Mac Viva Glam Nicki 1 Lipstick

6:12 PM

Hands down, Viva Glam Nicki 1 lipstick is definitely the brightest shade from Mac Viva Glam line. It's a color that would attract attention (in a good way if applied right) and would get a ton of questions too (no kidding!). Every ounce of this lipstick definitely embodies Nicki Minaj's personality if you'd ask me; - bright, bold and fun! 



Mac Viva Glam Nicki 1 lipstick (retails for Php1,000) is a rich, vivid warm pink with a hint of coral undertones. It's a satin which is a good and a bad thing at the same time. Good because its finish enables it to deliver full opacity on the lips in a swipe. It glides smoothly onto the lips and its staying power is remarkably good as well.



Now the bad part(s). I find this extremely drying on the lips, so make sure to prep your puckers with a hydrating lip balm beforehand. This is important because if you miss this part, this lipstick could and would be a torture to wear. Also, if you plan to wear this all day on its own, make sure to keep that lip balm on hand, because by mid-day you'd probably need another coat to resurrect your lips. Oh, and buff those flaky dead skins away because this lipstick would emphasize them big time. Don't tell me you weren't warned.



Also, this is a loud color and it can look a bit tacky and cartoon-ish when applied excessively, so just be careful about that. What I do is I gently dab this on my lips, blend a bit using my ring finger, and top it with a gloss. 


Here's a swatch!


And in action!


Over all, if you love bright lips and feel you can get away with it being drying to the lips, go ahead and try it. It's limited edition, so act fast if you really want it. Remember, every cent you spent in purchasing this lipstick would go to Mac AIDS Fund to support men, women and children infected with HIV and AIDS.
