MAC Viva Glam Lipstick (photo heavy)

So I was lucky enough to win this gorgeous lipstick in Seonaid from Beauty And Baggage's giveaway.
Weirdly enough I don't actually own a good quality red lipstick (I had one of those crappy ones you get in gift sets when you're a young teenager that I threw out a few months ago) so I was so excited to actually get this!

 MAC Viva Glam Lipstick* £14.00 here

It looks quite dark in the tube but when swatched and applied liberally its really not that dark!

See? Nothing like it is in the tube! Which is why I would ALWAYS recommend swatching lipsticks in store or googling swatches if ordering online.

The great thing about the Viva Glam Range is all the money goes towards the MAC Aids Fund. 

''The full RRP (less VAT) from the sale of this lipstick is paid to MAC Aids Fund (registered UK charity number 114222) and goes towards helping women, men and kids everywhere affected by HIV and AIDS.'' -

Please excuse my extremely dry lips! Winter does not agree with them! I need to get a good lipbalm, I'm thinking Blistex relief cream? I dunno why I'm talking about this on a lipstick post!

Anyway, I realllllyyy like this lipstick! I think its a really pretty red, usually I don't like reds on me but I think I like this? What do you guys think of it?

Whats your favourite red lipstick?
