MAC - Viva glam Rihanna edition (Lipstick)
So one of MAC's charitable causes is the Viva glam range. It's a charity that gives all proceeds to help world HIV/AIDS causes. Inspired powerful figures come together and collaborate to make a lipstick or lipgloss to raise funds. I happily and proudly purchased the lipstick and lipgloss. As with all the Viva glam lipsticks they are exceptional quality and colours.
They say ;
Rihanna's blue-red with frost finish. The full R.R.P less V.A.T from the sale of this lipstick and lipglass goes towards helping women, men and children everywhere affected by HIV/AIDS. Limited-edition, soft-touch red packaging features RiRi's signature.
So Rihanna has been the "It" girl for the 2013 season with multiple collaborations being released. I did manage to purchase some of the collection and love the pieces I do have. However this final offering was a fine send off to a worthy MAC girl. I will cut the review into lipstick then lipgloss.
Packaging - so the packaging is a darkened blacked red, almost ombré effect. Has a suede like feel to it and as with all collections by celebrities, signed tube within.
Lipstick - Was described on the site as a frost red with blue tones. Now I'm a blue toned any lover as it makes my makeup sing. Just on my personal preference and why I probably own most blue toned MAC lipsticks. I just love how they look and feel. Plus the frost isn't so bad on and feels almost like a creamsheen to me. (again the creamsheens and amplified are what I gravitate too) It feels hydrating and looks in my opinion fabulous, little hints catch the light on this beautiful shade. I'm so happy I purchased this.
