MAC Viva Glam Swatches, Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper

All proceeds from sales of MAC cosmetics Viva Glam go to AIDS charities through the MAC AIDS Fund. This year, the MAC Viva Glam spokeswomen are Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper. Great choices in my opinion! Also this year, the lip shades are not deep reds, unlike many past years.

The new VIVA GLAM collection has two lipsticks – Viva Glam Cyndi (Light Coral Red) and Viva Glam Gaga (Light Blue Pink), as well as corresponding makeup bags.

Both MAC Viva Glam shades are quite nice. For the pink lovers, the Lady Gaga is a pretty, but still a bit vibrant light pink. the Cyndi Lauper Viva Glam shade is my favorite though. It is a nice coral red that gives a sheer neutral  to warm rosy red look. It lean toward coral, but not as much as the description would make it seem.

Below are swatches of the two shades. It is a total coincidence that they happened to perfectly match my Hello Kitty Band-Aid. Yes, I really do wear Hello Kitty Band-Aids (blush)!

  2. I am loving Cyndi, myself!

  3. I am trying to get my hands on the GAGA, unfortunately it has been sold out since it was launched in my city, UGH. And I dont really feel like paying $5.00 to have it shipped to me since that is more than 1/3 of the price.

  4. i just found out that Lady Gaga is also a mezzo soprano. she really has a great voice and i love her style. `
