If you don't know about MAC's Viva Glam collection, they are basically a range in which 100% of the profits go to MAC's Aids Fund. Every year they release a limited edition version designed by celebrities, and in Feb. 2010, there was Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper. In August, they released the lipglosses.
I got the Cyndi lipglass because I don't own a MAC lipglass and I thought, if I was going to get one I should get a colour I don't have and super plus if the profits go to charity.
I've tried MAC lipglasses before, and I found them to be incredibly sticky, but bearably so (I know some would disagree!). This one, I feel is hardly sticky. I feel like it's about average, but the staying power is insane. The pigmentation is insane. It feels like a liquid lipstick more than anything.
The colour is a bit darker than what you see above, it's what I can only describe as a milky red, which is a wee bit on the warmer side. It has literally micro-micro shimmer, so micro that it's pretty much matte. And for me (NC30-35), it's an incredibly wearable red. In fact, it's the only red I've felt comfortable in, and it makes me want to..
Would definitely recommend giving this Lipglass a chance, even if you aren't a fan of MAC's Lipglasses as I'm feeling pretty confident the formula is very different. It's also gone after February 2011, so go go go! :)
