    I might be tempted to buy Lady Gaga’s color in lipgloss form.

    Those bags are going to sell out in less than an hour.

  2. Kathy


    The Viva Glam Cyndi lipstick is quite possibly one of the prettiest shades I’ve ever worn. I’m looking forward to the lipglass!

  3. Michou

    While I may not be able to wear an opaque lipstick of these colors, I think I could definitely get away with Cyndi in a more sheer tone. :)

  4. Katie

    THIS MADE MY DAY!!!! Thank you for posting!!!!
    I’m definitely getting both lipglasses and the Gaga bag. I love both of the lipsticks so much. Viva Glam Cyndi is the first red lipstick that I felt super confident wearing and though Gaga is super pink, I love rockin’ it anyway because I love Gaga<3

    • Alex

      Same! The Cyndi is the first red lipstick I felt wearing too!! And I feel confident enough to even wear the Gaga bright pink to school :) LOVE gaga♥ Super excited to but BOTH lipglassesssss!!!!!!

  5. aksaiyo

    ooohhh! I’m SO getting Cyndi in lipglass form!!

  6. Wendy M.

    Definitely buying Cyndi lipglass! 😀

  7. Beth

    I love Cyndi, but I rarely wear lipstick. I will be getting the gloss, though, I wear gloss most days!

  8. Jazz

    I want viva glam cyndi – even though I didnt get the lipstick.

  9. Vianca

    im excited for this 2!
    maybe Gaga’s lipglass will look better on me than the l/s & i think im gettin Cyndi anyway…

  10. I might need the Gaga gloss. I passed on the Cyndi lipstick because I have a lot of reds right now and not a lot of storage. I wear the Gaga lipstick almost everyday – I’m very pale and it works so well with my skin tone! I need a backup STAT!

  11. I got both the lipsticks, sight unseen, and swiped the Cyndi 3x…then I realized it was too coral/orange for me. The Gaga lipstick is just too…too…IDK, but I can’t wear either of them in lipstick form. A gloss may be more forgiving, so I’ll be sure to hit those. 😀

  12. Kelly C.

    FInally, a launch that excites me, and it only has four products! I absolutely love the Cyndi lipstick, so I’ll be buying the lipglass for sure. Maybe two. Whilst I buy another backup of the lipstick.

  13. Lia

    I am definately getting both!!

  14. Tiffany

    wooohooo! finally a lipglass for both!

  15. Judy

    You know MAC. You are really driving me nutty with all these fabulous collections. I can’t keep track and I don’t think I can save for all of them. Augh! I wish you would do a special promotions sometime, like buy one item get one free or 50% off. I missed the Cyndi & GaGa lippies when they came out because I wanted to save for another collection. Can’t wait to see the swatches of these lipglasses.

    • Halo

      i agree i love mac but they’r too “classy” to make sales. Nobodies going to buy anyhting if they don’t give us a break once in a while lol

      • Shianne

        I know I know! It can definitely appear unfair to not offer sales/free gifts buuuuut, what a lot of cosmetic companies don’t tell you is that when they offer “sales” or “gifts with purchases” they ultimately will increase prices on their products to account for any “losses” incurred. Although it appears MAC is being stingy, it is truly a way to keep price points lower in comparison to other “high end” cosmetic companies to make things consistently more affordable.

        • Laura

          MAC gives back and that is the most important thing they do. Both the Gaga + Cyndi lipstick sales goes to AIDS relief. It is your choice to buy it or not.

    • vickie

      You didn’t miss out on the cyndi and gaga lippies…there going to be available for a whole year from the dàte they came out…which I think was in feb.

    • Katie

      You can still get both lipsticks until February or March 2011. My MAC rep. said March. I agree with the other poster who said that it wouldn’t be very classy on MAC’s behalf to promote items for sale like CVS and Walgreens. They have to keep their reputation as solid as other competitors like NARS, Lancome, or MUFE. Still, it would be nice though considering for what I spent at MAC in the last two months, I could’ve bought three iPods.

      • Yeah, the way I view Stila has changed, because they DO have sales so often. It’s to the point where 20% off isn’t good enough — I’ll wait for them to do 40% off.

  16. sass

    I’m glad the glam bags are coming back…I missed my op to get the gaga one. Anyway, I’ll be buying both lipglasses for the cause.

  17. Kristin

    The glosses are the same exact shades as the lipstick and have their signatures on the outside like the lipstick tubes have on them when you take the cap off…oh and they are limited edition and will be available for 6 months only :)

  18. Jennifer

    OMFG I am buying two tubes of the Cyndi one for sure! I love love the lipstick version. It’s the perfect red/coral.
    I do have the gaga lipstick, but that type of pink doesn’t look best on me and isn’t me really.

    You have officially made my day Christine!

  19. Miss_Silk

    hmmm if the lipglass form of Cyndi’s lipstick color is similar….I might buy it because I love the that color! Buuutttt… mom took my lipstick because she loves it too TT

    so when this gloss comes out….i’ll pick it up with another Cyndi lipstick haha

    …then again I might end up buying two lipglasses because…my mom might take that too O__o;;

  20. Katy

    Are they still going to be for charity?

