MAC Viva Glam Nicki Minaj Lipstick & Ricky Martin Lip Conditioner- Photos, Swatches

MAC Viva Glam’s newest spokespeople include Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin, and both have a new product to add to the Viva Glam Family. We Have Nicki, a yellow-pink satin lipstick, and MAC’s signature clear Lip Conditioner, complete with Ricky Martin’s Signature. Read on for product photos and swatches!




Viva Glam Nicki is a bright, opaque pink shade that I love! It goes on smooth and lasts for hours. MAC’s lip conditioner is also a great product, but this version isn’t any different from their regular one other than the fact that it has Ricky Martin’s signature, and all the proceeds go towards the Viva Glam Aids fund (so if you need a new lip conditioner, might as well get this one!) I always make sure to get the new Viva Glam products because the colors are generally universally flattering, and 100% of the selling price goes to the MAC Aids fund (which is VERY rare, most companies only donate a portion of proceeds when they have a charity product, and it’s usually a pretty low percentage). I’m not sure if Viva Glam Nicki will be for everyone, as it is on the brighter side, but It’s definitely right up my alley!

Available for $14 each from MAC Cosmetics this February.

    Viva Glam Nicki looks absolutely fantastic! Not sure if i can pull off the colour though, it’s so bright.

  2. Delilah says

  3. Emma says

    soooooooooooo essaited for nickiiii. love herrrrr

  4. Liz says

    As much as I dislike Nicki Minaj, I just bought the OPI Pink Friday nail polish today, and that lipstick is calling to me. Just depends on what it looks like on.

    I really hope it’s available now b/c it would be perfect for the Valentines Run (walk) I’m doing next week!

  5. Beauty and the Scientist says

    VG Niki maybe a bit too much for me to pull off but I’ll still get it since it’s going to a worthy cause :) It looks great on you though :)

  6. Stephanie says

    Love that pink. I love light, bright pinks that aren’t frosty. I hate when I buy a pretty light pink lipstick and it ends up being frosty yuck!

  7. Nibeya says

    I love her, so happy i got the 1st lip stick, i dont think i like this one, but for 2 reasons and 2 reasons only, 100% go to a great cause and of course its Nicki, yeah!!

  8. Dawn says

    Doesn’t hurt to try… seems to bright for my skin match but we will see… I love more of the frost colors, they are amazing…. only time and shopping will tell

  9. Lisa says

    How similar would you say this is to Viva Gaga I? It looks the same on my computer screen but I know that monitor settings can alter shades a bit.

    1. Kenleigh says

      They are very very different. Gaga is much more of a blue pink and is quite a deal lighter. Not alike at all actually.

  10. Latoya says

    I’ve been sitting on the coupon code to buy this lipstick for days waiting until someone did a review/swatch it. I just finish placing my order thanks Leesha.

  11. mouse says

    definitely going to pick up the lip conditioner. i LOVE that 100 percent of the proceeds go to the foundation; that’s super rare.

  12. Sara says

    i have a question i’ve been meaning to ask you but i didn’t want you to take the wrong way. i hope you don’t find me rude. it’s just i’m really curious about one thing. what do you actually do for a living? i’m not interested at all on how much you earn or anything. i just want to know if the publicity you get from “xsparkage” is enough to make a living or you work as a freelance mua or if you work as a mua in any company or such or even if you have another job that has nothing to do with makeup at all. thanks!

    1. leesha says

      I’m actually very lucky in the fact that xSparkage youtube and blog is enough to make a living at the moment :)

  13. Marta says

    The Nicki Minaj one is such an unique colour I need it for summer! x

  14. Nicole says

    i really love the nicki minaj lipstick, so pretty!

  15. Mary says

    “When did this collection come out?”

    Official date is February 15!

  16. Candi says

    I want the Nikki lipstick! It looks amazing!!

  17. Anne says

    The first and most important question that rises to my head is what these products are tested on?? Are they tested on animals or cruelty-free? I use The Body Shop’s wonderful cosmetics, and I love the Hi Shine Lip Conditioner that I have, it’s light enough since I always wear black eyeliner in my eyes.
    That MAC lip gloss is way too bright for me, though the shade is otherwise ok…

    1. Rebecca says

      They do not test on animals! That is what makes them so wonderful ! Great photos by the way!

      1. Anne says

        Thanx :-) Have to check if those products end up on sale here in Finland, just out of curiosity…

  18. diane mary says

    i love that nicki color and love even more the whole 100% goes to help aids! i’m picking it up for sure!!

  19. Karla says

    WoW … it looks pretty pink … I will try it asap … hehehe.

  20. Kitty says

    This lipstick is totally my color.

  21. Paige says

    Will the lipstick be coming out with the same color lipglass like all of the gaga ones? I’m 13 and love this color… but lipstick isnt excactly my thing unless i am staining my lips with it!

  22. quinny says

    I just ordered it can’t wait for it to come :D love nicki woot

  23. Annie says

    I already ordered mine off of I haven’t got it yet along with my other stuff-Blonde MSF and Purring Tendertone. Did you know that you can’t buy either of these on mac’s website? But you can get blonde and redhead MSF and all the other tendertones except for the red one on Wow, there I go on another tangit.

  24. Tuckyoumac says

    Racist mac,no signature on my lipstick!

  25. Nicole says

    Wow,I was wondering how the pigment in the Viva Glam looked,I actually like it.

  27. Jung Delbalso says

    Just wondering if you will find any blogging websites exactly where I can start a blog that aren’t too known.. We are already aware of sites like blogger, wordpress, livejournal, xanga, vox, etc … Are there any up and coming blogging websites perhaps?.

  28. hijab indonesia says

    my blog page is a hyperlink on my web homepage and I would really prefer it to exhibit the posts from the blog page? Any ideas?

    Paragraph writing is also a fun, if you know after that you can write otherwise it is complicated to write.
