M.A.C Viva Glam Nicki & Nicki 2 Review & Swatches!

Hi My Loves!!!

I picked up the Viva Glam Nicki and Viva Glam Nicki 2 Lip gloss and Lipstick in my last MAC Haul and wanted to share my thoughts with you guys. 

These are available at your local MAC counter or online Link! 

They all retail for $15

First is the Viva Glam 2 Lipglass.

This is a soft lavender pink. It's a super beautiful color and it's perfect for spring. I feel like the lipglass is much easier to wear than the lipstick and would be beautiful alone or over another shade of lipstick. If you are wanting to try out a purple lip color, this would be the safest way to start :) I would repurchase this.


Here it is on my lips with nothing underneath.

Next is the Viva Glam Nicki 2 Lipstick. This I found much harder to pull off. This color definitely makes my teeth look more on the yellow side. It actually gave me a complex about them that day haha!! All day all I could think about was whitening my teeth!!! It's very opaque and stands out like crazy, so this isn't for the subtle makeup wearer.... I feel like if I had perfectly white, straight teeth and a tan, I could pull this off but I felt like it just didn't look right on me.

Here it is with nothing underneath.

Here is the lipstick and lipglass together.

MAC Viva Glam Nicki Lipglass. This color is so bright and fun for the Spring/Summer! It's a bright pink with a tad of coral in it. Again I feel like the lipglass would be much easier for most people to pull off as it's not as wild as the lipstick. I am definitely excited to wear this color more for the Spring season. I would repurchase this gloss.

Here is the lipglass with nothing on underneath.

MAC Viva Glam Nicki Lipstick. This is very pigmented and opaque as well. Super bright pink with a tad of coral in it. Great for those who like a statement lip. Super creamy and goes on very easily. It truly is a beautiful color. A little brighter pink than I would normally go for but very nice :) I probably wouldn't repurchase this again, just because it is so bright but it's nice to have for the odd occasion that I do what a bright pink lip :)

Lipstick with nothing else over or underneath.

Hope that helps you make your decision on which goodies to pick up!! 

I must say I do love Nicki Minaj's makeup. She consistently looks flawless and I think if I would have to pick 2 celebs that I look to for makeup inspiration, Nicki and Kim Kardashian would be the winners! Now if Kim would just do a nude lipgloss/lipstick with MAC... that would be fab!!!

Thanks for reading :)
