Viva Glam Gaga Lipglass; Viva Glam Cyndi Lipglass $14.50 @ MAC Cosmetics 

Last Thursday I ran to my favorite M.A.C. Counter and picked up the Viva Glam Gaga and Viva Glam Cyndi lipglasses. 

The Viva Glam lipglass shades perfectly compliment their lipstick counterparts. Cyndi is a bright coral red shade, and Gaga is a cool-toned pink.

 I think that Cyndi tends to flatter more skin tones, while Gaga tends to look too blue or even “white” on darker complexions. The lipglasses are pretty opaque with great color pay-off.  I find that I like Cyndi’s gloss more than the lipstick, and Gaga’s lipstick more than the gloss. Check out the swatches below:

I also took time to check out the Fabulous Felines collection…namely the Super Slick Liquid Eyeliner. I’m taking a pass on the vast majority of fabulous felines (I already own Mauvement, Antique Green, and Old Gold pigments).  I love eyeliner, so I couldn’t resist checking out these new formula and the amazing shade spectrum.  I also happen to be very particular about liquid eyeliner…the applicator has to be precise, the formula cannot smear, run, or BUDGE, and of course the color has to be amazing.  The Super Slick Liquid Eyeliner has amazing shades to select from, and I wanted to take some of my favorite shades for a swatch and wear test before purchasing. From what I’m told, these eyeliners will now be apart of the permanent collection, so I felt it was worth testing them before handing over $17.50 for eyeliners I might not love. I tried on three, marked for glamour, signature blue, and smoky heir.  I was surprised by Marked for Glamour–it was described as a mid-tone grey with pearl. It seemed to be both versatile and unique. The shade transforms with the light adding interest…not your average grey liner!  Signature blue was my personal favorite. It reminded me of one of my favorite O.P.I. nail colors: Russian Navy! Smoky Heir was gorgeous as well…I don’t think you can go wrong with this shade!

 The liners apply wet and take a minute to dry completely…once they are dry they don’t budge! They are incredibly water resistant, but come off easily at the end of the day with some warm water or makeup remover…the formula just peels, flakes off with deliberate rubbing. The passed my tests with flying colors, now the hard part is choosing a shade and sticking to it…
