MAC Viva glam Nicki Minaj

Hello everyone, hope you are all well! If you follow me on twitter you will know that last week I was in New York, and I had an amazing time! The sights were amazing and the city was beautiful (Brooklyn bridge was perhaps my favourite sight) and I did A LOT of shopping (mostly makeup) out there. It's my 21st birthday tommorow so I had some birthday spending money to take out there, and I didn't come back with a penny! (well..I came back with $1)

Hopefully my next post will be a makeup haul of what I bought out there, but for now I'm going to focus on one item; Mac Viva glam Nicki Minaj. The lipstick was launched while I was out there, and whilst I wasn't entirely sure on the colour I couldn't resist a cheeky limited edition impulse buy..and all of the proceeds from these lipsticks go to the MAC aids fund which is justification enough.
So for those of you in the UK waiting for the lipstick to be released, here's a sneak peak:

The lipstick is a satin finish which means it is slightly drying and you need moisturised lips. The Mac website describes the shade as a yellow-pink which is fairly accurate but I would say it has a touch of coral to it. Possibly comparible to Mac Impassioned.

Bit of a naff swatch, but I suppose I should include one.
The lipstick looks alot more muted and wearable on than it looks in the tube, the colour you see in the tube is quite scarey.

Overall I think this lipstick is a great buy if you are a fan of bright, unusual colours. There were a couple of darker skinned Mac ladies wearing it in store and it looked gorgeous on them so I think this lipstick would suit darker skintones well.

What do you think? Will you be buying Viva glam Nicki?
