MAC’s new Viva Glam From Our Lips campaign is designed to bring awareness of the challenges that women face now being the fastest growing group that are affected by HIV/AIDS in the world.
Now that Cyndi Lauper and Lady Gaga are spokespeople for Viva Glam, we are seeing some fabulous things!
We have already seen the Viva Glam lipstick that they created, and now we get the corresponding limited edition lipglasses! I for one am very pleased to see these because I generally wear lip gloss more than lipstick.
- Viva Glam Cyndi – Mid-tone dirty coral
- Viva Glam Gaga – Light blue pink
L to R: Gaga, Cyndi (NC20 skin)
Gaga is a very pale, cool pink that’s a little on the sheer side. There is definitely a lot of blue in it, just like the lipstick. I feel the Lipglass is definitely more wearable for more people than the lipstick was. It’s less harsh and “retro” looking, although personally I loved the lipstick on my skin tone. The one thing that always happens with these sheer pinks on me is the color settles right away into the lines in my lips, which isn’t my favorite thing. Of course it’s emphasized a lot here with this zoomed in picture.
Cyndi is a coral red with red and gold shimmer. I am very excited about this one because it’s not often I can find colors like this that work for me. I passed up the Cyndi lipstick because I felt it was too orange, but this is really gorgeous.
These are definitely worth checking out, especially if you liked the lipsticks and like Lipglasses in general. These will only be available for 6 months after they start selling, so strike while the iron is hot!
Did you get any of the lipsticks? Will you be picking either or both of these?
