Lady Gaga Viva Glam 2 swatch

(Shades appear to be lighter in all pictures)

Hello Everyone.. I know I haven't been blogging lately.. I was away on vacation and I did get a lot of items that I have been testing out that i will be reviewing soon. I have bought some items from all of the Mac collections released, but I have to say i found the collections disappointing nothing special. I'm trying to do swatches of all the items and combine them in one post.

Anyhow, I received my lady Gaga lipstick last week. I was so thrilled given that I viewed some swatches. I liked what i saw and placed an order.

The lipstick is a light neutral beige, It's more peachy than Creme d’Nude and lighter than Peachstock. 
The lipstick is not that appalling. The finish is amplified not the same as the first lipstick released which was luster. This one goes on smoothly and has a nice subtle sheen to it.
I'm an NC30 thus this lipstick can wash out my face, can somehow look like i have concealer on my lips. (not a good look =s)
I expected it to be better, however i would still use it and try to find a way to work it out. 
As for the Lipglass. I wasn't fond of it at all. It doesn't show in pictures but it was too dark for me and I wouldn't use it. I think the reason the lipgloss and lipstick are both somehow unflattering, they have grey tones in them, The lipglass has some shimmer as well which make no difference what so ever.
Both  lipstick and Lipglass have no pink tones.

Lipstick: 7/10
Lipglass: 5/10

Thanks AlReem.. I don't like it!! it's too dark for me. My sister likes it and it does look good on her. If you have a white/fair complexion then it might work for you.
