MAC Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipstick Review, Photos, and Swatches


MAC Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipstick ($14.50) The VIVA GLAM and Lady Gaga collaboration takes off again with a shade as enigmatic as the Diva’s star persona. A light warm beige with an Amplified finish, the look is as cool as only she can be. All monies raised go the M∙A∙C AIDS Fund to help support people living with HIV/AIDS. Limited edition.

My Thoughts:

I am very sad to say that I am not happy with MAC’s Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipstick. The formulation and texture are great. It was creamy and not over drying. The lasting power was typical of a lipstick: about 4 hours and had a semi-matte finish. What made me so disappointed was the shade itself. I thought the shade would have a bit of peachy, orange to it. All it looked like to me was a concealer shade in lipstick form. I was hoping it would look like what it did in the ad:

I realize it’s a nude shade, but I wish it had more warmth and color. The lipstick shade did not appear remotely peachy, orange as it did on Lady Gaga. Instead, it looked like I hadn’t seen the sun in ages. It basically looked like I slapped on some concealer on my lips. On a happy note, if you’re tired of using concealer or foundation to conceal your natural lip color, you can use MAC Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipstick to do the job.

  • You’re right, that is just awful! It’s the corpse lips look. You would look so much better in a lipstick with some peach or coral tones, not this flat beige.

    I do think there will be many women who love this color, since they do like the nude lip look. I just don’t like it, and prefer a “my lips but better” shade, which means it has to have some color and not match my foundation. A little peach, or mauve, or pink, something!

    I also didn’t like the pale Lady Gaga 1 shade, Cyndi is more my style.
