~ Viva Glam Nicki Minaj ❤ ~

Yepp~ It's the New viva glam lipstick brought to us by M.A.C and this time instead of Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper, it's Ricky and Nicki. I skipped out on Ricky's lip conditioner as i didn't really feel like it was an essential for me. But i purchased this Nicki Minaj lipstick which is a fun hot colour and very "scene stealing"! This lipstick is a satin lipstick described as a "Bright Yellow pink" colour. It retails at £13.50 but the money goes towards "helping women, men and kids everywhere infected by HIV and AIDS" so i guess that you don't feel as guilty since the money is going towards a good cause! When i first opened the lipstick to see the colour, i was like 'omg this is so bright i can never wear it' It's definitely scene stealing, MAC was right, it is a deep hot pink colour almost raspberry- like. However knowing that it's a satin finish (more opaque than lustres) i applied lightly and the colour it gave was really nice and suttle. I am not a person who likes bold colours so just a few light dabs of this lipstick on my lips worked nicely to give me the pretty berry stained colour. (see swatched below) The formula wasn't too drying aswell and i noticed throughout the day that it stained my lips aswell. Great lipstick even if you are not into bright lip colours, but the colour is buildable so if your feeling a bit daring one day you can have that bold lip colour; but if not you can always pair it up with a nude lipgloss to tone it down a notch. I am glad i bought this lipstick and it is great to add to my collection because i will soon be wearing more of it when it's warmer and it would look great in the summer! <3

Thank you for reading and i hope you have a great day! <3
