Quick FOTD with Viva Glam Nicki Lipstick!

I had planned on not giving into the New Mac Vivaglam Nicki Minaj lipstick. I thought I had similar colours in my pink lipstick stash....but honestly, I DID NOT! =S All of my pink lipsticks were all BLUE TONED. I  had no warm tone pink lipsticks at all. I would describe this new lipstick as a very bright pink with hint of coral tone.
 I went over to Sherway Garden's MAC store and went straight to test out the new lipstick. I swatched it on my hands and compared it to Chatterbox lipstick.

 It is much brighter than Chatterbox for sure!
I wanted to try on the lipstick at the store and so I did! O-M-G! It was super duper intense bright! 
It was HOT!

I thought I wouldn't be able to pull it off...but honestly, I think I did. Or maybe it was the store lights? I probably can pull it off without a liner but liners always make the look complete to me. So I preferred to use Magenta lipliner to blend in the edges...I was quite satisfied with the overall look.  The MUA ladies also liked how it looked on me. The pigmentation is pretty good as it's a satin finish lipstick.

Seriously, these pictures do not capture how pretty this lipstick is in person. =(

It was very hard to capture the true brightness of this lipstick in these pictures. I adore this lipstick and have no regrets buying it. It's GORGEOUS! Do not be intimidated just because it seems so bright. Use a lipliner to tone and blend the edges or even a lipgloss of your choice. :)

Also, this lipstick is limited edition and will be out for a year and the funds go to charity. =D 

So what do you guys think of this so BRIGHT and GORGEOUS lipstick? Will you be getting it too or already have it?

VG Nicki looks great on you! I tried it on at the counter and it looked horrible on me =( It made my teeth and skin look super yellow. Not sure if it was the lighting or the lipstick but I passed.

This looks beautiful on you, I can't believe you would think you wouldn't be able to pull it off.

I haven't really followed the Nicki l/s hype, but I think I'm going to have to check it out next time I'm at MAC.
