I'm back! Sorry I haven't blogged for a while, I've been mega busy and haven't had a spare half hour to rustle up a post due to revision and numerous outings and appointments.
Mini review/lipstick swatches post today. I'm aware I'm a little late on the Viva Glam Nicki bandwagon but I've been debating whether to get this or not since it came out. A few weeks ago Stephanie from An Aesthetic Rush tweeted she was getting rid of her MAC Viva Glam Nicki lipstick, and who wanted it for £7? I did! The royal mail took flippin' ages to deliver this as it only came yesterday and Stephanie sent it about 3 weeks ago? Ridiculous. Anyway on with the post...
MAC Viva Glam Nicki is MAC's latest Viva Glam creation in partnership with Nicki Minaj. I have the Viva Glam Gaga 2; what I love about these is that all the money excluding VAT goes to a HIV and AIDs charity which makes buying these rather guilt free!
|Sorry the lipstick has been used! It ha been used once by Stephanie and then I used it before realising I hadn't taken any photos. Ooooops.|
The packaging is black and red as opposed to the usual black and silver. It has Nicki Minaj's signature on the inside too which is a nice touch.
Isn't it pretty!? It looks brighter in real life but I love it. It's a satin formula which I haven't tried yet but I did find it to be a little drying but nothing a lip balm can't fix. It's a glossy finish and the formula clings to the lips so it lasts a good 3 hours which is pretty average. What I really love about this is how pigmented it is; you gain full coverage in one swipe!
Only a brief review as I've reviewed MAC lipsticks before; it was just to show the swatches and what I thought of it. It definitely is a colour for the brave it will appear very bright on paler skins. I don't own anything like this so it's very welcome in my quickly expanding lipstick collection. A very pretty summery shade, but I am glad I didn't pay full price for it.
MAC Viva Glam Nicki is available for £13.50 from MAC stores and stockists.
Oh and by the way, my camera broke today... I dropped it and the lens won't go back in, so expect a lack of posts! I have a lot of photos on my memory card of products I've been using so I shall live off those until it gets fixed or I get a new camera... oops!
Do you have this? What do you think?Sophie x
