New MAC Lipstick - Viva Glam Nicki

Today I got a little suprise... having waited in at home expecting a part to be delivered for our washing machine, a van finally pulled up and a man got out to ring our doorbell.  The parcel was in my husbands name and was fairly flat but I signed for it and closed the door.  When I sat down to open it I realised that the returns address said 'MAC' and call me stupid but I just figured that this stood for something from whereever hubby ordered the part from.  I opened the packet and thats when the penny dropped, he'd ordered me the Viva Glam Nicki lipstick which is Nicki's Minaj's 'Scene-stealing pink lipstick' as a surprise ** major brownie points for hubby **  

I know there has been alot of talk about this lipstick since it was released a few weeks back but I had mentioned that I would have liked it.  I have Viva Glam Gaga (the first one thats pink) and Viva Glam Cyndi and I love the cause behind it (The full RRP - less VAT - from the sale of these lipsticks goes toward helping women, men and kids everywhere affected by HIV and Aids)

So onto the colour...   the top photo really is true to colour - this lipstick is a bright neon pink with hints of orange tones.  For some people this might seem unwearable - to me its how you wear it (how many times you swipe it across your lips & the makeup you choose to wear with it) that will make it wearable or not.  I have a feeling this is not a colour that will be loved by all as it is so bright but I love it !! I loved Viva Glam Gaga so this is right up my street !! I have long dark brown hair with a chunk of blonde hair underneath but mainly dark so I think this really brights up my complection and would look great with a tan!!  It's a satin finish were as Viva Glam Cyndi & Gaga were both lustre.  This is possibly my first satin MAC lipstick and its really soft and smooth on my lips - no feeling of drying.  It has that classic MAC scent to it (just incase you're wondering!) 

Overall - I love it!! Its such a fun summer colour !!  I am a very lucky wife !!
