Viva Glam Rihanna Review and Swatches

WOOO HOOOO, three exams done and one more to go then I get home to a package from Mac... Today could not have been any better haha! Anyways today I am going to be reviewing the Viva Glam Rihanna Lipstick and Lipglass. My lovely parents decided to treat me to both of these products because I am almost finished my exams, woot woot. Anyways I was super surprised when I ordered this on Tuesday when this came out online and was delivered today; two days later. Anyways enough about me, lets get onto the review.

Viva Glam Rihanna  

The packaging of these products is stellar, they come in the standard boxes with a little bit of a twist; Rhianna's signature in a metallic red. The actual packaging of the products is even better. The lipstick comes in a gorgeous scarlet - burgundy tube that has a rubberized texture similar to the packaging of the Temperature Rising collection that came out this past summer. The lipglass has the same red, rubberized material on the handle as well. 

Viva Glam Rihanna Lipstick - $18.00
Viva Glam Rihanna Lipglass - $19.00

The lipstick is a frosty, blue toned red colour. Now I usually do not go for frosty colours but since all of the proceeds from this lipstick go to the Mac Aids Fund how could I resist. This is still such a gorgeous colour that looks super glamorous when layered with the lipglass. This red is one of those colours that is great for making your teeth look whiter since its blue toned, which is always a plus for me. I also think that this colour would look fantastic on a lot of different skin tones; so if you're looking for a frost red I would definitely recommend this to anyone. 

The lipglass is also a gorgeous blue toned red with tons of shimmer. When swatched on the hand this lipglass looks a lot more intense then it does on the actual lips, so don't be too frightened off by the swatch. In all honesty I'm not sure how much wear I am going to get out of this gloss because I am more of a lipstick person (because I can't really deal with the stickiness of the gloss) but I still think its a gorgeous addition to my collection and it really does look gorgeous paired with the lipstick.

Overall I do really enjoy both of these colours and I am really happy that Mac is giving back by donating all of the proceeds to the Mac Aids Fund. I absolutely love pairing these two lippies together  because they leave me feeling like Dorothy from the Wizard of Oz except with Ruby Red Lips instead of slippers. Anyways gals let me know if you'll be picking up this glamorous duo any time soon (but don't forget Viva Glam RiRi is limited edition...)
