This lipgloss from MACs Rihanna viva glam range is described as a blue red lipstick and lipglass. which as I stated in the lipstick post which you can see here is really complimentary to most skin tones and makes teeth appear a lot whiter, than other shades of red.
The lipglass has a cool undertone and a more sheer than opaque frosted finish. I find MAC's lipglosses to be one of the most longwearing lipglosses. This one is not any different and offers the wearer a good length of wear. After 3 hours, your lips are still left with a light rosy pink tint. It took 4 hours to fully disappear from my lips.
I would describe the lipglass as a soft red with hints of red and pink glitter. In some respects its almost like a dark pink shade. The colour reminds me of a berry colour. It's an extremely pretty shade and perfect for adding a bit of glamour to your look.
Even though the lipgloss has a high density of glitter it doesn't have a gritty or bitty feel to it. However it is rather sticky but I think that is one of the reasons it lasts so well.
This lipglass is part of MAC's latest Viva glam collection where all the proceeds are going to help victims and families living with or affected with HIV and AIDS. You can purchase your own here directly from MAC.
Stay tuned for a post with swatches and pictures of the lipglass and lipstick used together. The look is stunning! Which brand of lipgloss do you like the most? Do you prefer lipstick or lipgloss? Let me know all your thoughts by commenting below.
