MAC Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipstick and Lipglass Swatches

Hey Guys!

I received the MAC Viva Glam Gaga 2 Lipstick and Lipglass in the mail Friday and had to do a post ASAP on swatches as I know some of you may be curious as to what the new Gaga lipstick/lipglass looks like and are thinking of picking them up. Gaga 2 Lipstick is described as a light, neutral beige with an amplified formula. Amplified lipsticks by MAC tend to be very pigmented and cremey. This lipstick is no exception. The only thing I don't like about this colour and formula is that it accentuates any dryness/flakyness in your lips so you MUST exfoliate or apply a moisturizing lip balm prior to application. Gaga 2 Lipglass is a cream formula and feels amazing on the lips. It is described by MAC as a light, sandy neutral (with a micro fine shimmer). I find this is the perfect nude lip combo for my NC25 skin.

I forgot to take a picture of just the lipglass. I will post a picture of what the lipglass looks like on my lips later this weekend.

I swatched some of my MAC lipsticks which I thought were similar, in one way or another, to the Gaga 2 Lipstick. If you have one or more of the lipsticks I have, you can see the difference in colour from Gaga 2 to the one which you own. I found that NYX Circe was a near dupe to Gaga 2 (just a tad darker).

Will you be purchasing the new Gaga Lipstick or Lipglass?


  1. U should try nyx tea lipstick reminds me of these :)

  2. I will totally be purchasing this New Lipstick. Great swatches I am sold lol

  3. Not now because I live in Europe T.T
    You're so lucky *__* The lipglass is amazing!

    Bisous :)

  4. IMHO, MAC needs to come up with more original colors. I would purchase these, but only because the proceeds go to charity. If these were part of the permanent line, I wouldn't look twice at them. I'd just get Circe.

  5. The color looks gorgeous on you, and you have an amazing collection of nude lippies!Can you plz post a lip swatch of Mac Peachstock, I really like it and would like to see how it actually looks on the lips.

  9. Looks beautiful on you!! By your swatches, it looks similar to peachstock? I probably wont be getting it though... Havent bought anything LE since Style Black LOL

  10. I love this. I love nudes lipsticks and can't wait to add this to my collection.

  11. I love how Viva Glam Gaga 2 looks on your lips! I'm so goin to purchase both the lipstick and the lipglass when I get paid.

  12. i picked up both the lipstick and lipgloss this weekend. I love it and can work it! In my opinion this is a lot better then Myth, which completely flushed me out, ugh!

  13. I have the earlier Gaga edition, it was the pink one? I think this was part of the Viva Glam collection
    I'm not sure if nude would suit my darker tan skin and eyes
    but it looks lovely on you!
