MAC Viva Glam x Taraji P Henson Lipstick and Lipglass

MAC Viva Glam Taraji P Henson Lipglass and Lipstick Review | The Beauty Look Book

The latest MAC Viva Glam launch is a collaboration with Taraji P. Henson with coordinating shades of Lipstick and Lipglass ($17 each). I always get excited when I see a new MAC Viva Glam launch. Sometimes the colors aren’t really my cup of tea but I look forward to their new creations and it’s fun to see who they collaborate with to promote their Viva Glam campaigns. For those who love a good classy fuchsia, bright colors or something fun this launch is definitely for you. I gravitate towards more subtle neutrals but the Viva Glam Taraji P. Henson shades include stunning fuchsia raspberry in a lipstick that has a matte shimmer pearl and a matching lipglass that has the prettiest shimmer. Both have really good coverage and pigment. Layering one of the other just intensifies the color. Can we also take a moment to oooh and ahh at the pretty packaging? I think the special-edition colors MAC has launched with colorful shades is so fun. The Shadescents lipsticks included.

Bottom line gorgeous. These aren’t my everyday kind of colors but I still find them really beautiful. If you watch the film online at MAC’s site you’ll see how it looks on darker skin tones – it appears more plum and cool-toned on Taraji (love the mini film!) but it looks absolutely gorgeous on her. You can find the MAC Viva Glam Taraji P Henson shades at all MAC stores and counters now. Online at MAC Cosmetics, Nordstrom, Macy’s and Saks Fifth Avenue.

Have you checked these out yet? If not what are your go-to raspberry fuchsia lip shades?

    I ordered them yesterday from Nordstrom. Such gorgeous shades, even if they are quite bold. I think they’ll be great for a statement as it swings toward Spring and definitely a great Summer shade.

      Oooh excited for your haul! I agree they’ll be great for summer as well, I can’t get over how pretty that matte pearl is πŸ™‚

    This looks like such a great colour! Very similar to Viva Miley Cyrus. I’m still waiting for this to be released in in the UK as I haven’t seen it yet! Thanks for sharing

      Ooh I loved that color! The Miley one is a lot sheerer, a lot more sparkly and lighter but similar color family πŸ™‚ at least for the lipgloss ????

    It’s a really bright combo. Perfect for spring and summer.

    I am so excited for this! I love the limited edition Mac packaging, and the shade looks so pretty. I think I may need to go to Mac soon πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing

      I think it’s a great duo!

  • Eileen February 4, 2017 at 8:18 am

    Wow! What a statement making combo–glamorous, but not garish. The color looks absolutely stunning on you. I usually quickly scroll through the pictures before going back to read the reviews. My first thought when I saw your lip swatches was I don’t care whether the product is good or not, I’m going to make it work πŸ™‚ As spring approaches, I think many of us are getting ready to put aside our deeper more muted shades in favor of something clear and bright. This Viva Glam launch is just in time.

    The most gorgeous color.

    These colors do look fun. Very vibrant and happy. I still have had trouble posting here, especially when I try from the iPad. I am able to read but having trouble posting.
    Thanks and have a nice weekend.

    Oh wow! This shade looks incredible on you! Man, I really need to pick up that gloss (I know I probably won’t wear the lipstick). Thanks for this great post!

  • Casey February 6, 2017 at 3:59 pm

    I haven’t bought anything from MAC in at least a decade if not longer, I kid you not; but I just had to order both of these over the weekend because…..Hellooooo it’s Taraji, AND a great cause. I’m excited for them to arrive!

  • Beauty that walks February 6, 2017 at 5:17 pm

    I love the look of that lipglass.

  • Style Domination February 7, 2017 at 6:15 pm

    Honestly – they pop against your skin! Truly beautiful on you!
