MAC Unsung Heroes: Viva Glam V Lipglass

Viva Glam V Lipglass ($14.50) is a great gateway gloss for makeup newcomers, and it’s probably the color I recommend the most to new/shy makeup wearers, especially teens and girls just getting into makeup for the first time.


I know that if I was a young girl looking for a mom-approved gloss, (my mom never liked me wearing crazy colors), neutral shimmery pink Viva Glam V definitely would have made the cut.

And I swear that it makes my lips look fuller, even though it’s technically not a plumping gloss.

It’s a nude lip look pigmented enough to stand on its own, so it stops before heading all the way down the path to concealer/flesh-colored lips (where your kisser all but disappears).

I love how pretty it looks layered on top of nude pink or brown lip liners and lipsticks. 🙂

NOTE: Viva Glam V also comes in a very pretty Lipstick, and both it and the gloss are gorgeous gateway lip colors. I think the Lipglass version here conveys much less pink, and maybe a dash more mauve.

    That’s a very pretty gloss indeed! Your blush is gorgeous too.
    And as I’ve commented in another post: I don’t know what highlighter you use (or maybe its your skincare?) but your skin looks amazing! It’s just glowing! Really, really pretty. Would you mind sharing what you’ve used on your skin? 🙂

    It looks a lot like Nymphette–if you have one, do you need the other?

    My browser is going bonkers on me. :-/

    Just wanted to say i LOVE VG V so much and sorry for the triple posts. :-/

  8. I TOTALLY AGREE- you literally can’t go wrong with this lip color. They better never discontinue it. I do love the Viva Glam V1 as well, a bit pinkier than the V, but just as wearable. Glad you’re enjoying your trip- your kittie talent scouting is hilarious:)
