Disclaimer: I do not own the photos My heart skipped a beat today when I read that my favorite actress has collaborated with Mac Cosmetics to bring a part two to us and expand the Viva Glam family. If you are not familiar with Mac Cosmetics Viva Glam line, it's a charity line dedicated to help bring shelter, food, clothing,and medicine to men, women, and children affected with the H.I.V and/or Aids virus. 100% of the proceeds goes to the Mac AIDS fund. The collection will feature a sexy copper lipstick and a beautiful goldish bronze lip glass perfect for medium to deep skin tones. The lipstick and lip glass will hit stores in the U.S September 7th!!! Will you be adding them to your collection?? Ps. Keep in mind like all Viva Glam lipsticks and lip glasses they are limited edition, When Mac partners to bring a new Viva Glam lipstick and lip glass the older ones become discontinued so if you loved Taraji's first Viva Glam collaboration stick up before it's gone forever!!!
Rihanna is turning everything she touches into platinum, from her dance hall, butt shaking music to her incredible stand out clothing line and collaborations, so it's no surprise when her cosmetic line becomes the most sought after line to drop.
A few years ago, Ms. Bad Gal RiRi collaborated with Mac Cosmetics and dropped a three part collection titled "RiRi Hearts Mac". The line featured some lipsticks, eye shadows, a liner, etc. The line sold out immediately. I was lucky to get all the lipsticks in the collection, which included the most popular "RiRi Woo" which was an identical match to "Ruby Woo" which is Mac's best selling matte lipstick to date. Rihanna ended her infamous collaboration with Mac by dropping not one, but two Viva Glam RiRi lipsticks and lip glosses respectively. So, it was no surprise last year when Rihanna stated she was going to drop her own Beauty line called "Fenty Beauty" named after her Brand. The question everyone or rather every fan, Makeup Artist such as myself, and beauty junkie wanted answered was when? When will this collection drop?? Well, you are in luck, if you follow Rihanna on instagram @ badgalriri or any of her handles then you have already gotten your answer.
The Fenty Beauty line is set to finally drop September 8,2017 at your nearest Sephora and Harvey Nichols!!! Though there are no photos of products yet, fans can expect nothing but true Rihanna style!! I am guessing this line will stand out, duh this is Rihanna's line!!! I am hoping that her lipsticks from Mac drop in this collection since this was the most anticipated collaboration ever!!!
I can not wait to see the line and hopefully the collection will come to my local Sephora since I literally live across the street from my local Sephora and will be there very early.
Tell me what you guys think the collection look like. I predict beautiful, bright, Caribbean colors, what you think???
How was everyone Valentine’s Day? I am single so I had a wonderful galentines day complete with a nice dinner and some wonderful gifts. I received the Viva Glam Taraji P. Henson lipstick and lipglass by Mac Cosmetics..I was super surprised it was on my wishlist. Before I get into my first impression, I want to remind you that every purchase of this lipstick or any other Viva Glam lipstick or lipgloss or glass goes to the Mac Aids Fund which helps with medicine, food, clothes etc for men, women,and children affected by the HIV or Aids virus.
Viva glam Taraji is a matte, pinkish red lipstick that compliments every skintone. I am a yellow undertone so it shows up on me as a reddish pink.
My first impression is i like it. I have not worn the lipstick alone, for Valentine’s look i decided to pair them together.
The lip glass is also a pinkish red that compliments every skintone. The lipglass has a sort of glittery undertone to it that makes it fun to wear. I think both would do good on their own but great together.
The lipstick was definitely long lasting i wore it for like 4 to 6 hours. I will definitely do another look for my YouTube video so be on the look out!
Dupes for the lipstick is
💋Wet n Wild “Cherry Picking” which is also matte but slightly darker
💋Revlon Cosmetics “Cherries In The Snow” which is a creme. I don’t know if Revlon still sells this lipstick though. The Wet n Wild one is a permanent among their line. “Cherries In The Snow” is also tad darker
I don’t wear lipglosses as much I am not a fan so i can’t give you any dupes but I would start with the Wet n Wild line first.

Well I wanted to update you on these Wet n Wild limited edition lipsticks from their “Into The Wild” collection, that I found at my local Rite Aid for $1.99 each. I must say after I finally gotten around to lip searching I found that they dupe Mac lipsticks and I was completely bamboozled none of the lipsticks in my NEW opinion look like the permanent lipsticks. So without further ado I will release my opinion of the dupes:
1. ” On The Ave.” = Mac’s “Good Kisser” ( limited edition)
2. “Coffee Buzz” = Mac’s ” Photo”
3. “Vintage Vibe” = Mac’s “Rebel”
4. “NightCap” = I couldn’t think of a dupe but I will say this was NOT a Halloween release this lipstick is actually brown yes brown as I put it on my lips I saw that WnW pulled a Mac on us it looks one color but ends up another!!
5. “PhotoBomb” = Mac’s ” Nightmoth lipliner” so this would be the perfect lip combo
Yes beauties WnW pulled a Mac the colors are definitely different when you put them on. You won’t find these in the permanent lipstick section so if you have too please buy because they are limited edition. #TBB
Mac has got some releases for us. First, ” Heaux” from the “Riri Hearts Mac” collection released about two years ago. Except this “Heaux” is not matte,like previously, it will return in an amplified version. We will see its been long asked for a return how will mac lovers embrace the new heaux? We will see. Its set to release soon online a date will be put on my blog soon
We now have a look at Viva Glam Miley 2. Isn’t she pretty? I’m hearing its set to release online next month no word of a store release but I will come back and update. Remember Mac gives all the proceeds to Viva Glam to their Mac Aids Fund which helps men,women,and children whom suffers with Aids and HIV with medicine,food, shelter,and clothing. So with a purchase of Viva Glam you are contributing to a great cause.
Hi beauties thought I would share a fall trend alert with you. If you are on Instagram follow Mac Cosmetics and Trendmood1 to stay up to date with all beauty brands and of course I will keep you in the know as well 😁😁😁
I first must say, I do not know whom Brooke Candy is and I apologize,but I will say her lipstick plus her two collection with Mac has peeked my interest. This dark,berryish lipstick will be in my collection. From the picture it reminds me of instigator,rebel,film noir, etc, and any other dark,goth lipstick,but it has peeked my interest and I must have it. I cannot wait to see what else is in the collection and share it and of course when I do buy I will give my complete and honest opinion
