I spy Spring 2013: MAC Viva Glam Nicki


We need to talk about Nicki.

Spring 2013 will see her second MAC Viva Glam shade, the Viva Glam Nicki 2, which is a “pastel lavender pink.” It comes with a lipglass in the same color family, which you can see below.

The first Nicki Minaj shade was described as a “bright yellow pink,” aka a shade I would not wear, though I imagine it could be really pretty on other people. The truth is that when it comes to lips, I am less adventurous. It is only recently that I have been trying out some of the more darker shades. At some point, my sister asked me why all of my lipstick looked the same. And I realized that while they all had their little differences from each other, they all looked fairly similar on my lips.

Now my point is, I have never tried lavender lips. To be honest, my adventures in lip color tend to lean towards the darker shades—plums, reds, even a sheer grape—but never light lipstick. Even my go-to “nude” lippie is barely a nude!

The question is: do I dare try this out?


I’m honestly quite curious! I think I’ll have to wait quite a bit before I can finally decide on getting this, but what do you guys think? Will I regret it right after paying for it, or will it give me the Nicki-sized boost of confidence I need?

Would you wear this shade?


  1. I do think I would — probably first for cosplay or photoshoots. I’m a bit shy to waer this when I step out, but I do think a shade like this could be great for a statement-making look!

    Also, for every tube of Viva Glam lipstick you guy, the proceeds go to help HIV-positive victims, so you support a good cause. 🙂

    • Ah, I don’t really use makeup for costumes or shoots; just regular days, that’s why I’m a bit apprehensive. I’m glad there are other shades in the line that are more wearable because it’s a great initiative by MAC. 🙂 I purchased my first one about two weeks ago and I love it!
