MAC Viva Glam Gaga 2 (swatches)

I'm gaga over Gaga 2 lipstick and lipglass(okay, that sounded cheesy!)

I assume by now the whole world knows that if you purchase a Viva Glam product, 100% of your money goes to the MAC AIDS fund.

Viva Glam Gaga 2 lipstick and lipglass.
> $14.50 in US ans 17.50 in Canada
> Viva Glam gaga 2 lipstick- light warm beige and has an amplified finish
> Viva Glam gaga 2 lipglass- light pink beige
> Same packaging with the first Viva Glam Gaga- with the red MAC logo and Lady Gaga's signature

Hand swatches:
Viva Glam Gaga 2 lipglass on the left- the lipglass looks browner and darker on the tube and when swatched, but take a look at my lip swatch below and you'll see what I'm talking about.
Viva Glam Gaga 2 lipstick on the right- I would say that this lipstick isn't all that brown when applied on the lips and it is very a flattering pinky/beige. No concealer lips here. The amplified finish of the lipstick is definitely a plus for me. Lip swatches:
> Take note that I have pigmented lips. The lipstick and lipglass may appear differently if you do not have pigmented lips.
Viva Glam Gaga 2 lipstick:
Viva Glam Gaga 2 lipglass on top of the lipstick:
I have swatches of what I thought would be a close dupe for the Gaga 2 lipstick, but I don't think I have a dead ringer in my lipstick stash.
So from left to right(All MAC): Gaga 2, Peachstock, Creme D' Nude, Myth, and the bottom one is Hue.
As you can see nothing is similar with the Gaga 2 lipstick, but I think MAC Peachstock is the closest I have.
Here's Peachstock and Viva Glam Gaga 2 side by side.
and the swatch...
Gaga 2 on the left and Peachstock on the right.
> Viva Glam Gaga 2 is definitely creamier and has less orange tones compared to Peachstock.
Conclusion: I thought I wouldn't like them at first, but I'm glad I bought them. I will definitely purchase more in the future.
So did you purchase your Viva Glam Gaga 2 already?

    @ katie ~ I think they are quite similar, but fleshpot has a lot more orange tones compared to gaga 2. it depends on you, I like gaga 2 better tho
