We first told you about Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin’s collaboration for MAC Cosmetics over the summer and now we’ve got a first look at their campaign.
The two stars are the faces of MAC’s “Viva Glam 2012” campaign that supports HIV and AIDS-related charities through sales of its cosmetics. The two were shot by celebrity photographer David LaChapelle (who’s directed videos for Mariah Carey and Rihanna) and his colourful and playful style is in full display.
Nicki rocks her signature pink colour with bright pink lips, a slinky pink dress and bubblegum pink hair. Ricky, meantime, shows off his muscles and tattoos while holding onto a giant tube of lipstick. It’s fun and over-the-top and definitely catches our attention!
The two pop stars have taken over the MAC Campaign from Lady Gaga, who was the face of MAC last year. Other celebrities involved with the campaign have included everyone from Elton John to Christina Aguilera.
The $14 lipsticks, dubbed Viva Glam Ricky and Viva Glam Nicki, will go on sale in February.
