Last time when the Rihanna collection was out, I could not get any of the lipsticks. So this time I had to get the Rihanna collection lipstick.
What does MAC say about the collection –
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.
What does MAC say about Viva Glam Lipstick –
Rihanna’s blue-red with frost finish Lipstick applies with a subtle shine and gold sparkle. Every cent of the selling price of VIVA GLAM goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Limited-edition, soft-touch red packaging features RiRi’s signature.
Packaging is beautiful. It’s a frosted maroon packaging with Rihanna’s signature when you open the lipstick.
I did not find that the color blue-red. When I applied it, I found it more warm undertones. It’s bright red but is the red which is very wearable. The color is really opaque and very richly pigmented. A little bit goes a long way. The application is like a dream; it just glides on and is very easy to work with.
The texture very wearable and applies really well on the lips and stays for at 4-5 hrs. It doesn’t dry out and is very hydrating. It’s frosty but not too frosty and gives the lips luscious sheen.
I love the color; it’s very pretty; a very wearable red. This is a kind of red which looks good on most complexions. The pigment and texture is very good, however I feel that the staying power should have been a little better, maybe because of the frosty finish the staying power is a little less.
I will give it a 7.5/10. Overall; a good red lipstick.
