Finally picked up the new MAC Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipstick today!

MAC Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipstick

Described as a “light neutral beige”, the new Gaga 2 Lipstick is a warm sandy beige color. Unlike the previous Viva Glam Gaga Lipstick, it comes in the Amplified formula and is not drying at all. It applies smoothly with a creamy texture and great pigmentation. On my NC30 skin, it shows up as a light caramel color that is a tinge darker than my skin. Definitely not the kind of nude lipstick that will work on everyone or for every occasion but I like it nonetheless.

Below is a comparison of Viva Glam Gaga 2 with a few other nude lipsticks from MAC:

  1. Great swatches! I love the color!

  2. Gaga said on the today show that this lipstick is good for every skin tone. It looks good without the flash.

    • The reason why I said it might not be for everyone is because the
      Gaga 2 is not like your regular nude lipstick and does not contain much pink in it. It’s more like a flesh-color with brown undertones. I do like the color though.

  3. I’ve been really wanting a nude lipstick so I did some research and I think I’m leaning towards buying myth.. what do you think? Do you have a lip swatch of it anywhere? =]
