Ever since 2014 when MAC released the Viva Glam Rihanna I have been hooked and purchasing every collaboration since. The Viva Glam lipsticks and lipglasses are released twice a year, once in the beginning of year like around January and another toward the end of the year like September. The colors have not disappointed me thusfar. With that being said, when I heard that MAC’s spokesperson (each year it changes) for this year was Taraji P. Henson I had to snatch up both the lipstick and lipglass as soon as I could. Not only because that’s my girl, been loving her ever since the Baby Boy days, but also because the purchase of the Viva Glam collab goes to a great cause! 100% of the proceeds when you purchase the lipstick or lipglass goes to help with women, men, and children living and affected by HIV/AIDS. I love shopping for a cause, not only am I getting a great product, but I am also giving to charity. Literally a win-win!
Like I said, I purchased both lipstick and lipglass. I love pinks and this fuchsia color is right up my alley! The Viva Glam Taraji P. Henson lipstick has matte finish and while the lipglass is bold and shimmery. Let’s take a look shall we!
I can’t wait to see what she color she comes out with during the fall launched! The lipstick felt comfortable on my lips and was not as drying or uncomfortable as some mattes and even retro mattes I have tried in the past. Although I am not a fan of the stickiness that the lipglass can bring, the color is awesome and it’s all for a good cause so no complaints there! MAC did an amazing job picking Taraji P. Henson as their spokesperson this year…I loving it!! Both the lipstick and lipglass are available on MAC’s website. Have you tried them yet? What are your thoughts?
