Unless you're very new to the beauty world (and it's totally okay if you are!), you are most likely aware of the Viva Glam lip product line from MAC Cosmetics. Every cent of the selling price from Viva Glam lip products goes towards helping the men, women, and child that are living with and/or are affected by HIV/AIDS, which is a very noble cause and good enough reason alone to purchase Viva Glam products, but MAC takes it one step further and partners with celebrities to come out with some pretty gorgeous colors! One of my first experiences with a MAC Viva Glam lipstick was the very first lipstick they collaborated with Lady Gaga on, and I regret to this day not actually purchasing it (I was young and penniless. Also it would have probably gone bad by now, but it's the principle of the matter).
When I first heard that this collaboration was going to be with Ariana Grande, I was pretty indifferent.
Overall, I'm happy I purchased this lipstick, if for no other reason than the fact that MAC does donate so much money to help people with/affected by HIV/AIDS. If this was a permanent color, however, I would give it a pass; even though it's a great color, especially if you love the vampy look, the formula is just not worth it.
Thanks for reading! <3
