Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper Collaborate on Nonprofit Lipstick Line

It's never surprising when Lady Gaga makes headlines, and given that Cyndi Lauper has been laying down the law on Celebrity Apprentice, it should come as no surprise that she's making headlines with her own ventures outside of the show. According to feministing, Lauper and Gaga teamed up with the MAC AIDS foundation, supported by MAC cosmetics.

A shade of lipstick was designed for each woman, and the proceeds from sales of the shades will go to benefit the organization that supports those affected by AIDS. Lauper and Gaga specifically want to publicize the fact that there are tons of misconceptions about contracting the disease, including that women and "older" people are at a lower risk.
