I’m all for a good cause and a good lipstick shade, so I was thrilled when MAC emailed me a personalized code to get early access to purchase Viva Glam Nicki Lipstick.
Nicki is a bright medium pink with a hint of coral. (The coral tone is more noticeable in person.)
As you can see, it has an opaque color coverage and a satin finish.
Viva Glam Nicki will launch on February 15th, 2012 (North America) and March 2012 (International). It will be available through February 2013. Every cent of the selling price ($14.50) of each lipstick will go directly to the MAC AIDS Fund, which is dedicated to promote awareness of HIV/AIDS around the globe. Isn’t that awesome?
Overall, I LOVE Viva Glam Nicki! I think this color would look very flattering on many skin tones. It’s not too cool or too warm. Just perfect. It’s bright, but it’s totally wearable. It’s very pigmented, applies evenly, and fades evenly. It wears about 5-6 hours on me and stain the lips a little. It has MAC’s signature vanilla scent which I really like. I only wish they’d release a Viva Glam Nicki lipglass too (like Viva Glam Cyndi, Gaga 1, and Gaga 2).
What do you think about Viva Glam Nicki? Will you be getting this color? Do you own any Viva Glam lip products?
