My dear friend went to the United States last January for a vacation. She was so sweet to buy a lot of makeup for me from MAC and Urban Decay. We met last Saturday so she can personally deliver the
evidence makeup, so now, I have a lot of makeup to play with. Yay! If you follow me on Instagram, you should already know what I got! (This, this and this!) 😀
Cost: $16.00 Amount: 0.10 fl. oz. Bought: MAC website
I got another MAC lipstick and it is something that is very special to me. When you buy this lipstick, 100% of the proceeds are donated to MAC Global AIDS Fund to help people living with HIV. If you don’t know yet, I am a HUGE Rihanna fan that is why I am so happy to own her collection. I was able to buy the Fall and Holiday Lipstick collections, except Talk that Talk, and now, this gorgeous shade.
The packaging of this lipstick is velvety and, very sophisticated. It is very pretty! It is my most favorite of all the lipsticks that I have. Rihanna’s signature is printed on the box, and on the tube. It’s as if it was really signed by her. I feel so close to her. HAHAHA!
This MAC Viva Glam Rihanna Lipstick has a more matte red with a hint of purple, creating a richer, and more velvet-like red finish. It is a frost type but it does not appear so bright or frosty, unlike other lipsticks that I have tried on. It is much pigmented and it glides on easily. This texture will not last the same as the matte ones, but I bet it will be a decent amount of time, just because it is MAC. Hehe. I am just a newbie in owning MAC lipsticks, and I love all that I have so far. I have reviewed my first MAC Lipstick here, and another one here.
I love that this shade is a deeper red. It will be easier to pull off with minimal makeup. I am also happy that it is not so frosty. It is just right. I am excited to wear this for a longer period of time to really test if I like it a lot. 🙂
I am not sure when this lipstick will launch in the Philippines, but hopefully soon so that you can also purchase one if you like it. I am thinking of wearing this tonight, Valentine’s Day, at work. I don’t care if it is red, and if people will stare. Lol! 😛
Do you love wearing red lipsticks? What are your favorites? 🙂
BTW, who’s your date? 😀
