Nicki Minaj and Ricky Martin are the new faces of MAC cosmetics Viva Glam 2012 line.

The music duo have been chosen to become the brand’s spokespeople for the annual campaign, where 100% of the sale price of each product is donated to help fight HIV and AIDS.

Sales of the limited-edition Viva Glam lip shades have raised US$224million over the years for MAC’s AIDS fund, which was established in 1994.

This year’s US$14 lipsticks, Viva Glam Ricky and Viva Glam Nicki, will go on sale in February.

The two pop stars are being shot for the popular campaign in Miami today by acclaimed fashion photographer David LaChapelle.

Nicki and Ricky will take over the MAC Aids Fund from current spokesperson and outlandish style icon Lady Gaga.

Past faces include Naomi Campbell, Christina Aguilera and Fergie. Ricky, 39, is the third male to be invited to star in the campaign, joining pop royalty Sir Elton John and Boy George.© COVER MEDIA
