I was SUPER DE DUPER excited when I heard (and read) Rihanna was coming out with MAC Viva Glam lipstick and lipglass. Even though I marked the release date on my calendar, I didn’t get it the day it came out. I was biting on nails, impatiently waiting for swatches to pop up. After I saw pretty much all shades from alabaster to the deepest skin tone (Alek Wek) I added them to my cart, closed my eyes and hit the checkout button.
If you didn’t know, MAC Viva Glam is a limited edition collection that goes to a great cause! All proceeds of the MAC VG collection helps women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Not only I get to have this awesomeness in my possession, it’s a great feeling to know that I’m helping others.
***Mind you, this post.. THIS POST.. is hella old lol. I forgot all about it honestly. Thank goodness for auto save***

Look at the packing of these beauties! It’s hard to describe, feels super smooth, and can get easily scratched up so provide a “special” place in your lippie draw or whatever or place them in a sandwich bag lol. Do what you can to not jack up the packaging!
And here are the swatches..
I compared RiRi Viva Glam lipstick with two other frost type lippies I believe from the Wet n Wild Megalast collection. I wanted to show you what grandma frost (WNW) and modern frost (RVG) looked like. I so was not here for WNW frost and I wish I gave them back but I purchased them at one point and forgot about them at one point too lol.
RVG goes on wonderfully smooth and non drying. Like I said this is not your nana’s frost. It’s more like a toned down metallic.
The wear time for the lipstick, for me, is a couple of hours. With the lipglass is about one hour. Here I applied too much since around an hour and a half/two hours I layered on a second time.
I wanted to purchase another RVG lippie and lipglass but I got caught up in the MAC Alluring Aquatic haul, my pockets were literally in tears lol.
I am thinking about swatching all my MAC RiRi lippies and post it. I think I have about six now. The last one I got I spent a boatload on. *cries*
Let me know what you guys think about this post! 😀
