MAC Viva Glam Rihanna

Unsurprisingly Viva Glam Rihanna is red and most likely matte!

Now I like a red lipstick as much as the next person but I truly don't understand why MAC seems to be pushing red and Rihanna lately? Unlike the likes of Gwen Stefani et al I don't deem Rihanna to have a signature red pout. As a matter of a fact I see Rihanna as a champion of the darker berry and on occasion black toned lipsticks.

Please don't get me wrong the cause that Viva Glam supports is very worthy indeed but it does seem a little lack lustre this year. On the plus side the packaging is lovely and I'm sure it will fly out of stores regardless.
MAC Viva Glam Rihanna will launch this coming January.

Thank you to Sophie for drawing my attention to the image :)
