MAC Viva Glam Nicki 2 Lipstick
MAC Viva Glam Nicki 2 Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “pastel lavender pink” with an Amplified finish. It’s a cool-toned, lavender pink with a creamy finish and natural sheen. MAC Budding Love is darker. MAC Fresh Amour is purpler. MAC Quite Cute is a touch pinker. MAC Pink Friday is darker, pinker. MAC I Like It Like That is darker, pinker. MAC Blooming Lovely is a little grayer and darker. MAC Viva Glam Gaga is pinker and darker.
Viva Glam is by far one of my favorite charitable beauty causes, because it really does give back–the full selling price of the lipstick. It’s not just a gimmick where they give some unknown “portion of proceeds” or a dismal 5%. Viva Glam Nicki 2 is fully opaque and has good slip and glide. It didn’t pull or tug at the lips while I applied the color from the tube. When I wore it, the shade lasted four and a half hours, and it was neither drying nor hydrating during that time. This color did seem to make my teeth appear a little yellower.
