Gaga and Lauper join the list of famous singers who’ve already worked on the absolutely amazing Viva Glam campaign. Fergie, Christina Aguilera, Eve, Mary J. Blige and Lil’ Kim have all helped sell the lipstick line, which MAC started in 1994, donating every dollar (seriously, every single dollar) of its sales to help men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS. To date, MAC Aids Fund has raised over $150 million for the cause.
A limited edition VIVA GLAM Lipstick named after celebrity spokesperson Lady Gaga. Features a high lustre finish and cool blue-pink shade. A true superstar, Lady’s Gaga’s shock-art approach to performance turns our heads and makes us all go gaga. An enfant terrible who grew up singing Cyndi Lauper songs, performing was in her DNA. By her teens, she was singing self-penned electro pop in New York’s Lower East Side. Today, aided by hit records, headpieces and countless accolades, her worldwide breakthrough has brought her well-deserved notoriety, but also the ability to cock our ears. A legend in her own time whose shock value now comes with a couture tag, she jokes about “changing the world one sequin at a time.” With the launch of VIVA GLAM Gaga, that could be one shade at a time. Her take on HIV/AIDS prevention: Be selective about those you love.
A limited edition VIVA GLAM Lipstick named after celebrity spokesperson, Cyndi Lauper. Features a high-lustre finish and a light coral-red colour. Lauded, loved, copied, passionately acclaimed, the idol of all those for whom a quirky idiosyncrasy in makeup, hair, or style may say it all, this uber-talented performer has never been a copycat, always been a muse. A singer/songwriter, Lauper characteristically uses her fame as a performer to help make her message heard. Whether touring the country to assist food banks or helming the True Colors Fund, which lobbies for GLBT equality, Lauper stands for what she believes in and, when it comes to HIV/AIDS, that’s safe sex. With the launch of VIVA GLAM Cyndi, she looks forward to helping support women who have contracted HIV/AIDS through rape.
How’s that for beauty that gives back? Personally, I’m loving Viva Glam Gaga because I’m a huge fan of the mod look, but I didn’t get either one because I’ve already got multiple dupes of both. Were you one of the lucky few that managed to grab one or better yet both of these pretty, limited edition lipsticks before they ran out of stock?
