More Goodies in the Mail!

The new Lady Gaga MAC Viva Glam campaign is out, and if you know me, you know that 1) I love Lady Gaga, 2) I love lip gloss, and 3) I love good causes.

Every cent of the cost of the lipstick and lipglass goes to the MAC AIDS fund and I think that's just swell! (Around $18 each in Canada.)


This year, Lady Gaga designed a taupe colour that she claimed on Good Morning America (while wearing an outfit successfully inspired by a condom-wrapped penis) would look good on any skin tone. Well, I just HAD to try it. I bought the pair online, and it was at my door in just a few days!

So while I love, love, love the 'lipglass', the lipstick leaves a little to be desired. A lovely colour indeed, but it is very matte, and even the slightest hint of dry lips makes it look flaky. (Living in Calgary in winter, there is more than a slightest hint of dry lips.) Will try again in the spring.

But all in all, I I'm loving my purchase, and even my boyfriend - not much of a lipstick/lipgloss guy - thinks it looks great on me!

So, next time you're at the MAC counter, pick one up, do some good, and look fabulous!

Update:

MORE goodies in the mail! My latest FCKH8.com order came in, which includes the shirt you see there, a shirt for my man, a sticker that says the same thing as my shirt (proudly on my macbook) and a drool-worthy calendar of greased-up hotties! I'm also wearing the Lady Gaga Viva Glam lipglass)

xoxo!

  3. MAC has great blush too. I get a kick out of wearing 'Orgasm' every day.

  5. There isn't. If you see the post "This Here is a Hate Free Zone", it goes into what I could find in regards to Canadian programs in general for LGBTQ youth.

  6. Nice T-shirt! And lipglass...I may purchase. I LOVE Gaga's 'Born This Way'; it is so going to be the super song at Pride in TO this year. I love it as a theme song for the world. So happy!
