Apart from the pigments, I think my love affair with MAC really began with the VIVA GLAM lipsticks. I thought that as a student (back in 2000), it was my little “do good” thing every December. Now that education concerning HIV and AID’s far more available, every chance I get, I show my support towards the MAC AIDS Fund (MAF) and VIVA GLAM product lines. Since 1994, the MAC Aids Fund has raised $300 million exclusively through your support whenever you purchase a VIVA GLAM Lipstick and Lipglass since they donate 100% of the sales price to support causes that endeavor to fight HIV/AIDS.
In the Philippines, the MAF has partnered with Positive Action Foundation Philippines Inc. (PAFPI). Now on their fourth year as partners, MAC has committed another grant of Php 2,494,000 support PAFPI’s programs that aim to support recovery and ingrain the essential knowledge in infected individuals. Wow. Just wow! :)
Typing the text above has made my heart bob up and down because I know that YOU can help this cause as well. Taking the whole “do good, feel good” mantra a notch higher, supporting this cause will also well, make YOU look good. As mentioned, by restocking or having your first VIVA GLAM lip product will go a long, long way. Now with two formulas and multiple hues, there’s definitely a VIVA GLAM for all of us. For starters, you can’t go wrong with the original — VIVA GLAM 1.
The original VIVA GLAM girl is back! Fabulous, chic and utterly outrageous. The electric RuPaul, first face of VIVA GLAM in 1994, now returns with her sexy signature burgundy red Lipstick and a new Lipglass, universal in glamour and appeal. Every cent of the selling price of VIVA GLAM – The Original goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.
