The MAC Cosmetics AIDS Fund was step up in 1994 and has had celebrity spokespeople such as Fergie, Cyndi Lauper and Lady Gaga. The charity supports men, women and children across the globe who suffer from HIV or AIDS. Every single penny they make goes to help those people.

MAC’s most recent celebrity campaigners are Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin. MAC AIDS Fund says “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.”

So what’s your purchase funding? One lipstick could buy many things, for example 254 condoms to prevent HIV spreading, 2 nights of shelter for a HIV/AIDS suffer who is homeless, 1 rapid oral HIV test or 4 HIV tests for new born babies.

So help out a good cause and look good at the same time; buy a lip product from Viva Glam at MAC.

Both lipstick and conditioner are on sale for £13.50 in the UK from early March and available at or MAC counters or concessions.
