Here's my new go- to red for daytime, especially now that I have work and I face clients and my boss most of the time. Argh! Why did I buy this just now!? Everyone was right. It is indeed a lovely color!

A lil' history about the Viva Glam lipstick line: These lipstick lines were created to support the M.A.C AIDS FUND. Each cent from every sold Viva Glam lipstick goes to the foundation. The first- ever Viva Glam lipstick was created with Ru Paul, drag queen extraordinaire and producer of a hit reality show called Drag Race. (which is one of my favorite T.V. shows) Since 1994, the M.A.C AIDS FUND has sent thousands of underserved kids to school, educated hundreds of communities on the importance of safe sex, and assisted and served over a million people who are living with HIV. To date, M.A.C has contributed a total of $2.6 million in donations.

Pretty cool, right? Who would've thought that humanity can actually benefit from a single tube of lipstick? Click READ MORE for the swatches and review.

Viva Glam I is a gorgeous warm red shade with a brown undertone. It has a matte finish. One caveat: It's a bit drying to the lips. Well, I don't mind! :D

The color is very beautiful. I'd like to call thee the "Corporate Red". It's something I'd wear to meetings with my clients and my boss because it's a color that demands respect and admiration. It exudes confidence and maturity.

And on the vain side, it makes me look fresh in an instant. It makes my teeth look whiter, and it basically compliments any skin tone.

I always feel good when I know that my small ways contribute to bigger movements that aim to change the world. With this lipstick, I know I've served thousands of people who are in dire need of education, food, shelter, and moral support. I know it's expensive for some, but if and whenever you can, I strongly urge everyone to support M.A.C's mission through the Viva Glam lipsticks. Doesn't it feel good knowing that for at least once, your vanity has actually served the world? That said, this Viva Glam lipstick will be one of my most memorable purchases ever. :)
