Aside from her featured rap stylings (and sassy lyrics) on nearly every hit song on the radio nowadays, hip-hop diva Nicki Minaj is known for her wild outfits, zany wigs, and bright pink lipstick. While most of her rainbow-inspired, in-your-face looks aren’t exactly wearable to those of us who don’t have a successful debut album out, Nicki’s recent collaboration with MAC aims to bring a little hip-hop inspired flavor to her beauty maven fans; that is, if you’re willing to try hard enough to track it down!
MAC’s “Pink Friday” lipstick, which just launched on November 26th (aka Black Friday), is a creamy satin bubblegum pink shade, created to celebrate the recent launch of Nicki’s debut album of the same name, as well as pay tribute to her signature bright makeup style. While MAC is certainly not new to celebrity collaborations and shades inspired by famous faces, Pink Friday puts an interesting spin by making it available for purchase on the MAC website only on Fridays. The shade sold out in the blink of an eye on its first Friday launch, and while it’s definitely an eye-catching color, I can’t decide if its playing-hard-to-get makes it more intriguing, or just more trouble than its worth. What say you — is it worth jumping through hoops at the start of the weekend to get your hands on this Nicki-branded shade?
