MAC Viva Glam Rihanna 2 Photos, Swatches, and Review


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.

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?

  1. I love this with your skin tone! ^_^ xx

  2. Hey,

    What a difference!!! I swore to myself I wouldn’t buy this lipstick, cuz it was a no-go to me, but seeing the way u made it go from the beast to the beauty makes me change my mind! Great move, dear, great move!!!

  3. Those plum shades sure look good on you. The packaging of that velvety mac lipstick is gorgeous.

  4. That was a fabulous idea! I’ve been wary of the color but now I totally think I could get it and be really happy with it, not just buy it to have it! 😀

  7. I love MAC products but not loving the Rhianna collection. They do look great on you though, would not on me.

    • Thank you! I totally understand. These are definitely not everyone’s cup of tea. I could not wear it alone, either, so that’s why I tried layering it and definitely prefer it this way! <3

  8. Pinks are my favorite lipsticks. I’ve been wanting to try a burgundy like that though!

  9. Those colors look gorgeous on you! I love MAC!

  10. I love lipstick! I really like the third look with the combination of colors. They all look really amazing with your skin tone!

  11. I think that looks really great on you. I like the colors together.

  12. I think when you added the berry lip liner and rihanna viva I think makes a perfect colour one that I would dare to wear though i love MAC this rihanna one is not my fav

  13. Wow! I do not think I could pull off this shades, but you certainly do. Rocking it!

  14. Wow, that Rihanna shade is so different! Very 90’s!! I definitely don’t think I could pull it off, but you rock it well!


  15. You sure made a nice combination with the two lipsticks. It suits your complexion as well!

  16. Those colors look great on you. I’m not sure I could pull them off.

  17. Yes honey! When you combined the two colors together…you did that! Love it!

  18. You pull off the best “lip looks” 🙂 I love it!

  19. I think the sparkly purple is my favorite. It looks beautiful with your skin tones.

  20. I love the way it looks on you. The layering definitely brightens up your face!

  21. Such beautiful makeup as always!

  22. Great color combo and lipstick layering! Yeah, I agree that on its own, it’s a bit too cool-toned. Good if you’re purposefully going for a metallic cool look, but not something to be worn on a typical day. The metallic purple final look is gorgeous!


  23. I love the sleek packaging of Mac products!! Beautiful colors!

  24. That packaging is so Rihanna…lol. Love the combo you created. Great color on you.
