Swatch : MAC Viva Glam Cyndi Lauper Edition Lipstick and Lipglass

I'm not a huge MAC aficionado, probably because of the price. Plus, MAC are well know for their eyeshadows, which I rarely use, so, I rarely purchased from them. However, I like the black, bullet like packaging for their lipsticks as it looks chic and stylish. Again, I rarely buy MAC lipsticks because I don't really  want to pay for Rp 195,000 for a lipstick that I seldom use. However, do keep in mind that I have nothing against MAC, it's just out of my price range. 

Having said that, I confess to buying one MAC lipstick and lipglass from the Cyndi Lauper collection. I know that this collection is old, but I realized I never did a swatch for both lipstick and lipglass. You're probably wondering why I splurge and got these items. It's because MAC will be donating every cent they make off the Viva Glam lipstick and lipglass to the people affected by HIV/AIDS. Well, that's good enough for me.

MAC Viva Glam Cyndi Lauper Lipstick and Lipglass

I would use it for big nights out like weddings because it's only for 2 hours max and by then the lipstick would've probably worn off from my lips. I tend to bite my lips, so lip products doesn't stay that long on my lips. 

The lipstick doesn't really dry out my lips, but it does feel a bit heavy (Note: I RARELY use lipstick) for me. I find the color to be reddish coral, which (weird enough) suits my skin tone. It's not a very vibrant color, so it's suitable for everyday use.

The lipglass is opaque enough to be used on its own. I find the texture a bit sticky, but again, probably just my personal preference. 
Left is the lipstick, right is the lipglass 

Overall, I like the lipstick, as it makes my face looks fresh and cheerful. I don't quite like the lipglass as it's a bit sticky for my liking.
