Nothing kicks up a stir in the beauty world quite like a new MAC release, and Nicki Minaj’s latest Viva Glam lipstick is certainly no exception.
The RRP from all MAC Viva Glam lipsticks sold is paid to the MAC Aids Fund, a charity set up to help men, women and children from all over the world that are affected by AIDS and HIV. To date the fund has raised over $224,000 thanks to the popularity of these lippies!
Nicky Minaj is just one of many celebs that has collaborated with Mac for The Viva Glam range , with past campaigns including Cyndi Lauper, Lady Gaga and the most recent addition to the clan, Ricky Martin.
But we do love Nicki and suggest you check it out too! The hip hop princess’ first lipstick, Viva Glam Nicki (a bright coral toned pink), created quite the stir upon its release, and the second instalment to her collection is already following in its footsteps. Viva Glam Nicki 2 is a cool pastel lavender colour and, like its predecessor, it’s the kind of show stopping shade Nicki herself loves to sport.
A complimenting ‘lipglass’ in the same cool lavender hue has been released alongside the lipstick as part of the Viva Glam range, so you can pair the two in a true homage to Minaj or tone things down a little by wearing them separately.
As with virtually all MAC lip products, you can consider yourself assured that the quality is impeccable and both of Nicki’s latest offerings apply like a dream.
So, with Viva Glam Nicki 2 you can channel her Minajesty whilst feeling good about the fact that your hard earned cash is going to a good cause. As if you really needed an excuse to add another lippie to your collection anyway…
Get it: Both Viva Glam Nicki and Viva Glam Nicki 2 lipsticks and lipglasses can be purchased from www.maccosmetics.co.uk or from MAC counters and stores. The lipsticks are priced at £14 and the lipglasses at £13.50.
