This Mac Viva Glam lipstick colour inspired by the one and only Lady Gaga has been around a while now, but I still see people hunting for it on Ebay. I bought this a while back now from Mac and loved using it, so now I have my own blog I wanted to share this beauty with you. This lipstick has the usual Viva Glam packaging - Gorgeous smooth black shimmery bullet-like case with MAC written in red on the lid and with Lady Gaga's signature on the neck of the lipstick.
The lipstick's finish is lustre. The lipstick doesn't have a sheer coverage, but more of a soft creamy look with a sheen that is still buildable to create the subtle or block colour that you want. This colour has the perfect amount of shine that is not too glossy. I love this colour. The powdery pink looks lovely on my pale complexion but still not too pale to drown me out. This is a classic baby pink with a kick. The only thing I had trouble with was my dry lips. I usually like lustre finishes for Mac lipstick as I find that they don't cling to the dry parts of the lips, but I felt that this shade did that slightly, especially with more layers of the lipstick. Another point is that I felt that this was slightly drying on my lips like I find the occasional Mac lipstick to do so and stayed away from wearing this in the cold winter. Now that spring is here however, I think that this will be used a lot! I love wearing pastles in the spring, and this will give the usual pastel pink a twist.
What do you think of this lipstick?
