MAC Viva Glam Nicki lipstick




This picture does NOT represent the colour at all, I have only included this to show the texture, finish etc.

Hi everyone! 

I've actually had this lipstick a while now, however I've put off reviewing it because I can never capture the colour on camera. So please, please bear in mind that the photo above does not show the colour. I've included it in the post as I thought it would be helpful to see the the other qualities of the lipstick. It's much more similar to the other photos of the actual lipstick and of the swatch on my arm, however I would say it is brighter and slightly fleuroscent. It is a very 'Barbie' pink.

I'd say this isn't the easiest lipstick to wear thanks to the colour, but for a night out paired with the right outfit and make up I love it! I personally think it's a lipstick that makes your teeth look less white than they are but when I wore this on a night out, apparently my teeth were glowing haha! But you definitely need fairly white teeth to wear this. On the outfit front, I'd say you need to be careful with what you wear this with to avoid looking trashy and I'd also be careful with the make up, no other bright colours! I put this on for 'Glam rock' fancy dress paired with blue eyeshadow and it made me look quite like a porn star.. Not the look I was going for, hence changing it to 'Impassioned'.

Glam Rock fancy dress - this shows the colour perfectly!

Moving on to formula, it's amazingly pigmented, super creamy and has great staying power. It glides on to the lips with ease and there's no need to build up the colour, a quick swipe and you're good to go. I don't find it drying at all, it's super moisturising considering how well it stays put. It's a satin formula so I don't find it as pigmented or long lasting as a matte or amplified lipstick, but it is still pretty damn good.

If you're not afraid of the colour and you love a bold lip, this is great! It is one of my less worn lipsticks for that reason, however I love wearing it and feel great when I do. Yet again, another amazing lipstick from MAC! They never let me down and if you haven't tried a MAC lipstick please give one a go! My other favourite shades are Russian Red, Impassioned and Please me.

What's your favourite MAC lipstick? Always room for one more ;)
