OK, so I love Ariana Grande as much as the next preppy cat-ear-wearing girl, but I’m getting impatient to own some Ari-approved lip gloss. Since the Ariana Grande x MAC Cosmetics collection doesn't hit the web until Jan. 19th, you may want to shop some similar shades in the meantime. These products will help you get similar lip looks, so you can practice your purple-y plum pout before you can get your hands on the real thing. But, hey, there’s nothing wrong with rocking some purple lipstick that didn’t come from the #VIVAGLAM line. I promise you, no one will ever know the difference.
Being that it’s only a two-piece collection, it’s likely to sell out quickly once it does hit stores. Even if you aren't able to snag up these products (or if you are only able to get one of them), you don’t have to miss out on totally working the same lip colors. Whether you’re more about the bold lip or the subtle pink shimmer, there are plenty of other lip products that will have you looking Grande-level good in no time.
Check out these six products that are so close to the #VIVAGLAM colors you won’t be able to tell them apart. At least they can tide you over until the release! Get ready to get your Grande-status glam on, because she would definitely approve of these lippies, too.
These are pretty amazing, but I think you'll see that these other products will still give you all of the Ari feels too.
1. Berry Black Lip Pencil
Berry Black Friday Lip Pencil, $20, MAC Cosmetics
This deep, rich color will have the same bold impression as Grande's purple shade.
2. Bright Purple Matte Lipstick
Smashbox Be Legendary Matte Lipstick In Bright Purple, $20, Sephora
Perhaps you're into a purple that's a little less dark. If so, this brighter shade will work perfectly for you.
3. Dark Purple Lip Lacquer
Black Up Lip Lacquer In Dark Purple, $23, Sephora
In case you happen to love a dark lip but would rather have a shiny look, opt for this dark purple lip gloss instead of a lipstick.
4. Pink Shimmery Lip Gloss
Super Lustrous Lip Gloss In Snow Pink, $7.99, Ulta
This will give you all of the pink color and glitter that you could ever want for an Ari-inspired look.
5. Creamy Pink Lip Gloss
Maybelline Baby Lips Creamy Gloss In Pink-a-Boo, $3.49, Target
This gloss has subtle shine and lots of pink color without all of the glitter, if that's what you're into.
6. Pink Glitter Lipstick
NYX Lipstick In Baby Pink, $3.99, Ulta
For long-lasting shimmer, try out this baby pink, glitter-filled lipstick.
Now, go out there and get your Grande glam on!
