MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande #2 swatches & review

“I’ve been there all night, I’ve been there all day…” Oh hey! Welcome back to a fresh new beauty post! Today I’m reviewing Ariana Grande for MAC part 2!

She’s back! with 2 new additions to the Viva glam family. As you know every year MAC releases special edition Viva Glam lipsticks & lipglasses signed by a well known celebrity, where all the proceeds go towards helping women, men & children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. They release 2 sets of these a year and this year’s chosen celebrity to promote the campaign is Ariana Grande. In case you were wondering what the first set of Viva Glam Ariana Grande looked like, then check out my ‘Viva Glam Ariana Grande lipstick & lipglass swatches & reviews’ post here.

The 2 new shades: ‘Viva Glam Ariana Grande II’ lipstick & lipglass


The lipglass is described as ‘neutral nude pink’ (RRP $35)

It’s a beautiful shimmering nude-mauve lipgloss with a sheer yet buildable creme finish. It’s a lovely nude colour infused with tiny little sparkles and has a lovely muted vanilla scent. It’s a great colour for everyday wear on its own or on top of nudes paired with a bold eye look. The lipglass lasts on for a couple of hours (no eating involved) and doesn’t dry the lips. Lips appear smoother & feel conditioned. It sits comfortably on the lips and doesn’t feel overly sticky. I love this colour, it’s one of my favourites for everyday as it’s very neutral and goes well with most makeup looks & skin tones.


The lipstick is described as ‘deep cool pink’ (RRP $36)

It’s a bright cool toned magenta purple-pink lipstick with a matte creme finish. It has full colour coverage and applies easily and smoothly. This lipstick doesn’t require a lip liner, it sits nicely & firmly on the lips. It lasts on for a few good hours before leaving a lovely bright stain.  It smells like vanilla and can be worn under the ‘Viva Glam Ariana Grande II’ lipglass for a shiny glossy look! This lipstick is lovely for a summery bold lip look or for a fun night out.

Viva Glam Ariana Grande (first release)

I personally love this year’s Viva glam line! The lipstick colours are bold yet wearable & the lipglasses are delicate & neutral. Best thing is you can layer them together & play with them to suit your liking. Would you dare to wear these colours?
