To kick off a new year for Viva Glam, MAC have appointed Rihanna as their new official spokesperson for 2014. For those of you that aren’t aware, Viva Glam is a range sold at MAC that gives every penny to women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.

Rihanna’s first contribution to the Viva Glam line comes in the form of a limited edition red lipstick and lipglass, of course it wouldn’t be anything but red. Both in the same blue-toned red that flatters cool skin tones and pops on warmer skin tones like mine. 

The lipstick comes in MAC’S ‘Frost’ finish that I think looks quite glistening and glossy. Something I noticed about this compared to other MAC lipsticks I have is that it glided on beautifully without tugging at the lips at all. The limited edition packaging is completely mesmerising, it’s a deep red matte with Rihanna’s signature loosely wrapped around it. 

The lipstick is £15, the lipglass is £14 and both go into stores and on MAC counters today. Rememeber all the money goes to a great cause so there’s no shopping guilt involved… in fact I encourage you to go shopping and if your boyfriend complains of you buying another red lipstick tell him it was a charity donation! 

So what do you think of Rihanna’s first Viva Glam collection?

    There’s something different about this shade of red, I cant decide whether I like it or not, although I’m a sucker for any red lip product and this shade really does suit you!… Love the idea of telling the boyf its not shopping, its a charity donation (that comes with a gift!)! lol!

    It looks so pretty, but so bright! I’ve heard people say her line isn’t very good.
    But it’s amazing all the money goes to a good cause.

  • flailsandnails

    I really like this shade. I’ve been debating about whether to get Rihanna’s Viva Glam lipstick or the original Viva Glam shade as my first MAC lipstick (or product ever, I think OMG). Tough decision but it all goes to charity which is the important thing :D

  • Annie Lindsay

    This color is PERFECT on you. It’s so bold but somehow natural? That sounds nuts but it’s basically the perfect red.

  • VP

    Wow that lipstick looks amazing. My favorite red of all times is Russian Red from Mac, but this one looks like competition. I must have it!
