MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 Lipglass and Lipstick (coming September 1 to the MAC website and to stores and counters September 8)

Hot damn, Viva Glam! Ariana Grande is back with two new Viva Glams — a $17 matte Lipstick and a $16 Lipglass — and I think they’re so freakin’ gorge…

I’m figuratively shaking in my Timberland boots.

MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 Lipglass and Lipstick

I can’t remember the last time I was this excited about a Viva Glam. I’ve always been down to support the cause, which I think is awesomesauce, because MAC donates all of the proceeds from the Viva Glam releases to help children and families affected by HIV and AIDS, but I think the past few Viva Glam rounds have been… Well, let’s just say that they’ve been on the artsy side.

I think these two, though, are straight-up pretty. I like them even more than Ariana’s first Viva Glam back in January. They’re brighter, but I think they’re also more wearable and fun.

Doesn’t the lipstick look like candy? Or like the color of a Popsicle? Technically, it’s a cool pink, but I think it looks kinda purple on me.

It’s just so smooth and pigmented… LOVE IT.

Wearing MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 Lipstick and Lipglass together

The Lipglass reminds me of MAC Spite and made me go “Ooh!” the first time I ba-doomped it on my lips. On its own, it’s a totally wearable everyday neutral, but it’s absolute perfection layered on top of the lipstick.

    oooh that lipglass looks like brownish nude lip perfection! you are right, I am all about the cause but have never been inclined to purchase a viva glam lippie before. this lipglass tho….is it sticky? long wearing? drying? tell me more! 🙂

    • Karen says:

      Hi Yelena,

      Lipglasses are very sticky, so depending on how you feel about that, it could be a pro or a con. I think it’s a pro, because the stickiness allows the gloss to hang around for a while. For me, I get a good 4 hours! Let me know if you have any other questions about the product or anything else!

  3. yelena says:

    thanks Karen! I usually don’t like sticky glosses, but maybe I’ll try it in store. I’m all about that matte finish life but this color just looks too nice to pass up!

    • Karen says:

      You’re welcome. Good idea to take it for a test spin first, because the Lipglasses are something you’re either going to love or not love. The color is an absolutely spot perfect nude! While you’re their you might also want to try MAC’s Spite Lipglass, too. It’s similar to this one, but a touch more opaque.

  6. Savannah says:

    I LOVE these on you!! Soo pretty! I wasn’t sure about these when I first saw the promo pics but… Wow. How similar is the lipstick to Girl about town? Just out of curiosity.

  7. Abby says:

    I haven’t tried any of the Viva Glams except for the original Nicki. I do really like the lip gloss, but the purple lipstick looks great on you!

  8. Nadine says:

    I love that lipgloss on you! I have loads of viva glams, just for the donation part, but hands down the Rihanna red with a hint of gold in it is the best for me.

  9. I only ever tried one of the MAC Viva Glam ones, a red one, but I can´t remember which one it was.

    Oooh… thanks for the heads up on these beauties!! I’ve SO been digging the purple-y, plummy, mauve-y shades of late, and the pair of these, together or separately, look divine (plus, The Cause). All-around win! 😀

  11. Astrid says:

    OMG those are really pretty indeed!!! Love them on you so much, esp combined <3. It's good that I've the same skintone with you so I know kinda what it looks like. Think I've never lusted over VG since Rihanna :-D.

    Gurl, that Riri II lippie is going to be in full rotation come Fall. I pair it with the lipglass Explicit & find that this pairing works for me. So love it! I missed out on the Riri II lipglass but Explicit is a supposed close dupe. I’ve only ever bought one more Viva lippie- MAC Miley but I honestly don’t wear it that much. I’m digging this collection, though & can see myself getting a lot of use from it. Looks great on you 🙂

  13. Michele DiCola says:

    Not sure if I’m in !
    It looks too purple 🙋🏻

  14. Chris25 says:

    WOW at that purple!

    I LOVE that these are so wearable! The lipstick is totally a shade I would wear daily, and it works really well with the lip glass. I’m impressed!

    The lipglass is so pretty, not so sure about the lipstick though..

  17. OOOPS, I’ve never tried any Viva Glam lipstick!
    I’m loving this one on you, but I don’t think it would look as good on me.

  18. Rachel R. says:

    I love the lipstick color. The gloss is pretty, though I wish it were more sparkly. It would be pretty for a low-key look by itself, though.

  19. Diana says:

    At the risk of totally dating myself, I love the Via Glam V lipstick and lipglass combo. Pam Anderson killed it in that campaign and I still love both items to this day.
