I have to admit that until I saw Nicki Minaj at the MTV VMA’s back in September, I had no idea who she was and it wasn’t until a few weeks ago that I even heard her music. Now her Dungeon Dragon track is on my gym playlist, a little angst is good at the gym! Now I am obsessed with her… she’s the hip hop Lady Gaga. It is only fitting that MAC scooped her up and worked with her to release their new Pink Friday lipstick.
This limited edition lipstick is only on sale for the next four Fridays starting November 26th. This bright and creamy pink satin formula lipstick is being introduced to celebrate Nicki’s debut album Pink Friday. Nicki says, “MAC’s Pink Nouveau was my favorite lipstick for years, but now it’s all about Pink Friday!”

I normally shy away from pinks like this but the new Nicki Minaj obsession inspired me to try it out. I think it looks ok, what do you think? A shade like this is just gorgeous with a smokey eye. The formula is definitely creamy but it will settle in the lines of your lips if you don’t stay on top of it. I’m wearing it below without any kind of base but I did lay it on pretty thick. A little Lip Erase before applying Pink Friday would be a good idea.
Here are some photos from the MAC + Nicki Minaj launch of Pink Friday Lipstick at MAC Times Square on November 23, 2010 in New York City.
So what say you? Are you liking Pink Friday as much as I am, are you ordering it today?
Disclosure: I received a sample of this lipstick for consideration.
