Okay so I hit MAC again last week, but this time I went to the MAC store in Glorietta. I swear that store is burning a deep hole in my pocket! Oucccccch! I got me a MAC Viva Glam V lipstick. I first checked the store in Shang but apparently, they ran out… so I had to go all the way to Makati to grab one. Yes, I’m a pretty determined girl. Hehe. So anyway, to help justify the damage (LOL), I just want to show you how MAC-aholic some girls can be and I actually pale in comparison to most of these chicks.
One of ’em is Aubrey, a 20 year old Pinay who has an insatiable make-up addiction. In this vlog that you’ll see here, the Mac Viva Glam V was included in her top 6 lip products. Don’t be fooled, although this girl is quite young, she has a huge following of about 2.9M views in Youtube alone and a lot more in her blog. No formal make-up schooling… She just loves make-up!
So there, I think I feel much better now. Hahaha. Anyhoo, about my personal take on the product, for starters I love the packaging with its chrome black finish, and I like how rich the product is that even if you lightly glide it on your lip, you already get a lot of color in there. Here’s a close-up.
I like the shade too because it’ s something you can wear everyday and if you want to look extra sassy for the night, you can just add-on an ultra shiny lipgloss paired with dramatic eye make-up and you’re good to go!
So what’s the damage? Friggin PHP 900. Yeah…painful! But no regrets here though. EYELOVET!!! Here’s some quick maarteng snapshots of yours truly, wearing my “now” fave lippie.
