MAC's Viva Glam Nicki | Review

Hello lovelies,
Happy Friday! Today is going to be another review! Seeing a pattern here on Fridays? ;)

Recently, MAC deicded to collaborate with Nicki Minaj on a collection. I had seen this around the Beauty blogosphere/YouTube land and had wanted to try it so, when in Rome!

When I went to MAC, I hadn't actually planned to get this lipstick. I couldn't decide between it and MAC's 'Candy Yum Yum', another famous lippy, but I thought it was a little too bright for me, so opted for the safer option!

Firstly, the most obvious thing, is this colour. I personally love it! It's really great on the lips, doesn't fade and is great if you want to keep is fairly relaxed with the hair. Adding a bright lip, makes it look like you've made more of a effort! It's incredibly pigmented, as are all of MAC's lipsticks! Compared to MAC's Ruby Woo, I feel that this applies better and is a lot more moisturising.

I also love the packaging! I love the burst of colour and the printed signature. It's a really nice addition!

Now onto the product performance.
It's a satin finish which means it is one of the more moisturising finishes in MAC's collections. It's easy to apply and doesn't dry out the lips, unlike MAC's Ruby Woo (Review Here.) The satin finish is perfect for me because I find matte finishes very drying and I don't like having a shimmery lipstick. I want a grown-up style lipstick yet with a hint of youth. This captures it perfectly!

Longevity-wise, it is great. When first applied as a swatch, it was really pigmented. However, when left on the lips, it does lose some of it's colour. It still lasted well though! For me, it's perfect!

Overall though, I would recommend this.
It's super-nourishing, easy to apply and the pigmentation is great!
It's perfect if you're wanting a lipstick for a nice event and want to look grown-up yet, want to still look youthful. I think it's great!

Unfortunately, I cannot provide a link as it is no longer available online, however, may be available in store, but if you want it you better get it quick!

Have you tried it? What do you think of it?
