All is in the title ! The love between Rihanna and Mac Cosmetics is not over, this time it’s for the famous collection : Viva Glam. When you purchase one product from Viva Glam’s collection, every cent goes for helping people affected by AIDS. I really like when a brand get involve in a cause and I never hesitate to buy one of these products.
Red lipstick is like the little black dress, a must have in our makeup bags. Red is a color that has always elate the generosity of feminine lips. I must confess that I possess a myriad of red lipsticks but it’s like nude palette I can’t stop myself to purchase them and finally all my reds are looking different.
In theory the Rihanna’s red for Viva Glam is the same as the Riri Woo : blue-red magically whitening your teeth. Its finish changes because it’s a frost. I said frost ? Yes, it gives a brightening, iridescent finish.
I find it’s an intriguing and interesting red lipstick because this red changes in accordance with light. It has cold tone but in the same time when exposed to light warm tone appears. Resultats are simply stunning and I like it !
- When you open the black package you discover a velvet touch red packaging and the Rihanna’s signature on it.
- Don’t expect too much for application, it stays a red : makeup artists say it, repeat it, hammer home it, red lips are truly difficult even for them ! However don’t be afraid, pigmentation is great, its creamy side perfectly glides along lips.
- This strawberry/raspberry red gives shining colour which can suit to every skin tones and perfectly match with a lot of makeups.
HOT OR NOT ?
Definitively HOT ! I like the Viva Glam as much as I dislike the Riri Woo ! It makes me crazy ! It deserves a place in our makeup bag and I have one word : go for it, you won’t regret your purchase.
Price : US 16$ on Mac .
