At the weekend I was lucky enough to be able to FINALLY buy the MAC Viva Glam Lady Gaga Lipstick! Since it was launched in the UK its been sold out everywhere and I wanted to have the chance of swatching it first before buying as I hate buying makeup online!
The Lady Gaga Viva Glam is such a wearable pink - highly pigmented, bold but not too in-your-face lipstick, super easy to apply and a nice creamy formulation. Although i'm disapointed that its limited edition its good to know im helping a good cause as 100% of the sales of Viva Glam lipsticks goes to support people living with HIV/Aids. I was quite taken with the Cyndy Lauper shade too so might go back for that as well as another couple of Lady Gagas!
I also swatched 'Lazy Days' from the new MAC To The Beach Collection which looked very promising on the stand, but on the lips looked dreadful....disapointing. You can just about make it out on the swatches below (looks more of a sheer gloss than a lipstick).
From Left to Right: Viva Glam Lady Gaga, Lazy Days, Viva Glam Cyndy.
I also tried 'Please Me' Lipstick by MAC - I adore it, very similar to Lady Gaga will be returning to pick this one up too!
