MAC Viva Glam Cyndi and Gaga Lipsticks Reviews and Pictures

February 16, 2010

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

Viva Glam Gaga Lipstick

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

Viva Glam Cyndi Lipstick

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!

    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.

    The Cyndi lipstick is not as red as it looks. Like I said, it applies more like a coral than red. I’ll post swatches tomorrow =)

    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!
