Okay, I so bought this about two or three weeks ago and I'm ridiculously late with this post... eek! Sorry!
In the last year, I have become such a huge fan of nudes. If I remember correctly, in one of my very early posts, I said that I couldn't wear nudie colors like Myth. And now, I LOVE nudie colors like Myth! It's not always about what
you wear. Rather, it's about how
you wear it. If I lathered on Myth without thinking twice, I would look like a ghastly little freakazoid. I've seen so many negative reviews of VG Gaga II and I couldn't understand why... but then I remembered that I was once that girl who thought that I could never pull off a nude. Why? Because for many of us, they're scary. Just as scary and intimidating as red may seem.
Another reason (remember, these are just my theories) why I think VG Gaga II didn't sell out like the first one did is because the first one is such a bold, statement color. It's a spotlight-loving pink that people were instantly attracted to (very Gaga-esque), whereas, this nude looks downplayed in comparison. I think people (like me) were expecting the second coming of a crazy, bold lipstick. In my opinion, though, nudes can make the same kind of statement as that flashy pink.
I love this color. I need to do some swatch comparisons for you guys because I think I have a few similar shades. I like the formula (Amplified) and I didn't find it to be overly-drying. The best part? Every cent goes to the MAC AIDS Fund. Can't beat that!
Have you tried it? Tell me honestly, do you love it or hate it? From what I gather, it's that kind of color. Love it or hate it, that is.
