I bought VG Nicki 2 today.  So far, on me, it looks nice with Soar or Plum lip pencil.  With those pencils, it keeps the balance between pink and lavender.

 

With MAC Bordereauxline eye pencil, it looks pure lavender.

Here I am wearing the lipstick and the lipglass. For reference I am NC50/NW43. I didn't do much manipulating to get this to work. I used a lip liner for one look and just another lipstick instead of a lip liner for the other.

Yeah, I'm definitely not getting the lipstick now lol.

 

The jury is still out on the gloss, however.

I wore this lipstick with NYX Purple liner. I love it!
post #459 of 689
I really like that on you. I can't wait to pick it up.

I am so skipping this. Hopefully the gloss is more to my liking.

WTH happened to the lavender lippie?angry.gif This looks way too milky pink in my opinion. I am not a happy camper right now. I am hopefully receiving my black box today or tomorrow, so I will let you guys know if my lippie is more purple.

post #462 of 689

I just got my Nicki2 from the post office and I can't wait to play with this baby! I just swatched it on my hand and it looks lavender pink. I think that's how MAC describes it actually. I think if you pair it with a purple liner, more of the lavender will come out and if you pair it with a pinkish liner, more of the pink will come out. I plan on pairing it with purplish liners though. 

 

ETA: Nicki2 is almost in the same shade family as my NYX Power except Power isn't as "white".

That's why I'm disappointed too. Too pink, too milky. It may look nice with the right liner but I wanted something that didn't need a liner to make it nice.

I'm a little confused, myself, at the amount of pink in VG Nicki 2. Isn't lavender supposed to be on the cooler side (i.e., more blue) and lilac on the warmer side (i.e., more pink)?

 

I wouldn't say I'm disappointed, necessarily, but I did find it odd, since the color has specifically been referred to as "lavender." I just expected it to be a little truer purple.

post #465 of 689

This is a VERY NICKI color. But doesn't mean it would suit us (or her tbh). It's one of those extremely edgy colors that scream DRAG or JERSEY SHORE! 

post #466 of 689

I think a lot depends on the color of your lips too. When I look at the lippie in the tube, I see a light purple. When swatched, I see a light purple with maybe a hint of pink. My lips are funny. My top lip is brown and my bottom lip is pretty much pink (probably because I'm always picking my bottom lip) so I have no idea how this will look on my actual lips once I apply it. I'm not trying it on until I get rid of this funky cold I have. I must say though that I like how it looks on MacJunkie85. If it looks like that on me then I'm a happy camper.

post #467 of 689

Oh man, the color is too cool and pale for my skintone. The lipglass looks more promising from different bloggers' pictures. I think I will get that instead of the lipstick.

post #468 of 689

Other than the difference in finishes/formulas, can anyone compare VG Nicki2 to MAC's Fresh Amour?

The lipstick looks amazing on you! 

 

 

I really hope that VGN2 isn't Saint Germain's little sister or cousin because I might end up looking like a Jersey Shore reject.  D:  Maybe I'll just get the gloss instead.  I can't wait to try it out on Thursday.

My apologies for the terrible lighting, but I do think this photo shows the lipstick pretty true to color.

 

My VG Nicki 2 came in the mail today. I may just be part unicorn, but I actually really love it and find it a fairly wearable color. For reference, I am NW20, so the coolness and paleness of my skin may help a lot with that.

 

Anyway, here's a lip swatch:

 

There is a slight lilac tinge to it that isn't really coming across in the photo, but it more or less gives the look of a very, very, very cool (and pale) pink on me.

LOL well unicorn or not, the l/s definitely works for you!

I cannot believe how smooth Nicki 2 is.  And my lips are dry as hell today even.  So pretty.  Makes my teeth look yellower though eeksign.gif

post #473 of 689

Viva Glam Nicki 2 looks like it would fit in well with the Baking Beauties Collection!

Comparison swatches. I LOVE the new Viva Glam Nicki 2!!

Sorry for the messy lips but here's Viva Glam Nicki 2 on my lips:
post #476 of 689

Thank you, MACupGrl for the swatches. On your lips and arm it looks lavender which is what I want it to look like on me. On some swatches it appears more pink. MAC is playing with our heads again.angry.gif I hope mine looks like yours...more on the lavender side. It looks really pretty.

This is how I'm hoping Nicki2 looks on me when I try it on.

YES! I like how it looks on her. More lavender than pink. And you can see the blue undertones. Fingers crossed ours will look like this.flower.gif

I don't know if that's Nicki2 on her lips though. I'm just hoping that's the color I get once I apply it on my lips. girlhaha.gif

Thank you for the swatch!!!! Yeah, they're not alike at all....

In their tubes, FF on the left, VG N2 on the right:

 

On my inner arm, FF on the top, VG N2 on the bottom:

 

FF is darker and redder, while VG N2 is lighter and cooler. FF also has "pearl" in it. If this swatch shot sucks too much, let me know and i can try again.
