When it comes to gorgeous lips, don’t compromise shine for colour. Your pout can have it all in a new formula inspired by Asian trends, hugging your lips in hues that stay bright for up to six hours. Huggable Lipcolour provides a lasting, glossy finish that helps boost collagen, leaving lips smooth and sculpted. A unique gel base allows each shade to smooth effortlessly onto the skin, with a feather-light finish giving immediate moisture.

M•A•C Cosmetics is thrilled to announce the next Viva Glam spokesperson: Rihanna. Arriving January 2014.  More information to come as MAC releases official details about the upcoming installment of Viva Glam.

Comments have been turned off on this post. TRIGGER WARNING:  This post has become emotionally triggering for victims and survivors of domestic violence due some comments that seem to misunderstand domestic violence, its cycle, and how complex it can be.  You may want to read more about domestic violence, the cycle of domestic violence, and really, truly understand why victims often return to their abusers and that it can take many attempts to leave before they finally do. You might ask yourself what you would do if your best friend was in an abusive relationship and how your attitude would help or hinder their situation, attempts to leave an abusive situation, and whether your actions give them the vital support they need to finally leave their abuser. We worry for those who return to abusive situations, and it’s OK to think that it isn’t a good idea or to wish that they did not return, but insinuating that they are now deserving of any abuse they get ignores the complexity of relationships in general as well as abusive relationships.
