We Try On Nicki Minaj's Wildly Pink MAC Lipstick


Even before her collaboration with MAC, Nicki Minaj wore her pink lip color everywhere — and with everything. (She even managed to match her lips to her hair color.) With a new album and her own signature lipstick from a makeup giant, I suppose her dedication to the color proves the old adage: if it ain't broke, don't fix it. While I can't imagine coloring my hair pink any time soon, I did get to channel my inner Barbie with her new shade, Pink 4 Friday ($15). It's available only on Fridays, and of course I had to try it on.

To see what it looks like, keep reading.

The lipstick looked rich and creamy, so I thought this color would glide on relatively opaque. Nope, I had to put on a couple of coats to get this look. Use a primer or a concealer as a base if you're looking for this kind of intensity.

While I don't usually opt for such a bright pink, especially one with a blue undertone, I generally liked the color and the satiny finish. If this is too pink for you, try bringing the color down with brown lip pencil like MAC lip liner in Cork ($13). In keeping with all things pink, I applied a Nars blush in Orgasm ($26) to the apples of my cheeks for a healthy glow.

Today's offering of Pink 4 Friday is sold out, but it will return (available online only) on Dec. 10 and 17.

Not a fan on your particular skin tone...I'm not sure it would flatter any women with warm undertones. But then again, Nicki Minaj is anything but subtle....

You totally make it work, but I don't think I could pull it off. I like the look though.
