One of my favorite thing about MAC is their Viva Glam idea. My next favorite would be the "Back to MAC" of course ;D. Viva Glam lipsticks and glosses are for a good cause. The full price of 14.50 USD is all donated. MAC does not profit at all. M·A·C will donate every cent of the selling price of Viva Glam Lipstick and Lipglass to the M·A·C AIDS Fund to support men, women and children living with HIV and AIDS. This way you can beautify yourself as well as donate to a good cause. Actually because of the purpose of this line, I make more uneccessary purchases because I can justify my expenses!
After falling in love with Cyndi's Viva Glam lipstick, which was launched the same time as the GAGA lipstick, I couldn't help but be excited when the news of a new GAGA lipstick was leaked. I personally did not like the GAGA lipstick, but on others I loved it! I'm not into pastey colors because I am on the tanner side and do have pigmented lips.
Shortly after the lipsticks was goo goo gaa gaa by almost everyone, MAC launched the lipglosses and again I was very skeptical because I felt like it wasn't my cup of tea. I'm not really into glosses at the time, but Karla Sugar had a LIP OF THE DAY and surprisingly it was gorgeous. I converted and bought two! haha See what blogs can do to you AND me?
Ok so here for the new GAGA Viva Glam VII... Gloss and lipstick is both released at the same time. Tomorrow the new GAGA will be in MAC stores and counters, but online Nordstrom already have it up.
The color is too beige and creamy. I think it is going to be like the original GAGA Viva Glam just not pink. The finish is amplified, so I think it will cover pigmented lips well. The only other way I think this color would look good is if you use it to mute your lips and apply a color you wish shows up on your lips like it does in the package. BUT I hope I'll like it... because it is for a GOOD CAUSE ;D
IF you decide to get it or happen to stop by the counters and try it out, please let me know how you like it! I won't be rushing out to have a look, but I will come back with my input after my weekly run to Nordstrom.
Have a great day!
