I found a dupe for MAC Viva Glam Nicki lipstick: Wet n Wild Mega Last Lip Color in #968 Pinkerbell. Pinkerbell is ever so slightly lighter than Nicki, but depending on your natural lip colour, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference anyways. Pinkerbell is the same bright yellow pink as Nicki.
The formula is extremely long-wearing, as the name suggests and very pigmented. One swipe of this lipstick on my lips and I achieve an opaque, even coverage. The formula is semi-matte, therefore, I would suggest exfoliating your lips before your first application, since matte lipsticks tend to accentuate dry, flaky lips. Also, after exfoliation, I would recommend applying a lip balm prior to application of the lipstick to make sure your lips are nice and moisturized and don't dry out upon application. I don't just recommend exfoliating and moisturizing lips for the WnW Mega Last lip colours, I recommend doing this prior to the application of ANY matte/semi-matte lipstick. More than anything, the price is extremely affordable. For such a great quality lipstick for less than $2, you can't go wrong.
Retail Value: $1.99 US
- Slightly drying (avoidable with a balm as a base)
