MAC Viva Glam Cyndi lipstick

When MAC first announced that they would be doing a collaboration with Lady Gaga and Lady Lauper I think most people were interested to see what kind of lipstick Gaga would "create". And while the barbie pink Gaga lipstick is definitely successful, the not-so-in-your-face Cyndi proved to be quite a hit as well.

The colour is a beautiful corally red with a bit of pink thrown in for good measure and I think that's reason it suits so many different skin tones - it's just a mixture of different tones, not too cool and not too warm (also, it has a high rating of 4.6 at MakeupAlley).  It's a lustre finish, the shimmer is very fine and it just looks glossy on the lips. This colour would probably be a great starter red for anyone who doesn't want to go fully opaque and bright yet.

The pink is most obvious in this photo


It feels comfortable on the lips although it's not in any way moisturizing but it's not drying either.

It's a bit brighter in real life but you get the idea. Sheer but buildable, shiny, very wearable, my idea of a lipstick that just looks great with any type of makeup.

Cyndi weighs 3 grams and costs 13.50 GBP/16.50EUR.
