Death of a Lipstick: My Viva Glam Cyndi
I am mourning the loss of one of my most beloved lipsticks, MAC’s Viva Glam Cyndi. She’s not completely gone but she ain’t pretty anymore.
I have had VG Cyndi since it was released a couple years back. Quite frankly, like many a lipstick I covet and acquire, it ended up in a pile and didn’t get much attention. Sometimes I would ‘rediscover’ it in my collection and proclaim my love for it again. (link)
It happened again recently when I started to wear it weekly. But something happened along the way. VG Cyndi started to get softer and softer until finally…sppplaaaat. The actual lipstick fell off, and almost into my bathroom sink. Luckily I was able to catch it but in doing so, it got a little bit mangled. It got even worse when I tried to put it back in the tube. Disaster. Total disaster.I know I can salvage it a bit and use a lip brush to apply. But it’s not the same.
I am kicking myself for not buying a back-up. Why didn’t I listen to myself when I had a chance? (link)
I am at a loss. And sad. Unless MAC releases it again, I’m now officially on the hunt for a Viva Glam Cyndi dupe.
