MAC Cosmetics giant announced that the rapper’s lipstick shade, Nicki, is the Viva Glam range’s best seller.  As a MAC lover, I can honestly say that I have never bought that shade.  I got dangerously close though.  The Viva Glam range gives all the money it receives from its sales to men, women and children living with HIV and AIDS.

She tweeted this photo with this message: #1 selling viva glam lipstick of all time… thank u for supporting a good cause. mmmuuuaaahhh!!!!”

The Hip Hop princess is known for the “Barb” look which is crazy wigs and brightly coloured makeup.  Earlier this month Nicki told MTV in an interview that she wanted to tone down her image.  The star talked about doing magazine covers and wanting other women to see that she is “just a regular woman and not some not some weirded-out character all the time.”

Her dramatically different appearance on the cover of Elle Magazine’s April issue shocked many of her fans, including Nicki!

“When I saw myself with barely any makeup, it was such a… like, I’m so, so attached to my pink lipstick, it’s hard.  I feel that it’s become a part of me.  To go in front of the camera, without pink lips or big ol’ crazy lashes— you know, nothing— I felt naked.  It was scary!  So this photo shoot was a real accomplishment in my eyes.”
