Pretty, and I appreciate Viva Glam’s charitable aspects, but I think it looks similar to some of the past Viva Glams and doesn’t particulary says Lady Gaga to me.

Kelsey Avatar

I think it’s really Gaga, there are several instances on the red carpet where she wears a gorgeous nude.
However, I do agree that it’s not a particularly unique colour.

TinoB Avatar

The colour might seem similar to previous ones but is a light warm beige and not a pale pink beige like VG2 or a neutral brown pink like VG5. The texture is also amplified wich means more moistre as well as colour pay off. The previous two mentioned above were a wash of buildable colour or a matte colour. So this new deliscious shade offers a different tone as well as texture more more to enjoy.

Kimmy Avatar

Its actually a very unique color. There is nothing else like it in the Viva Glam line. I have seen it in person, it is very pretty and totally different. Plus, it’s an amplified finish… making it the first amplified shade in of all the VG’s,

El Avatar

I respectfully disagree. I too, have seen this in person and it is nothing like any of the other colors in the VG line. It is a true beige neutral. The other colors that come anywhere near being a nude is VG II which is almost a grey-undertoned pink, VG V which is sheer with shimmer and VG Gaga I…blue-based nude pink. I don’t think everyone will be able to pull it off though but it is nice to see a true nude in the VG line.

Jami Avatar

ooooo man!!!! I realllyyyy love this lipstick!!! I still need to get at least one back up of the frist one but ill probably get a couple of these!!! This color is right up my alley!!!

Isabela Avatar

I love them, I just don’t like the prices… why is MAC making all the collections now with higher prices? and I know some products are bigger than normal, but the regular size comes with enough product already!!

El Avatar

I don’t think I would ever mind the prices on these as 100% goes to charity. I think of it as a charitable donation in which I get an awesome lipstick as thanks (rather than the typical reusable grocery bag or pen, lol)

Chelle Avatar

If even! I haven’t been able to purchase Viva Glam Cyndi since before December 2010. The bloody web site AND stores have been sold out for months now. I wasn’t too impressed because I expected them to still have them in stock until their stopsell date of February 2011. RAAAAAAAGE.

ashlee Avatar

OMG this looks just like MAC’s Fresh Brew but with an orange undertone…I was expecting something a little more “GAGA” this nude is too similar to Fresh Brew #MACFAIL

ak Avatar

An ‘Orange Fresh Brew’ sounds hot to me though. Because Fresh Brew always did have a bit of a very cold, grayish cast to it without lip pencil.

monica Avatar

this kinda looks like viva glam 2, which i already have. but even if it does, i might still end up getting it because it’s for a good cause. AND you can never have too many nude lipsticks.

Sarah Avatar

this lipstick looks amazing! i was going to get the heroine lipstick from the wonder woman collection but it seemed just a little TOO bronze for my taste. but this, looks like it would be my color!

Lolly Avatar

I love Gaga’s eyes in the promo shot, I really wanna try pull that off. I might pick the lipglass up depends on what its like up close and personal.

Maggie Avatar


Ryan Avatar

Its cool that this Lipstick/lipglass is synonymous with her upcoming album which will have more of a soulful and angelic feel to it. So it is totally lady gaga.

Gina Avatar

If the swatches are good, I might get both! I’m in need of a good nude. And when you combine that with Gaga and a good cause, it’s almost impossible for me to resist!

The profits are for helping people with HIV,women who got the virus after being raped,children,men so…Like it or not on my lips i will buy it.Even as a gift to someone.

Ebony Avatar

No,it’s not the same as VG II.It’s a colour, more nude, none yellow! Never done before.It looks great with any lipglass on top and lip pencil!

Melanie Avatar

Absolutely loving this lipstick and lipgloss. I’m an NC50 in MAC and these will be the perfect nudes for me. I’m definitely going to have to buy backups.

Kim-Mary Avatar

I’m not a big nude lipstick fan. I have the Faerie Glen from the Tartan Tale and though I love the name, the color looks blah on me. I may still pick this one up cause it looks so beautiful & it’s for a great cause. I do with if it were a true Gaga color it would have been more outrageous color like deep mauve or some sort of purpley color. Maybe even a nice smokey gray shade…yes I would buy one if it’s pigmented just right.

Rachael Avatar

OHHH-EMMMM-GEEEE!!! I am loving that nude color. I have been in search of the perfect nude for over a year and this might be it. I cant wait!!!

Greta Avatar

SO EXCITED. saw a photo of jeffree star wearing this and holding it up in a photo, i knew Lady Gaga was going to do another lipstick but i didnt know if it was fake or not :p SOO HAPPY! cant wait to buy this!

