MAC Viva Glam Nicki Minaj 2013 - Page 10

post #271 of 689

Just read that Bloomingdales in S. FL has this out for sale already O.O

post #272 of 689

I was kinda hoping this would be out with the Archie Girl's collection so I can do one big order instead of one here and then the rest. I like the lippie, but am still going to complain that I wish it had a tad more blue in it instead of pink. Oh well. One of these days us blue violet loving lipstick wearing ladies/guys will get out wish.angelic.gif

I watched Nicki Minaj's "Va Va Voom" music video the other day and it looked like in some of the parts of the video that she was wearing this lipstick! It doesn't look too bad on darker skintones.. I mean, she can pull it off because she's very bright with her style & makeup but for someone who's fair/olive skin toned (like me) I don't think I can. Lol.

You won't know untill you try.  I have yellow undertones and I like St. Germain and Quite Cute, but I think the key is to pair them with the right blush and eye make up.  Where it sort of goes bad is when the lippy has too much white pigment in it and gives the appearance that  you put concealer on your lips. (or in the words of a funny lady here, like you smoked crack then ate a package of powdered donuts)  I think fairer ladies have less of a problem with this, unless their lips are really pigmented.  If it didn't look like "concealer lips" on Nicki, it probably won't be too bad on you.  (Fleshpot looks like this on me, unflattering to say the least) 

 

I am not a fan of having to use a lipgloss to make a lipstick work, but if you really want the product (its for a for a good cause), sometimes you can layer gloss on top and cancel out an unflattering tone--e.g. I like to layer a pink gloss over some of my nude lippies if they pull to orange on me but sometimes that is more work than I want to do (or if jacks up the finish) so I just wait for a color I do like that I don't have to mess with.  I think we just have to wait for the bloggers to do some swatches on the lips to know before we try it.  I am not sure layering any gloss over a lippy that has too much white pigmentation will fix it, so if I see lip swatches that look like concealer lips, I will know to skip this one, but I am trying to keep an open mind until I see those swatches.

post #283 of 689

Thank you for posting bluedreamqueen. I love the look of this lavender lippie. Hoping it's a tad darker, bluer than Quite Cute which has  more white in it on me.

Yup, it's amplified

post #287 of 689

You're right drammy. When I saw the picture from my iphone it looked very much like QC...maybe a tad darker, but on my mom's computer it does look like a nice mid-toned lavender and that is what I have been praying for. I was planning on getting two, but now that Lavender Whip and Heroine are coming back, maybe one now and one in a few months. Viva Glam lippies are around for a year or so, right? Anyone?

Yes, they're normally available for a whole year. Which is why I probably won't even pick it up as soon as it's released. There'll be lots of other purples to keep me busy!

Whoa! Wonderful! Mid-toned lavender! Amplified finish! Around for about a year!

 

I almost never get backups, but a lipstick in this color and finish is calling for them!

Not sure. According to Mac-Guy on the Fashion Sets collection site (I think) it will be re-promoted sometime this year. Not sure with what collection and if it will be for Spring, Summer or Fall.

I love love love the gloss on her. I know I'll end up getting both as soon as they're released regardless, but I'm trying to imagine how they'll look on my NC40 skin. If anything, the VGN2 lipstick + VGN1 lipgloss combo is gorgeous and I need to recreate it asap.

post #299 of 689

Is it just me noticing that in some pics the lippie looks more pink and in others more lavender?shrugs.gif I want lavender. I don't know if it's the lighting or not, but I am hoping to have an actual lavender(ish) lipstick otherwise I can skip it. Tx for the link RaymondKurzweil.
