M.A.C. Mineralize Rich Lipstick

The mummy blogger continues to explore MAC lipsticks…

My first MAC lipstick, Rihanna Viva Glam, proved to be a successful trial and this lipstick has now become one of the must-have items in my everyday makeup kit. And it has triggered a strong desire for me to keep exploring lip colors!


MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick – Bold Spring

I was looking for a color that has strong pink tone and MAC’s beauty advisor recommended this one to me. I haven’t seen this one before and the MAC girl told me it’s a new collection — Mineralize Rich Lipstick.


MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick – Bold Spring (RM88)

The color I picked (or recommended to me) was Bold Spring. This shade, as the color name implies, has a bold pink color that oozes with freshness, like a fresh flower in full bloom.

It comes in a tube that’s different from the basic bullet-like MAC lipstick. An interesting character of this tube is it’s magnetic closure instead of the click clasp of traditional lip tubes. I love the contrast of shiny black base against the matte black cap. The box follows the normal MAC lipstick box of plain black with white text. Price is higher than the standard lipstick. This MAC Mineralize Rich Lipstick is at RM88 for 0.12 oz (vs RM68 basic MAC lipstick).


Here’s a look at 1-3-5 swipes against my skin. The color is not as buildable as my MAC Rihanna Viva Glam Red but 3 swipes will be good enough to have that bold pink effect on my lips. The texture is great; I love how it glides on the lips plus it has hydrating/ moisturizing benefits, too.

The color is simply glam but sweet. I love how I feel when wearing this — like a sweet lady in fresh bloom.

Really loving my MAC lipsticks. Hmmm, wouldn’t it be nice to collect more from MAC lipstick palettes? Look at all those colors! Better save up for more of these!

Ooooohhh, MAC lipsticks!

M.A.C. Rihanna Viva Glam Red Lipstick

This will be shocking for a lot of women who love M.A.C. Cosmetics…but I haven’t tried or purchased any M.A.C. Lipstick until now. I have a few MAC brushes but I guess I didn’t pay much attention to lip color before. I only have 2 or 3 shades and that’s it. Those colors will last for the year. 
I’ve been interested in exploring lip colors recently and have been trying different brands as well. While reading my monthly copy of Women’s Weekly, I came across MAC Viva Glam Rihanna collection. The color is incredibly striking, beautifully furious. I was captivated and I knew I gotta have one.
So, yes, I explored it at the MAC boutique during one of my visits to Pavilion. I loved it.

M.A.C. Rihanna Viva Glam Lipstick – RM68 for 3g

The lipstick tube is in a sexy red color with matte finish. With the cap off, the tube features Rihanna’s signature in red color against black.

The box is adorned with Rihanna’s signature in metallic red against MAC’s standard black packaging. Truly a celebrity style. Though, of course, we’re not going to use the box, I like that the brand paid attention to it and incorporated the signature.


M.A.C. Lipsticks – Rihanna Viva Glam and Matte Lipstick

The lipstick is using the exact shape and size of the standard MAC lipsticks in the same bullet-like casing. And another good similar thing, MAC Viva Glam Rihanna has the same price as the other MAC lipstick at RM68.

The texture of this lipstick is beautiful. It glides smoothly on the lips and has a buildable finish. You can start with lighter red color or swipe a few times until you have that ‘Rihanna’ red effect on your lips. I swipe around three times until I reach that deep red color since that is the shade that I fell in love with in the first place. This Viva Glam item is a frost lipstick so it has that light shimmer finish. Here’s a closer look:

The color is just so defined and creates an immediate impact to my makeup look. You can probably get away with having very simple eye makeup or no makeup at all then just swipe this MAC Viva Glam lipstick and you already have a fashion/ makeup statement. Oh, that red, red lipstick is to die for.

Love, love this MAC lipstick and I’m predicting I’ll have a few more. In fact, I bought this item together with a MAC Matte Lipstick in another deep red shade.
