MAC Viva Glam Gaga swatches & mini-review


Love Lady Gaga. Love MAC. Love pink lipstick. So needless to say, I'm loving this. For those of you not familiar with the MAC Viva Glam campaign, 100% of the proceeds of VG products go to the MAC AIDS fund.
This color is really nice. It's a lustre formula, but the payoff is great. It's very shiny and can be applied sheer if you use a light hand, but the color builds very quickly to a very noticeable, but wearable pink.




The release date for this seems to be different all over the place. So just call your counter or store if you're unsure of it's availability. But it is available at maccosmetics.com already.


on left, I built up the color a little
just one swipe on right

(natural light, no flash)



Totally didn't plan the matching nail polish. It's the shade "Barbie" by Zoya.

  17. I want to go out to try it on!!!! I am one of those people who actually have to see it in person and try it on before purchasing. I am deeply snowed in so it doesn't matter anyway! Ugggh I want to go and try sooo many different things right now that I ALMOST want to buy on-line just to get that fix!

  18. purchased this this afternoon and I was a little taken back when I first saw it because it's a little too pink for me, but after I put it on, I absolutely love it. I think I might head back to get another one after work today.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I really thought this was SO pretty, but after trying it on I thought it looked too garish, I felt like an 80s hooker or something lol

    ReplyDelete
  22. honestly, before i even noticed the color of the lipstick, I noticed your nails..the color is so gorgeous, I am definitely adding both the lipstick and the polish to my collection :o) Thanks for this post bc the mac site doesnt usually show a great representation of color. it looks much pinker in your pictures then on their site! (which i love)

    ReplyDelete
  23. oooo I plan on definitely buying this!

    ReplyDelete

  26. I really liked it at first and I bought it, but when I put it on my lips I didn't like it very much. I'm going to go return it. It looks nicer in the tube and as a swatch, not on my lips :( it went on too dark.

  37. So pretty, thank you for sharing this with us! You should do a tutuorial on Lady Gaga look!!!!
    Missing your tutorial!!!

  38. I just went and bought this today! I was SO excited when I heard MAC would soon have a Lady Gaga beautiful pink lipstick. I purchased Soar lip pencil, and Like Venus dazzleglass to go with it... I have never been a girl to venture out with pink or red lip colors (ALWAYS stick to very neutral and nude tones) but this was GORGEOUS on!

  39. I just got it and it is theeeee most perfect shade of pink on me! I wore it alone with just carmex underneath.

    also, i am fairly light skinned. it doesn't make me look like a barbie doll. This has become my #1 fave Mac lippie.

  40. Can you please post a picture with you wearing the lipstick? I would really like to see how it looks on lips.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Ooo, I love this! I think I am going to have to pick it up!!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I bought both this and the Cyndi Lauper version (reddish-coral color) Both are gorgeous and look so different layered or with different lip-liners and gloss. And for such an amazing cause!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I am looking forward to checking this and the Cyndi lipsticks out! I've been hearing such great things about both.

    ReplyDelete
  44. can u do a makeup tutorial with this lipstick? i just want to know what sort of makeup goes with the colour :)

  45. How does Gaga compare to St. Germain?

    ReplyDelete
  46. Almost bought this yesterday when I went to pick up some other must have. Kick'n myself now. Thanks for the swatches. Helps really see what they look like on.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I tried this on the day it came out, it's very pretty don't get me wrong but the color isn't for everyone, I'm fair skin and I look like a barbie doll, I think for me St.Germain is more of a wearable color cuz it's a little more darker, I don't think everyone can wear lady Gaga, but thats just me

    ReplyDelete
  48. Super pretty looking but I don't think I'd wear it =)

    ReplyDelete
  49. I love it applied lightly with True Babe lipglass on top for medium toned skin. The lipglass over Gaga helps it last longer anyway so the extra color punch is a bonus.
