Liner Love: Viva Glam Nicki Revisited
February 26, 2012 § 2 Comments
Oh, Viva Glam Nicki. Quite the ruckus you’ve caused since your release…. You’ve been debated like no other lipstick in my memory! People love you, they hate you, they praise you, they loathe you… so much hype and drama for one little lippie!
I know this lipstick is for an amazing cause, but it’s such a difficult shade for brown girls to wear! It also doesn’t help that Viva Glam Nicki looks very different from one pair of lips to the next. It seems to flatter a wider range of women of colour when it’s paired with a lip liner. I’ve gotten a few requests to show it with some liners I own, so without further ado:
*NOTE: Before you get the wrong idea, I wear this lipstick VERY sheer. I only layered it on like this for this picture.
(I still hate how much I need to exfoliate to wear this lipstick! It always makes my lips look crusty… hmph.)
Anyway, see how it looks paired up with More to Love, Currant, Embrace Me, Magenta, Cork, and Just Wonderful lip pencils:
More To Love Pro Longwear Lip Pencil | Intense Bluish Pink
Currant Lip Pencil | Intense Reddish Purple
Embrace Me Lip Pencil | Vivid Pinkish Fuchsia
Magenta Lip Pencil | Vivid Pinkish Purple
Cork Lip Pencil | Muted Golden Brown
Just Wonderful Lip Pencil | Dirty Mauve
Which liner (if any!) do you like Viva Glam Nicki with?
