The latest installment of Mac's Viva Glam line released online a few days ago. This is the second collaboration with Rihanna and Viva Glam. For those who don't know, every cent of the selling price goes towards helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.
I received my package today and I have to admit at first glance I knew the lipstick wasn't something I'd normally wear. For starters, its a frost finish and I'm not a huge fan of frost's. Finish aside, its just an odd color for a lipstick. Its described as a cool mauve frost.
Although its not something I'd likely wear, hats off to Rihanna for thinking outside of the box and creating something different!
Now the tinted lip glass, on the other hand, is STUNNING! It is a sheer, cool toned gloss with loads of beautiful sparkle. I think it is beautiful on its own but is definitely perfect for layering and changing the way some of your favorite lipsticks look. As with the majority of Lip Glass's the formula is a bit sticky but its not something that would stop me from wearing it.
Here are some swatches on my arm.
