MAC Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipstick ($14.50) and MAC Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipglass ($14.50)
If I had pick between the two, I would have to pick the lipglass. It has a warmer tone and has more color. That’s if I had to pick between the two. In reality, I wouldn’t pick either one. It’s just too pale of a color. There’s barely any color to it. To me, it looked nothing like how it appeared in the ad:
On Lady Gaga, it looks like a gorgeous peachy, orange shade. On me? It looks like I applied concealer and forgot to add lip color. I don’t want to regret getting Gaga 2. I hope I find a way to make it work.

MAC Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipglass ($14.50) The Lady Gaga lovefest continues with the debut of this seductively pale milky-beige VIVAGLAM Lipglass. Wear it alone or with its Lipstick namesake. All monies raised go the M∙A∙C AIDS Fund to help support people living with HIV/AIDS. Limited edition.
I’m not a fan of the Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipglass. It was not the color I was expecting. It showed up too nude on my lips. The color looked like glossy concealer. The shade is just too beige to wear on its own. I looked as if I had been hiding the sun. I think if the shade had a bit more of a peachy, orange color like it did in the ad, it would look a lot better. Besides being greatly disappointed with the shade, I did like the quality of the lipgloss. It was a bit sticky, but it wasn’t watery thin. It lasted about 3-4 hours before I had to reapply. If you’re looking for a true nude color gloss, this could be it.

MAC Tinted Lip Conditioner SPF 15 ($14.50) A protective emollient balm formulated with SPF 15, a sheer wash of colour and an all-natural sheen. Conditions lips, locks in moisture. Contains Almond Oil, Shea Butter, Avocado Extract, Wheat Germ Oil, vitamins A and E.
This tinted lip conditioner wasn’t very conditioning. The conditioning effect only lasted about an hour, 2 hours tops. I do like the tint of color though. Even though the colors may appear bright in the jar, they appear soft on your lips. A perfect everyday color! Be aware though that the color isn’t very long lasting and you will have to reapply multiple times throughout the day. I don’t like how it is packaged in a jar. You have to use your finger or a brush to apply. If you use your fingers, be sure to clean them before (you don’t want to contaminate the lip conditioner) and after (the color will stain your fingertip). Overall, not worth it. Save your money and just buy a lip balm from the drugstore.
MAC Magic Mirth and Mischief She-Zam Dazzleglass ($18) Lipcolour that dazzles with light and shine to bring an exciting dimensional pop to your lips. Large particle pearls reflect and refract light to mimic the brilliance of quartz and opal crystal. Provides exceptional shine with a crystalline iridescence. Non-sticky, non-tacky, lightweight and moisturizing. Glides on. Wear alone, or layer over lipstick or Lipglass for dramatic effect. Features our signature M·A·C vanilla aroma.
Out of all the lipglosses that were part of the MAC Magic Mirth and Mischief Collection, I only picked up She-Zam. It is a silvery gloss with flecks of pink and silver shimmer. I admit it looks a little daunting and intimidating at first, but I figured what the heck. Give it a try. I am so glad I did! It looks so wonderful over a dark or light lipcolor. It is similar to a clear gloss, but this adds a bit more oomph than clear gloss. I can’t quite describe it. It just looks awesome! I feel this is the only worth while gloss of all the glosses offered part of the MAC Magic Mirth and Mischief Collection.
