"#VIVAGLAM @maccosmetics I am beyond honored and excited to be working with a brand that stands for and always has stood for EQUALITY," she writes on Instagram.com. "My lipstick & gloss will be available in January and EVERY PENNY goes to people effected (sic) by HIV & AIDS. I have loved & supported @maccosmetics ever since I was a little girl walking through the mall and saw your first #VIVAGLAM girl in the window... I'm so honored!!!"


Ariana further emphasised in another post she is not taking any proceeds whatsoever from her appearance in the campaign, writing, "Did I mention everyyyyy. penny. goes to people affected by HIV & AIDS. @maccosmetics ? #VIVAGLAM (sic)".


MAC bosses confirmed the news on their own Instagram page, with the company revealing the new lipsticks and glosses will be available for sale in January (16).
