MAC Viva Glam Nicki and Watch Me Simmer

I seem to be buying quite a few lipsticks lately even though I'm too scared to wear them outside! I will wear them soon though, I don't want to have wasted my money!

So my latest purchases are these limited edition MAC lipsticks:

Top: MAC Viva Glam Nicki, Bottom: Shop MAC Watch Me Simmer

Watch Me Simmer is from the latest collection called Shop MAC. I really like the outer sleeve on this lipstick, it's nice and bright and as I tend to keep the boxes I will be able to spot this one easily!

On the MAC website this lipstick is described as a bright pink-orange which I'd agree with. This is an amplified formula so it smoothes onto the lips really easily. I really like this lipstick as I normally go for pink colours on the lips but I've been branching out to corals/oranges lately.

The Viva Glam Nicki lipstick was launched this month and I've been eyeing this up for a while after seeing it appear on blogs. It's described as a bright yellow pink on the MAC website which I guess is correct. I don't exactly see yellow in it but it's not a really warm or cool pink so I guess it must be yellow haha.

I like it as I think it's quite different and will look great on lots of skin tones. This one is a satin finish and feels slightly more drying on the lips compared to Watch Me Simmer but with a slick of lip balm/gloss it will be fine.
