By Sush Hey Beauties, This is no secret that I am getting addicted towards red lipsticks after Limecrime Red Velvetine. Here is another RED Lipstick for you. I have been literally shocked to see me collecting red lipsticks, anyways few months back when MAC launched our new M∙A∙C VIVA GLAM with two strikingly bold shades of red frosted Lipstick and Lipglass, I am not a lip gloss fan but I knew I will pick the lipstick. It’s a Stunner, very different and confident shade just like Rihanna’s Style.
WHAT MAC SAYS: Rihanna’s blue-red with frost finish Lipstick applies with a subtle shine and gold sparkle. Every cent of the selling price of VIVA GLAM goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Limited-edition, soft-touch red packaging features RiRi’s signature. Pro discount is not applicable.
PRICE: 1190 INR OR US$16.00 QUANTITY: 3g / 0.1 US oz
Most of us love Rihanna, I am not a big fan of her but love few of her songs. I was super excited with the news of MACs launches collaborating with Rihanna. Rihanna Holiday Collection, Rihanna Collection and then VIVA GLAM Rihanna Collection which perfectly capturing her fearless, confident style.

MAC describes VIVA GLAM RIHANNA as Blue tone RED with Frost Finish. It is medium- deep red but on me it is RED with warm undertone. I don’t see any blue undertone to it, may be because undertones dependson persons to persons and lip colours. I don’t have anything like this in my stash and hence I had to pick this colour. The whole thing is such a beauty!! Look at the packaging isnt it attarctive?? The velvetty matte deep red body is unique and extraordinary than what we get in regular line. According to MAC it has frost finish but on lips it doesn’t really shows up any frostiness. Gives me 5-6hours long wear time without meal and with meal it does fade a little bit from inner side of lips but still stay put.
The colour coverage is extremely opaque and glides smoothly on lips without any pulling or tugging. I have noticed that it set into satin – matte finish after few minutes. It leaves my lips well hydrated and therefore no clinching on lip lines. The pigmentation is rich and opaque. One swipe is enough to cover whole lips. This shade is one of my favorites. The only turn off for me is how it transfers on my teeth… lol yeah true! It does transfer very easily; need to be very cautioned while applying.
What I like about MAC VIVA GLAM RIHANNA (FROST):
- The shade is stunner.
- Set into Satin-matte finish after few minutes.
- Shimmers or Frost doesn’t show up on lips.
- Awesome staying power as usual.
- Packaging is praise worthy.
- Limited Edition.
- MRP is regular: 1190 INR.
- Fact that every cent of VIVA GLAM lipsticks goes as helping hands towards HIV/AIDS affected men, woman and childrens.
What I don’t like about MAC VIVA GLAM RIHANNA (FROST):
- Transfers quite often on teethes. :/ Let me know if you feel the same.
Rating: 4.5/5 (-5 for transferring).
Final Words: Most of you who bought this shade will agree with me how pretty and hot it is.. I guess it suits most skin tones. Wearable and easily to pull off. Muted Red with un noticeable frost finish. Stunner!
