MAC Viva Glam VI Special Edition Lipstick Review and Swatches

April 1, 2009

Though described as a “soft blue pink”, I did not see much cool undertones in the new MAC Viva Glam VI Special Edition Lipstick. On me, it showed up as a your-lips-but-better rosy color which is perfect for everyday. Thanks to its Lustre formula, it is also fairly moisturizing and easy to wear. I will definitely be wearing this a lot.

    I bought this as soon as I read your post! Totally in love with this lip stick, topped it off with the SE lipgloss today and all my friends were asking what I am wearing today 🙂

    Oooo sounds like a good idea Annie! I left my Viva Glam VI Lipglass in Chicago but I’ll definitely try out this combo when I get back =)

    Hi Phyllis, I can’t tell from the picture but does the lip color have tiny sparkles/glitter shimmery stuff in it for the glimmer?

  • Reply Phyllis April 7, 2009 at 12:29 pm

    No it doesn’t contain any kind of shimmer/glitter.

    That looks just like the lipstick I’ve been looking for. It looks pink/coral on my computer. I used to wear a L’Oreal lipstick that was pink/coral and EVERYBODY asked me what I was wearing. L’Oreal discontinued it for some damned reason and I ran out so I’ve been looking for a color like it for years. I guess I’ll have to spend the money and buy MAC to get that color again. Is it a pink/coral or does it just look like it on my computer?

    Hi again,
    I just went looking for this and MAC has 3 VI’s. Which one are you showing? I looked at the description but their website says nothing about a “soft blue pink”. They all are described as “plums”. hmmmmmm

    I’m sorry, (you’re thinking I’m nuts by now ;))I found the description under the color swatch. I was looking in a different place for it.
