So as everyone knows, this is Lady Gaga's second time around to be the spokesperson for MAC AIDS VIVA GLAM. This year's lipstick and lip gloss is a very nudey tanned brown color. As soon as I saw the promotional pictures for this collection, it instantly triggered the thought it looked kinda like ELF's mineral lipstick in natural nymph and ligloss bare brown. The packaging is the same as last years, with lady gaga's autograph on the box and also on the tube.

As you can see, the lady gaga lipgloss is much more opaque and has a creamy look to it while ELf mineral lipgloss is more sheer and a cooler brown color with subtle golden shimmers.

Lady gaga's lipstick is a much more darker compared to the elf lipstick which as a more pinky undertone.

The MAC lipstick is super creamy and super pigmented, much worth the money. I'd buy it again in a heartbeat =). The lipgloss is the same quality, very pigmented and creamy but i wouldn't wear them together because i'd look like a dying zombie XD.
