MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam Sia lipstick review

MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam Sia lipstick review

Did you know I own every single MAC Viva Glam lipstick release? (I mean really, are you surprised?) And I’ve reviewed almost every single one. And this year, I am overjoyed that Sia is the new Viva Glam face… not only because I am a huge fan of her music but also have so much respect for how she’s navigated “fame” and managed her career.

“Speak up, sing out and let the world see you…in the unstoppable colour of VIVA GLAM Sia! This iconic campaign’s newest spokeswoman has broken pop’s artistic boundaries with her avant-garde style and exhilarating vocals – accompanied by soulful songwriting that inspires countless fans to raise their own voices.”

Viva Glam Sia is described as a bright, yellow red with a matte finish.

The shade is extremely pigmented (2x swatch above). It has a bit of a creamy texture and dries down fairly matte.

This went on very smooth on my lips and didn’t feel dry. The MAC Matte finish is in between the satin and retro matte as far as texture.

Now I usually lean towards cool-toned reds but this “yellow red” actually leans fairly neutral on me. It’s quite stunning!

And like all Viva Glam releases (except for the permanent line), this will not last on shelves forever. Grab the MAC Viva Glam Sia lipstick before it’s gone. And don’t forget, the selling price of every Viva Glam lipstick ($22 CAD/$17.50 USD) goes towards helping people living with HIV/AIDS.
