MAC lipstick in Viva Glam Rihanna

19. junij 2014


Hello lovelies! Today I have a beautiful MAC lipstick to show you. I've already shown you Syrup and Crosswires, now it's Viva Glam Rihanna's turn. :) I'll be doing a red lipstick related post soon, but I thought this lipstick deserves its own post anyway... it's just so beautiful. :)





If you're not familiar with MAC lipsticks then I should explain why this lipstick is called Viva Glam Rihanna - for example, there's also a Riri Woo lipstick in MAC's collection as a result of a colaboration with Rihanna... so why Viva Glam? Well, Viva Glam lipsticks are sold in honor of MAC's AIDS fund and 100% of the purchase price of these lipsticks goes into this fund, which I think is amazing. :) Viva Glam Rihanna is the newest 'addition' to the Viva Glam family (as far as I know) and it's also (unfortunately) limited edition, so I'm not sure if you can still get it (maybe on eBay?).





So as you can see from the pictures, Viva Glam Rihanna comes in a gorgeous dark red bullet with Rihanna's signature on the inside. The lipstick itself is absolutely amazing! I don't really wear red lipstick often (only on special occasions), but this one is really one of my favorites. It has tiny shimmer running through it that isn't really noticeable when you're wearing it on your lips, but it gives a beautiful shine to them. As far as the color goes, I would say it's a medium red, leaning a bit towards the cooler spectrum, but on my lips looks pretty neutral. I was afraid it would be too bold, perhaps even too dark, but it turned out to be perfect! :)





It feels wonderful on the lips and it doesn't dry them out. Staying power is really nice - around 5-6 hours, if I wear a lip liner underneath. On the pictures bellow I've applied it without using a lip liner and I think it turned out quite nice, so you can get away with applying it straight from the bullet. :) It's quite creamy and opaque but I didn't notice too much bleeding around the lips, so it's a pretty easy lipstick to pull off. :)








So, what are your thoughts on this shade - something you'd like to wear or not for you? :) Are you looking forward to seeing all the different red lipsticks I have in my collection (but don't be to excited, it's not that big of a collection)? :)

    1. Haha... :) Res je lepa - pakiranje in odtenek, ampak če ti rdeča ne paše, potem definitivno ni zate. :)

    1. Ja, Riri Woo tudi zelo lepo izgleda, ampak meni je ta 'verzija' ravno zato všeč, ker je bolj kremna in svetleča, Riri Woo je pa mat. :)
