I honestly wasn’t expecting much of a response to my swatches series idea and planned to post it regardless. It’s so nice to know that people read, and look forward to my blog posts So onto my first Swatch Series post!
I bought MAC’s Viva Glam Nicki when it first came out. How can you say no to a good cause, and a good pink lipstick. I surely can’t to either!
I was so excited when I finally received this. Like most creme lipsticks from MAC it applied like a dream. Longevity was pretty good. 5 hours light snacking. Lasts sorta through a meal. It does stain the lips. I don’t mind so much.
My one and only problem with this honestly is that is just don’t work with me. I find this lipstick just not the right color for me. It’s much too bright of a easter egg pink for me. The cool colors work better for me. I think this would look and does look much better on those with a darker skin tone than me.

Please excuse the wet hair, and I forgot to put on mascara for this photo.
VERDICT: Would I buy this again? No. The color is just not right for me. It’s such a shame since the quality of this lipstick is so nice. Sells online and at MAC stores for $15.
