I've been very excited to check out MAC's Archie's Girls collection, ever since I first heard about it way back in July last year (2012) - because I was a major Archie comic book fan. & i'm very pleased with the collection, especially the lipsticks, Betty's colors are more flirty & girly (Daddy/s Little Girl being my fave out of the whole collection) & Veronica's are more on the darker vamp side. Check it out, they're selling fast, of course.

MAC Viva Glam Nicki 2 Lipstick ($15.00 for 0.10 oz.) is described as a “pastel lavender pink” with an Amplified finish. It’s a cool-toned, lavender pink with a creamy finish and natural sheen.  Viva Glam is by far one of my favorite charitable beauty causes, because it really does give back–the full selling price of the lipstick. It’s not just a gimmick where they give some unknown “portion of proceeds” or a dismal 5%.  Viva Glam Nicki 2 is fully opaque and has good slip and glide. It didn’t pull or tug at the lips while I applied the color from the tube. It's not a color that will appeal to everyone, but for those who like their really cool-toned pinks with lavender undercurrents, it's going to be a fun shade to play around with.
