Rihanna’s two shades of VIVA GLAM Lipstick. Her new cool mauve shade and original blue-red with frost finish, both apply 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 velvety red packaging features RiRi’s signature. Pro discount is not applicable.
To see, the original Viva Glam Rihanna, click here for review. Viva Glam Rihanna 2 is described as, “Warm mauvey silver frost” and when you look at the bullet or even swatch on your arm, you may be a little wary about this shade, but I’m going to show you why you need this lipstick in your life besides the fact that 100% of the profit from Viva Glam goes toward helping people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.
This shade is definitely a showstopper, and when I looked upon it, I immediately thought of MAC Icon. They are kind of similar, but I feel that MAC Icon is more of a frosty glaze, while MAC Viva Glam Rihanna 2 is more of a matte frost.
Let’s take a closer look at MAC Viva Glam Rihanna 2 on its own, and then, I will share how you can make it more wearable!
Now, I decided that it was a little too unusual for me to wear out on its own, so I decided to add a berry lip liner underneath. I used Starlooks Lip Infinity Pencil in Terri’s Choice from the November 2014 Starbox.
Then, I added MAC Viva Glam Rihanna 2 over it and it made the most gorgeous sparkly purple!!
So, it makes it more wearable and beautiful, and you can do this with any color lip pencil. I’m going to have a lot of fun trying different combos! It doesn’t hurt that all the money spent on this lipstick will go to help those with AIDS/HIV.
Will you be buying this? Do you prefer it on its own or paired with a different shade?
