MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande Lipstick

When I heard the next Viva Glam celebrity was going to be Ariana Grande I knew I was going to invest. It didn't matter what shade it was - I was interested. (any excuse to buy another MAC product really....)
I'll admit it - I'm a fan girl! I love Ari, she's a babe!

Anyway.... the collection was released and at first I was actually a little unsure whether to take the plunge and buy it, but because it looked so awesome on Ari (Yup, we are so close I can call her that...) so I decided that it was a must and my life wouldn't be complete without it.

This Viva Glam isn't like any of the others I've had before, I'm used to the fun girly pinks of Nicki and Miley but this lippy is super dark - a gorgeous matte plum in fact! 

Don't be alarmed buy the shade in the tube - it isn't as scary once applied!
The shade is gorgeous, I'm in love and so,so pleased I decided to buy it.
The forumla is surprisingly moisturising for a matte shade - a little like the feel of Velvet Teddy (my number one lippy).

I highly recommend you pair this with a liner though - it's too easy to make a mess of it .... as I may have found out!

 I have a liner slightly lighter which isn't overly great with it so I think I'll be investing in one a bit darker to perfect the look!

I cannot wait to wear this on a night out - is it sad I kind of want to base my outfit around it?!

Have any of you tried it out yet?! You can check it out - here.


  1. This is such a gorgeous shade, I love it! Although of course we have to admit it's not the easiest to wear haha. It is very different, something you can't find in many other brands so I'd say it was worth taking the splurge!

  5. It loot looks like such a gorgeous shade, but I will admit I was a little intimidated by the shade in the bullet. But it is Ariana, how can you not get it?! x

  10. Oh I love it so much, it's so dark! I didn't actually think Ariana wore colours like this but she probably looks amazing with any shade. I love the idea behind the Viva line too!

  11. I would have preferred to see something a bit browner and more on trend!

    This kind of shade was all the rage a few years ago, but seems a bit dated now?
