No Bad Romance here. If anything this love affair’s going stronger than ever… After The Monster Tour mayhem, Gaga’s back to being our VIVA GLAM Goddess once again , spreading the good word about the impact of HIV/AIDS on women, men and children everywhere. We’re unveiling a hot new shade in spired by The Lady and her passions, in both Lipstick and Lipglass. And by now you (and the world) know every cent from the sale of M∙A∙C VIVA GLAM goes toward the M∙A∙C AIDS Fund. The M∙A∙C World feels like a permanent part of the Gaga Galaxy, doesn’t it? On the VG displayer as limited edition for a full 12 months.
Viva Glam Gaga 2 is described as a light warm beige with an amplified finish. MAC also came out with a correlating lipglass in the same shade but I only chose to get the lippy ‘cuz I love my nudes.
On me, this is an ultra-nude with a hint of grey as in it looks like I’ve applied concealer to my lips but I like that look and you can easily work around it with a darker flesh-toned lip liner or maybe just some bronzer (I use Comfort MSF) to warm up the face so as to avoid looking like a corpse.
As with most nudes, this can highlight any imperfections you might have on the lips and is a touch drying but that’s to be expected from all nudes so it’s not really a deal breaker. Just exfoliate your lips regularly and apply some sort of clear lip balm beforehand and you’ll be in the clear.
