MAC Viva Glam Nicki Minaj Review

 This isn't really true to colour... brb while I learn how to photograph products better! haha

MAC Viva Glam Nicki Minaj
Messy hair
(why do I still have baby hairs around my hairline?! I hate them!)
Clothing will be shown in tomorrow's blog post!

I'm a sucker for all MAC lipsticks, after purchasing my second one way back in December, which you can see in this blog post. My first one was a cream sheen... Speed Dial to be exact! I still like it for every-day wear, but I really fell in love with MAC lipsticks when I purchased Russian Red. So now, every time I walk by the MAC counter, I always buy a lipstick. I'm up to 10 or so now, and I keep wanting to purchase more!

The Nicki Minaj is described as a yellow pink, and it is pretty light and bubble-gummy on my lips... I've seen it look hot pink on other lips and with other skin tones! While I absolutely adore the colour, I find it a little bit drying compared to the other Satin finishes I have tried. I really have to make sure to exfoliate and moisturize my lips prior to applying it. It's really really pigmented, which I LOVE. It's bold, it's bright, and it is oh-so beautiful!

I used to not wear a lot of lipstick, and I used to be too nervous to wear it for daytime... but now I am at the point where my face doesn't feel "ready" until I have applied lipstick. Addicted, for sure. 

Have you tried the Nicki? What did you think?

I love that colour! It's like a warmer baby pink!

i own nicki too, but it doesn't seem to work too well for my skin tone... maybe i'm just not used to lighter colours on me since i prefer darker pinks and mauves... but it looks great on you so i will try to work with it once again :)
