Mac Viva Glam Nicki Minaj

Posted by Uheartmevs at 11:52 PM 0 comments
I am not a fan of Nicki Minaj but I admit that everytime I'm watching her videos her bold and vibrant make up always caught my attention and that includes her bright, bold pink lipstick so when I heard about this Mac Viva Glam Nicki Minaj lipstick I started to feel excited about the shade. I  then immediately googled about it and I fell in love with the shade, it is so pretty but too bright. I was so hesitant to purchase it however a friend of mine who is a certified Mac addict recommended this shade and so I gave this one a try plus it's a limited edition. I grabbed the opportunity while it's still available in the market.

The packaging of Mac Viva Glam Nicki Minaj is different from the Mac permanent line of lipsticks. The box has signature of Nicki Minaj in red and the box is in matte black with a Mac logo in red as well as the inner tube and comes with the Nicki Minaj's signature as well. 

The shade is definitely a vibrant pink! Somehow a bright carnation pink. Makeup gurus describe it as cool-toned bright pink with yellow undertone. 

It is a satin finish just like Pink Noveau so it's a bit drying on lips, make sure to have your lips moisturize before applying it. Staying power is not that good, it will only last for 3-4 hours and does not wear off evenly so make sure you always have this beauty tube in your cosmetic pouch. 

It still has its signature vanilla scent just like other Mac lipsticks.

 Here's a swatch against my skin. Forgive the bad lighting

Comparable swatches: L-R: Mac Show Orchid, Mac Pink Noveau, Mac Viva Glam Nicki, NYX Fig, NYX Matte Shocking Pink

The good thing about it is that every penny of Viva Glam Nicki Minaj sale will be donated to those women, men and children living with and affected by HIV and AIDS. 


This has to be one of my favorite pink lipsticks ever. I love how this shade can really brighten up my face. It is a very playful and vivid color. They say this one is hard to pull off but I think it's how you carry it and of course with the right application. Maybe, not the everyday kind of lipstick but definitely this one is a scene- stealer, so Nicki Minaj.

Rating: 9/10:

I totally love the shade but the lasting power is not good so I gave this one a 9. Will I purchase it again? Absolutely! I am actually thinking of purchasing a back-up. :)

Where to buy:
Mac Show Orchid
Php 880, ES_Online

So what do you think of this guys?

I do

I know this post is long overdue but since our  first wedding anniversary will be next month I have decided to finally make a post about our wedding. The main reason why I am so hesitant in posting this is that I am at lost for words to rhyme my thoughts and feelings about it.

Me and my husband were in a relationship for 8 years of agony and ecstasy, of  love and hurt, of trust and betrayal, of holding on and letting go. Perhaps, there is no need for me to tell tale our love story, the length of time we've been with each other maybe enough to keep you thinking the things that we have been together, that amidst all the storms that we passed we still managed to dance in the rain, and after all the tears that we shed we are still our cheeseball selves. I guess that happens when you fall in love with your best friend, soul mate and your true love; every fight is worth the fight.

April 28, 2012 was the day of goodbye single life and welcome married life. Have a peek of our wedding photos.

and here comes the newly weds.

You may now kiss the bride.

Looking through all those photographs makes my heart grow fonder and hum songs of love and even though almost a year have passed the memories are still meant to last. Yes, I married the man that I love, the man that I was meant to love, and the man that God gave me and even though there are still more storms to come, pain to endure, sacrifices to make still I believe that all these things will come so easy breezy as long as we have God to bind us together.


"But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female.'  'For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife,  and the two will become one flesh.' So they are no longer two, but one.  Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate." Mark 10: 6-9
