MAC is coming out with a new addiction to the Limited Edition Viva Glam Rihanna collection: the Viva Glam Rihanna 2 lipstick and lipglass!
The original Viva Glam Rihanna line includes a lipstick and a lipglass.
While the original Viva Glam Rihanna consists of reddish, easily wearable colours, the Viva Glam Rihanna 2 is daring, bolder.
“Rihanna brings a bold look to her fierce new Viva Glam 2014 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 is not only a limited edition. All the proceeds from the selling of the Viva Glam lipsticks and lipglasses will be allocated to the research against HIV/AIDS, in order to help men,women and children affected.
- The Viva Glam Rihanna 2 lipstick is
interesting. As the original Viva Glam Rihanna lipstick, it is a Frost and it’s provided with a velvety red packaging with Rihanna’s signature on the tube. On the site, it is described as a warm mauvey silver frost. From some swatches floating around the internet, i would say that it is a gold, silver,purple, mauve, brown colour.It’s a bit of everything. Used alone, it’s a very fierce, but it’s a weird colour. It reminds me of something futuristic.
- The Viva Glam Rihanna 2 Lipglass is way more wearable. It is described as a cool mauve with red frost. It is actually really pretty. It looks like a galaxy! There’s definitely more pink and purple in it than red. Looks amazing! This is gorgeous alone and, on top of the Viva Glam Rihanna 2 lipstick, it’s divine. The two products mixed together make magic!
The original Viva Glam Rihanna ad :
The dedication MAC has to the whole Viva Glam concept is amazingly praiseworthy, considering MAC influence in the beauty industry, but there’s one but! There’s something that i’m not getting with this particular addiction.
As a make up lover and as much as i love to create particular looks, i don’t know if i would wear this out. I would play with it a lot and, infact, it’s quite appealing to me, but whoever looks for a nice lipstick, i don’t know, would buy this? Viva Glam lipsticks should be really wearable, so they could be sold easily, in order to give more money to the HIV research, no?