Adelita Avatar

All Viva Glam Gaga always looks pale on me and this looks super pale (even though I think I’ll love this lipglass more than the previous one). I wonder if there’s gonna be another VG Cyndi? Her color suits me better.

Sam Avatar

I can never pull off nudes, so I’m hoping this will work on me! Then again… I can never pull off baby pinks but the first Viva Gaga looks great on me so maybe this will too!

ak Avatar

If this is anything like Yash ,then I gotta buy at least two of these and possible of the lipglass too! It looks pretty and peachy and orange-y og Gaga in the pic, so that gets a big ‘Yay!’ from me as to how it may appear on me once I finally see it!

ChelsMarie Avatar

I can’t really tell but it looks kind of orange. I will def swatch it when it comes out. And is it just me or does Gaga look like Cher in this picture?

ak Avatar

Gaga does look great in that promo picture. Her eyes look really pretty also. I can’t wait to test the nude-ness of this lipstick on my skin to see if it passes my test! LOL

Hannah Avatar

I hate nude lipstick but I love Gaga. Oh the dilemma! I’ll probably give in and get it anyway. Celebrity endorsement defiantly works on me, lol. At least it’s for charity.

Christina Avatar

Ugh, NOT happy about this at all. My MAC gals told me they thought Gaga I would be permanent eventually since it is so popular (like all the other Viva Glams) and the Gaga I has been sold out (though I did hoard a few thankfully). But this color is too “ordinary” which isn’t a bad thing but not to replace my PRECIOUS pink!

Angelina Avatar

This color looks extremely similiar to “Shy Girl” in the photograph when Gaga is wearing it, but the lipgloss and lipstick don’t look like “Shy Girl”. Maybe it depends on the lipliner being used with it (possibly “Spice” lipliner).

Bboy Avatar

Actually I have seen this shade and it is NOTHING like any of the previous Viva Glams or anything in the existing lineup. This gloss looks hot over any lipstick or liner.

Melody Avatar

Hmmm…I think the lipstick would be too nude for me, but I’ll definitely check out the lipglass. I always at least check them out since Viva Glam is a charity. There could be good layering potential anyway!

Annick Chantal L. H. Avatar

I’m not a fan of lady gaga. Sorry but I prefer Metallica (I confess to be a death metal/power metal fan) LOL. And I was not a fan of the viva glam gaga last edition (unwearable for me)… BUTTT as you all girl say: OMG (or oh lala) I added these two lipstick+lipglass in my wish-list… I lUUUUUUUUVVVVVE nude lisptick…. I happy to have found your blog/web magazine Christine because thanks to you I can organize my wish-list one or two months before it’s internationally available……

Gabriella Avatar

Great color, as I have always been on the search for the perfect nude shade (right now, Myth is the best I have, but this looks nice). But I was pretty disappointed that they didn’t repromote Gaga’s pink lipstick/ glass! It was the best pink color I ever found, and let’s just say when I decided to buy backups they were all sold out 😉

Juana Avatar

Cant wait. I missed out on the release of Mickey Contractor and had to stalk the website for restocking, I have 4 Yash lipsticks now. LOL. I WANT THIS ONE!! Love nude colors, it has that sexy naked look to it…I plan to get 2 of each…Still loving Yash!!

pia Avatar

I sold my Gaga lipstick cos it didn’t work for me; but I might get this one. I’m a sucker for amplified finish, I would feel less guilty purchasing another nude color because I could write this off as charity 😀

Kenneth Alan Avatar

I just went on MAC’s website to stock up on the first Viva Glam Gaga lipstick and I find out it isn’t on there anymore! NOOOOO I NEED MORE! I was going to buy 5 more grrrr.

Do you think I’ll have any chance of getting more at a MAC store or one of the counters?

Lauren Avatar

I got my lipstick in the mail last night. In the promo picture, it looks a little peachier than it does in real life. It is definitely a flat flesh tone with no shimmer. I’m still not sure if I like it or not since it doesn’t look how I thought it would.

Sarah Avatar

I have a friend that works at a mac counter in dillards, and she gave me a little preview of both products today. and i have to say they are GORGEOUS! im buying two of each right off the bat. Sadly i was only able to get one of the first gaga lipsticks and no lipgloss 🙁 so i dont want that to happen again. SOO looking forward to getting my hands on these babies! They have a list at the counters that you can sign up for if you want to make sure you’re able to get some, and you can hold as many as you want. and theyre guaranteed yours!
