Get a First Look at Rihanna’s New MAC Collection
The first time Rihanna released a signature lipstick shade for MAC’s Viva Glam campaign, her color of choice was a crisp, modern red. But for the singer’s follow-up collaboration with the mega makeup brand, she’s slinging much more of a throwback shade. And no, we don’t mean the DayGlo green ‘do RiR’s wearing in the promo photo — we’re talking about the frosty coco lip.
Set for release on September 11 in MAC boutiques and online, the second installation of Viva Glam Rihanna will feature a metallic mauve lipstick and glittery Lipglass. That pretty much means the ‘90s beauty revival will officially hit the masses this fall.
While Rihanna’s neutral pick is unexpected, the bronzy hue has real potential to look polished and fresh in this decade. As The Cut points out, Viva Glam Rihanna 2 *could* come across looking as glamorous as Lupita Nyong’o’s raisin-y red carpet lip… or be ready to embrace the Rachel Green comparisons for maybe the second time in your life (we’re not telling if we actually donned “The Rachel” haircut in our teen years). If you ask us, that’s a beauty risk worth taking, especially since your decision to give the neo-nude lip color a spin does some real good — 100% of the proceeds from Viva Glam lipstick sales will go toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS. So sign us up to rock the RiRi-approved color and support the cause!
