Empire super stars, Jussie Smollett and Taraji P. Henson, are taking on a new business venture together.  An no, it doesn't have anything to do with acting.  According to the latest news the two of them have been named MAC Cosmetics’ new Viva Glam ambassadors. That's right, their endorsing MAC's new lipstick baby and for a wonderful cause too.  Taraji recently posted a couple of pics from their photoshoot on her Instagram page and revealed to fans what her new gig was all about.

Taraji's matte fushia is fire!  Can't wait to get mine and channel my inner Cookie.  Sales from MAC's Viva Glam lipstick will go to benefit the Mac AIDS Fund and the two stars couldn't be happier to be a part of the campaign. Jussie also took Instagram and announced to his 3.6 MILLION followers, “I’m excited to announce @tarajiphenson and I are working with @MACCosmetics on the #VIVAGLAM campaign! @MACcosmetics through the #MacAIDSFund is on a mission to end AIDS and since the 90s, they’ve raised $430 million through the sales of #VivaGlam lip products. Every single cent of the sales of these products help to end HIV/AIDS. I believe that together we can end this epidemic once and for all. Love y’all.”

Now that's what I call using your power!  The folks at MAC revealed, Taraji’s matte fuchsia with pearl Lipstick has a matching shimmery lipgloss.  So far it looks like these are the only two colors being featured in this special campaign.  I can't tell for sure, but judging from my picture it looks like the lipstick case may even be autographed by the two Empire stars.  If it is, that's a nice little touch.  Heads-up the limited Viva Glam rolls out, February 2017.
