MAC Viva Glam Nicki

Would you believe I’ve never bought a Viva Glam lipstick before. I know that sounds pretty ridiculous considering the amount of makeup I go through but for some reason the previous shades just never really appealed. I bought this one for a number of reasons. Firstly, I loved the promo shot for this, it totally sucked me in. It wasn’t necessarily Nicki herself, more the gigantic lipstick being held aloft by the lovely Ricky Martin and secondly, the shade itself looked quite interesting.

Upon closer investigation in the blogosphere, it seemed that yes this shade would appeal to me. A bright, very slightly rosy pink with a satin finish. I prefer to apply it more as a stain as a full on application looks more like er, Nicki Minaj. It’s a bit too bright when packed on, this might suit some but not me I’m afraid.

Here it is below in all it’s glory. Will you be purchasing, or have you already?

    I’m not sure if this shade would work for me as I generally haven’t really found a perfect pink lipstick. I’ve seen this worn on lots of other bloggers though and it’s a really fun, happy colour 🙂
