Absolutely gorgeous. I'm pretty tan, and wearing this to its full building potential makes me look like an alien. However, one sheer swipe of this on my lips and I look like twiggy from the 60s. I'm obsessed with nude lips as some girls would die for that perfect red shade. I've tried tons of nudes and this just has a wonderful formulation that would work for any skin color.And by goodness do I love my Gaga

Opaque, creamy, flattering nude that lasts four about five hours on my lips: +5
The scent is to die for: +1
Why is it limited edition?!: -1
I love, love, love this lipstick. It is hands down my favorite nude (well, at the moment~)
I haven't used a lot of MAC lip products, or any MAC products, really, but this one drew me in with its advertising and unique-yet-classy packaging. I bought it on a whim with no feelings of guilt because 100% of the proceeds go to the MAC AIDS Fund.
I brought it home and first, I LOVE the smell of MAC lipsticks - that vanilla scent that is neither overpowering or weird. I applied it and was startled because literally one swipe completely saturated my lips with color. My favorite pairing is to put a coral lip gloss over it (I use Liplicious in Mango Mousse from B+BW) and it gives my lips the most perfect nude glow.
My only gripe is WHY on God's good Earth is this limited edition?! Makes me feel like I need to buy 10 backups.. which I probably will..
I cannot overstate how much I love this color.

I love this so much that I purchased a back up a couple of days later. MAC describes it as a "light neutral beige" which is quite accurate.
This looks great with smoky eyes or colourful eyeshadows. I sometimes pair it with MAC Spring Bean.

Initially I was thinking to get Hue lipstick today but it was unavailable at my local store. End up I got Viva Glam Gaga 2 which I have never thought that I would purchase this lipcolor (i thought it would be concealer-like lipcolor). But the color appeared to be a nice nude color when i swatched it on my hand and I decided to give it a try. I am so glad that I picked up this color coz its really a lovely nude color and doesn't wash me off. Loving it....^^

Hardcore Tan/Beige Lipstick with a Matte Finish. Looks really cute with Palladio Walnut lipliner and A little of Gaga2 Lipglass. I just kind of dab this on,

I have to admit it was a big risk buying this the day it launched in my country without any tester available...but did my gamble pay off big time! I was afraid that this would give me concealer lips as I'm a C3/NC 30 when it comes to MAC foundation. But this lippy finished off with the matching lipglass gave me the most flattering, true beige nude lips I've ever seen! The formulation is a little sheer but very creamy and buildable. Do a smoky eye with this lippy and you're good to go!

GREAT nude lipstick for everyday wear. I love that I don't have to think to much when wearing this, very easy, and great for any occasion. Glides on smooth. I top it with a lip gloss as I do most my lipsticks. Right now I'm loving it with MAC Plushglass in Bubble Tea. So far my favorite nude color along with Myth. The money goes to a great cause which made this purchase sooo worth it!

I like this shade, but not as much as I did before I tried Velvet Teddy. This shade is my go to nude if I want to look like Snooki :P. I really love that this is for a great cause, even though I hate Lady GaGa! :[ Anyways, this color looks pretty on my NC42 skin, a tad light but I make it work with lipgloss and liner. The formula is excellent in my opinion, it goes on like gloss but gives great coverage like mattes. I already purchased a backup! ;))

I'm so glad I bought this lipstick. It is my absolute favorite! It doesn't make my lips look pale at all. It suits me very well and for some reason it makes my lip look like a light pink. I also love the finish of it. Very creamy and perfect for me! Would definitely buy it again!

When i heard it was an amplified nude, I simply had to buy it. AND the money goes to a good cause. The formula is different from my blankety and half n half which are both permanent amplifieds. Gaga 2 lipstick's formula is a sheer like creamsheens and feels creamy on the lips like an amplified. I have dark pigmented lips, and need to line my lips for the colour to truly show. Somehow, this product accentuates the flaws on my lips. It's like.. it finds the flaws on my lips and amplifies them. It's a dupable shade using creme d nude and freckletone.

