MAC Keepsakes: Rihanna Viva Glamorous Lipsticks

I love Rihanna so when this holiday kit launched I had to have it. Mainly for Rihanna Viva Glam II lipstick, I love bold lip colors and this lipstick is so different and I dig it.

These two lipsticks come in a red glitter bag, it is really cute and I'm definitely going to use it as a makeup bag.

 Rihanna Viva Glam is described as a frosty blue red but on me it looks orangey-red. It took 3 swipes to get this pigmentation.

Rihanna VG II is described as a frosty warm mauvey silver. On me it looks mauvey-grey (I applied about 3 swipes) but on other ladies it looks much more grey or brownish-grey. I think this lippie would look fantastic on WOC because it shows up brownish-grey and it looks beautiful on them. This lipstick would look fab paired with Warm Soul blush and a gold eye. The cool thing about this lipstick is that you can pair it with different lipliners and get a different color. I'm planning on using a brown and dark purple lipliner with it.

I got 3 hours of wear with these lipsticks and they do not feel drying at all. However, they transfer so you do have to retouch after eating.
It is so obvious that I love VG II and it's the only reason why I picked this up. I purchased this for $30 and it is a great deal because each lipstick is $16 and plus you get a cool makeup bag for free. Oh, and every cent goes towards helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS!

What do you think?
