As soon as I saw the pictures of Mac’s new Viva Glam lipstick, I just knew I had to get my hands on it!
BTW- This song has been on repeat for the past few months or so. Love it! What’s your fave Riri song?
The color is so reminiscent of the 90’s! Given, I’ve never wore dark lipsticks in the 90’s but this fall/winter I will be incorporated darker fall colors in my makeup looks.
I’m sure you’ve read many reviews and see many swatches of this lipstick. I have to agree with the majority of people out there. Mac states that this is a mauve lipstick with a silver finish; however, it screams more of brownish taupe with a silver frost.
Guys I’m LOVING this color! When applied it has a gorgeous metallic finish. You do have to work with it a bit in order to get a nice even finish. I honestly thought when looking at this it would have a bit a rough consistency due to the finish, but surprisingly it did not. It went on nice and smooth.
The only thing I wasn’t crazy about, was that it really emphasized the lines on my lips. So I definitely recommend moisturizing your lips prior to applying. I also found it a tad bit drying. I’m willing to overlook the above because I don’t have a color like this at all and the pros are definitely outweighing the cons right now.
Rockin’ the freshly wet hair look.
I wish I had ordered the Viva Glam 2 Rihanna lip gloss as well. From what I’ve seen it looks gorgeous over top of this. I’m going to look through my lip gloss stash to see if I have any dupes. If not, I will be placing an order.
What do you think of the new Mac Viva Glam 2 Rihanna lipstick? Is this a color you would wear? Let me know in the comments below.
