Viva Nicki2 I'm in love

Morning Diamonds,
           ok so this post is 2 weeks over due! But you love me anyway right!

As many of you know MAC launched another VIVA GLAM lipstick with Nicki Minaj. So this is VivaGlam Nicki2. 

I am totally in love with this lipstick! I have been grabbing for lilacs and lavenders and purples for that past few weeks...and this is totally me!

And it's not just because I am a NICKI fan. (and proud of it ) but the color has my name all over it. 





It is a lovely pastel Lavender - Pink color. Is is an Amplified finish and is sooooo creamy. 

Once applied, the color stayed for a few hours without any retouching. This lipstick is very opaque, and gives off a lovely sheen without the need of a gloss. There is a matching gloss, but alas I don't have it!!
I have been asked if there are any dupes. After going through my stash... here are some that come close. 
Hope this helps. 

There is also another dupe from LIME CRIME called D'Lilac I used it recently in a look here.

Look: The Stay At Home Mom!

I have been asked to show a quick look for us at home mommas that want want to look like we actually  took time for ourselves. This is a face I do often. I focus on a bold lip and simple eyes.

Using a tinted moisturizer gives a nice even coverage and canvas while not looking "overdone". Go with a winged liner, mascara and you're done.
