Nicki Minaj Viva Glam!

5 years ago

So today I received a small package from MAC containing the new Viva Glam lipstick! I`ve been looking forward to it ever since I heard Nicki Minaj was the new face of the the campaign for the MAC HIV/AIDS fund. I love Nicki`s style, I think she is wonderfully eccentric, bold and not afraid of being flamboyant so I knew before I saw the colour I would love it & I wasn`t wrong!

It is a gorgeous bright pink with yellow undertones and satin finish, I am a fan of satin`s as they are smooth and easy to apply and this is no different. It is incredibly pigmented as expected and it the kind of colour that I am usually drawn to,bold, vibrant pinks! I would say for most people this wouldn`t be an everyday colour but personally it is something I wouldn`t mind wearing on a daily basis as I usually go for a bold lip and understated eye for the day.

Above is a comparison of lipsticks that I thought might be closest to the colour and to give you a reference (L-R- MAC Pink Nouveau, MAC Chatterbox, MAC Viva Glam), on initial swipe it seemed really comparable to MAC`s Chatterbox but it`s not. Chatterbox is more of a `rosey` pink and seems to have red undertones whilst Pink Nouveau is more blue based, Viva Glam is seems seriously bright when swatched next to these two because the others are more muted pinks.

Overall this is a winner for me, it definitely has a special place within my pink lipstick collection and it completely different to the others I own. Also, the money paid for this lipstick is going to a good cause so even if I didn`t like it (which I totallllly dooo) I know the money has gone towards helping others in need and that`s why I love the concept of Viva Glam.

Thanks for reading!
