I’ve been getting a lot of questions and…concerns about how to wear the new MAC Viva Glam Nicki Lipstick.  Quite a few people have complained that the color is too bright or too bold.  In the nicest way possible, I typically respond by reminding them who Nicki Minaj is and I mention that she usually wears a bright and bold lip color, therefore the color is very representative of her style.

I believe that the color can be worn by all skin colors, tones, shades. It’s going to truly come down to the individual’s comfort zone and preference.  If the color is too bold and bright, you can always tone it down with a liner or a gloss.  Below are some ways I’ve paired the MAC Viva Glam Nicki lipstick with other MAC Lipglass colors.

Below I’m wearing MAC Viva Glam Nicki with MAC Viva Glam Cyndi Lipglass.  So far it’s my favorite gloss to wear with this lipstick. :-)

 

Next I’m wearing MAC Viva Glam Nicki with MAC Viva Glam VI Lipglass.  I really like this look too.  It gives the lipstick a subtle amount of shimmer.

Last I combined MAC Viva Glam Nicki with MAC Viva Glam VI Special Edition (Fergie lipglass)
