Lately, for about a year now, I've gotten more and more into lipsticks. All from MAC. I bought Shy Girl and Hue which are really pretty similar shades if I'm honest. Shy Girl is a bit darker than Hue. It's a creamsheen. Hue is a glaze finish. I prefer Hue. It's a pale nude pink, less pink more nude really. It feels good on and i like wearing it for every day wear. I shy away from bright colours... or so i thought, until recently.
This week i bought the MAC Viva Glam Nicki. This is the collaboration with Nicki Minaj. I don't care for her much but since i bought the bought the OPI Pink Friday Nicki collaboration i decided I'd get this one. It's all part of my 'step outside my comfort zone' from my 35 things in my 35th year list. Also, 100% of the cost goes towards the MAC Aids foundation. Helping a good cause as well as getting nice pink lips. 20 bonus points.
It's a bright yellow pink. I don't see the yellow myself (I never really understand those brand descriptions). On me it's a pink edging towards fuchsia with still a little warmth in it. It's a satin finish which feels nice on me. I wore it on the weekend and like to wear a thin layer then blotted out with my finger. Just enough bright pink for me.
I tried to swatch it (below) but you can never really get a true representation of the actual colour, can you.
|it looks a bit coral here. perhaps that's the yellow in their description|
|love the red accent on the packaging (for the MAC aids foundation)|
|this is with a flash and is a bit out of focus. Much more pale pinker here than real life|
