It is a bright clean barbie pink that is in the Satin formula. I like this better than its cousin, Viva Glam Gaga, because the latter is quite sheer and cooler and paler.

Layered Nico Now and Live & Dye lipglasses over Pink 4 Friday

Pink 4 Friday is honestly not my most favorite shade of pink in the world, but I like that it is workable on my skin. This is easier to work with compared to Viva Glam Gaga. Similar to the last picture, I can layer warmer shades of lipglass over it to change the effect. I like the satin formula because it gives a very pigmented shade on the lips and staying power is longer compared to lustre finishes.

The Shades Of U Rating: 4.0 out of 5 stars

Don't forget that this limited edition lipstick is only available online at the MAC website, for four consecutive Fridays starting November 26, 2010.

Pssst! Don't tell but even this pinkaholic winces at this one. You give it hope with layering. That singer must be the Lady Gaga of Trinidad!

When I read other reviews I was really discouraged about getting this lipstick. U have changed my mind, I'm going to go for it. What color foundation do u use, because it seems to work with ur complexion. I'm a nc50, would u recommend that color for my complexion?
