Beauty - MAC Viva Glam Nicki Swatch & Review
No lipstick has been hyped quite as much as this lipstick from MAC. But is it worth the hype? Yes and No.
First let me say that I love the colour. I am a massive fan of bright lippies and this one fits the bill. It is the kind of pink that would suit multiple skin tones. It is quite pigmented which is a positive for me. My lips are quite naturally dark so good pigmentation is key. I haven't seen a shade like this before. I have MAC's Impassioned and it is a similar shade but this one is closer to bubblegum pink. This colour won't be everyone's cup of tea but I loved it.
So what are the negatives? It seriously lacks in the staying power department. Being quite bright it is quite noticeable as the lipstick starts to fade. But saying that - wearing it with my beloved lipcote really boosted its staying power.
All in all it is a rather fab lipstick and I will certainly get a lot of wear out of it. I love how you can totally see Nicki wearing this shade herself and it is raising money for a great cause.
£13.50 from MAC
