Well as most of you have problably already seen, hot of the press is Rihanna’s newest MAC collab, this time it’s Viva Glam 2, featuring a lipstick and lip glass. The lipstick is described as a warm mauve with silver frost, and the gloss is a cool mauve with red frost.
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.
So, the lipstick. Metallic mauve anyone? This shade really doesn’t inspire me at all I’m afraid. Yes Rihanna looks amazing with neon green Grinch-esque hair and a frosted brown lipstick that’s been time warped from the 90’s, just like she would look amazing in a bin bag. Would us mere mortals appear quite as fabulous though? I very much doubt it. So yeah, I’m not really a fan of the lipstick. I just don’t think it’s a very wearable colour at all. The Lip glass on the other hand does interest me. I like the look of it, it looks lilac-y and sparkly and pretty. You know I’m a fan of a purple lippy so this does appeal! The fact that it has a red frost does concern me though, I’m really not sure how that will look when you wear it but I’m keen to find out!
Overall I think I’m going to keep an open mind about these products, what do you think though? Are these lippies a hit or a miss for you? xx
