Shade 1 of the Mac Viva Glam provides a matte coverage of a dark maroon red shade. The formula is creamy and creates a thick coverage, a matte surface with premium staying power. The rich deep tone creates the perfect alternative to a typical vibrant red.
The price is fairly steep at £15.50 but seems justified as after 2 months of use the lipstick is barely dented. The price also befits the standard, as the lipstick rarely needs a top up. The only downside being the matte formula breaking up on dry lips, meaning it’s not always the best in these winter months.
To me, the shade is the ultimate deep red and creates the perfect vamp look.
