MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande Lipstick & Lipglass

MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “shimmering pink.” It’s a sheer, pink-tinted gloss with moderate gold and pink sparkle. It lightens my natural lip color slightly but yields primarily shine and sparkle. It can be layered over another lip color, including the lipstick. I noticed this particular shade seemed tackier than recent Lipglasses, though not quite as thick as The gloss lasted for three hours on me. Sephora Collection Good Fairy (LE, $14.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Rose de Lune (LE, $30.00) is more pigmented (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty Love Buzz (324) (P, $28.00) is warmer (90% similar). Chanel Eau de Rose (86) (LE, $27.00) is cooler (90% similar). Chanel Star (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery (90% similar).
