MAC Viva Glam II

Mac Viva Glam collections and their advertisement campaigns have become somewhat iconic in the beauty industry,with famous stars from Lady Gaga,Christina Aguilera,Eve and Cindi Lauper all taking part over the years.Viva Glam as many of you will know is the charity set up in 1994 by MAC to raise money for the millions of people around the world affected by aids.MAC create collections of their world famous lipglass and lipsticks for Viva Glam and every penny spent on them (minus tax) goes directly to the charity! 
After reading about the charity and the sheer amount the viva glam campaigns have made for it,i knew i wanted my first piece of MAC makeup to be a viva glam one! I was excited to travel up to Manchester for the first time a few weeks ago and made a stop by selfridges and the MAC counter and looked at the number of different viva glam lipsticks they had on offer.I was instantly drawn however to Viva Glam II! 

Sorry for the poor shape of my bullet, forgot to snap it before i started using it!

Viva Glam II is a stunning creamy nude brown shade, which is one of MAC's satin lipstick formulations. It has brilliant colour payoff and i find personally its pigmented enough to give me a full on nude lip but not opaque and drying to the point where it looks like you have foundation on your lips! I do think this lipstick will suit a vast number of people,i myself was worried about it not looking right on me as i am so pale but it has easily become my favourite lipstick! Plus knowing the £13.50 pricetag i paid for it is mainly going to a good cause makes me feel better!
