Review: MAC Viva Glam Cyndi & Gaga

Once again, a late review, but as my favorite saying goes, better late than never, right? :)

I snagged these lipsticks last week, and they are really fun! I'm not surprised that they're already selling out.

Viva Glam Gaga

VG Gaga was the color that first drew my attention. I'm a big Gaga fan; I love her crazy outfits, her fresh and fun music, and all her wacky accessories (hello hair bow!). So it was only natural that I'd be drawn to this lipstick (good job, MAC marketing dept!). 

I am always looking for the perfect light pink lipstick. Well, this isn't it exactly; my dream pink would be like Underage l/g, but in a lipstick form. But, it's still a pretty awesome color! Viva Glam Gaga is a playful pink that can be applied heavily for great color payoff, or easily sheered out for a soft touch of pink. I have been dabbing Fleshpot l/s on my lips and then VG Gaga on top to bring out the true color of this lipstick. I definitely prefer this pink over Snob l/s.

Viva Glam Cyndi


At first glance, this color appears to be a burnt dark red. However, when you actually apply it, it is a beautiful watermelon red. It is a lustre, so it's by no means an intense color, and it's much more forgiving when applying. I think it will also look on all skintones.

So, what do you think about the new Viva Glam lippies?
