Review/Haul: MAC Viva Glam Nicki 2

I finally picked up Nicki Minaj’s new lipstick from MAC, which I’ve been so excited to try.



MAC Viva Glam Nicki 2 lipstick is described as a pastel lavender pink with a Amplified finish.

The lipstick is a cool-toned light link colour with a creamy finish and a natural sheen. Viva Glam Nicki 2 is opaque and very long lasting.

I personally feel like this lipstick is way to light for my complexion and a lipliner is definitely needed for me. In the picture below I outlined my lips with Viva La Diva’s lipliner in Velvet and applied Viva Glam Nicki 2 in the centre of the lips for a nice ombré effect.

Overall I think this lipstick is a fun and unique colour, however this lipstick is not for everybody. I wish it was a bit darker so it would suit my skin tone and darker complexions better without a lipliner!

What do you think of this lipstick? Would you wear it?

  1. I bought it too and the lipgloss – just because of Ms. Minaj. I can’t pull it off, it’s waay too pale and just looks awkward without the eyeliner, so you are completely right! xx

    1. Girl, I saw your post and you looked fab! I actually tried using a redish lipliner after seeing your post, and I love that combo too 🙂

  2. I tried the gloss in the store… personally I love the look it gives… commands attention to the face…
    Havent tried the lipstick…
    Stop by my blog sometimes doll!…
    Still would love to feature you!

  3. You really rock that colour! I love the MAC Viva Glam program, but this colour is not for me. It will probably wash me out and it doesn’t suit my style but I admire everyone who can rock such a unique shade.

    1. Thanks! Yes this lipstick is a very unique shade and definitely not for everybody! Maybe you should try it with a red lipliner! It actually looks very pretty!

  4. I think you are too dark for this lipstick! I don’t mind the color itself, but I don’t know if I’d wear it! I should try!

    1. hmm..I know darker skin tones who rock this lipstick and it looks fab! but this lipstick is definitely not for everybody, but you should try it 🙂

  5. It’s a bit translucent so will go well ontop of any lipstick, I did a mini review about it and I find it looks better when combined with a darker lipstick.

      1. Plain lipgloss from Mac is quite good I find, it helps change up the effect of most lipsticks. With the Nicki collection, I tend to use the lipstick over a darker shade as a gloss since it has lustre and a is a bit sheer.

  6. omg i actually really really like this shade of lip stick.. i would probably have thought it was too light for me but this looks really nice, and i ws gonna ask u, ive been wanted a gold chain like that for soo long.. did u get it in ldn? x

    1. That’s what I initially thought, but it’s actually very pretty with a lipliner! It would look gd on you as well as we have similar complexion 🙂 try it! yes I got it at Miss London in Westfield Stratford! xx
