When you buy a MAC Viva Glam Lipstick, the money goes to the MAC Aids Fund. A recent statement by MAC:
"M·A·C Cosmetics is going to make twice the impact this year on World AIDS Day. On Saturday, December 1 M·A·C Cosmetics will match all VIVA GLAM product sales on any of the MACcosmetics.com ecommerce sites for a double donation. Typically one VIVA GLAM purchase can buy five meals for a person living with HIV but with M·A·C Cosmetics’ donation match on World AIDS Day a VIVA GLAM lipstick purchased online can buy 10 meals.
M·A·C’s commitment to the fight against HIV/AIDS occurs 365 days a year through the sales of our VIVA GLAM products, 100 percent of the sales price of VIVA GLAM products goes directly to the M·A·C AIDS Fund. This year on World AIDS Day, M·A·C is going to make an even bigger impact by matching all sales of VIVA GLAM products purchased on maccosmetics.com and giving twice the money to the M·A·C AIDS Fund.,”
Shade ~ Viva Glam Nicki Minaj Lipstick is a bright yellow pink. It's very bright pink with a coral tinge. Compared to MAC Chatterbox, it is warmer & leans more towards a coral-pink. It is also lighter than MAC Impassioned.
Finish ~ Satin. This finish is just slightly more creamy than a matte finish.

I like that it applies opaque, and it doesn't wear off quickly. When dabbed lightly or blotted, the color is similar to cotton candy. It's a type of color that needs to be accompanied by a lot of makeup on the rest of my face- smoky eyes, blush in a similar color & flawless foundation - otherwise it'll just make me look sick. It's not a shade I'd repurchase, but it's no doubt a very unique pink, and I'm glad I got to try it out.
Price ~ £14.00 (Rs.1210). It will be cheaper in India.
My Rating ~ ♥♥♥♥♥ 4/5
Availability ~ It is now available in India, I think.
