I know the 'Viva Glam Nicki' post has been a little overdone, but I was so excited when it dropped through my door a couple of days ago that I thought I'd give my two cents on it. I saw it online the day it was released and ordered it straight away! I've been looking for a bright pink lipstick to wear in summer but up until now, couldn't find the perfect shade.
What I love about the colour of this lipstick is that it's warm and not at all blue toned like other pinks I own. I don't find blue tones particularly flattering on my skin tone and I'm not sure that many people do, whereas this colour is universally flattering and very pretty. The swatch I have shown, is probably the most true to the actual colour of the lipstick from all my photos. I think a flash makes it look slightly lighter but, flash or no flash this colour is stunning. It has an almost coral tone to the pink, so if you like that look, you will like this.
The formula is a Satin which some people find drying but I don't mind it. If you wear it on moisturised lips then this isn't a problem and I don't find it to show up cracks on the lips any more than other lipsticks I own. You can also add a gloss on top as well which would change the appearance of the finish so I don't find the formula a disadvantage. Plus, it lasts better on my lips and is more pigmented than Glazes or Cremesheens so in that way it is bonus. The smell is also lovely. As I've mentioned so many times, MAC lipsticks smell the best out of any lipsticks I've owned.
This is a gorgeous product and I think it would suit a lot of different skin tones. It's also worthwhile because the full RRP (minus VAT) goes to the MAC Aids fund to help improve lives globally.
