Beauty: Rihanna Viva Glam 2-Review

Heyyyy ladies!!! There is another lip duo to the Viva Glam family and this will be the 2nd for the Rihanna collection and I am excited about this one here. I finally received my Rihanna Viva Glam lipstick & lipglass, but because the way my work life is set up I am just now doing a post on it days after the fact, but anywho that's the way it be sometimes **smile**

The Rihanna Viva Glam was available for online purchase September 8 and available in stores September 11, but because I was anxious about it I purchased mines online.

The MAC website says this lipstick is a cool mauve shade with a frost finish, but I don't see it, however it looks more silvery/brownish color to me.

The tinted lipglass looks more mauvish with the hint of shimmer-which I love.

The swatches...

Of course, the color will vary from person to person when wearing it because of our different skin tones. In my opinion, I say have an open mind with it and create your look.

My review: So, I have worn the set the last few days and...I love, love, love the lipglass and will pair it with other lipsticks or wear by itself. The lipstick is another story, I like the color and that it is a frost, but on me I am not feeling it too much..maybe because I already have color in my lips and its not contrasting together, but I am not feeling it on me. I think I may try it with a liner to help with the color before returning. I have seen the lipstick on other ladies and it looks beautiful on them (I'm jelly of that, lol)

In addition, what I love about the Viva Glam is that every cent will go towards a charity helping women, men and children living with or affected by HIV/AIDS.

Have you or will you be purchasing the Rihanna Viva Glam Lipstick/lipglass duo?

Until next time....
