Viva Glam Nicki Lipstick Review

I have resisted buying this lipstick for so long as I know that I don’t really need another one judging by the small lipstick shop I could open in my bedroom but on a recent trip to House of Fraser with my friend to buy her birthday present, I spotted this lippy on the girl serving at the MAC counter and knew I had to have it….

Viva Glam Nicki by MAC

Viva Glam Nicki is a limited edition lipstick from MAC’s Viva Glam range where all proceeds, minus VAT, go to the MAC Aids Fund which helps men, women and children everywhere who are affected by HIV and aids.

Viva Glam Nicki is a gorgeous mid toned pink that is super bright.  It’s like Barry M’s Pink Flamingo nail paint but in lipstick form and I love it!  The pink shade has a yellow undertone, giving it more of a coral appearance than a cooler, blue toned pink which I think is a very welcome change as all of the pink lipsticks that I have tend to be these kind of true pinks.

The colour of the lipstick is very true to how it appears in the bullet- there is no fooling the shopper with this one as what you see is what you get.  Using a very light hand, you can swatch it on the lips quite lightly, otherwise, it comes out exactly like the colour in the bullet which I love.

Viva Glam Nicki is one of MAC’s satin finish lipsticks and it applies like a dream.  Very creamy and opaque with a hint of a sheen.  Absolutely perfect for the summer and I can’t wait to wear it with a tan on holiday- bring it on girls!

Viva Glam Nicki retails for £14 and is available here as well as at MAC counters up and down the country.
