(yeah late review again haha) I was a big fan of Lady Gaga, she empowers women strength and confidence through her groovy songs, outrageous outfits and spectacular stage performances. She's definitely an icon that everyone knows; even a little child knows at least one of her songs :)
As you may know, MAC has an AIDS campaign and 100% of the proceeds of each and everyone of the Viva Glam lipsticks go to the MAC AIDS fund. I'm so happy that Lady Gaga partnered with MAC in this kind of project. Aside from Lady Gaga, we can also see the participation from Fergie and Cyndi Lauper and they also launched their own Viva Glam Lipsticks. During the summer 2010 (I think) Viva Glam Cyndi and Viva Glam Gaga were launched with lipglosses. Now, MAC launched the Viva Glam Gaga 2, a nude color with a matching lipgloss too.
It has a red signature of Lady Gaga at the outside portion of the box as well as at the lipstick tube which is kinda cool. The lipstick tube is just the same shape as the MAC regular lipsticks.
The Viva Glam Gaga is sort of a bubblegum pink lipstick with a sheen. It's a lustre finish so it has a soft and light pigmentation. Because it's sheer, it takes quite a lot in building up the color. It has that shiny finish that lustre lipsticks usually have. It's pink.. a Gaga pink.. and a suitable makeup look should be worn in order for this lipstick to become wearable. A piece costs $14.50.

All in all, I enjoyed using this product and the best part, you contribute to the MAC AIDS campaign. :)
