Rihanna has unveiled her 2nd Viva Glam MAC Collab & it’s making us Green with ENVY.



The lipstick is a warm mauve with silver frost & the lipgloss is a cool mauve with red frost

All of the profits from Viva Glam Rihanna II will go to helping women and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.

I recently was introduced to The Buffs collection from Maybelline and I am in love. This collection comes in 10 amazing shades to compliment different skin tones. (925 Maple Kiss is not shown below)

I was able to try out 920 – Nude Lust


The formula for this shade is very rich & creamy and gives off the right amount of light beige color.



Have your tried any of the shades from this collection? If so – what’s your favorite one?

I absolutely will be picking up some more 🙂

I’ve been lusting over ‘Watch Me Simmer’ for so long now. It was a part of the February ’12 CookMAC Special Edition Collection and is long gone from the stores now. I finally found it on Ebay for only slightly higher than retail (which is $14.50) and I knew I had to get it!

Watch Me Simmer is a bright & spicy coral shade with a pink undertone and has a super pigmented finish. It’s the perfect summer shade but I think it’ll transition well into the colder months since it will bring a pop of color to an all black outfit. It’s also very creamy but I still suggest to moisturize before applying.

Excuse the undereye bags… it was a long day at work!


What do you think about this color? My only con with this shade is, if you over apply – your lips will literally glow in the dark by how neon it can be….. therefore, apply with caution!

As with all special edition shades at MAC, once they are gone – good luck trying to find it again. So I did some research and I found a perfect dupe that also is a lot more affordable.

A few weeks ago I wrote a post about how the M∙A∙C + RiRi Collection was coming out and it was released at noon today!


MAC Rihanna Summer Collection

Pictured above, is the collection that was released.


  • RiRi Woo – Matte cool red (retro matte)
  • RiRi Boy – A retro matte version of Up the Amp (retro matte)
  • Heaux – A deep berry (retro matte)
Blush Duo
  • Hibiscus Kiss – Cool Coral/Matte Neutral Bronze
Lustre Drops
  • Barbados Girl – Light golden bronze shimmer

Did you purchase any of the collection? After waiting in que of over an hour, I was lucky enough to score the RiRi Boy! I’m very excited for it to come in and test it out.

This is more than summer love. Rihanna and M∙A∙C strike a chord with an online-exclusive colour collection created by the global superstar. Barbados Girl, Hibiscus Kiss, RiRi Boy, Heaux and the return of RiRi Woo on June 18. The first installment of RiRi Woo SOLD OUT almost instantly so make sure to sign up here to be the first to shop when it returns!
