MAC have teamed up with Nicki Minaj again to give birth to the MAC Viva Glam Nicki lipstick. When I first heard about this lipstick I was super excited, I just couldn't wait for it to be released for sale, so I ended up pre-ordering this lipstick, just in case it would sell out as quickly as the Pink Friday lipstick did. The thing that I love the most about this lipstick is that all the money made from this lipstick goes to charity, not 10% not 50% but 100%, so not only are you getting a gorgeous lipstick but you're also donating to charity at the same time.
Mac Viva Glam Nicki lipstick is a bright pink lipstick with yellow undertones, so if you dislike blue-toned pink lipsticks like me, you might want to give this lipstick a try. MAC Viva Glam Nicki has a satin finish which means it is semi matte, because of this it can feel a bit drying on the lips but if you wear a lip balm underneath you should be absolutely fine. This lipstick has a good amount shine to it, as you can see in the picture above, so I don't even need to wear lip-gloss over it. I usually wear lip-liner with this lipstick as it is a really bright neon pink but depending on how brave you are and/or what undertones you have, you could definitely pull this lipstick of by itself.
MAC Viva Glam Nicki vs MAC Pink Nouveau
The MAC Viva Glam Nicki is a yellow based pink lipstick whereas MAC Pink Nouveau is a blue based lipstick, both lipstick have a satin finish which means they are semi-mate lipsticks. I personally feel that non-blue based lipsticks suit my warm undertones better, that's why I do prefer the Viva Glam Nicki over the the Pink Nouveau, however Viva Glam Nicki is a super bright neon pink so I do tend to wear this with a lip-liner that will tone it down.
The Viva Glam Nicki Lipstick goes well with Nicki Minaj's nail polish line with OPI, click here to check out my review of the gorgeous nail polishes.
