Whilst I was in Bristol last month I had the chance to check out VGG2 in person, I waited until I could as I wasn't sure if it would be lean to brown on me, being so pale.

Here's the review, since a few of you asked for it I figured I'd do it as soon as I could!



What www.maccosmetics.com says:


No Bad Romance here. We're unveiling a hot new shade inspired by Lady Gaga and her passions, in both Lipstick and Lipglass. And by now you know every cent from the sale of M∙A∙C VIVA GLAM goes toward the M∙A∙C AIDS Fund. Limited edition for a full 12 months.

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. For each sale of MAC Viva Glam Lipstick and Lipglass, the full RRP (less VAT) from the sale of this lipstick goes toward helping women, men and kids everywhere affected by HIV and Aids.

So what do I think of this? Without being too bias considering I love the GaGa. I love it, not as much as VGG1 but I still.

It's a lighter version of my lips so it gives me that nude lip without looking to concealer likw.

I'm a big fan of Amplified finishes, they have a really good pigmentation pay off. You can apply just a light coat for a sheer wash or layer it on a bit more for full on impact. Sometimes it does settle in the lines a little (pictured above) but it really isn't that noticeable.

I'm glad I picked this up as it goes really well with just foundation and lots of lashes for that barely there look. Or you can use it to keep lips toned down whilst wearing a heavy eye.

Not only that but considering all the proceeds go to the AIDS fund, I've donated to charity and got something pretty for my penny. So if you're not sure about picking it up, do so anyway! At least you've done something good in return.

Have you got Viva Glam GaGa 2? What do you think of it?

I think the Lipglass is next on my shopping list ...
