Some more Viva Glam!!!

Hey guys!!

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….

Swatches!!! M.A.C. Viva Glam Cyndi & Gaga

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! :-)

Viva Glam Gaga and Cyndi are here!!!

From Our Lips...

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!

Anniversary Collection: M.A.C.’s Spring Colour Forecast

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????

Laters!!!
