A product that has been dear to me throughout my career is definitely MAC Viva Glam Lipsticks and Lipglosses. MAC has raised more than $400 million dollars for the MAC Aids fund selling lipsticks, lipglosses, and lip kits since 1994.
Viva Glam has been endorsed by amazing personalities, Ru Paul, Lady Gaga, Elton John, Debbie Harry, Boy George, Cyndi Lauper, Nicki Minaj, Ricky Martin, Christina Aguilera, Dita Von Teese, Shirley Manson, Mary J Blige, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande, Taraji P. Henson and most recently Sia.
100% of the purchase price of any VIVA GLAM product goes toward the M·A·C AIDS Fund . The M·A·C AIDS Fund itself is a pioneer in HIV/AIDS funding, providing financial support and awareness to organizations working with underserved regions and populations. One of the most impressive things is that they work with local communities around the globe where the lipsticks are sold.
The years I worked for MAC I was actively a VIVA GLAM Ambassador, every lipstick we sold reminded us of the huge impact that one small action could do. For example, one lipstick could pay for a month supply of vitamins for an HIV+ person, or about 254 condoms, or 1 CD4 test.
Beauty with a purpose is always something I am very excited about, that's why VIVA GLAM is always a product dear to my heart. Thanks, MAC for teaching me that we could save the world one lipstick at a time!
