Hello beautiful makeupholics….Hope you guys are doing absolutely fantastic! Today I am reviewing MAC Viva Glam Rihanna Lipstick .  I am a fan of red shades especially if its a blue based red. I feel that blue based reds suit me a lot. I managed to get this super exciting shade through one of my colleague during his recent trip to US…

What Mac Says
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. Viva Glam Rihanna Lipstick ($16 for 3g / 0.1 US oz) and  Viva Glam Rihanna Lipglass ($15 for 4.8 g / 0.17 US oz). The colors are bold and are highly pigmented.  I’ve missed out on previous limited-edition MAC shades especially Ririwoo, I did not want to miss out again.






More Pictures, Swatches and Lotds & Fotds






This MAC Viva Glam Rihanna Lipstick has a frost formula. It’s described as a blue-red . It has a metallic sheen (warm red frost) but on the lips it doesn’t appear too frosty . It’s a very pigmented bright red color – pigmented enough to cover the entire lip and show up true-to-tube on darker-toned lips which is a great plus for pigmented lips. It’s a striking shade – something which I can’t carry for an everyday or to the office looks. I normally do not like a metallic sheen in lipstick, but I must admit that MAC has done here in a very different way.

The lipstick is creamy and sits  on my lips without fading or transfering. It’s soft, but not so soft that it emits huge and so go down quickly from my lips. The coverage is good.  MAC Viva Glam lipstick Rihanna stays on me easily for 4 hours. This is how it looks on me. All pictures are taken under direct sunlight without any flash.

It doesn’t accentuate your fine lines on lips or make your lips dry. I particularly like this formula. This is a universally flattering shade and I love this!  it makes your teeth look whiter and also please excuse my bleeding teeth…I didn’t notice it while taking pics :/


And below is a picture of me…Excuse my no makeup face and of course my horrible panda circles around my eyes….


Hope you guys loved the review..I don’t know when will this be launched in India…but, this is a shade worth trying if you love Reds….
