Mac Viva Glam Nicki

When I first saw the Viva Glam Nicki lipstick on MAC's website, I wasn't too sure about it. I'm not one for bright and bold shades so I couldn't see this one suiting me at all.  I was even more surprised when at my local MAC counter I ended up leaving with Viva Glam Nicki, which in my opinion was very brave of me. The makeup artist applied it on my lips instore, using Ricky's Lip Conditioner over the lipstick and a pro longwear lip liner (In Anticipation). I ended up buying these products too. All the money from the sales of Viva Glam Nicki & Ricky's Lip Conditioner go to the MAC Aids Fund, it feels good to be giving to charity at the same time.

After spending nearly €50 on these three products, it pains me to say I won't be wearing them that much. At the counter, I thought this was the best lipstick ever and I had to have it, but now I have my doubts. I'm getting use to the bright shade but it's just not a lipstick I can see myself rocking on a daily basis. It's just way too 'out there' for me, maybe I'll change my mind in a while, who knows! On the other hand, I can see myself use Ricky's Lip Conditioner alot. I own their tinted lip conditioner Petting Pink and it's so moisturising. It has a permanent place in my makeup bag. I know some people don't like lip products in pots (I'm not one of them), so I think most people will be happy that this is in a tube.

Here is the lipstick in action...
I don't think my camera really captures how vibrant this lipstick really is.

Have you tried Viva Glam Nicki??

  5. The photos don't really do it justice just how bright it is do they! When I put mine on I was like woaaah. My lips also mute the peachy tones, so it looks pretty highlighter pink on me, definitely one for nights out! It does look lovely on you. xx

    1. Thanks Nic. No the camera doesn't capture it well at all!!! When the girl applied it at the MAC counter, I liked it alot. At home, well it was a totally different story altogether just very unsure about it now. I think it will be one kept for nights out for sure:):) xxx

  10. Love the colour of this on you, perhaps you could try it blotted down a little to mute it if you don't feel you would wear it often as it is?
