The Original MAC Viva Glam Returns

MAC Viva Glam Rupal 20131

You better werk! RuPaul, the original face of Viva Glam, has returned to MAC… and she brought the deep red Viva Glam I with her!

I think Viva Glam V might be my favorite of the Vivas, but there is no denying that the first Viva Glam shade, originally released in 1994, is a makeup kit staple.

The burgundy hue is available in traditional lipstick form and now also in a lipglass – both of which are perfect for fall. Each of the intense brownish blue-red lippies is priced at $15.

MAC Viva Glam RuPaul 2013

The best part? For the past 19 years, every cent of the selling price of these Viva Glam products has been donated to men, women, and children who are living with or affected by HIV/AIDS. Cheers to glamour for a good cause!

MAC Launches RiRi Woo on Thursday

ririThe much anticipated RiRi ♥ MAC collection is almost here! First up in the creative collaboration between pop superstar Rihanna and MAC Cosmetics is RiRi Woo, Rihanna’s remixed version of the cult classic lipstick Ruby Woo. RiRi’s take on the matte retro shade, a bluer red, will launch officially on Thursday. Get your e-shopping selves ready ladies, I have a feeling this one is going to sell out quickly! RiRi’s lippy will run for 15 bucks and will be on sale exclusively online and at the MAC pop-up store at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY (for ticket holders of Rihanna’s Summer World Tour shows there this weekend).
