When I saw an ad for the new Viva Glam lipstick from MAC, I had to have it. A lovely light purple for spring! Being a bit of a lipstick addict, I ordered two more while I was at it (I order online since that gives me access to all of their products). I'd been wanting to order Saint Germain since I saw it on someone in a magazine, and I decided to try something different and get one of their Sheen Supreme lipsticks. Who could resist a name like Insanely It?
Surprisingly, the Sheen Supreme was my favorite color, then the Saint Germain, and last the Viva Glam Nicki 2. Keep in mind that the skin on your hand is not the same color as your lips. Colors that are bright on pale skin won't be as bright on your lips, especially if your lips are highly pigmented. The Viva Glam is more sheer than I thought it would be, so it will take a few layers for the color to look like it does in the tube. Overall, though, I was happy with all three. They're nice, bright colors that will be great for spring, if it ever comes to my part of the country. We're still waiting...

Are any of you buying bright colors for new spring make up?
**I do receive a discount on MAC cosmetics, but I have been a fan of their cosmetics for many years before I received a discount. It truly doesn't affect my opinion of their products.
