Guest Post ||Mac Miley Cyrus Viva Glam Collection from The World According to Jess

Hi There Dolls!
I’m Jess, author for The World According To Jess and I’m here to talk about one of my favourite Mac Collections, Miley Cyrus Viva Glam. I was so excited when I first heard about the upcoming Miley Cyrus Viva Glam collection, that I headed straight to Mac on the day of release to pick them up, just seeing these two products in their packaging made me fall in love.
Like all Viva Glam lipsticks from Mac (with exceptions on seasonal collections) they have the red Mac lettering and the red ring, still in the style of the classic lipsticks from Mac. Opening the lipstick you are met with even more red, in the form of the twisting sheath, and on it, the Miley Cyrus signature in black. I love all Mac lipsticks, and one of the big reasons why is it’s smell, the moment the lid comes off you can smell the vanilla scent of the lipstick. Twisting the lipstick up you are met with the most beautiful blue toned deep bright pink. The blue tones really work well for pale and yellow toned skin, but would also look great on darker skin as well. The lipstick just glides onto the lips, without drying them out. It is an Amplified lipstick, this means that the lipstick has a higher pigmentation, with a semi-matte finish. That hint of a glossy shine really ups the ante and helps give off a fuller lip look. This lipstick does leave a stain, so you don’t have to keep topping up colour throughout the day. If you don’t want that bright bold look, apply to the centre of the bottom lip, and taking a brush or your finger blend out over the top and bottom lip. This will leave the lips with a touch of colour and stain, so it doesn’t need to be reapplied. You can even glam up the look further with a touch of the Miley Cyrus Lip Glass.

I am not a huge fan of lip glosses, so I didn’t really think that I would like this product, but I really do. Again with all Viva Glam Lip Glasses, they look exactly the same as the classic collection, with the addition of the red signature. Just looking at the Lip Glass makes you want it, with its pink colour and silver, blue and pink glitter shining away. The application process is super easy, as you just apply it with the wand, and surprisingly it glides onto the lips. You can apply it very lightly, just to give a glaze to the lips or slightly thicker to show off more of the pink colour. The problem I find with the Lip Glasses is that they feel a little taky when the lips are opening and closing, but it doesn’t feel sticky. What I mean is that it doesn’t feel like your lips will stick together, it feels more like hair would stick to it. There is a hint of vanilla with the Lip Glasses but nothing near as strong as the lipsticks. For that full glamorous look, add the gloss on top of the Viva Glam Miley lipstick, this makes the lipstick colour stand out more and in some lights makes the glitter shine. The glitter looks much more subtle when applied on top. But, don’t just stop there, you can apply this Lip Glass to any lipstick you want, it’s just so versatile.  The blue glitter can be made more apparent when applied on top of a purple lip colour, great for adding a bit of glamour to an Autumn/Winter look.

If you only pick up on thing from the collection, make it the lipstick, as I haven’t found any Mac lipsticks that are the same. Pick them up while stocks last, as you don’t want to miss out.
Stay Gorgeous
