Two Thing I Normally Don't Like Together in One...Day 2, Valentine Lip Theme

So here are two things I normally don't care for:

MAC Lipglass and Nicki Minaj.

And why am I giving this topic any of my free time? I actually bought the latest Nicki Minaj Viva Glam lipglass! Ugh...did I really buy this cool pastel pink lavender gloss that I have complained about being too think and uncomfortable in the past?

Yeah, I did.

I was in the middle of debating whether or not to get one of the best-selling shades, Rebel, (a deep pink berry) and the MAC MA told me to try the latest Nicki lipglass on top of it. Being the polite girl that I am, I said okay give me a tester wand.

Lo and behold, I loved it! Here it is on top of Rebel:

I love how it gives a great pink sheen in the middle of my pout. Ugh, those MAC girls...they are so evil!

I even spied it on one of the other MAC girls, she applied on top of More to Love (pink fuchsia) Pro Longwear lip liner pencil. Yes, I had to try this look on for myself:

Again, I just adore how it leaves a light subtle lavender pink sheen just in the middle of my lips. It lightens up the look just right. I am learning to get use to the thickness of this gloss. I don't apply too much and I keep it in the middle of my pout. 

And how does it look on it's own:

Pretty pastel and if worn alone, I get the worse case of corpse lips. If you are a fair gal, this would be adorable on it's own but if you're a bit swarthy like me, you'll need help to carry this shade off.

I guess I need to stop being a bitter old hater and to give things I normally toss aside another try. Once upon a time, I couldn't leave the house without my Nymphette and Oh Baby lipglasses in my cute little backpack, hey it was 1996 at the after all! I guess my lips just needed a long break.

As for Nicki, I appreciate what she's trying to do in today's music world and I know she has a fan base among girls of all ages, especially crazy singing dancing little girls on the daytime talk show circuit. My 4 year old daughter likes her pink wigs and crazy bright pink lipsticks.

Me, on the other hand, I'm still on the fence...I guess I'll never understand.

God, I'm old....

Lipglass, Viva Glam Nicki 2 - ($15/USD) sold at department stores featuring the MAC brand as well as freestanding MAC boutiques.

  1. you hooked me this time...I'm going to buy some tomorrow! Mac was my first cosmetic love affair so I'm always intrigued at the thought of going back and loving it again!
