A Viva Glam Past and Future


It's Viva Glam time again! This year, Rihanna is back with a campaign and hue that reflects her confident and fearless style. The new lipstick is a frosted metallic mauve which may seem unwearable at first but i just love the finish as i swatched it in store. As always, every cent of the selling price of Viva Glam Rihanna goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.

With this, as I researched about Viva Glam, and realized how the brand has been helping a lot of people and doing this by tapping spokesperson that love the LGBT community and want to fight for this case.
