MAC Viva Glam Nicki Lipstick
There are very rare chances when you kill two birds with one stone, and when I got the chance I was more than pleased to take it. I am talking about MAC Nicki Minaj and Ricki Matrin collection, like all Viva Glam products, 100% of the proceeds of Viva Glam Nicki and Lip Conditioner sales go to the MAC AIDS fund, which helps women, children and men living with HIV/AIDS.
I didn’t get my hand on this as it was launched when I was on vacation to India, but my dear friend Dipti picked one of them. It’s a beautiful yellow base pink and has satin finish and with having high pigment to give you opaque coverage in one swipe only. Due to yellow undertone it is suitable for warm skin tone.
The pink shade is very vibrant and is not being an every once choice, but if you like to wear bold and different shades do try this out. If you are looking for true pink shade to try go for this. Dior elegant pink (Review here) comes in the same pink category but that shade has less yellow undertone and less vibrant than Nicki Minaj.
Here how this looks on me-
Satin finish – which gives beautiful sheen.
Beautiful Vibrant pink shade
May washed out on some skin tone
For you if- You are looking vibrant pink lip color
Skip it if – You are looking for every day pink shade
Would I buy it again? - It’s a limited edition shade, so no, not possible.
