Cyndi Lauper loves bold lipstick

Cyndi Lauper says her favourite lipstick is "Russian Red".

The American singer has recently collaborated with Lady Gaga on the Mac Viva Glam Campaign. It is the company's lipstick line that donates full proceeds to the Mac AIDS Fund, a charity which both singers' are proud to support.

Cyndi loves to play with bold lipstick colours and even layers them up to create different tones.

"I love Russian Red, but that Viva Glam lipstick that I had out... if you put it over the Russian Red, it has a lot of depth and changes," she told

"I'm wearing that today, that alone is a good colour. But that Russian Red, I've had with me since 1986."

The star believes that lipstick is a good way to remind young girls about the dangers of HIV/AIDS.

Cyndi is also a mother and she stressed the importance that parents play in informing their kids about safe practices.

She was touched by Lady Gaga's attitude towards the project.

"I thought the most moving thing I heard her say was that, as a mother, you could give your girl a Viva Glam lipstick and with it, the message and reminder that every time she puts it on to go out, be protected. And I thought, 'That's wonderful to say,'" she gushed.
