MAC Taraji P. Henson Viva Glam II Collection Review


When the original Viva Glam with Taraji P. Henson came out, I ended up passing on it because if you know me, you would know that I'm more of a neutral, nude, brown type girl when it comes to lipsticks.  So when I saw the Viva Glam II collection, I was so excited and I knew I was going to pick it up, plus....I just love her shows and movies so I had to support..........

I purchased the Taraji P. Henson Viva Glam Lipstick ($17.50) which is a frost deep coppery brown with gold pearl shade. I also purchased the Taraji P. Henson Viva Glam LipGlass ($17.00) which is a bronze with gold pearl shade.  I purchased both at with using my Birthday Gift Card (yay me):

Information from MAC Cosmetics:

"She’s back with more GLAM than ever! Taraji P. Henson has built her own empire, winning over millions with her striking style and uncompromising confidence. For her return as VIVA GLAM spokeswoman, she infuses coppery brown Lipstick and Lipglass with gold pearl for regally seductive colour.
 Since 1994, every cent from the selling price of M·A·C VIVA GLAM Lipstick and Lipglass has gone toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Limited-edition packaging features Taraji’s signature."

Let's start off with the lipstick.............

It glides on very smoothly and it was also very creamy.  The color payoff is amazing and it lasted awhile with me eating and drinking throughout the day.  It also kept my lips very soft and didn't dry them out.  Also, I love the packaging with the hot pink with her signature.  This is truly the perfect Fall color for me.

Next, let's talk about the LipGlass..........

Again, another beautiful color for the Fall season.  This shimmer lipgloss can be used over the Viva Glam lipstick or on it's on.  It looks glittery on my lips but doesn't feel that way.  Just like the lipstick, it applied very smoothly and it's not sticky at all.  Basically, the lipgloss is popping:

Overall, I loved this collection.  The color is everything and didn't have any problems with the lipstick or the lipgloss.  If you are a lover of brown shades then this collection is made for you and I believe this would look good on all skin tones.  If you are interested in the Taraji P. Henson Viva Glam I or II collection, please hurry and pick it up since this is limited edition:
