Here’s a quick swatch of both the VG Cyndi lipstick and lipglass. Very complimentary!!
So with the success of the Viva Glam SE lipsticks featuring Cyndi and Lady Gaga, M.A.C. is coming out with the matching lipglosses. These are already supposed to be out at Nordstrom, and will become available in other locations in September. I still have not gotten my VG Cyndi nor VG V, so my list is only going to get bigger!! Sigh….
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.
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.
Ok, this mini collection kinda has the same hype that Hello Kitty had last year. People are super psyched about this limited release!!! It’s going to be one of the coolest Viva Glam campaigns (I still think that the coolest one was the RuPaul/KD Lang campaign for the original release of VG I back in 1994). The From Our Lips collection is now available on the M.A.C. website which probably means that it’s going to the released is stores on Thursday 11th February Wednesday 10th February.
I think it’s time that I get my first Viva Glam lipstick and I am sooooo looking at VG Cyndi, which is described as ‘a light reddish coral’ and it’s in a lustre finish so its sheerish and super creamy!!!!!!!!!!! The packaging alone has me sold!!! Deep metallic red on black with the black signatures. These are going to be collector’s items for sure!!!!
Check out the face charts!!! I love the Cyndi look!

So I’m kinda mad that I’m missing M.A.C.’s Spring Colour Forecast launch party that’s happening tonight (I think!!) all across the U.S. This is a MASSIVE collection, falling on the anniversary of the Hello Kitty collection (I cyah believe that it has been a year since HK launched!). It’s broken up into 4 colours – Pink, Coral, Plum & Amber. I have not seen these products live but there must be something for everyone!!! It runs the gammet from pastels to brights, mattes to frosts, and safe to daring! I have my eye on just a few of the products from the Spring Colour Forecast 1 – the Pink collection, namely Pink Burst and Laugh A Lot lipsticks. There are even a few new products like the Crushed Metal Pigments – stacks of pigments with a metallic shine and the Ombre Blushes. Temptalia.com has some great swatches and an extensive review.
The collection is now available online, and available in stores on Feb. 11th in the US.
I also heard that they are moving up the launch date of the new Viva Glam lipsticks featuring Cyndi Lauper and Lady Gaga!!! I hear its coming also on the 11th, but we’ll see. Cyndi’s colour looks interesting!!!
What products from the Spring Colour Forecast should I get????
