These Celebrity MAC Viva Glam Ads You Forgot About Are Works of Art

Flossy as hell and for a good cause.

For almost 20 years, MAC’s Viva Glam campaign has been a huge influencer in HIV and AIDs awareness. Celebs, from Fergie to Mary J. Blige, have collaborated with the brand in stunning ads, some promoting their own MAC lip shade and earning every cent which goes straight to the MAC AIDS Fund. The ads will make you feel glam as hell just from looking. Recently, you’ve seen stars like Rihanna and Miley bring the initiative back with their collabs, but let’s not forget about the iconic ones that came before theirs.
