MAC Viva Glam Rihanna 2 Review & Swatches

by - September 15, 2014

I was very excited to get my hands on Rihanna's new Viva Glam lipstick and gloss. The first one was ok to me as it was a frosty red but nothing all that special in my opinion. I tried it out but didn't purchase. Eventually I will as it is for a good cause and the packaging is fab. But this new one I just had to get. The color was unique and although it veered away from usual bright and bold colors. I find it bold in a unique and understated way. I was told it makes me look more mature, which isn't a bad thing. And others did point out that they liked it but missed my usual bright colors. But Fall is almost here and I can't rock bright lips all the time. Plus I do love a vampy lip as well. Can't wait to pull out some of my faves.
Here is the lipstick by itself. It's described as a warm mauvey silver frost but it's basically a silver frosted brown. Nothing wrong with brown lipsticks. As you can see with my lip color it doesn't really wow on it's on.

Here is the lipstick and gloss together, which in my opinion is how it should be worn. It is such a pretty combo and not one you see often. I find it a nice change from my usual colors. It's described as a cool mauve with red frost, which fits for the most part. It also has lots of shimmer, which was hard to capture.

The lipstick by itself is an odd choice but with the gloss it comes to life. It's a winning combo and goes perfectly with deeper skin tones. I love it and will definitely be picking up a back up as this set is limited edition. But no need to rush as it should be available for at least 6 months. Try both with a deep purple liner like Mac Currant or Night Moth for another winning combo.
Just a reminder: 100% of all Viva Glam proceeds goes towards helping women, men and children living and affected by HIV/AIDS. So don't feel guilty about this purchase since it's for a good cause.

Happy Hunting!
