MAC Lipstick in Viva Glam Nicki


  I'm not a fan of either Nicki Minaj or her music but I am a fan of MAC's Viva Glam line as 100% of the profits of these lip products go towards helping people with AIDS and HIV.  New Viva Glam products tend to come out every February so you'll only have a few more weeks to pick this lipstick up if you're interested.

  Viva Glam Nicki is a bright warm toned pink in a Satin finish.  It is very neon in real life which I found hard to capture in a picture.  Unlike the permanent line of MAC lipsticks which have silver and black tubes, this is housed in a pretty red and black tube with Nicki Minaj's signature on it.

  I'm admittedly not crazy about this colour.  I think it would look better on someone with darker skin than mine.  It is something I'd be more likely to wear in the summer which might be why I felt a bit "blah" about wearing this last week.  The formula of this lipstick is perfect though.  It feels very comfortable on, is long lasting, and doesn't bleed.

  If this weren't limited edition I don't think I'd re-purchase this shade.  I like it enough to use it up though.  I am however super excited for this years Viva Glam shade which is a lavender pink.  You can read about it on Temptalia.

Availability: MAC Cosmetics $18

  5. Hi Christine, do you have a lipstick which does not look good on you? Seriously!
    This shade looks great on you, but once again my love for nude lipsticks prevents me from even thinking about going neon like this!

  8. Woah, I actually think this suits you very well! I can understand why you think it would look better on darker skintone, but at the same time it would look much brighter. It's very pretty on you!

    1. Thanks Annick :) Yeah I feel like it's meant to be a lighter pink but since I'm so pale it looks dark which can look a bit weird with a bright shade.
