#BerryAware: @NickiMinaj x @MACCosmetics for World AIDS Day #GetTheLook #BerryBeautyTips
Ever the trendsetter, Ms. Minaj has used her star power to not only look good, but do good. She teamed up with MAC and Ricky Martin to create a special limited edition shade for their Viva Glam collection.
Since today is World AIDS Day, we thought we’d highlight Nicki’s pink lipstick—and let you know what a difference you can make with a tube of lipstick.

Have you and your partner been tested yet? If not, get tested! Love and sex don’t have to be deadly.
As always, prevention is the best cure—make sure your man wraps it up. Carry condoms to be on the safe side; safety first, sex second.
Be bold. Be beautiful. Be safe!
