I think Ariana Grande is one of the most talented singers of the contemporary generation; I don't need to emphasize why; just do a quick search of her raw recording videos and you'll see (and hear) why! She's not just all about dressing up and being catchy; she has the voice to prove why should listen to her and buy her album. I like her as an artist and when I like someone, I support them, thus her Viva Glam lipstick is the next VV I've long waited for next to Viva Glam I BY RuPaul; it did not disappoint!


Viva Glam Ariana Grande is described as a deep plum lipstick; I say it's like a shade straight from the underworld, specifically from their runway shows because it's so fashionable. #Slay

You know, I noticed that MAC's made their matte lippies a wee bit moisturizing now to combat the dryness issue that has always been associated with it; I've been wearing AG for a week now and the usual MAC dryness has been minimized significantly, but the matte look is still there; I've never worn a matte MAC lippie comfortably like this ever (unless it's a Lustre, Satin, or Cremesheen).

I also noticed that this lipstick tends to be have a skippy coverage so this is what I do to solve that and to make it look more vibrant:

1. Fill your lips with a lip liner in the similar color to provide a base for the lipstick. MAC Lip Liner in Blackcurrant is a great candidate; if that is not available to you at the moment, just powder your lips lightly; the powder will help the pigments adhere better on the lips.

2. Apply lipstick as usual.

Tadah! Focus on me! :p It's fashionable, cool, sexy, and classy; it's every bit of Ariana in a gorgeous plum shade! Another thing I noticed with this lipstick is it looks stunning against fair skin so if you're fair and you want a dark lipstick that will flatter your skin tone instead of just sit on it, it's this. :) Good job on this one, Ariana and MAC!

13 Lovely Thoughts

  1. I'm begging my wallet to accommodate Ari's lippie hahaha. Ari's a vocal power house she can mimic the voice of Britney, Whitney, Rhianna, etc. I just love her!

  2. I have a similar shade and im in love with it! It also brings out my other side- the bolder and fiercer one. Last year most of my shades were in the nude and light pink tones, but this year i amped it to darker and more plum ones :)

  3. Thanks for the tip! This is indeed a very fashionable shade :)

  4. My Ari! I really want to have this (just because,it has Ariana Grande in it) though I know that it would be hard for me to pull off this look.Mac lipstick are all tested for its quality so I don't think I would ever think twice before buying it (if I have the money. lol) And, what I've noticed about applying bright or dark lipstick is that lining the lips is a must. It would give a more defined and full lips. Love the fact that it suits almost every skin tone. Looks good on you. =D

  5. Loving the lipstick on you!!! Its really nice that this does not dry out your lips! I'm hoping they would do this on their other matte lipsticks as well :)

  6. Still looks pretty on you just like the first time I saw this on your first post about this Mac Viva Glam Ariana Grande.My mama loves this kind of shade^̮^

  7. Nice! :) This lippie looks sexy and vampy :D How about its longevity ms. Martha? Does the center of your lips is noticeable after eating/drinking?

  8. Still looks pretty on you just like the first time I saw this on your first post about this Mac Viva Glam Ariana Grande.My mama loves this kind of shade^̮^

  9. Ohhhh... pretty! It kinda looks like MAC Media. How do you think it would compare it it, Ms. Martha? Maybe the finish is different?

  10. I wish i can slay that lipstick on me just like you do. 😊

  11. I agree with your thoughts about the change in MAC's matte lipstick formula. The new batch of mattes feel less drying.

    Anyway, you are a living proof that tan skinned women can pull off dark lipsticks beautifully! That shade looks amazing on you, Ms. Martha. :)

  12. Beautiful shade!!! My kind of plum! Perfect for night parties too! Ah! Kahit mag 30 na ko this year I will dare to wear this, di man ako maka-red shade ng lipstick i know i can sport this type of color! i like it!

  13. It's gorgeous! I got a little spooked when I read some reviews on how it tends to feather. Lip liner talaga ang katapat.
