VIVA Glam Gaga 2 is described as "a light, warm beige" and since it's amplified creme, that means the pigmentation is very good, this will show up nice and opaque on your lips, amplified creme is one of my favourite lipstick finishes from MAC. Just make sure you moisturize well, I find I get the ring around my lips with this finish, you'll see that below. I didn't get the lipgloss because it looked even darker and I don't know if I could pull it up, plus more of a lipstick kinda girl anyway.
Upon taking it home, I realized that I had a lipstick very similar to this one, NYX's Circe round lipstick. This lipstick is very opaque too and very, very similar in fact. So if you can't get Viva Glam 2 for some reason, check your collection to see if you have this one instead, it's a popular round lipstick colour. Also, you can pick it up on Cherry Culture or Beauty Joint for very cheap.
As you can tell in the swatch above, MAC's Viva Glam 2 is more beige and NYX's Circle is more orangey, but only slightly. The finish is the same, and they are both just as opaque.
The top picture is MAC's Viva Glam 2 and the bottom is NYX Circe. In pictures they look quite similar right? In person they do too. I would describe MAC's Viva Glam 2 as a dark nude, however it makes me look sickly in real life. It's supposed to be darker than Myth, which I don't own, but perhaps Myth is more concealer lips and this is a darker sick concealer lips? I't's more peach than Creme D'Nude which I love, I like the tone of that one much more. I definitely don't think this shade is for everyone. And if Circe did not work for you, this shade definitely will not worth either.
