MAC 2012 Viva Glam Spokespersons Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin

The MAC AIDS Fund announces Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin as its newest spokespersons to represent the 2012 VIVA GLAM campaign launching in February 2012. The two are on a set in Miami today shooting the campaign visuals with David La Chappelle.

To date the fund has raised $224 Million exclusively through the sale of its VIVA GLAM lip products donating 100 percent of the sale price to fight HIV/AIDS.

What do you think of the newest spokespersons?

Who would you choose to represent the MAC Aids Fund?


About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Interesting choice. I’d have to wait for further updates on this project

  • Cj

    While I do like Nicki Minaj… I’d like Lady Gaga another year more lol!

  • Tammie

    I LOVE Nicki Minaj! I like Ricky Martin too, so I can’t complain although they are an interesting pair that’s for sure. They are certainly both glam though 🙂

  • Jess

    I think Ricky Martin is a good choice, not so much on Nicki Minaj.

    She doesn’t seem like the best spokesperson from what I’ve seen in interviews and such. I don’t like her much. But I love Ricky Martin lol

    I think Ricky will be great but not so sure about Nicki…..i mean they already did her pink friday lipstick so i wonder if MAC will re-promote the same shade or hopefully something new? They are a weird pair but it could work 🙂

      josie at first I didn’t even know who nicki was during her pink friday promo….! haha!

  • Cathryn

    Ricky Martin??? Uh, this better be awesome. Honestly though, even if they made some boring old beige lipstick for Ricky I think I’d still buy it. Just because it’s Ricky Martin.

    Man, I remember back when Livin’ La Vida Loca was the in thing…and when my grandmother had a huge crush on him XD

  • Dana

    Wasn’t Johnny Weir supposed to be a spokesman for something?? I thought it was this.

  • Liz!

    I like Nicki, but I’ll miss Gaga! I’m kinda meh about Ricky Martin…..I think Gaga and Nicki would have been a good pair 😀

  • Heather H.

    Don’t mind Ricky Martin as much but… Do. Not. Want. Nicki Minaj. That pink friday was awful. Too much like the first gaga glam but in satin. And I hate satin finish. Gaga’s was better.

    Ricky broke my heart when he came out. Not that I stand any chance of being with him if he is straight, LOL.

    But interesting that they chose him. 🙂 I like.

    Both sound all ok to me !
    All in a good cause.
