Although I never done a review before I wanted to share my thoughts on the new Nicki Minaj’s Pink Friday M.A.C collaboration.
I was so excited because the lipstick+lip conditioner was released on February 15, 2012 the same day my BFF Karina and I were headed to Drake’s Paradise Club Tour Concert. (More about that later.) Anyway, I was planning to pick up the shade after work, yeah didn’t work, so I ordered it online and it came this friday! (Insert Pink Friday pun here…)
On to the review.
The Nicki’s Viva Glam is definitely not for the faint of heart.
Bold Color, Creamy, Color true
What you need to know:
Like many of the creamy textures that M.A.C has it is critical that your lips be moisturized with no excess lip skin (shed) or the color will look off. The other reason I make an emphasis on moist lips is because like another reviewer said and I agree this lip color is a bit dying (perhaps it was intentional, being that it is marketed with Ricky’s lip conditioner)
Long Wearing: Maybe if you were wearing a primer or a lip pencil underneath, but in my experience that was not the case. (Reapplied x2)
Application: Some customers expressed concern on the shades application I recommend that because shade is a Satin/creamy finish it best to dab and do short strokes. Direct application in big motions is awful (trust me, I did this way and my BFF made fun of me.)
Overall I love this color. Love Nicki and Viva M.A.C’s great cause. Will wear it every day! :D
Too lazy to do anything these days, but I have a paper that is due today ugh…
Also, the Juicy Couture sale at Hautelook today was very disapponting. Can’t wait for tomorrow though because of the Nicki+Ricky Viva Glam Sale at M.A.C tomorrow I promised myself I’d get a shade of Nicki’s Lipstick since I missed out on the Pink 4 Friday shade last year.
I hope it dosen’t get sold by the time I get back from School…
Another great thing that is happing tomorrow is the Drake’s Tour (which start today) will be here in G-vile and guess who has tickets? I do! So excited I have an outfit and everything (but pants *must do laundry*) Karina and I are going to live it up tomorrow.
This morning for my EDF1101 Class (Intro to Education) we leaned about teacher salaries my professor brought up IRA’s. IRA’s are awesome investment accounts that I wished I had known about (I am SO doing the wrong major lol ). Anyway, I’m so glad I didn’t miss class. Since then I have been reading about IRA’s if you are like poor/college student this is very important for you to know. Click the link above to go to Investopedia for more a clear definition on IRA’s, CD’s, etc.
Investment are good and it is about time that I get my butt to saving.
