So everyone loves a good Christmas gift set & MAC's Holiday Viva Glam Collection is no exception!
To start with the packaging is absolutely adorable and is perfect for a small make-up bag or small day-to-day purse, then, included in this gift set is the Viva Glam Nicki Minaj Lipstick and the Viva Glam Ricky Martin Lip Conditioner.
I was a bit scared by how bright this lipstick looked in the bullet, but on the lips it is a very wearable yellow toned pink. The longevity of this lipstick is really good and after eating I still had a good colour on my lips, although, I think this is due to the somewhat dryer texture of the lipstick, described as "Satin Finish" this lipstick will stick to dryer lips, but this is where the Ricky Martin Lip Conditioner comes in, right?
In a perfect sized tube this conditioner has a thicker consistency than your average gloss, and you only need a tiny amount to cover the lips. Worn on its own this has the look of a clear lip gloss and the effect of a lip balm, which I think is needed through the winter months! Although I have not tried this conditioner under any other lipstick, this Viva Glam Duo work really well together as the conditioner really loosens up the lipstick giving it a more creamy finish.
I absolutely love this set and I think I feel even better knowing that 100% of the RRP goes towards the MAC Aids Fund, which is definitely a justified reason for adding these two products to your collection!
