Favorite Mac Lipstick

Y’all know I LOVE my lipstick and my absolute favorite one (right now) is the MAC Miley Cyrus Viva Glam. Miley Cyrus haters, please bear with me. If nothing else, stick around for the giveaway at the bottom of the page!

I love the girl (but I don’t condone all of her life choices), but I know her antics aren’t for everyone. That being said, I think we can all agree that a) when she’s not being insane, she does know her beauty products and b) she has a good heart, especially for the less fortunate. In fact, she founded the Happy Hippie Foundation, which works to help homeless and underserved LGBTQ youth.

Before we get into the specifics of the lipstick, I want to point out that ALL proceeds of the Miley Cyrus Viva Glam lipstick go towards helping those who are affected by HIV/AIDS. So even if you don’t like Miley Cyrus and don’t want to support her financially, your money for this lipstick does not go to her pocket – it goes straight to help those who are dealing with the devastation that is HIV/AIDS…and that’s something I think we can all get behind.

Okay, now that we’re over that, on to the lippie!

The best part of the MAC Miley Cyrus Viva Glam lipstick is its versatility. If you’re afraid of a super bright hot pink, this is really the lipstick for you. If you like a crazy fab bright pink lip, this is also for you! It’s just bright enough to give you a perfectly pink pout with one swipe or you can do a few swipes and really bump up the glam! Most of the time, I prefer a few swipes but for this particular shoot, I kept it a little more demure.

I think this is pretty common for MAC lip colors but I just have to point out that the Miley Cyrus Viva Glam smells AMAZING. It has such a soft, sweet smell that seriously just makes you want to put it on your lips! The texture is really creamy and smooth but has great staying power. I wore it in the 100+ degree Texas heat and was sweating profusely, then ate and my lipstick still looked like this without ANY reapplication:

It's a MIRACLE this makeup made it through our insanely hot #diversitychic shoot. I'm not really a fan of "summer makeup" – I like how my skin looks with full coverage foundation so that's what I wear. Also bold brows, fake lashes, lips….basically I do what I want. Don't let people shame you for wearing "too much makeup" or for not wearing makeup at all. Do what you like. If you want a chiseled, contoured Kardashian face, DO IT! If you want to go makeup free 365 days a year, you do you! Love yourself and do whatever makes you feel the most beautiful…and brush off the haters. You've got bigger and better things to worry about anyway. xoxo. (Also how amazing is this @mileycyrus for Mac lipstick?)

Pretty bomb, right? No feathering, maybe a little fading but nothing too bad.

So the moral of the story is…this lipstick is amazing, and you should add it to your collection. Plus, the money goes to charity so you’d be crazy NOT to! Click here to buy it and get free shipping! AND guess what…I just found out yesterday that Miley has another shade coming out September 8, so get this one now and the new one in September

  1. Ok – so I love that this is your favorite lipstick color (for now!) – totally cracked me up!! And I would have NEVAH-EVAH even looked at a Miley lipstick, but this is gorgeous! Love the subtle pinkness… I will be checking this out in the store soon!
    xx, Karen

  2. I have to admit I am such a Miley Cryus hater lol but I gotta give the girl props for this lipstick! Lol. I am so scared to use anything but maybe a red and my new favorite (smashbox honey shade) but I’m certainly gonna check this out.

    Speaking of, I would love it if yall did a diversity chic- beauty edition where you showed how one beauty product looked on different shades! I have to admit sometimes when I look at beauty post I wonder how the lipstick, eye shadow etc. would look on my yellow-bronzed skin. There has to be a tried and true shade out there that works on all of us 🙂

    1. Haha I don’t blame you, she’s crazy. I mostly love her because I used to watch Hannah Montana…when I was in college….because that’s a normal thing to do hahaha.

      I texted the rest of the girls and we LOVE the idea of a beauty themed Diversity Chic! Thanks for the fab idea!!!

  3. I’m not a huge Miley fan either, but I always get so stuck between “oh she’s just growing up” and “she’s crazy”! I’ve been eyeing this for a little bit, but I’m wondering what it’d look like on me since it’s much brighter than what I usually wear.

    I love Kaylah’s suggestion about one beauty product on all of you for Diversity Chic!

    1. Yeah I go back and forth on that too haha. But the fact that she’s doing good for others shows me that there’s a good person under there. It wouldn’t surprise me if a lot of it is still just her trying to break out of the “Disney” persona. We get it, Miley haha.

  4. Such a pretty pink lippie! I do love that the money goes to a great cause too…that makes me want to buy it more. 🙂 Thanks for sharing and what a great giveaway you have going on!

  5. I had no idea she was doing so much good for others. I’ve always thought she was a little off the wall but I do love her. And this is even cooler. And loveeeee that color on you!

  6. I absolutely LOVE MAC lipstick so I will be adding this to my shopping cart asap! Such a pretty color on you!

    xo, Christina
