I’m sure after a year of red, a la RiRi Woo, a lot of people were pretty red lipstick’d out. Especially after her Viva Glam lipstick turned out to be red too. I was so over it! Fast forward a few months later and now I’m pretty much obsessed with red lipsticks. I don’t know where it came from but I’m definitely digging it! I’ve always been a pink lip kind of girl but a nice red lipstick just makes me feel powerful and sexy. Glam is the newest addition to my red collection but it’s already become my favorite!
Glam is a bright, creamy pinky red with a matte finish. I absolutely adore the color because it’s not too bright (like True Love’s Kiss) or too flashy (like Viva Glam Rihanna). Glam is the perfect shade of red! It’s soft enough to wear during the day yet still sexy enough for a night on the town. The formula is quite dreamy too! It’s actually hard to believe that it’s a matte because it feels so creamy and wasn’t drying at all. I’m quite impressed! Some of my MAC matte lipsticks feel a little drying and settle into lip lines but this wasn’t an issue at all with Glam. It applied smoothly and evenly with excellent pigmentation. It also didn’t accentuate any dry patches. Glam is very kind to my dry lips! The wear time is also extremely impressive. Glam just doesn’t come off! It wore comfortably for well over 6 hours before I noticed any signs of fading. Once it started to fade, it left behind a quite vibrant stain that lasted for over 4 hours. It’s certainly not a lipstick you’ll have to touch up multiple times a day!
I’m very surprised that Glam is still available online at MAC! I know MAC has put out quite a lot of red lipsticks lately but Glam is a beautiful color and the formula is fantastic. I’m actually considering ordering a backup tube because I love it so much! If you’re still building up your red lipstick collection like me I highly recommend ordering Glam. You won’t regret it!
