Viva Glam Taraji 2

Disclaimer: I do not own the photos
My heart skipped a beat today when I read that my favorite actress has collaborated with Mac Cosmetics to bring a part two to us and expand the Viva Glam family.
If you are not familiar with Mac Cosmetics Viva Glam line, it's a charity line dedicated to help bring shelter, food, clothing,and medicine to men, women, and children affected with the H.I.V and/or Aids virus. 100% of the proceeds goes to the Mac AIDS fund.
The collection will feature a sexy copper lipstick and a beautiful goldish bronze lip glass perfect for medium to deep skin tones.
The lipstick and lip glass will hit stores in the U.S September 7th!!! Will you be adding them to your collection??
Ps. Keep in mind like all Viva Glam lipsticks and lip glasses they are limited edition, When Mac partners to bring a new Viva Glam lipstick and lip glass the older ones become discontinued so if you loved Taraji's first Viva Glam collaboration stick up before it's gone forever!!!

Viva Glam Taraji P. Henson



Hello dolls!!
How was everyone Valentine’s Day? I am single so I had a wonderful galentines day complete with a nice dinner and some wonderful gifts. I received the Viva Glam Taraji P. Henson lipstick and lipglass by Mac Cosmetics..I was super surprised it was on my wishlist. Before I get into my first impression, I want to remind you that every purchase of this lipstick or any other Viva Glam lipstick or lipgloss or glass goes to the Mac Aids Fund which helps with medicine, food, clothes etc for men, women,and children affected by the HIV or Aids virus.
Viva glam Taraji is a matte, pinkish red lipstick that compliments every skintone. I am a yellow undertone so it shows up on me as a reddish pink.
My first impression is i like it. I have not worn the lipstick alone, for Valentine’s look i decided to pair them together.
The lip glass is also a pinkish red that compliments every skintone. The lipglass has a sort of glittery undertone to it that makes it fun to wear. I think both would do good on their own but great together.
The lipstick was definitely long lasting i wore it for like 4 to 6 hours. I will definitely do another look for my YouTube video so be on the look out!
Dupes for the lipstick is
💋Wet n Wild “Cherry Picking” which is also matte but slightly darker
💋Revlon Cosmetics “Cherries In The Snow” which is a creme. I don’t know if Revlon still sells this lipstick though. The Wet n Wild one is a permanent among their line. “Cherries In The Snow” is also tad darker
I don’t wear lipglosses as much I am not a fan so i can’t give you any dupes but I would start with the Wet n Wild line first.


Halsey for Mac


She’s here..the Halsey’s lipstick by Mac. I was going to pass but i thought this lipstick might be different from my other gray lipsticks,being that this lipstick has a blue undertone. As you can see from the swatch, the undertone is evident.
I have compared this lipstick to Nyx liquid lipstick “Stone Fox” though they are very much in the same family. They are different. “Stone Fox” is a liquid so it will be more pigmented and also Stone Fox is a warmer gray more of a smokey gray. While Halsey is cool. I love that they are both matte.i cannot wait to do a look and have swatch dupes for you .

Mariah Carey for Mac


Hi beauties!!! I recently gotten a new phone and its so aggie when you have to reload apps and remember passwords lol.
She’s here..Mariah for Mac. Mariah Carey teamed up with Mac Cosmetics to release a limited edition lipstick for Christmas, called “All I Want”, based off her best selling Christmas Album and song. The lipstick is a champagne frost. I swatched it today and it is a frost lol. I went into my Mac container to see if there was a dupe so far nope. It reminds me of a Wet n Wild lipstick, but that lipstick is a rose gold. I will come back with a dupe post when I do find one.

Brooke Candy for Mac


Hi beauties thought I would share a fall trend alert with you. If you are on Instagram follow Mac Cosmetics and Trendmood1 to stay up to date with all beauty brands and of course I will keep you in the know as well 😁😁😁
I first must say, I do not know whom Brooke Candy is and I apologize,but I will say her lipstick plus her two collection with Mac has peeked my interest. This dark,berryish lipstick will be in my collection. From the picture it reminds me of instigator,rebel,film noir, etc, and any other dark,goth lipstick,but it has peeked my interest and I must have it. I cannot wait to see what else is in the collection and share it and of course when I do buy I will give my complete and honest opinion
