Last year, MAC announced that Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin would team up for its 2012 MAC Viva Glam campaign and now the new collection is almost upon us. Both will be promoting a pair of products that will nourish and add some oomph to your lips.
Minaj fans can be as bold as the "Super Bass" singer with a new lipstick in her trademark hot pink tone. The shade has a yellow tint to it and comes in a satin finish, and to ensure that those puckers stay in top shape, try using Martin's colorless lip conditioner. It moisturizes your lips and creates a soft base for lipsticks.
Nicki, whose second album, Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, is set to drop in April, is clearly having a blast with her new side gigs. Not only is this the rapper's second collaboration with MAC, but her six-shade nail lacquer collection with OPI was released last month as well. On top of that, she's thinking about creating her own line of clothes and covers this month's Wonderland magazine.
Viva Glam Nicki Lipstick ($14.50) and the clear Lip Conditioner ($15) will hit shelves Feb. 15 with 100 percent of proceeds from sales going towards the MAC AIDS fund, which helps those living with HIV/AIDS.
