MAC Viva Glam Nicki Lipstick!

Now i know you've all probably seen about 10275 posts about this lipstick. But, after wearing it a few times and to be honest, falling completely in love with it, i thought i ought to dedicate a full post to Viva Glam Nicki! As a huuuuge fan of Nicki Minaj i'd been lusting after this for ages and when it finally came to buying it i will a little unsure - my lips were chapped and it just looked a neon pink mess - after a bit of persuading off my mum that it did in fact look good i'm so glad i bought this! And when you know all your money (minus VAT) is going to a worthwhile cause - MAC's Aid Fund - what's not love to love?

 The usual sleek, black bullet that accompany's all MAC lipsticks with red accents instead of the usual silver and Nicki Minaj's signature printed inside with is a really nice addition.

Colour: Described as a 'bright yellow pink' which is more than true! My first words when i tried this on was "woah thats bright!" This a statement shade - definitely not for the light-hearted! I don't think the pictures do this justice - as it really is a bright, neon pink! I think this will work best on lighter-medium skin tones - i am nc42 (mac) and this looks great with my tanned skin but i think it may look a little too stark on very dark skin tones unfortunately! But i'd always recommend you try this out before making any decisions as it look's different on everyone.

Consistency: This is a satin shade - which is like a semi-matte finish and is highly pigmented! And i mean highly pigmented and bright! So you may want to dab this on to the lips so it isn't so 'in your face' or i apply it straight from the bullet and and rub it in with my fingers which just takes a bit of the colour off so it's not sooo bright!   This applies easily - no tugging or pulling and lasts for a long time (around 4 hours). After a while though it did sink into the lines of my lips - but a good lipbalm can solve that!

Overall, this is a bright, neon pink lipstick that is definitely worth the pricetag! Just make sure you exfoliate and add lipbalm to your lips before applying and your good to go!

  2. I REALLY want to get this lipstick! I can justify the price since it all goes towards charity, but I am having a friend of mine pick it up for me since he works at the Mall of America and they of course have a MAC counter there. I just can't pay $6 shipping on one lipstick. haha It looks great on you though!
