Ariana Grande Viva Glam 2016

Ariana Grande Stands Up For Feminism, Makes You Fall in Love With Her

Ariana Grande is, arguably, one of the most talented performers in the entertainment industry. She acts, she dances, and she can sing her tail off — her impressions of both Christina Aguilera and Céline Dion made the internet explode, and she's the only other singer out there who has attempted to sing a Mariah Carey song and knocked it out of the park. (Those whistle notes are unbelievable.)

Ariana is the face of MAC's Viva Glam campaign, a cause Ariana is excited to be a part of. "I fell in love with the brand at a young age," said Grande. "All of the money made from the lipsticks and the glosses goes towards people affected by HIV/AIDS, and that's a big thing. A lot of brands will give a percentage, or a 'proceeds to go this cause,' but this is all of the money. Every penny made."

Trust me, you'll feel great about purchasing the lipstick — a deep, vampy plum — and the gloss, a subtle shimmer shade that can be layered over other shades. Knowing that purchasing both will help someone in need makes treating yourself extra special.

I spent some time talking to Ariana about makeup and beauty, but also discussed her infamous Twitter rant about the double standards women are held to. Her views on feminism and women's equality will have you hitting whistle notes of your own — if not voting for her in the 2020 presidential election.

Check out the full interview, then let us know which product you prefer: the lipstick? Or the gloss? Ariana's lipstick and gloss will be available online on Jan. 13 and in stores on Jan. 21.
