MAC‘s Viva Glam lipstick. The unlikely pairing will have their own brands of lipstick – the
Viva Glam Ricky and the
Viva Glam Nicki – available through the range, all profits from which go to help fighting HIV and AIDS. The pop stars take over as the faces of the campaign from current spokesperson,

Pink 4 Friday‘ lip shade, named after her debut album,
Pink Friday, which was launched last year. It proved to be a huge bestseller, and the $14 lipstick now fetches up to $88 on internet auction sites such as eBay. Previous VIVA GLAM spokesmodels including Lady Gaga, Lil’ Kim, Missy Elliott, Eve, Mary J. Blige, Christina Aguilera, and Fergie.
