My love for MAC and Red lippies continues and so today I’ll be reviewing a lipstick from MAC’s newest launch- Viva Glam Rihanna collection. This collection is yet to get launched in India and I got this from USA with my Naked pallets. I ordered this shade out of a whim and up until it was delivered, I was apprehensive about it suiting me, because it was a frosted one. I never liked frosty/shimmery lipsticks.
So read on to find if it made me fall in love or cringe back.
About MAC Frost Lipstick Viva Glam Rihanna:
“As members of the MAC Viva Glam family of gorgeous products, 100 percent of the proceeds from the sale of MAC Viva Glam Rihanna Lipsticks and Lipglasses go to support the MAC AIDS Fund, which helps women, children and men living with HIV/AIDS.”
MAC describes this lipstick as a blue-red with a Frost finish.
Price: $16.00 for 0.10 oz..But I am sure it will be more than its equivalent in rupee when launched in India.
My experience with MAC Frost Lipstick Viva Glam Rihanna:
Packaging: The packaging is gorgeous. The lipstick comes in a blood red satiny finished case, which I love. It has Rihanna’s name autographed on the inner black part. The outer pack looks beautiful too. It is a black case with Rihanna’s signature in shinny metal red. Looks sooo sultry, spicy, naughty and sooo “Rihannaish” …
Shade: The shade is super super gorgeous tomato red on me. It is definitely a blue based red with small pinkish/rosy shimmer particles, but the best part is even with the shimmers it doesn’t give a glittery finish, but just a flamboyant sheen.
Texture: It is a frost textured lipstick and that is what I was most afraid of. I am totally NOT a shimmery-frosty person when it comes to lipsticks. But luckily the frost doesn’t show much on lips, but leaves soft, shinny, juicy looking lips. It glides super smoothly without tugging and pulling. Second best part is, it doesn’t feather out.
Pigmentation: Greatly pigmented. It goes opaque it just one swipe and with two it gives bold flush of gorgeous color.
Staying power: I didn’t use any lip liner, and it stayed on and on for a good 6hours without any fading or feathering. It survives drinks and snacks as well. After that it starts to fade, but evenly. My lips were well hydrated even after it completely faded away. It neither left behind any stubborn shimmers.

Would I recommend MAC Viva glam Rihanna to others?
Total spicy and total juicy looking lips with MAC Viva glam Rihanna, I recommend this highly. You just need to get this before it vanishes from stores, because Mac seems to love torturing us with the best products that happen to be limited edition.
I am loving this lipstick, and currently is one of my most favorite red. I have so many red, yet this stands out in my vanity. Love the packaging, love the shade, the texture, color payoff. It just makes me soopper happy with its sheen and moisturizing property. I am totally happy and satisfied.
