MAC Viva Glam Cyndi and Gaga Lipsticks Reviews and Pictures

The latest Viva Glam collection, From Our Lips, bring us two new lipsticks named after Cyndi Lauper and Lady Gaga.

While Viva Glam Cyndi Lipstick may look red in the tube, this “light reddish coral” does show up more coral than red on me. It also goes on really moist and leaves behind a really pretty stained look even after it has dried up. I will definitely be wearing this a lot!

Viva Glam Gaga Lipstick, on the other hand, is a cool-based baby pink color. It is also in the Lustre formula but I find it slightly less hydrating than the Cyndi Lipstick and it tends to accentuate flakes.

  1. Definitely picking one of these up next time I go to MAC! I don’t know which one I want though, the Cyndi Lauper lipstick might be a little too red for me and the Lady Gaga lipstick looks too light for most skin tones.

  2. Oooh, I tried these on at a Mac store as soon as I could. I wanted to buy a Viva Glam lipstick and I couldn’t decide between the Viva Glam VI SE one and Cyndi. Since I am still conflicted, I am thinking on it some more before I go back and purchase one or both. Can’t wait to see your swatches!
