MAC Cosmetics released the second edition of Viva Glam Gaga on February 17th, 2011. The original Viva Glam Gaga lipstick sold more than any other Viva Glam product and raised millions of dollars for the MAC Aids Fund, so it makes sense that they once again teamed with Lady Gaga for Viva Glam Gaga ii.
This lipstick is a nude color with a very slight coral lean. Depending on your skin tone, it may look pink undertoned or coral undertoned. Below is swatches of Viva Glam Gaga ii compared to many other similar colors. Note that you can click the pictures for a larger view.

Scent wise, the Jordana Matte Nude has a vanilla scent very similar to Gaga, but the Jordana is more subtly scented than Gaga.
Who will love this lipstick?
-Fans of light nudes such as myth, creme d' nude, etc
-People who love mac amplified creme finishes
-Gaga's little monsters
-Pale skin tones because this is actually light enough to be nude for you
Who won't like this lipstick?
-Medium skin tones who dislike the concealer lip look (unless you wear a gloss over it)
-People who don't like vanilla scents
Overall, I like the Viva Glam Gaga ii lipstick better than the other lipsticks because it wears longer and feels the creamiest, although NYX is a great lipstick for a fraction of the price. But keep in mind that all of the money for the Viva Glam lipstick is going to charity. Hopefully these swatches and comparisons helped you out with your decision on whether or not to purchase the lipstick.
