 MAC Viva Glam Nicki: mac cosmetics (£13.50) 

Im sure you'll be hearing alot about this over the next few weeks as its literally just been on pre-sale in the UK. But I've been waiting patiently for the release of MAC Viva Glam Nicki from the moment I read the press release about the collaboration on Temptalia. It came this morning and I literally swiped it on my lips as soon as I opened the box, From the initial shade description sounded too perfect to be true, and boy was I happy when it came. MAC Viva Glam Nicki is a bright mid toned pink with a yellow undertone. The yellow undertone means it does look more coral toned than your average bright pink lipstick. It's nice to see a pink thats not blue toned, Having warm toned skin I find it hard to find suitable pink lipsticks that flatter me. The finish is satin, although unlike alot of MAC satin lipsticks I found this to be much creamier than most, still full coverage in one swipe just not as semi-matte as I'd have hoped! As with all MAC Viva Glam lipsticks 100% of the proceeds (that's every penny from the sale) goes towards the MAC Aids fund. Its so refreshing to see a company give all of the money to charity from sales of a product rather than just a percentage. I'm going to be buying another tube of this as I know I'll be wearing it alot, plus its the same as donating to a charity and getting more than just a lipstick in return!
To my knowledge I don't think its actually on general sale yet, I bought mine during the presale using a code someone generously sent me!

  5. I hate when brands donate 5% to a charity, it's just not alot considering the money they make so for MAC to give all the proceeds is amazing! I love the colour also, it's such a pretty pink and really suits your skin tone.
