When Puerto-Rican booty-shaker, Ricky Martin, was chosen alongside lipstick loving rapper, Nicki Minaj, to become the new face of Mac Viva Glam 2012, the union caught attention because of its unlikelihood. Now, a first impression of the new lipstick campaign shows the duo looking perfectly matched - playful pop colours and perky poses to boot.
The two pop stars have taken over the reins of spearheading the MAC Aids Fund from their predecessor, Lady Gaga. Past faces of the ongoing and hugely successful fundraiser include Cyndi Lauper, Naomi Campbell, Missy Elliott, Mary J Blige, Christina Aguilera and Fergie. The new role makes a change from pop star Martin's more usual guise. Best known for gyrating to Livin' La Vida Loca, the is credited with bringing Latino music to the world stage. No stranger to MAC products, Nicki Minaj last year collaborated with the make-up brand to launch the ‘Pink Friday’ lip shade. The bright, bubble-gum pink hue is named after the rap artist’s platinum-selling debut album. A runaway success, the limited release Pink Friday lipstick became an instant bestseller. Usually on sale for $14, Pink Friday can be found on offer at eBay for as much as $79!! So get your hand on it before it's sold out!
Nicki's beauty game is out of control here. She's sporting lime green eyeshadow on her upper lid with a bright blue liner underneath. Her nails actually match her dress and makeup for an all-out neon explosion that I can't help but love. Also, I'm really into her imperfectly dyed pastel pink and blonde hair. Did you know 100% of the Viva Glam profits go to support the MAC AIDS fund, so be sure to look out for Ricky and Nicki's products in February 2012!
Mwuah Enjoy your day!!
Love & Peace Xx
