The Dallas Mavericks are in the NBA Finals against the Miami Heat, so I wanted to show some support for my home team and created a look inspired by their team logo. Go Mavs!!!!

I know I already did a post on the Viva Glam Gaga II lipstick and lipglass but I wanted to show what it looked like on me. And I also wanted to show you swatches of other “nude” lipsticks compared to Gaga II.
From the left: MAC-Viva Glam Gaga II; MAC-Fleshpot; MAC-Peachstock; MAC-Myth; NARS-Belle De Jour; NARS-Honolulu Honey; MAC-Creme D’ Nude; Revlon-Soft Nude.
If I had to pick one to be close to the Gaga II shade I would have to pick Creme D’ Nude. They are both creamy and go on very smoothly and the shades are not that much different. Lady Gaga II is a bit more peachy beige. Hope this helps!
I picked up my Lady Gaga II lipstick and lipglass on the 17th. Sorry it took me so long to post about it, but I haven’t been feeling too well. Bu I have to say that I absolutely LOVE these shades!
On the MAC site, the lipstick is described as a light warm beige. Since it is an “Amplified” lipstick the texture is a lot creamier and I find it to be more pigmented. It goes on as a semi-matte finish. Even though it is on the warmer side I think it would still look beautiful on lighter skin tones. I have read other reviews saying that the lipstick is a little unforgiving showing off your lip flaws. I personally don’t think that’s the case. However, if you do find that it shows off your imperfections, use a lip scrub while washing your face and put on a lip treatment while you apply the rest of your face makeup to allow your lips to absorb it. You can also apply a nude lipgloss on top, and a little extra bonus is that it makes your lips look plumper!
The lipglass is described as a light neutral pinked beige. But I don’t find it too have to much of a pink undertone. The finish is very creamy and applies like a dream. Try not to over do it because if you press your lips together it will give you that line around your lips and makes the color look uneven.
If you are not into the “nude” lip but want to try to ease your way into it, I suggest trying out just the lipglass. You won’t be disappointed!
Did you pick these up for your collection? Let me know what you think!
I wanted to do one more look for Valentine’s Day since it is tomorrow. With this look I did a more of a smokey look using gray and black for the eyes and a nude lip. My husband and I went out and celebrated Valentine’s Day Friday night and this is the makeup I wore out to dinner.
