Rihanna launches 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 was really wishy washy about buying this lipstick only because I own way too many reds for my own good, but since this is going to a good cause, I decided to go for it. I think I was really surprised by this lipstick. For those of you who are not big fans of frosts, don’t be hesitant. This lipstick is NOT that much of a frost, as I will show you.
Honestly, I was expecting an uber glossy red with an almost jelly-like transparency. God knows where I came up with that because this is nothing like that. It is heavy on the lips like a frost usually is and is drying, but you could probably pair this with the matching lipglass (but know that there is lots of sparkle in it). I like this for a night out when I’m not in the mood for my usual matte red. This is definitely a beautiful lipstick, but if you’re not into the frost finish or a bit of sparkle (very minute, as you will see below!), then this may not be THE red for you!!
And, finally, my overall look with this gorgeous red:
So, what do you think? Is this a red for you or will you be passing?
