Viva Glam Nicki 2 is a limited edition lipstick from MAC’s Viva Glam line, where all of the money made from the sale is donated to help people impacted by HIV and AIDS. Described as a “pastel lavender pink”, Nicki 2 might be tricky to wear for some; at least this is a complaint I’ve heard off and on in some reviews. It is all about personal preference and what you are comfortable wearing! It also might take a bit of creativity and lip mixing to wear this shade if you don’t like it. Here’s an easy tutorial on making this color more wearable!
Viva Glam Nicki 2 lipstick
Pop Beauty Party Pop Crayon in Fuchsia Flirt
Rimmel 1000 Kisses Lasting Finish lip pencil in Indian Pink
MAC Prep + Prime for lips
Revlon retractable lip brush
First, apply MAC Prep + Prime all over the lips. You don’t have to use this; you can easily just use a lip balm that you have. Next, apply Indian Pink lip liner to the outline of the lips and fill in.
Take the lip brush and dab onto Viva Glam Nicki 2, and blot it over the center of the lips; don’t apply too much, because we still have to use the Pop Beauty pencil. It will look spotty for now, but that is fine.
Next, take the Pop Beauty pencil and dab it onto the spots where Viva Glam Nicki 2 isn’t applied. Taking the lip brush again, blend everything together until smooth, and a color that you are comfortable wearing is achieved. If you feel that too much product is applied, blot with a tissue to remove excess!
