Viva Glam Nicki

After losing my virginity to MAC just a matter of weeks ago I've been looking for my next fix for a little while. So when MAC sent me a code to get Viva Glam Nicki a few days before its release I just couldn't resist. I thought what better a lipstick to team my OPI Nicki Minaj nail varnish with than the lady herselfs lipstick. So as a bit of newbie to MAC I was very excited to find out that every single penny of this lipstick sale goes to the MAC aids foundation. The MAC website says this: 

Put the Super in your Bass and the GLAM on your Face with 2012 VIVA GLAM stars Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin! Her scene-stealing Lipstick and his hydrating Lip Conditioner dare you to Be Bold. Be Beautiful. Be Safe. The full RRP (less VAT) from the sale of these products goes toward helping women, men and kids everywhere affected by HIV and Aids.

Ricky Martin is also fronting the campaign with Miss Nicki Minaj and he has done a Viva Glam Lip Conditioner. Available on the MAC Website here. 

Viva Glam Nicki  - £13.50
Viva Glam Ricky - £11.50 

So onto the product - it is a gorgeous popping bright pink. I thought it might be a little too pink on me from looking at other reviews. But I've actually noticed this lipstick looks really different on everyone who wears it. It holds all of the usual gorgeous creaminess and long lasting colour you'd expect from a MAC lippie. As well as the usual delicious packaging you'd expect too. 

I actually love the colour I don't think its too bright but then again its not that kind of subtle lipstick you'd wear all the time either. I don't own any shades like it and I'm very excited to introduce it to my collection. I think with a black dress and a bright pink clutch this will look amazing! Such a hot summery shade - I feel like I need to book a holiday wearing it!

I also think this again is a spot on collaboration as this bright pink is something often seen on Nicki herself! I look forward to my next girls night out wearing this shade sipping a cocktail! 

Has anyone else tried Viva Glam Nicki?
