Nicki Minaj and her Viva Glam lipstick!

First off, WOW. We know Nicki Minaj’s new, simplified style is a very recent change, but staring at Barbz (above) in crimped hair, neon eyeliner and mixed bold prints already feels like forever ago. But wait, let’s give this photo some back story first—Nicki tweeted this pic last night with the caption, “#1 selling viva glam lipstick of all time… thank u for supporting a good cause. mmmuuuaaahhh!!!!” to which we audibly responded, “Say whaaaa?!” In case you forgot, Nicki released TWO bold lipsticks—one bright coral color and a super cool lavender shade with two coinciding campaigns. Her impossible-to-forget debut MAC ad featured Ms. Minaj perched atop a motorcycle in a latex dress (next to a very sweaty Ricky Martin) and the other showed Nicki floating a pool sporting a retro yellow onesie surrounded by giant lipsticks.

We can TOTALLY see why these fun-yet-wearable shades are Viva Glam best sellers, but we’re still kiiind of unclear at the specifics. Is it both colors or one in particular? How does it compare to Lady Gaga’s Viva Glam shades? Does this mean Nicki will make more?! *shrugs* It looks like we may never know ALL the deets, so we’ll have to take her word for it, and, in case you haven’t swiped up either of Nicki’s lip colors yet, you can still purchase them both for $15 over at maccosmetics.com! (And, yes, 100% of the profit goes to helping women, men and children affected by HIV/AIDS.) Tell us, are you surprised that Nicki Minaj’s Viva Glam lipstick is the best-selling of all time?
