The Internet is still buzzing about “every insane thing” Miley Cyrus wore as host of yesterday’s MTV VMAs, and perhaps more so about how Nicki Minaj very publicly threw shade at her after her acceptance speech for “Best Hip Hop Video”. There’s a whole debate still ongoing about whether the whole saga was staged or not (supposedly legitimate sources have said that it wasn’t), and as that goes on, people are analysing what all of Cyrus’ antics at the show are really saying about her as a celebrity.
But today, we want to honour Cyrus for some very important causes she stands for. Besides her own Happy Hippie Foundation that supports vulnerable youth from the homeless and LGBTQ communities, she’s the latest face of M.A.C’s VIVA GLAM campaign, which is in support of the M.A.C AIDS Fund that provides funding to organisations working to support those affected by HIV and AIDS. Her first VIVA GLAM collection was launched earlier this year, and now the second collection is about to hit counters this month, this time featuring the iconic VIVA GLAM lipstick and lipglass in a bright orange (the previous edition came in a shocking pink).
We’re glad VIVA GLAM released another fun shade for Cyrus’ campaign, because it’s something we totally can see her wearing. The lipstick is a solid red-toned orange, while the lipglass adds a bit of pearl shimmer to the same shade. And just one of either gets 1 rapid oral HIV test, or 1 pair of shoes for a child orphaned by AIDS, or medicine for 5 newborn babies to prevent transmission of HIV from their mothers (M.A.C donates 100 per cent of the proceeds from the sale price of VIVA GLAM products to their cause). Take this as the best lip colour purchase you can make for this season.
M.A.C VIVA GLAM Miley Cyrus 2 Lipstick and Lipglass, $31 each. Available at all M.A.C stores and counters from 11 Sep. maccosmetics.com.sg
