My 1st MAC product!



Saw on Xiaxue's tweet few days ago saying she finally got her MAC VivaGlam Lady Gaga lippie! Happened to be at Tampines Isetan MAC today and happened to ask about the lipstick as they never displayed it out. Guess what, they restocked it!

As stated in MAC's website:

"Established in 1994 to support men, women and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS globally, VIVA GLAM I, II, III, IV, V and VI, were launched as continuous shades and have achieved tremendous success over the years. Spring 2010 sees two new VIVA GLAM shades introduced as limited life for 12 months on counter. Ladies and gentlemen, we give you the sensational Cyndi Lauper and the electric Lady Gaga! "


"Every cent of the selling price of VIVA GLAM Lipstick and Lipglass is donated to the M·A·C AIDS Fund to support men, women, and children living with HIV and AIDS."




Love the cool shape of the lipstick. Reminds me of a bullet.= X


Under florescent lighting:
Love the Barbie Pink! & Gaga's signature on the case!

Close up colour (less lighting):

Swatches of the rouge:
On the left: One layer of the pink.
On the right: Few layers of the pink colour.


Before: My bare & super dry lips (lazy to put on lipbalm)


After: With Vivaglam Gaga on. (Ugly dead skin arghh)


Review

Packaging:

The box alone is special with Lady Gaga's "signature" printed on it in red. The actual lipstick casing itself, also has Lady Gaga's signature on it. If you are a Gaga fan, this is definitely a collector's item for you.

Product:

In terms of it colour it is a light pink with blue undertone (Lustre), an electric pink which is very Gaga! I love the girly pink. It is pigmented, but sheer if you only apply one layer. With a few more layers, I could easily cover my own lip colour!

I think anyone would be able to pull this colour off as long as you complement it with the right makeup on the rest of the face. This would look good with eyeliners, and smokey eye looks !

But the downside is that it is a bit drying. If you want to get lipsticks that are moisturising this is definitely not for you. Thus I would have to use lipbalm 1st before applying the colour. Pairing it with a clear gloss or any other coloured gloss that can complement the lipstick colour would also solve the problem.

But since this is a collector's item (in my opinion) + such a lovely Cool Pink colour ♥  + All sales of the Vivaglam lipsticks would go to the M.A.C AIDS Fund, I definitely would recommend to buy this!

Update: Forget to add in the price. Retailing @ $28SGD at all MAC counters! Not very expensive!

I give it : ♥♥♥♥  =)
