So I took a trip to the M.A.C. store in West Mall and saw that they just got the Spring Colour Forecast collection.  Why was EVERYTHING sold out??? Boo…..

Also noticed that they got the new limited edition Viva Glam lipsticks in Cyndi & Gaga.  Both colours are surprisingly sheer especially the Cyndi.

VG Gaga (l), VG Cyndi (r)

Cyndi is a sheer red with a hint of coral.  I think this is very wearable for women of colour.  It’s a good starter red, for those who are afraid of bold reds but want to ease into wearing red lips.  You could wear this red with a smokey eye or layer it to make your lips the focal point.  I really like this colour and I am going to have to get it!!!!!!

Gaga is the colour that folks were buzzing about!! This is also sheer but it is a little more opaque than Cyndi and its a true bubble gum pink.  On me it looks a little ashy (for reference, I am NW45), but could be worn with a darker lipliner like Nightnoth or Current.  I think a little more work would need to be done to make it work, for women with darker skin tones.

All in all, they are both good colours and besides, 100% of the proceeds goes towards the M.A.C. Aids Fund.

Laters! 🙂
