MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande Review and Swatch

MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande

If MAC Diva and MAC Cyber had a baby, it would definitely be the MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande lipstick.

I got this lipstick last summer but I found the timing awkward to be worn during that time. I don't even know why MAC decided to release this color then, and why it's even called Ariana Grande when I don't really see her wearing dark colors, but anyway, it's still the perfect lipstick color for fall.

At first glance, it looks kind of black in the tube. It's described as a "matte plum" but I find it to be more of a dark burgundy with a satin finish. Packaging is super cute with Ariana Grande's signature on it, and it carries the trademark MAC scent which I find super satisfying.

When it comes to texture and pigmentation, I need two swipes of this lipstick to get full color on my lips. Having a "matte" finish, there's a little tugging in application, and I noticed that it slips into the drier parts of the lips, so you really need to exfoliate regularly if you plan on using it all fall/winter. I always use a lip balm prior to application, and I find that it helps. It lasts a little over five hours on my lips (with meals of course) and I noticed that it transfers to glasses and cups because it feels kind of satin.

Again, I don't know why MAC would name this color after Ariana Grande, I think Halsey could've been a better model for this -- but it's still a gorgeous fall color, it lasts quite long, it's not as drying as other matte lipsticks, and it could pass as a super chic lipstick this fall -- think leggings, boots, winged eyeliner -- or it could also totally be gothic or rocker chic. It's up to you.

I got it online from @all_about_authentic and I always visit them for the latest/past MAC releases.
