A Nicki Minaj inspired look using Viva Glam Nicki!

I'm sooo excited I got my Viva Glam Nicki in the mail today!!!  I was lucky enough to get a code e-mailed to me from MAC so I could get this lipstick before it releases on the 15th and of course, since I love Nicki, I had to get it haha.  I got the "Pink Friday" lipstick when she released it a little over a year ago.  Apparently if Nicki releases a lipstick, I MUST own it haha.  I obviously had to do a look using this new lipstick so I went with a look inspired by Nicki Minaj!!

I believe it's her Super Bass video where she has yellow on her lids and I very rarely wear yellow so I definitely wanted to try that!


What I used:
Too Faced Shadow Insurance
Maybelline Color Tattoo "Fierce & Tangy" as a base
Sugarpill "Buttercupcake" 
"Naked" and "Sin" from Urban Decay's Naked palette
MAC Blacktrack fluidline
L'oreal Voluminous Carbon Black Mascara
Ardell "Hotties" lashes
(I know the lashes are COMPLETELY 100% wrong but they're the only really long lashes I had on hand, so I just went with it!)!

Lips:
Viva Glam Nicki lipstick

This lipstick is gorgeous!  It's a bright pink color that pulls coral

Swatched compared to other pinks I own
As you can see, it's quite similar to Covergirl Lip Perfection lipstick "Fairytale" it's more pink while Fairytale is a bit more red.  It's very different from her "Pink Friday" lipstick, which I put on with this yellow look I did and turns out I like it better paired with the yellow shadow (I'm thinking it's because it's such a purpley pink).


I have to say that I really love this Viva Glam Nicki though and I think it's a color that will look good on everyone!  It releases on Feb. 15th so make sure you're on the lookout for it!  Also, in case you didn't already know, it is a Viva Glam lipstick which 100% of the proceeds go to funding AIDS research.  So all $14.50 goes to a great cause and you get a beautiful lipstick.  Who could ask for more?

*Edit*:  Thinking about this post made me realize that this look I did is very similar to a look Kassie from Unique Desire did a while ago using Lime Crime Cosmetics (hers is just slightly more pastel).  So definitely check her look out!!

  5. This is just gorgeous! You look fabulous in yellow. I think I like it better with the second lipstick, too. Both lippies and lovely colours, though.

  6. The lashes are NOT totally wrong! I think they, and this look, look gorgeous! I think the second lip color looks better because it's a tad bit cooler toned and plays off the yellow.

    1. Aw, well thank you! I completely agree about the lipstick playing off of the yellow (the whole opposite on the color wheel thing haha).

    1. Well welcome! And thank you very much! I use the bronzer from the ELF studio blush/bronzer duo for most of my contouring. Every once in a while I'll throw in some of NYX's "Taupe" blush, which is VERY grey toned.
