Viva Glam Rihanna was recently released, and I picked up both the lipstick and the gloss.
Rihanna launches our new M∙A∙C VIVA GLAM with two strikingly bold shades of red frosted Lipstick and Lipglass, perfectly capturing her fearless, confident style. Every cent of the selling price of VIVA GLAM Rihanna goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Limited-edition, soft-touch red packaging features RiRi’s signature.
I don’t usually go for reds, but I saw some pictures of others wearing it and decided to go for it since it looked so pretty, and the money goes to a good cause. I LOVE the packaging; it’s a soft, red velvety bullet and it has Rihanna’s signature on it. I’m not a fangirl, but some people like that sort of thing. 🙂
The lipstick is a frost finish. I was surprised…red frost just sounds so ’80s. That said, I don’t find the finish to be terribly frosty to the point where I can’t wear it (phew!).
Lipstick and lipglass
The REAL star of the show is the lipglass! This is ruby slippers in a tube, so of course I adore it. It is red with red pearl sparkle. If I could only pick one of the two, I would definitely get the lipglass.
Both products are blue-based reds. Personally, when I wear them I find them warmer in tone than Ruby-Woo (another blue-based red).
These are limited edition products, but will be available all year. Are you a fan?
