Love the colour on the tube and on other people, but I don't think I've worn this lipstick with the right look yet. (Dreary winters, yuck. I think it'll work better in the summer seasons.) It's a bright pink and on my olive/tan skin, it really stands out on my lips alone, so you need some makeup to balance it out. I wouldn't buy it again because I probably won't be using this one lots, but I don't regret buying it.
I love this lipstick. Its very creamy but sheer because it is a luster. I love the packaging with the Lady Gaga signature<3 her. I mean this color is pretty dupable because it's just a bright pink. However, the blue undertones in this lipstick make it unique and very beautiful. I love the smell of MAC lipsticks because they smell like vanilla. Idk if they still sell this but I would definitely reccommend going out and getting this if they do. continued >>
Perfect pink for the lips! I am NC25 and i thought such a color would wash me out (it did....at the beginning), after a few trials I finally saw it's working for me and it looks hot on the lips! My only complaint is that it's not moisturizing and not long-wearing enough.
One of my favourite pink lipsticks, designed by one of my favourite artists, and keep in mind it has a blue undertone, much like Pink Nouveau. The lipstick features Gaga's autograph around the inner case, which looks great for fans alike. This color is great and all profits goes to a great cause. However it is a little drying, so exfoliate and moisturize prior!
I love blue based pinks. It's gorgeous and can be layered on for more pigment. I like NYX Strawberry Milk and Pink Friday more though when I want a pigmented blue pink. Gaga is a sheer version of them. It looks very pretty paired with lilac toned gloss.
This is a very blue-based bubblegum pink. It is very pigmented for a Luster finish. Because of the strong blue undertones it is definitely a statement lip. If this is too much for some people, I recommend patting the color on or using your fingers to create more a stain to lessen the impact. Also adding a yellow-based or peachy lipgloss on top will help make this color more wearable.
I previous reviewer compared this to Too Faced Free Love, which I also own. To me these lipsticks are completely different. Free Love is more beige-based while Gaga is more blue-based. On the lip and swatched the colors are completely different.
More similar colors include MAC St. Germain, Rimmel Pink Blush, Rimmel Moisture Pink Chic, YSL Rouge Pur 146, YSL Rouge Volupte 7.
Gaga is a nice lipstick but it is also very dupable. However, since the full purchase price goes to charity it is a worthwhile, feel-good purchase.
I bought this lipstick because I am in love with Too Faced Free Love. I am a big fan of the pale pink and its hard to find. I thought the price was good for a MAC limited edition item. I love the color on my skin tone, but I did have to reapply often. I figured the color would be a bit more pigmented and last a bit longer on my lips.
Viva Glam Gaga is a Limited Edition shade that was released in February 2010 as a part of the From Our Lips Collection (along with Viva Glam Cyndi). This is described as a light blue pink and is a lustre formula. It is a very pretty creamy pink and I find it to be flattering on my NC20 skin. However like a lot of other lustre formula lipsticks from MAC this dries my lips out badly. Even if I exfoliate and moisturize before applying this it makes my lips look very dry after having it on for just a few short minutes. This is very unfortunate because I really like the color. I kind of feel like what I wanted out of this lipstick I get from Pink Friday. The staying power isn't that bad but I always take it off before I get the wear out of it because it looks yucky.
Similar shades include NYX Strawberry Milk and Narcissus, YSL No7 Rouge Volupte, and Rimmel Pink Blush.
I absolutely LOVE this lipstick...I haven't worn it much since I want to conserve it, and I need to find a good lip primer so that it doesn't come off so quickly. The smell is fabulous and the colour looks amazing. I think it's a great buy, if you think $14 is too much for it, just remember that all of the proceeds are for MAC's AIDS fund. I'm a huge lady gaga fan so I had to have this when it came out, I was surprised how fantastic it looks. Since it's luster, I only wear it when I'm going out at night, and I enjoy the fact that it's not an overbearing colour but still stands out.
i would not buy this again because i thought the color pay off wasnt great! since its a luster,its not very pigmented. i felt that i would like it better if it was an amplifer.
