MAC Viva Glam Rihanna Frost: Today I am going to review a truly awesome product-the Mac Viva Glam Rihanna. Now, I am a Lip pencil kind of gal …you know the kinds who aren’t really sure if Lipsticks would suit her? I always get drawn towards the more muted tones like fig, coco pink and MAC soar…you get the drift na 😛 So as it goes, I needed to attend a family function, and the Anarkali I chose was reddish orange. As usual, I was going for the muted colors…but my friend just put her foot down. I was promptly “taken” lipstick shopping, for a decent “matching” shade. :): P I am truly glad I let myself get bullied by my dear friend 😀
What is it and who is it for?
A lovely frosty red lipstick. Looks great with traditional attire!
How to Use:
On exfoliated and moisturized lips, apply in a single swipe. Give a break of 5 minutes before applying the second layer.
My Experience with MAC Viva Glam Rihanna Frost:
It is said that every girl MUST have a red lipstick in her collection. It should be ‘her’ red…that flatters her …and unleashes the diva in her 🙂 So when I finally found a red lipstick…that didn’t make me nervous…but actually made me feel even more confident…I was on cloud nine! First the packaging of this lipstick….oh I haven’t seen anything classier or s*xier!! It is beyond awesome beautiful red. The lipstick has Rihanna’s signature on it…and it is a limited edition product…all the more a reason to pick it up 😉
Now coming to the shade…it’s a gorgeous orangeish red which is ‘frosty”. It has a really subtle golden shimmer.The shade is such that it would really flatter most skin tones. The shade is so great that it can be worn both with ethnic attires…and it would also flatter western outfits. This lipstick is really pigmented. As you can see from the swatches, even a single swipe has a really good color payoff. Like all MAC lipsticks, this too has a really long staying power. You really don’t need to touch it up for 4-6 hours!! I have used it both with a lip pencil and without a lip pencil…I feel the staying power is definitely more when used with a pencil. The fact that it is frosted…is icing on the cake for me. It does not settle into lip lines, nor does it feel heavy on the lips. Actually…maybe, I am more comfortable since it is frosted…as matte shades are not that forgiving.
This beauty…sponsors a benefit too. Every single penny earned from the sales of this lipstick goes to the AIDS foundation. This fact is just like a Brownie point shower for me.The fact that someone as coy as me has used this lipstick while going shopping with my friends…speaks volumes about how much I love it!!
- Beautiful shade-can be worn with both ethnic and western wear

Would I repurchase and recommend?