Okay, I'm starting to look like quite the MAC addict with all my reviews... which isn't really the case... though yeah, they do make quite a few things I'm very fond of. :) One thing I LOVE about MAC is their lipsticks. All of mine, except for one, are from MAC. The one that isn't is from an Italian brand called Kiko. Anyway- Viva Glam Gaga II is spectacular. I HATED the first one, and I don't know anyone personally who can wear it. I couldn't. Her second one is lovely. I entered my local MAC store to buy my blush (Peaches) and then decided I wanted a nude lipstick. The girl tried a few on me, including Hue (too sheer) and Blankety (too grey). Finally she grabbed the new Gaga, which I was skeptical about just going off the promo posters. But- and this was a good point- she said that Gaga and I have similar skin tones, which now that I think about it, we do. Surprise- hello, new favorite lipstick! Since I prefer "peachier" nudes, I pair it with Subculture lip liner or wear it under Love Nectar. (I have mentioned this in several other reviews, but I am NC15 with auburn/copper hair.)

I just bought this yesterday and I've never been so in love with a lipstick before. I have a big problem with dry lips, and most of the time I avoid wearing anything but a moisturizer on them because glosses and lipsticks usually just wind up enhancing all their flaws. But this lipstick goes on so smoothly and provides a nice, even coating that seems to conceal dead skin and other unpleasantness. Paired with the lipglass, it looks incredible. It's the first nude that's ever looked the way I want it to, as well. My lips are really highly pigmented so most nudes never quite looked right. I should stop being so surprised whenever MAC provides such a great product. I've never been disappointed with a purchase.

I usually love all my makeup, and I try not to return anything at all. This was the first ever makeup product in my whole entire life that I returned, not because its faulty or anything, simply because it was horrible on me.
I am NC30 in skintone, and I find this colour was way too nude for me, I've got Creme D' Nude which is a nude from MAC that I hate as well, but I've kept that because that was a good base coat from my other vibrant red and plum lip colours. This the reason why I returned it was it didn't work for me, and had a strong pink undertone which would not work well as an undercoat because it would change the colour of anything else I put on top of it.
It's a shame, because I love the original GAGA a lot!

I didn't like this at first and almost returned it. But then I learned how it works best for me. Lip liner is a must and a soft pink gloss makes this a perfect nude for my NC20-25 skin. NYX Rea is very similar and much cheaper tho.

I bought this knowing that if I applied this with a fullcoated swipe, this would be perfect concealer lip.
That being said, since I knew what I was going into, this was a way better method of muting out my lips compared to all the other lipsticks. Siss was green on me, Myth was peachy, Creme d'nude is cooltoned, Peachstock & Shy Girl were flat out peach.
This suited my NC20-25 skin perfectly, and if I use it alone, I will sheer it out for a nude lip.
Most of the time, I put ample pink plushglass on top for a nude look and I do love it.
It's for a good cause anyway, and this is one of my favourite nudes and I'm sad it's limited (albeit for a year!)

I know that a lot of people compare this to concealer and I can totally see how someone would think that. If applied somewhat heavily like a regular lipstick, you will probably look like a freak. HOWEVER, if applied very lightly and then spread with a lip brush, it can be a subtle beautiful nude. This probably won't work on all skintones, either. I'm NC20-NC25ish and it works for me.

I've heard that this is another color by mac that is hard to pull off and doesn't suit many people. Once again, it suits me well (nw20 skintone). This color takes quite a bit of work to pull off. To get it to look nice I have to use a heavy duty lip balm (liberal application of korres lip butter for example) and a nudey pink lipliner all over my lips. No balm = settles into lines and accentuates flakes and cracks. No lipliner = fading from the inner portion of the lips. But if you put the work into it, this is a lovely nude color.

I bought this because I noticed that it doesn't have as many pink tones as most nude lipsticks do, which is great for those who lean more towards the 'warm' side of the spectrum. It also isn't as drying as most nudes I've tried so far by MAC. When I applied it though, I was surprised at how much lighter it looks than in the tube - and I have quite pigmented lips! This was quite disappointing as the promo pic with Lady Gaga made it look darker, a bit like Honeylove. I still like it though, especially with Stripdown worn under it.

This is my absolute favorite nude. Looks amazing on my skintone. I plan on buying a second lipstick before its sold out. I don't think it would suit very dark or pale skintones so I could see why it has mixed reviews. It's perfect for my Italian skin.
