MAC Viva Glam Nicki - Review, Photos, Swatches

MAC you've got my heartbeat running away! I was beyond excited when I learned Nicki Minaj became a part of MAC Viva Glam family. I've always been a fan of the Viva Glam line, most especially because the proceeds go to a very deserving cause. My favorites have always been Viva Glam I and Viva Glam Cyndi because they're the most flattering on almost everyone. But because I love Nicki Minaj and pink lipsticks, this one is now my new fave from the said line. :)

Viva Glam Nicki is a pink lipstick in satin finish. This is my 3rd MAC lipstick in the said finish, and so far I'm loving it. They have the opacity and color payoff of matte finish without the drying feeling. The color is a pink strawberry milkshake kind with extra strawberries. Do you get me? It's the kind of pink that's not too bright, in-your-face kind, but won't wash you out either. It's lighter than MAC Impassioned.

I'm a self-confessed MAC lipstick addict, and I am proud of it. I'm willing to spend money on anything that's of high quality. Plus with the Viva Glam line, I just don't get to keep a pretty and quality lipstick, I'm also supporting a great cause.

PROS: The formula is awesome: satin finish, opaque, pigmented, long wearing, not drying. The shade I believe works for most if not all skin tones. The proceeds of this lipstick goes to a great cause.
CONS: It's a bit expensive (but definitely worth it, IMO).


  I will definitely repurchase!
