Release Date + About the Launch
Join the VIVA GLAM movement! This year’s celebration of our iconic giveback program honours Keith Haring’s artistic and philanthropic legacy.
Since 1994, M·A·C VIVA GLAM has raised OVER $500,000,000 globally – and counting! Celebrate 27 years of giving back 100% with three special-edition Lipsticks in Keith Haring’s signature primary colour palette. The artistic parallels between Haring and M·A·C are evident: Haring’s inimitable street pop art sprang into the epicentre of New York’s artistic subculture in the 1980s, right when M·A·C launched as the definitive rule-breaking Artistry brand. It’s our communal belief in equal rights and healthy futures for all that forms the most meaningful message for M·A·C VIVA GLAM x Keith Haring.
“As one of the most disruptive beauty campaigns of all time, M·A·C VIVA GLAM set the standard for giving back within the industry thanks to the support of provocative powerhouse talent, our Artists and community,” says John Demsey, Chairman of the M·A·C VIVA GLAM Fund and Executive Group President, The Estée Lauder Companies Inc. “For our 27th anniversary, we’re thrilled to honour the late iconic artist Keith Haring and carry forward his mission of using his imagery to drive positive change for those most in need of support. He was a true visionary who used his talent for purpose. While he sadly passed during the height of the epidemic, we are so proud that his iconic art and philanthropy lives on through VIVA GLAM.”
“Keith Haring was a good-natured, astute, symbolist artist who drew with the most minimal lines some of the best assets of human nature – symbols that everyone could read,” says Debbie Harry, former M·A·C Cosmetics VIVA GLAM Ambassador. “His optimism and humour were always there in his lines.”
Three special-edition Lipsticks in Keith Haring’s signature primary colour palette in Matte and Frost finishes come together for this year’s VIVA GLAM collection. Each work of pop art is expressed through Keith Haring’s symbolic street-style imagery. 100% of the selling price of VIVA GLAM Lipstick sold in the US is donated to the M·A·C VIVA GLAM Fund, supporting healthy futures and equal rights for all. When you buy any VIVA GLAM Lipstick, 100% of the selling price goes to support local organizations supporting women and girls, the LGBTQIA+ community and people living with or affected by HIV/AIDS.
