Mac Viva Glam Nicki lipstick – Swatches and Comparisons :
Back for another quick post!
A couple of nights ago I tweeted a picture of me wearing the new Viva Glam Nicki lipstick from M.A.C, and I received a few questions regarding how the shade compares to other lipsticks.
I went through my collection and found 4 lipsticks that I thought would be interesting comparisons, and decided to do a quick post so you could judge whether or not you would be interested in a shade like Nicki!
(Natural Light, No Flash) Mac Viva Glam Nicki lipstick swatches :
Viva Glam Nicki lipstick is shown above as number 1, and I must say I am greatly impressed.
I am considering purchasing a backup of this color because it just is so absolutely gorgeous.
I think the yellow-based pink really fits well with my skin tone, and I think it would look gorgeous with a tan as well.
To see how it compares to other shades, I swatched four other colors –
#1 – Viva Glam Nicki
#2 – YSL Rouge Volupte #13
#3 – NYX Round Lipstick in ‘Fig’
#4 – Viva Glam Gaga
#5 – Rimmel London Lipstick in ‘Nostalgia’
In terms of these colors, YSL’s Rouge Volupte is a bit more orange/coral based than Nicki.
Fig is similar, but has a bit of a mauve undertone. Viva Glam Gaga is absolutely nothing like it, because this is a blue based baby pink. A lot of buyers were concerned as to whether or not Nicki would be like Gaga, and I can say for sure it’s not. I don’t even wear Gaga, too light!
Last but not least, I would say that Rimmel’s Nostalgia is the best dupe for Nicki. It’s a tad bit darker, but when all swatched together it seems to be a decent comparison.
I hope that this helped those of you looking to purchase or read up on Mac Viva Glam Nicki lipstick !
