend giving this Lipglass a chance, even if you aren't a fan of MAC's Lipglasses as I'm feeling pretty confident the formula is very different. It's also gone after February 2011, so go go go! :)
