Viva Glam Nicki SWATCH UPDATE
January 31, 2012 § 6 Comments
I got some feedback on my original Viva Glam Nicki post and decided to re-swatch this lipstick. Looking at these new photos, the colours in the original photos were definitely off. Sawwy! (Better lighting in the future, I promise)
I swatched Viva Glam Nicki again in lower lighting and layered it on a lot thicker to get more of the true shade. I think I captured it much more true to life this time around. With that said, you definitely still have to see this in person, because when you see it in the tube, it is a brighter, almost neon pink-coral in the tube itself.
FINAL WORD: I still stand by my original rating of this being BROWN GIRL FRIENDLY, but ONLY if it’s worn waaaaay more sheer for a soft pink look. Layering it on like I did for this review? No bueno for Brown Girls at all. To me, since this lipstick looks best when it’s not worn at full strength, is it really worth it to buy a lipstick only to dab it on? In my humble opinion, no need to rush the stores for this one, unless you are going for a particular kind of look, you want to support MAC AIDS Fund, you’re a Nicki fan, or of course, if you just really, really like bright pink lipstick!
In the lower lighting, I couldn’t get my cam to focus for the life of me. This was the best shot.
