I nipped onto the MAC USA site earlier and it seems that the launch of MAC Viva Glam Rihanna is imminent. Which means it should be crossing the pond very shortly. I was a bit fatigued with the amount of RiRi I’ve been seeing from MAC lately. I can’t say I’m her biggest fan in the celeb world, however a few pieces of the three collections that she launched in 2013 have made their way into my collection; RiRi Woo and Pleasurebomb lipstick to be precise. I was honestly expecting the new Viva Glam Rihanna to be an existing, rarer than hens teeth shade that had already been launched, in which I could take it or leave it, but no. MAC, you have done it again! Have you seen this brand new, beautiful, gorgeous, sexy lipstick and lipglass combo? Woweeee!!
As with previous Viva Glam lipsticks, the packaging is slightly different from the standard MAC lipsticks. This time, the matte deep red packaging has been favoured with a black barrel and Rihannas signature. The lipglass comes with a matching matte deep red lid.
The colour of the lipstick is a blue toned red, with a gold frost finish and the lipglass is a sheer cool toned red. I’ve linked a review by I’m A Beauty Geek as she has fabulous swatches of both products. The image below has also been taken from I’m A Beauty Geek.
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a colour like it. Its just so…well I have no words! I can safely say that Viva Glam Rihanna will be coming to live with me, that’s if I can get hold of one!
Having just checked the MAC UK website, they have added a banner to be notified when Viva Glam Rihanna launches. Lipsticks usually retail at £15, so I’m hoping that the Viva Glam Rihanna is in the same price point. As with all Viva Glam purchases, every penny of the sale goes towards the MAC Aids Fund.This post may contain PR samples that have been sent to me for consideration for review however all my opinions will be my own.
