Hey guys! I've been away from the blogosphere fr some time *guilt* but todayy, I'm back ;) Gna take time off the offline world fr a bit & post this cos, I broke my MAC virginity :O Yea ikr, I'm so outdated.

I've never tried any MAC cosmetics cos once I'm used to & happy w certain brands fr each certain product I don't ever change anything lol! Yeah, that's how I am (๑´ω`๑) But after listening to my girl friend Nana rave on & on about her love fr MAC cosmetics, I was tempted & decided to be a little experimental w their lipsticks.

Take note that I only started applying stuff on my lips since about.. 6 months back? Before that I never liked anything on my lips, not even lip balm. But nowadays I'm going lip crazyyy. Those colorful pretty sticks are to die for. I wish I had my own makeup studio styled room in my future home next time :3 Complete w makeup collections on a beautiful dresser & mirrors.

Enough of all that talk & let's proceed to the pictures ❤

I went fr the MATTE range.

My selection; the Viva Glam I.
Description: In 1994, M·A·C introduced VIVA GLAM, an outspoken deep red that was universal in appeal and glamour.

The reason why I chose this color is bcos I wish to try a dark blood red shade, deeper in red finish than my ordinary boring red lipstick. Like I said I wanted to experiment new looks (*/∇\*) Was contemplating between the Russian Red & Viva Glam I actually but the Viva Glam I is way different than my normal look so I gave it a shot.

I was like, “Hey this looks like a bullet (o__o;)” Lol.

Swatch of the Viva Glam I. Look how rich & deep the color is. I only had to do one swipe across my hand & this is how it turned out.

What do you think? It made me look so much more mature (O__O) Also applied silver x black smokey eyeshadow, which made my eyes look twice the size. Lol!

PROS

; A really sexy, somewhat seductive & alluring lip color fr night outs, especially clubbing. Get this if you want a new look to stand out from the crowd.

; No lip liner needed. The precision of the lipstick is good enough on its own.

; Bold color makes yr lips look fuller. Matte looks great alrdy but if you want that extra “pout” you can apply a coat of lip gloss/lip glass depending on yr preference.

; I've never looked this mature IN MY LIFE (lol) & I always complain about my babyface/kiddy face so I can recreate this look again fr suitable occasions.

; Yr hair won't get stuck on matte lips.

; Worth the price (RM70) as I'm sure it'll last long, a good few months.

; Oh yeah & it smells somewhat like chocolate w almonds or hazelnuts. Idk why & I'm not sure how I feel about it. Lol.

CONS

; It's very dry. I guess I needed to apply lip balm or smtg first but of all times, silly me didn't do so fr this review (~_~;)

; During daytime I got the feeling that people might give me weird stares fr wearing such dark colored lips. Probably will get too much unwanted attention.

; I'm not used to such dark color even though it's not even really that dark compared to the other shades in store.

I really love seeing people/pictures in really dark lipstick tho, so jelly that they're able to pull it off so well haha. Am super itching to try out the Matte in Dark Red & Dark Side tho. Leave me a comment to tell me what you think & if you like this review and that I should do more stuff like these :) Xx.
