Sneak Peek: MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 Lipglass

Hi, everyone! Last week I shared the launch info for MAC's newest Viva Glam release- a second collaboration with Ariana Grande! The collection features both a lipstick and lip gloss and today I'm here to give you all a peek at the latter- Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 Lipglass**.

In case you don't know what the Viva Glam family is all about, MAC created the range to honor the brave men and women struggling with HIV/AIDS and all who stand by them. 100% of the proceeds of all Viva Glam products are donated to the MAC AIDS Fund, which provides support to both local and domestic AIDS charities. It is a true gem in the beauty world! 

MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 Lipglass** comes in the brand's typical Lipglass packaging, but with a red Ariana Grande autograph graphic added to the tube. 

MAC describes this gloss as a "neutral nude pink". In the tube, it looks like a light-to-mid-tone mauve pink with noticeable shimmer. 

The glitz in this shade is definitely noticeable, with both golden and silver microglitter throughout. Definitely unique!

The Lipglass has a typical doe-foot applicator that is fairly short and rounded in shape. I don't mind the small-ish size. It makes for a precise application! 

And here is a swatch of MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 Lipglass** on my inner arm (MAC NC15 skin tone):

As you can see, the glitter/shimmer is quite noticeable, but does not look (or feel; take my word for it) sharp or chunky. It almost looks holographic! And the base shade itself is just how I like nude lip colours to be- not too pale and neither too warm or cool. It's really a beautiful balanced neutral mauve pink! 

I'm absolutely smitten with this gloss- despite the nude hue and the glitter, it is incredibly wearable and looks ultra flattering on the lips! Not only is it stunning and sexy, but it supports an amazing cause! 

The MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande 2 collection is available online September 1st and in-stores September 8th.

Stay tuned for a review of the full collection (including a stunner of a lipstick) soon!

Have you tried any Viva Glam lip products? Favourites? What's your go-to nude gloss at the moment?
