Viva Glam is expanding its Empire with two new faces.

MAC Cosmetics has found Viva Glam's newest ambassadors in Taraji P. Henson and Jussie Smollett -- and to say the Empire stars slayed their campaign ad would be an understatement.

The co-stars were totally twinning, sporting matching black fedoras and leather jackets in the campaign's first image. Henson rocks a bold pink lip in the fierce pic, while Smollett stares into the camera with his hands wrapped around her hips.

One hundred percent of the proceeds of Viva Glam lipsticks and lipglass go to the MAC AIDS Fund, which helps women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS -- and Henson and Smollet couldn't be more excited to join the cause.

"Excited to have@jussiesmollett join me and@MACcosmetics on the #VIVAGLAMcampaign this Feb! All sales of the lipstick help to end HIV/AIDS! @maccosmeticsaidsfund," Henson wrote on Instagram, alongside a snap of the new ad.

"I'm excited to announce @tarajiphenson and I are working with @MACCosmetics on the #VIVAGLAM campaign! @MACcosmetics through the #MacAIDSFund is on a mission to end AIDS and since the 90s, they’ve raised $430 million through the sales of#VivaGlam lip products," Smollett added on his own Instagram page. "Every single cent of the sales of these products help to end HIV/AIDS. I believe that together we can end this epidemic once and for all. Love y'all."
