In this post, I mentioned that I owned a Mac Viva Glam Nicki Minaj, but it wasn’t included on my top picks for lipsticks.
It was once a very popular lipstick ---that’s why I bought one for myself (through my sis’ bf in the U.S) and another for my giveaway few months ago (through fabshopaholic). However, it wasn’t a flexible shade.
Mac Viva Glam Nicki Minaj is a limited edition – no wonder, the packaging is different from the typical Mac lipsticks.
It has the same vanilla scent, though.
Mac Viva Glam Nicki Minaj is a very bright carnation pink –definitely, a scene-stealer!
It has a satin finish just like Mac Pink Nouveau (my fave pink of all time!).
Staying Power is good; it stays on like more than 4 hours on me. For bright lipsticks (any kind), I recommend you to always bring the lipstick with you for touch ups—you don’t want to go home with uneven lips right?
Just like what I’ve said, it wasn’t my favorite lipstick simply because the color is so not me. It’s very bright that I couldn't wear it for everyday. But it doesn’t hurt to have one especially if you like an IN-YOUR-FACE Pink lipstick.
- -Great color payoff and staying power
- -Every cent from the sale goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV and AIDS. (amazing!)
- -Glides smoothly like butter
- -Limited Edition
- -Pricey (it's for a good cause, anyway)
- -does not work well on all skin tone
