I received a code for early purchase of the new MAC Viva Glam Nicki lipstick.

This lipstick is a bright coral-y pink. It's almost neon. It's a satin finish, which is 'almost' matte. It will exaggerate any dry/chapped places on your lips, so make sure you exfoliate before you apply this!

Before I show you the pictures, or go on with the review, in case you are aware, this lipstick is part of a campaign to promote AIDS awareness, and raise money for AIDS research. 100% of the proceeds from this collection goes straight to the MAC AIDS fund. This is not the only lipstick in the collection! There are a few others, and you should definitely check them all out next time you want to purchase a lipstick. 

I am not personally a fan of Nicki Minaj, but the color is so pretty and the money goes for a great cause!

This lipstick is very heavily pigmented. One coat will cover completely, two makes it a bit more vibrant. When I say it's kind of neon, believe me, that is not an understatement. It's a beautiful, unique color.

This lipstick lasted on me for about 3 hours with minimal fading. It's very smooth and creamy, it doesn't dry out my lips, and I love that it is just so bright!

On to the pictures..

The packaging is wonderful. Beautiful black and red tube, with Nicki's autograph on the inside, and well as on the box it comes in. It does show fingerprints! Also, the tube closes really well, so no worries over carrying it in your purse!

The flash on my camera took out some of the brightness, it's really more pink-y and coral-y than it looks. 


This swatch is definitely showing a lot darker than it really is. I really struggled to get one that was accurate.

This is definitely the most accurate picture. In real life, it's honestly a bit more neon, but this is as close as I could get. My camera would just not pick up the brightness. I really need a new camera.


So, overall, I think you should pick up this lipstick! It's beautiful, unique, bright, pretty long lasting, smooth and just wonderful.
This will be a great spring/summer color!

This releases at MAC on February 15, 2012. 
It retails for $14.50.

So, definitely check it out!
At the very least, go look at it in person when it comes out, it truly is beautiful.
