The shade does look more brown than pink while in the tube. My lips are quite pigmented so, the pink in the shade does not look so vivid while indoors but under daylight, it looks like the most gorgeous, shimmery pinky neutral ever! If you are wondering how this shade compares to MAC's Lovechild Lipglass, Lovechild is a bit more plummy with a golden sheen.
Since there isn't an overload of chunky glitter, I would like to call this work-safe too! If there is just one shade that I would love to pick from the Viva Glam range, it would definitely be Viva Glam V.
What do you think of MAC Viva Glam V?
