MAC Viva Glam Nicki 2 Lipglass ($15.00 for 0.17 fl. oz.) is described as a “pastel lavender pink.” It’s a milky, pale lavender-pink with subtle shimmer. MAC Viva Glam Gaga is pinker, more opaque. MAC Pink Fade is a touch lighter. MAC The Wee Coquette is lighter. MAC Stay Sweet is warmer, pinker. MAC Good Times is less cool-toned. MAC Pink Fade is cooler-toned.

It’s semi-sheer and allows a lot of the natural lip color to come through, which can warm/cool the color as well as make it appear pinker/redder. Because of its lightness, it does settle into lip lines and can cause lines of demarcation if you press your lips together. On my lips, it definitely appeared less purple applied than it does swatched or in the tube. When I applied it over Viva Glam Nicki 2 lipstick, it gave it a glossier look (of course!) and added a smidgen of pink–gave it less of a cool-toned vibe.  It wore three hours on my lips, and the texture and consistency is true-to-formula–thicker and tackier than your average gloss.

WHAT MAKEUP ARE YOU WEARING?
On eyes: Tarina Tarantino Sparkling Ammunition Eyeliner, MAC Opulash Mascara. On lips: MAC Viva Glam Nicki 2 Lipglass.

Christine, might be just me but the final three pictures don’t load (MAC Viva Glam Nicki 2 Lipglass over Viva Glam Nicki 2 Lipstick)! I tried two different browsers…might want to check it out.

Such an unflattering color. I don’t understand why MAC has chosen to make these recent Viva Glam colors so “out there”. Wouldn’t they want to choose colors, which flatter most everyone. They could make so much more money for charity!

Those bold lipsticks seem to fly off the shelves in most MAC stores I’ve been to, so I’m sure the charity aspect has been taken care of.

And besides, there are already quite a few classic/neutral colors in the Viva Glam permanent range, so why not add some bold shades?

Not my cup of tea, but I’ve seen girls who can pull it off rather nicely.

It looks so similar to the lipgloss Lady Gaga did, Born This Way, with NARS. Not so surprising though, coming from Nicki Minaj. But the proceeds goes to charity, and it’s cheaper, so I guess Viva Glam Nicki 2 it is.

Mostly everything looks good on you but this shade is so not cute on you. I don’t think this is a shade that would be flattering on no one.

I honestly think this looks cool on you! With a dramatic white-eyeliner type look, I think you would rock this for sure. Then again, I find Nicki 1 to be super wearable (on me – NC15/brunette and my good friend, NW25/blonde), so maybe my opinion is just out there…

The gloss is okay, but the lipstick is going to look good either on a very fair, very cool skintone, or caramel skin like Nicki’s, blended into a darker lipliner. For us medium-toned girls, not so much. When you look at Christine in this you can’t distinguish her lips from her face, and her teeth look yellowed. It will be interesting to see how this sells.

I know shades like this can be challenging. I assume most of us here own our fair share of lip liners. Try this and/or the lipstick with a red, or a bright pink, or even a deep berry shade. It’s a great shade to achieve an ombré lip. The color is rumored to be a shade Nicki and her MUA created using MAC Lip Mix.

Im gonna try this gloss in store… I think it would be great to mix with a bright or warmer lip pencil….def worth at least a try for charity 🙂

I don’t understand why MAC/Nicki would put out such an unflattering colour, sure it’ll look good on some but since this is a charity item they should make it a more apealing shade to the general public. Viva Glam Nicki 1 looks terrible on me (fair-beigey skin, yellow undertones, dark brown hair, blue green eyes) so I didn’t have high hopes for this either.
