MAC Viva Glam Nicki review and swatches

I've owned my MAC Viva Glam Nicki for a couple of weeks now, so I thought I'd show you some swatches.  For those that don't know, Viva Glam lipsticks are limited edition, but they're available for a whole year, so you should easily be able to get your hands on this if you want it.  

 




Lots of people have been saying that this lipstick looks different on everyone, and it's true, I've seen some swatches on people where it looks much darker on them than on me, and also others where it's verging on a bright baby pink.  On me it's a rich milky coral with a slight neon edge in bright daylight, and I just can't get enough of it right now. It's also my first Satin finish in a MAC lipstick - I've found it takes more careful application and my lips need to be primed well, but as long as you're prepared for that, it's fab.  I'll be doing a post in the next few days on what exactly it is I've been using to prime my lips lately - it's amazing stuff! 

Viva Glam Nicki is available from MAC and Selfridges for £13.50 and all the money other than the VAT goes to the MAC AIDS fund - who knew shopping could be so virtuous?

  6. This colour is insane. Like you I've seen so many swatches of it and none of them match! It really does look different on everyone. So much so that I, who can never pull off pink, am considering getting it :o
