From the swatches I’ve seen of the lipstick, I don’t think I’ll be buying. But if the lipgloss isn’t frosty, I’m definitley in for that! I’m not sure how well these two products would go together though? I guess we will have to see swatches!

Every time I see a picture of her I think about how she’s apparently completely obsessed with only being photographed I the left side of her face.

And now she’s standing in front of a painting of her own face… and even that is, of course, the left. Ha.

Suzie Avatar

I don’t think she is obsessed with it, I automatically turn my face to show the right side on my face in pictures, I have absolutely no pictures with the left side of my face on it but I didn’t think about it till people mentioned it to me

While I love, love, LOVE deep lipsticks, this one looks to be a Cyber dupe, and that worries me. Because yeah, I can get away with Smoked Purple or Deep Love, Cyber is just too dark for me. Hoping it’s lighter!

I ‘ll be passing, the lipstick is not my type of colour and the lipglass seems to be so dupable,nothing new or special. Plus I got to start saving money for the whole retro matte liquid lip colour collection- literally can’t wait!

She’s a pretty girl, but not a big fan after the donut incident. And while I love purple lippies, it’s an odd choice for spring and might be too similar to other MAC lippies.

I was willing to look past that incident, if she just left it at that. However, when she blabbed on and on for 10 minutes on a YouTube video, in a failed attempt at an apology, that’s what really turned me against her. It was so obviously forced & insincere, with the monotone voice, crocodile tears, and eye rolling… Never mind her comments about hating America…

Katherine T. Avatar

A simple, sincere apology would’ve been great, but unfortunately it didn’t happen. I have to admit though, she has a great body and looks killer in that outfit. I think I’m going to have to start licking my donuts rather than eating them LOL

xamyx Avatar

As long as they’re *your* donuts, not on a tray, for others to buy, LOL!

It would have been best for her not to say anything at all. She also commented about “hating Americans”, then tried to justify it by saying she meant the eating habits of America as a whole; yet, she was in the donut shop, and the reason the donuts were left unattended was because she asked for “fresh” ones, which implies they were for her consumption. Then she blamed it on “youthful indiscretion”… Uuuummm, I was 22 once, and I don’t know of anyone who did anything like that…

I could not agree more! Plus, the color is such a weird choice for her and I don’t see how the 2 go hand in hand. Certainly a stretch for MAC that is for sure!

Lizzi Avatar

I have been buying every piece of Viva Glam since the Lady Gaga one. But I think I’ll skip this one because of the poor choice in spokesperson. Mac needs to up quality of who they choose to represent them.

Puffnstuff Avatar

I’m disappointed MAC chose her as a rep…the color makes me think of some dark purples MAC has released in the past 🙁
MACshouldve chosen MiMi to VG in addition to having her collex next ur 😉

Carrie Avatar

I may be indifferent to her, but I think she’s a good match for the brand in terms of what they try and do with Viva Glam.

The purple doesn’t grab me, but I may well grab that lipgloss. Looks like it could be a nice wearable color for me!

Caitlin Avatar

YAY! Finally an excuse to get a dark purple lipstick! It’s a weird colour choice for someone who is meant to be appealing to a younger audience but each to their own I guess! I really hope this gets a good grade since dark purples are notoriously bad performers but who am I kidding? I’m probably going to get it anyway, what with 100% of the selling price going to charity 🙂

Nicola Avatar

The lipstick looks kinda similar to Talk That Talk, which I sold because the retro matte finish was so freaking patchy :/ I’ll wait for the reviews but I love that they did another “unusual” color and not a red or a pink again.

Maya Angelou said that when somebody shows you who they are believe them. When she licked the donuts in the bake shop and said she hates America…I believed who she showed herself to be. I would not consider buying anything from this collection. MAC should do better.

A Avatar

I’m glad someone finally said this.

(And I’m a donut-eating American who hasn’t even liked any of the Ariana Grande songs I’ve heard so far, and I still think the ‘controversy’ surrounding AG sounds dumb.)

Fontaine Avatar

Nope. I wonder why MAC choose the celebrities that they do? Trying to appeal to a younger market maybe? These colours are uninspiring (to me! Just my opinion!)
A Sofia Vergara collection. Now THAT is what I wanna see. Or a mardi gras collection. Oh the possibilities!

Tova J Avatar

I absolutely adore Ariana! Imo Miley was a worse choice for Viva Glam haha. The colour is not what I would expect from her, but it’s pretty, so far so good!

Anastasia Avatar

Lol, she doesnt even were purple lipstick..I like to collect MAC LE tubes but I’m not sure. I really don’t like her after the donut incident..

Venus Star Avatar

Huge Ari fan here, and I literally started screaming when I saw this on Instagram! I’m probably just gonna get the lipglass because it’s light pink. I don’t really like dark lip colors.

Naomi Avatar

I’m not a huge fan of hers, but the lipstick and lipglass are gorgeous! I’ll definitely be getting both. And with all the proceeds going to such a good cause, is it really a deal breaker who the spokesperson is for the year?

Mio Avatar

I love Ariana, However in China you MUST test on animals and MAC sells in China which breaks my heart! So I apologise but I can not own this product.
