MAC Viva Glam Rihanna

MAC Cosmetics has outdone themselves this time with the NEW Viva Glam Rihanna!

This shade goes well on ALL skin tones! Meaning, EVERYONE!!

This is the staple of all lipstick!

I bought two just in case it sold out.  I will be going back to get more though.  I don’t want to run out of this.

MAC Viva Glam Rihanna

This is the Fiercest of Red lipsticks and who better to represent it other than Rihanna!

MAC Viva Glam Rihanna

This is just a little too fierce to wear in my military uniform during work, but I put on MAC Diva first then top it off with this Viva Glam Rihanna to make a perfect mixture.   I call it Rihanna the Diva!

I’ll do some photos of that lipstick mix this week.

But onto to reason we’re here……. Viva Glam Rihanna!

I’m absolutely in LOVE with this shade.

It’s a bold fiercely red frosted lipstick.  There’s also a lipglass, but the lipstick itself is moisturizing and bold enough for me to not have to wear the gloss.

The great thing about the MAC Viva Glam collection is that, every cent of the selling price of VIVA GLAM Rihanna goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. Limited-edition, soft-touch red packaging features RiRi’s signature.

There’s that Limited-Edition phrase…….If you haven’t jumped in your vehicle yet to go to the MAC counter or ordered online, DO IT NOW before they’re GONE.  Actually, just wait a few minutes, because I have to place an order myself!!!

I’m Filipina with a MAC NC 30-35 shade.

So this is what it looks like on me.  Now mind you, I don’t have the best camera.  I seriously need a new camera to take some awesome clearer photos to post here.  So, if y’all got the hook up…..Help your girl out!!! I’m jus’ sayin’!!!!

MAC Viva Glam Rihanna

Yes, I love to be goofy.

But I’m just so freaking happy to have this lipstick gem!

I think I’ve mentioned this but just in case I haven’t……..I LOVE HAVING VIVA GLAM RIHANNA!!!

I don’t know how MAC is going to up the ante from this shade.

Rihanna has collaborated with MAC before and some people are so over it already, but I’m glad they’re sticking with her.  Why mess up a good thing!  It’s obviously working!

This shade is an epitome of the fierceness Rihanna!

Hands down the BEST Viva Glam to date!

You may be thinking to yourself that you can’t rock the Burgundy look, but it there’s a shade for EVERYONE!

You just have to be brave enough to rock these colors.

They’re so bold and daring,  people may think twice to cross you in a negative way. Especially, if you haven’t had your coffee yet. 😉

The colors that I have are all my M•A•C Cosmetics.

From left to right:

New York Apple, Diva, Heart Hangover,  Dark Side, Endless Drama,  Hipster, Media, Dark Deed, and Underground.

Descriptions of each:

New York Apple (Frost) is a classic berry-based red

Diva (Matte) is an intense reddish burgundy

Heart Hangover (Pro Longwear Lipcreme) is a deep maroon color that lasts forever!

Dark Side (Amplified) is a deep cool-toned burgundy red

Endless Drama (Pro Longwear Lipcreme) is a deep berry red with a soft frosted finish with Rudy micro-shimmer

Hipster (Frost) is a burgundy plum with a frost finish

Media (Satin) is a deep burgundy plum

Dark Deed (Amplified) is a darkened blood-red with blacklish-brown with an amplified fishing touch from the MAC’s Disney Venomous Villains Collection.

Underworld (Satin) is a deepened red-based brown with a glossy satin finish

The way I apply my lipsticks is that I put on my lipstick first just a little shy of my lip line then I apply my lip liner.  I found that best for when I apply lipsticks,  because you don’t want a harsh line. I blend in my lip liner after my lipstick.

Give it a try if you don’t already do that and let me know what you think.  If it works for you or not.

Now to my FAVORITE Burgundy lipstick that I told you I was going to tell you about…..My Must-Have, can’t run out of it Burgundy lipstick is ENDLESS DRAMA!

I Can wear this shade in my military uniform and feel fabulous, fierce, and in military regulations!

Now that I’ve shown you my Must-Have Burgundy lipsticks,  was any of yours on this list?

BA STAR Eye Shadow Palette Review

BA ★ STAR sent me one of their new eye shadow palettes and their eye shadow base for my very active daughter to try out.


If you have your daughters, yourself, nieces, cousins, sisters, or friends in dance, cheerleading, or anything they have to perform,  then this is the cosmetics you want to get for them.
They’re highly pigmented and long-lasting.  Which is a plus since you’re moving, shaking, and building up a sweat.
There’s 2 different palette combinations: Midnight Smokey and Natural.
The one we received is the Natural palette.

If you have guy friends, boyfriends,  husbands,  or significant others,  they may wonder why we have so many different pink lipsticks.  As you can tell by the pictures, they are all different in one way or another.

I tend to buy MAC lipsticks because of their long-lasting staying power.

My HOLY GRAIL Pink lipstick is MAC Angel.  During the Spring or Summer times, this is my every day pink lipstick for work.  Match it with a nice smokey eye and all is gorgeous!!  I love the way that it has a vanilla scent to the lipstick too.  I usually always smell it before I apply it on my lips.

As you can tell, I love my different shades of MAC pink lipsticks.
