MAC Viva Glam Nicki Minaj Lipstick – do you need it?

COMPARISONS | MAC Viva Glam Nicki Minaj Lipstick — do you need it?

 The 2012 MAC AIDS Fund spoke persons are Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin (release date: 2.15.12). I did a previous post hauling in my new Nicki Minaj lipstick but the question is:
 Do I have to run out to get it?
MAC Viva Glam Nicki Minaj Lipstick - do you need it
MAC Viva Glam Nicki Minaj is a warm coral pink unlike the MAC Pink Friday (cool toned baby pink) lipstick Nicki Minaj released last year.
REVIEW
PIGMENTATION: 5/5
TEXTURE: 4/5
LONGEVITY: 4/5
OVERALL: 4/5
THE GOOD:

  • Pigmented
  • Extremely unique color
  • Bright neon glow for that spring/summer look
THE BAD:

  • Satin finish tends to accentuate lines
  • Drying over time
Bottom Line: If you like bold lip choices then this one is a no brainer! If you’re not used to neon or bright lips then you should opt out of this one especially because satin’s aren’t the best MAC formulation.

How the lipstick looks on me. It appears a little more neon in real life.

WnW Megashield in It’s My Birthday – definitely the closest in terms of color but a smidgen too cool.
Covergirl Lip Perfection in Fairytale
– too coral, this color is more similar to MAC l/s in Watch Me Simmer that came out with the MAC Shop Cook Collection
Rimmel Lasting Finish in Nostalgic
– Very similar but leaning a bit too coral
Random lipstick
– Most lipstick are really bright blue based pink compared to Nicki Minaj
NYX Round Lipstick in Lousiana
– Too blue based hot pink

I have nothing like this lipstick in my collection. I have colors that are similar but don’t give off the fluorescence the MAC Nicki Minaj lipstick gives. It’s has a beautiful warm coral tone without being anywhere close to orange.
