Review: MAC Viva Glam Rihanna Lipstick


I'm a little obsessed with MAC lipsticks, and my favourite is Viva Glam Nicki. So when I heard about Viva Glam Rihanna, I knew I'd have to try it out. I'm not a Rihanna fan myself, but there was so much hype surrounding RiRi Woo that it seemed necessary. 

I swatched it at the MAC counter, and fell in love with the deep red shade. I also love the burgundy packaging. It has a velvety feel about it, so it feels a little more luxurious than the usual MAC packaging. Like the Nicki Viva Glam (and presumably other celebrity collaborations), it has Rihanna's signature across the box and bullet.

The colour itself is a gorgeous, bright, blue-based red. It glides on really easily and has a frosted sheen to it, giving a lovely glossy look on the lips without being sticky. The pigmentation is fantastic too, so it gives a great dramatic impact. I've been leaning more towards pink shades lately, but I think this might have convinced me to convert back to reds.

  1. Yes! Back to reds! I really love red lips - they're just so versatile but still a "statement".

  4. I really love this lipstick. It's been a while since I've popped over to the Mac counter but I now feel like this is something I need to do again.

    Fab review and great photography. As someone who's biggest battle is getting photos to look decent I am mega jealous of your skills!

    1. Oh gosh, thank you Chelsey! Photography is one of the things I'm really trying to develop so it's wonderful to hear such lovely comments about it!

      I found that my skills have improved a huge amount over the past 2 years just from taking photos all the time to see what works and what doesn't.
