MAC Viva Glam Gaga II

Want your first glance of the new MAC Vivia Glam II Lipstick and Lipglass?

Jump ahead for more!

Launching February 17th Gaga’s new shade is again a more nude look but this time in beige! Her last shade was a nude, mod pink which I could not pull off for the life of me however her latest shade is a nude beige which I’m wondering if I can work. I sure hope so because the promo image of her wearing it really rocks.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Was hoping for something more fun and bright….but you put Gaga’s name on it, and I’m SO there!

    • the Muse

      lol stacie! I’d prob look like death too but it looks good on her I do wonder..!

    • Nunuiviet

      Right with you I feel like when I apply nude I look completely washed out! 🙂

  • Cj

    Yay! I’m definitely gonna check out the lipglass as soon as I can lol, I’ve been really wanting to try out a nude lip color for a while now, I just hope I can pull this off lol

  • Gina (Prim and Polished)

    I am still wondering why they got rid of the amazing VG Cyndi? That color was perfection.

    This one is better than the original but might be too brown.

    I hate Gaga. I think I am the only one on Earth.

    • Kristina

      You are not the only one who doesn’t like Gaga! I do think she’s a talented artist but all her media whoring is overkill.

      • Gina (Prim and Polished)

        I agree. She’s got a voice. Especially on the unreleased singles. But her image is just too much for me!

    • Brittany

      Gina, you’re not the only one! Haha, she’s definitely the epitome of a pop star, but honestly I don’t personally go for her often dark/morbid/blank demeanor she like to play out :creepy: Nonetheless, I look forward to this lipstick because her first SO did not go with me and loved Cyndi much more 🙂 Hopefully this nude/ beige won’t be too stark and chalky and will look like the one in the ad 🙂

    • Nunuiviet

      Maybe because the name cindy lauper doesn’t sell anymore?
      Anyway i’ m not impressed with this lady gaga nude, Mac creme d’nude already exist, just because it’s written lady gaga and is limited edition won’t make me buy that stuff!

  • Phyrra

    Hm, I might try it. I recently picked up MAC Shy Girl and LOVE it for a natural look on me.

  • Andrea

    I really hope this nude works out! I love Gaga, but that wasn’t enough to justify buying a shade that looked horrible on me last time. Can’t wait for the 17th!

  • Stephanie L.

    I think that I will try out the lipglass, but probably will look like I have the plague. It is very lovely on her.

  • MC

    I’ll skip. I like Lady Gaga, but her Viva Glam colors make me look like a corpse. 🙁 I hope there is a possible Viva Glam Cyndi II (SOOOO much love for Viva Glam Cyndi.)

  • Misato-san

    her “first try” didn’t catch my attention at all. Too pink, and I’m a pink lover when comes to lipsticks (I didn’t considered the glosses).
    So I got the Cindy one because I liked it, despite the fact I’m not a lustre lipstick girls at all (I prefer bold ones I guess… if not mat, at least something frost like Costa Chic, I love that shade!)

    but this one… I’m really interested in it, maybe it can work for me 😀

  • Jen

    I’m *interested* in the lipstick but I need to see some comparison swatches or something.

  • Marilyn @ Lipgloss and Spandex

    Absolutely, I’ll buy it! I hope it’s kind of like 2N, which I love…

  • jackieg02

    While I was at the MAC counter today the SA showed me these and I instantly fell in love.

  • LipstickChick

    Does anyone know what the finish of the lipstick is (Frost, Lustre, etc)?

    Apologies if I missed it already!

  • Girl Hearts Makeup

    Oh my gosh, SO excited!

    By the way, Muse, what would you recommend to someone with very dry skin looking to cover a huge area of redness on the face, something like rosacea. What type of concealer would you recommend for me?

    I want something to totally cover it and if possible, I do not have to wear foundation over it as I tend to breakout easily cos I have sensitive skin.


  • Miros

    I LOVE this color!! I can’t wait to get my hands on it!!! the bad news is that I live in Mexico and it usually takes about a month more than in the US to get the products 🙁 and when they get here they inmediately sold out 🙁 I hope I can get this one!

  • Liane

    Okay, I admit, I seriously considered buying the first lipstick, the light pink, even though I knew for a fact that it looked terrible on me. I opted instead for the gloss version, which turned about to be a great purchase, as it looks great layered over a lot of my darker lipsticks.
    This one, however, really appeals to me on its own. I just hope it’s not as light as the pink one, because I’m super fair and if it washed me out I wonder who it works for.
