First impressions: upcoming MAC Viva Glam Rihanna 2
06 Aug 2014
I’m sure you guys have seen these pictures already! They were all over social media the moment Rihanna and MAC Cosmetics made them public. Of course I’m talking about Rihanna’s new Viva Glam 2 lipstick and lipglass! Rihanna’s first lipstick for MAC Viva Glam is (it’s still available!) a big hit and now she has come out with a new one and a matching lipglass! These upcoming releases have, how should I put it…caused a little commotion? Yes, that’s the best way to describe it. Do we like them or not? Check out the official pictures below and find out what I think!
Rihanna brings a bold look to her fierce NEW VIVA GLAM campaign, accenting her fearless, confident style with new shades of frosted metallic mauve lipstick and lipglass, in a velvety soft packaging featuring her signature. Also available, the modern red hues of Rihanna’s original Viva Glam collection.
Viva Glam Rihanna II – cool mauve with red frost
Viva Glam Rihanna I – warm mauve with silver frost
My first impressions
I’m not gonna lie: I love Rihanna and I will buy every lip product she comes out with. In fact, I have. So far I have all her MAC lipsticks and I’m not ashamed of it. What can I say? I’m a fan. As far as these shades go: yes, they are different and yes, I have to see them in person and on my lips before I can really tell you my thoughts.I am definitely going to purchase the lipstick (I don’t do MAC lipglasses anymore, way too sticky for my taste), because it’s different. It screams 90’s to me! This is the lipstick shade I wore back in the day in high school. For some reason I was obsessed with lipsticks that were a bit mauve and frosty. I think a lot of people were. Haha! It’s quite different from all the warm, pink tones I’ve been wearing lately. Also, it’s a lipstick in the ‘frost’ finish, which I think looks pretty combined with a natural, smokey eye! And don’t forget: every cent of the selling price of Viva Glam Rihanna goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/aids. So even if I purchase the lipstick and I end up not wearing it, my money will be well spent!
MAC Viva Glam Rihanna will be available on September 11, 2014 at all MAC locations in the US and MAC’s website. Not sure when Rihanna 2 will be available overseas. As soon as I know for sure, I will update this post.
