Award-winning singer Mary J Blige is celebrating the 25th anniversary of her groundbreaking album “My Life” with a limited edition lipstick meant to embody self-empowerment, joy and love for life. It’s called MAC Love Me Lipstick and it is in French Silk, a soft nude colour that balances brown, peach, and pink undertones. The lighter-than-air texture redefines comfort and delivers intense colour, soft shine and all-day moisture.
“I love a nude lip because it’s just effortless and it doesn’t fight with everything that’s going on,” says Blige. “Even if you are all glammed up, there’s something about a neutral lip that makes you look younger.” The collector lipstick comes in a special nude and black gradient packaging that commemorates My Life and features Blige’s signature.
“MAC and I have always had a supportive relationship, and we’ve both always been vocal about the issues and beliefs that we stand by, including our similar, steadfast positions on inclusivity, diversity and women’s empowerment. I still remember the first time I was a VIVA GLAM ambassador in 2000 and then again in 2002. I chose to partner with VIVA GLAM because of its mission to bring awareness of HIV/AIDS in an altruistic way. This year marks a huge milestone of 25 years for both of us: For me, the 25th anniversary of My Life and for MAC, the 25th anniversary of VIVA GLAM – so it was a great time to come together again.”
