MAC Stroke of Midnight/Viva Glamorous Lip Bag

MAC Stroke of Midnight/Viva Glamorous Lip Bag ($30.00 for 0.27 oz.) includes a lipstick and lipgloss, both the original edition of Viva Glam. Do you know the best part about this bag? Every single cent of the price goes towards the MAC AIDS Fund. Not $1, not proceeds, but the whole thing. If neither of these colors are up your alley, consider one of the other shades in the Viva Glam family if you haven’t. Both of these shades are also available individually. Every single cent of every single Viva Glam product goes towards MAF.

Viva Glam I Lipglass is a muted, medium-dark red with brown undertones and a glossy shine. It had opaque color coverage and did not settle into lip lines. It lasted for four and a half hours. NARS Wonder (LE, $25.00) and NARS Hollywoodlawn (LE, $26.00) are both more orange. See comparison swatches.

Viva Glam I Lipstick is a medium-dark, slightly muted, red with brown undertones and a slight cool tone to it. It has rich, opaque color coverage, and the consistency is lightly creamy and glides on well. Viva Glam I has been a classic red for me for years; it’s a retro, toned down red that works on a lot of skin tones. It wore well for six hours and left behind a stain; it was neither drying nor hydrating. NARS 413 BLKR (LE, $26.00) is darker. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Role Play (P, $18.00) is similar. Giorgio Armani The Red (400) (P, $32.00) is less matte. NARS Majella (P, $25.00) is lighter. MAC Such Flare (LE, $15.00) is cooler-toned. Guerlain Luxure (P, $49.50) is similar. Make Up For Ever #44 (P, $19.00) is warmer, brighter. See comparison swatches.
