So MAC Viva Glam Rihanna 2 Lipstick made it’s way into my stash. It actually wasn’t in my plans. I had decided that I didn’t really want it but my cousin Mo felt that I needed it so she bought it for me for my birthday. Thanks Mo 🙂
Viva Glam Rihanna 2, Rihanna’s second MAC Viva Glam shade is a taupe brown with a frost finish. It definitely gives a bold look. I mean 90’s style black lip liner with frosty taupe lipstick bold. No worries as I will not be pulling out any black lip liner over here. I can get with frost lips making a comeback but black lip liner is a trend that I hope stays dead. Anyway, one thing about frost lipsticks is that it will show every single line, crease and crevice. It is not forgiving at all so you really MUST exfoliate and moisturize prior to applying. Even after doing all of that it still makes your lips look kind of dry. On a brighter note it wears well even through a light meal and does not require too many touch ups.
I’m still on the fence about Viva Glam Rihanna 2. I kind of like it and I kind of don’t. The cool taupe makes me look really washed out, especially since I’m under the weather and my skin is looking dull. Maybe when I feel better and have some more color I’ll like it better. I won’t write it off completely yet.
