The fearless Ricky Martin and Nicki Minaj introduce Nicki’s lipstick in a scene-stealing pink and Ricky’s colourless Lip Conditioner in a Tube that goes from day to dance floor! With every cent of the selling price supporting the MAC AIDS Fund, it doesn’t get any hotter. They’ve teamed up to raise HIV/AIDS awareness among young people around the globe. Nicki and Ricky dare you to be bold. Be beautiful. Be safe.

I didn’t bother with the colorless lip conditioner (sorry, Ricky) because it’s easily dupe-able from any relatively cheaper drugstore brand. Instead, I purchased both the lipstick and lipglass because I’m still on the hunt for the perfect pink lippy and from the description, which classifies the lipstick as a yellow pink (and apparently I need to have all the yellow pinks in the world). Honestly though I find myself gravitating more towards yellow pinks as opposed to blue pinks because I’m sick of pinks turning fuchsia, or purple on me, instead of the beautiful pinks that they appear to be, in the tube. Also, I like Nicki Minaj. I enjoy her sense of style (although I’d never dare to try pulling any of it off) almost as much as I enjoy her music!
I’ve swatched the lipstick on top and the lipglass on the bottom. The color is beautiful. There’s no arguing that. The lipstick slightly pulls blue on me making this yet another purple-y pink but a slick of the lipglass warms it right back up to a coral-y pink. They both smell like vanilla like most of MAC’s lip products. The lipstick is quite drying and emphasizes any imperfections on the lips. The lipglass is just as sticky as all the other lipglasses I’ve tried from MAC. I love the shade, but I’m not a fan of the texture. I’m not really sure how to explain it but the lipstick doesn’t feel comfortable on the lips at all and as I’ve said before, it’s quite drying.