  21. Vix

    Christine, do you know if these bags are the same ones that launched a few months back with the original Viva Glam Gaga/Cyndi lipsticks?

    I managed to get my hand on one of those (the Gaga bag), but if these are different I might be tempted…

  22. jamie

    im excited for this (: <3 gaga

  23. Diane

    The viva glam Gaga is the prettiest pink lipstick I have ever found. I can’t wait for the lipgloss version of this. Why is Mac’s best products limited edition? I don’t understand the reasoning for ending such a successful promotion that goes for a good cause.

  24. Helena

    Oh I’ll definitely buy both 😀

  25. Ryan

    So there the same shades? They should have done somthing a little different like maybe a plum shade and orange shade so its more fun for layering. But im still getting 3 of each anyway.

  26. Chloe

    i may get both of the lip glosses just becuase it is for such as great cause plus vivaglam cydni is the best red lippie ever !:P

  27. Lacey

    I cannot wait for this!!! Does anyone know if these pictures of the gloss are legit? I am dying to know what they will look like. Does anyone have any information on them yet? If they are coming out in 3 or 4 weeks I’m surprised we haven’t seen anything yet? I also want to know what the bags look like!

    • I’ve never seen those pics before, so thanks for sharing, Lacey! I don’t know if they’re legit or not, since I haven’t seen any official photos and haven’t heard of that site before… but they look like they’re it – very similar packaging to the lipsticks (signatures on the outside) and the shades look about right.

  28. ofir

    OH MY GOD!!!!!!
    my faaaaavorite lipstick is lady gaga!!
    so now they will come out with a lipglass?!?!
    i’ll buy two of them !!!
    and maybe one cyndi 😉

  29. SusyLovesMac

    Just and FYI ladies…I found some photos of the lipglass tubes here :) they even have the signatures just like the lipsticks

  30. Honeys

    i’m so excited! can’t wait for their lipglass collection.
    i got Viva Glam Gaga lippie.
    i’m so gonna get Viva Glam Cyndi lipglass ;D

  31. ooohhhh i cant wait for the gaga gloss,,,

  32. Tiffany

    Hi!Have you gotten any other info on these products yet?

  33. In case anyone is interested, here’s pictures and swatches:

    I’m even more excited now =)

    • Lacey

      I question the authenticity of these glosses in this link because the other link shows the red signature of Gaga and Cyndi. I am also surprised that Christine wouldn’t have them as well if another blogger has them, hmph. I am counting the days though until I get the Gaga Glass….SO EXCITED!

      • No, those are the real photos – they looked just like the ones I saw in the update book. I just don’t post blurry photos or ones that are below our quality standards :)

  34. Mara

    Definitely gonna pick up the glosses as well. :)

    Do you know whether the launch of the bags will be international? The last batch was US only, right?

      • Mara

        I can answer that now! :) At least here in Germany the bags will launch as well (so I guess that means international this time). According to my MAC counter they only will be available at MAC stores and not the counters. I’m not sure about online availability yet.

  35. Do you know when these will be available online?

  36. Natalia

    are the bags coming out the same time (august 9th) because i heard they come out in september, is that true? and do you have any pics of the bags?

  37. Lexy

    I love the Lady Gaga lipstick. I’m very fair skined and it’s the perfect pink. Do you know when Mac is dis-continuing the lady gaga lipstick?

    Do you know if you can order the Lady gaga makeup bags online in august? (either on nordstroms website or mac’s website?) I really want to get the makeup bag. I didn’t get them last time :/

  38. carly

    the bags are $28 and look like lips, it is in the newest September issue of teen vogue(:

  39. tina

    will the lipsticks still be available once the lip gloss come out?

  40. Natalia

    i’m looking forward to the bags and hopefully i can get one! i just have two questions, what do you mean by freestanding and do you think nordstroms might have them a day early?

  41. Natalia

    i’m looking forward to the bags and hopefully i can get one! i just have two questions, what do you mean by freestanding and do you think nordstroms might have them a day early? like would nordstroms have them today?

  42. Karen

    I just called my local MAC freestanding store. They said that the Viva Glam lipglass lauch date has been changed to September. Is that true? How come there is no update/news on the change?

    • I haven’t heard anything about a change in the date yet… I know that originally only certain locations were going to have them in August and September for others.

  43. Lacey

    No pictures of the bags yet?? It comes out tomorrow!! Can’t wait!

  44. Natalia

    i talked to my nordstrom rep and she said that the launch date isn’t the 9th anymore, but sept 2nd. is this everywhere?

  45. Lauren

    Neither nordstrom or has them up yet. my mall opens in litterally a half an hour so I will see if they have.

    • Call before you go, because it sounds like they changed the release date at the last minute.

      • Lauren

        Just yet to Nordstrom, the ladies insisted this products date was always September 2nd, the other stores like Macy’s, Bloomingdales, etc. said September 16th.

        • It sounds like they pushed the release date back by about 2 weeks then (since originally, it was August 9th for Nordstrom/freestanding, September 2nd for everywhere else). Thanks, Lauren!
