MAC describes Nicki's Lipstick as a Bright Yellow Pink (Satin) $14.50 U.S./$17.50 CDN, and Ricky's Lip Conditioner is Clear $15.00 U.S./ $18.00 CDN.
Nicki's Lipstick definitely is a warm-leaning pink with a touch of coral, and this is the type of color that I tend to shy away from given that I am a cool leaning NC-25. However, I was going to buy both lip products to support the cause- so I just needed to find a way to make this lipstick work for me, rather than to collect dust. I am no newbie to mixing colors to make less than flattering colors work for my skin tone, but this is a gorgeous color. So I tried it with a variety of cool leaning lip liners and lip glosses to customize it to the perfect shade of pink. The point is, don't be afraid of this bright color because you can easily morph it into the perfect shade if it is just a little too warm, or just a little too loud for you.
As for Ricky's Lip Conditioner, it is clear and fairly thick. It feels amazing on the lips and offers the perfect amount of sheen and moisture. It is great alone or on top of Nicki's Lipstick (or any lipstick for that matter). It comes in a squeeze tube which makes it very convenient and sanitary.

Both are now available everywhere MAC Cosmetics is sold.
Overall assessment: Both are must haves! You can feel great about supporting a FANTASTIC cause, and you will have two lovely lip products as a reminder!
