Ricky Martin and Nicki Minaj team up for charity

Wednesday February 29, 2012

Ricky Martin has become the first man to sign up for cosmetic company MAC's Viva Glam campaign.

The Livin' La Vida Loca singer has created a clear lipbalm, while Super Bass star Nicki Minaj has designed a new "flamingo pink" lipstick for the range, with proceeds going to the MAC AIDS Fund.

"I'm the first Latin man to be part of the campaign and I hope I'm not the last!" said Ricky.

"The brand has such a rich history of helping those affected by HIV/AIDS globally and I'm proud to now be a part of this movement".

Nicki added: "Our goal is to help reach the 250 million dollar goal for the MAC AIDS Fund by the time of the International AIDS Conference in July 2012 and I have no doubt that the two of us are going to achieve it."

Both new products are available from March 1.
