Mac Rihanna Christmas Set || Review

As I was picking up the Mac Christmas Set: Objects of Affection Rose, I spotted the Rihanna lipstick set and bag and had to swatch the colors. Now, I wasn't expecting to like the two lipsticks but after swatching them I did. At that point I was on a mission to find dupes for the two lipsticks, and after much searching I couldn't find anything. So there was only one option, buy the set, the set was a cheaper way to buy the two lipsticks together rather then buying them separately. 

Now the actually bag it came with was very naff and cheap looking, which is a little disappointing as it was a Mac set. The bag was covered in chunky red glitter and there were horrible cheap plastic red pearls on the edge of the zip line. Very tacky and not good at all, but inside the bag were the two lipsticks. These lipsticks are both frosts by Mac, which means that they have a shine or shimmer to them and these guys have a shimmer to them. The shades are Viva Glam 1 and Viva Glam 2 , They are very unique to me as they have such a specific shimmer to them that I can't find anything similar.

The packaging of the lipsticks are matte red, which almost look like velvet. They both have the iconic Mac lipstick smell and the professional look. The colors are brown (2) and red (1), they are very creamy and easy to apply, but the brown shade for my skin tone can look a bit over the top if applied to heavy. The brown shade does feel a little gritty when applying it though once on it feels great. The color pay off is unreal and the color does last fairly long though there is transfer of the lipsticks when kissing, eating and drinking.

I love these lipsticks in my collection, and can't wait to pick up the Miley Cyrus Viva Glam lipstick.
