What's New: MAC Viva Glam Nicki Lipstick



What's New: MAC Viva Glam Nicki Lipstick..
Apologies if you've already seen millions of posts and videos about Viva Glam Nicki by MAC but I thought I might as well join in with the hype and I may have some readers who actually haven't come across them yet (which would be surprising). Those who have been following my blog from the start would have seen my post  last year about the release. I was actually excited but was hoping the shade wouldn't be like Pink Friday because in all honesty, I'm not sure if I really liked that shade. 
They finally released Viva Glam Nicki on March 1st but I was sent a pre-order code so I got it late February but it is now available for everyone to buy. 

This shade is quite different to 'Pink Friday' as it isn't much of a blue pink but more a pink with yellow undertones. Once again, I don't think I feel completely comfortable with this colour. It could just be that I'm used to wearing autumn shades but this lipstick is very bright. As soon as you take the lid off the casing, it just looks so bright; almost like a neon pink!

If you're a fan of bright pinks and you're not really fond of pinks with blue undertones, then you'll probably like this lipstick. As for me, I'm not sure if I'll be keeping mine but my mum also bought one (which I've swatched below) and she seems to like it and will be keeping the lipstick.
Finish: Satin
Collection: Limited Edition
Price: £13.50 (100% of the proceeds go to the MAC HIV/AIDS Fund)

What do you think of the shade? Did you purchase it or have any plans to?

  3. I was wondering if you would ever get round to talk about this lipstick. Honestly I think it's a horrible shade that doesn't work on the majority of people (but then again im baised against bright lipsticks).

    Maybe you should take a pic of your mum wearing the lipstick because I'm just not really convinced about this shade yet x
