MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam I lipstick + World AIDS Day

MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam I lipstick + World AIDS Day

Today is World AIDS Day. A day that was started 26 years ago to help raise awareness about the disease that has now killed over 36 million people globally. Growing up, HIV and AIDS was a cause everyone rallied against. But now, it’s like people have forgotten how serious AIDS is and how easily you can prevent contracting it.

MAC Cosmetics has been a huge part in the fight against AIDS. In fact, because of the MAC AIDS Fund, a new documentary called It’s Not Over will be released today. The film follows the lives of three “millenials” from around the word who are affected by or living with AIDS. It’s eye opening, heart wrenching  and will make you want to jump off your couch and take action.

And one way you can support the MAC AIDS Fund is really simple, buy a Viva Glam lipstick! The proceeds of every Viva Glam lipstick sold goes to the MAC AIDS Fund to help with research and education.
MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam I lipstick World Aids Day
This is Viva Glam I, an intense brownish-blue red matte. First released in 1994, it started a movement and helped raise a ton of awareness for the cause.

ONE swatch, just one to get this bold, opaque coverage

And like most MAC mattes, it isn’t too drying at all and doesn’t feather or flake. It’s not transfer-resistant, but it’s close to it.

  • I’ve added the doc to my Netflix list! I look forward to seeing it.

    I was looking at MAC Ruby Woo recently. What would you say is the comparison of these two colours are? If they are close, then I would pick this Viva Glam one just because of the charitable aspect.

    • Watching it right now!

      I don’t have Ruby Woo (in the tube) I do have it in a reds palette somewhere. I can do a swatchy for you!

      • Oh that would be awesome if it’s not too much trouble. 😮 If it is don’t even worry about it. Hopefully they will be pretty close and then I will buy the Viva Glam one. ;D

  • It’s a beautiful shade of red, and such a great cause too!

  • I need this shade! Totally reminiscent of the time it was first released. So important to continue AIDS education and awareness- great feature, Julie! 🙂

    Vg 1 looks stunning on you!!
