Nicki Minaj and M.A.C Launch Pink Friday Lipstick Jamie McCarthy/WireImage for MAC

Nicki Minaj’s eagerly anticipated album hits shelves on Nov. 26, but that’s not the only reason the pint-sized rapper‘s name will soon be on everyone’s lips. Minaj has teamed up with M.A.C to create a limited-edition lipstick shade named after her debut album, Pink Friday. A self-proclaimed fan of the brand, Minaj says she was so honored she teared up when meeting the M.A.C team for the first time. “They had no idea how much this meant to me,” she told PEOPLE. “I am super excited about the lipstick because I never imagined that M.A.C would even recognize me this early on in my career. For them to name the lipstick after my album makes me feel like I can do anything in the world because they are such an important brand and such an important staple in our culture.” The collaboration marks a longtime love affair between the hip hop diva and the cosmetic line. “I wore M.A.C to my high school prom,” she says. “For them to throw themselves behind a little rapper makes me love the company even more.” M.A.C’s Pink Friday will be available exclusively online, for four Fridays only, beginning Nov. 26 and running through Dec. 17. –Samantha McIntyre

Child, Please! on

Um, NO. I’ve lost any respect for MAC if they’ll associate themselves w/ the likes of no-talent / shock-value hacks Gaga & Minaj. #Epic Fail

spanish fly on

Weak lyrics REALLY? Never, Nickis Lyrics are the bomb!!! Go Nicki Minaj! Woo Shes awesome, M.A.Cs Awesome yall are just haters! You’ll keep buying from MAC! ahhh!

kayla on

i wouldnt say im a fan a nicki but i dont dislike her an to all the people that are saying they will never buy M.A.C again are all closed minded.. why hate on someone for just making something of her self weather she is a rapper or a CEO…

EMitch on

I think that it is crazy that because MAC chooses to endorse someone that you may not like that you would stop using the makeup all together! I wear nothing but MAC… am I fan of Nicki, no, but would I stop wearing it… NO! It’s just a shade of lipstick selling for FOUR WEEKS! Not even a LINE of makeup! They have endorsed several artists in the past that I don’t think are all that but MAC is different and edgy… always has been and I see why they chose her. I agree with Kayla, stop being so close minded!

Nicki Minaj is corny I can be her to give me some wack lyrics and a mic and I can scream, change my voice like a little girl, and change my voice to sound like a man. Fake wannabe Little Kim. Sad that people like her music and think she is a great artist. Sad day for music.

Dani on

YAY!!!!! Nicki M…..I soooo love her style and music. I met her in person a beautiful sweet humble person. Team Nicki YOU GO GIRL!!!!

I like NM not a total fan but I’m proud to see a young women who is working very hard at her craft So Big Ups!

OMG! I LOVE Nicki M.! The color is GREAT too! I think it looks good on any skin tone!!Guys come on..stop hating on her…she’s awesome! Her music is GREAT!!! Just picked up her new album! Her lyrics definitely are not whack or corny for sure?…I haven’t heard a good female rapper in a LONG TIME…and she’s girly too…which is cool. Thats so immature to stop wearing MAC because you do not “support” an artist? Seriously,grow up people.

marilyn on

I gotta say the first time I head her, she was rapping in a Lil Wayne song. And I literally stopped for a second, turned to my husband and said…this girl is good. That’s without ever seeing her, or her clothes etc.. She just had serious flow. Crazy as she is, I think she has talent.

heather on

it’s available for just four weeks…so the lipstick will most likely be gone before it can really wreak havoc on society. it’s just makeup, and it’s for nicki minaj, not BP, dude. calm down.

dedra williams on

Really, u would stop buying Mac because of Nicki! How fickle. Anyway Nicki, u go girl!

jay on

I love Nicki! She is a strong, business savy, independent women who is inspiring a whole new generation of female rappers despite of all the haters who want to hold her down. Sorry, to all the haters who couldn’t phase her. Can’t bring a strong women down, never. Big up to all the Sagittarius women; powerful, strong, independent females. If any sign can do it, it is definitely a Sag.

Wow, some of you people are married too. That’s sad. Anyways you people need to listen to some old eminem or even his new stuff and then listen to Nicki Minaj. BIG DIFFERENCE IN LYRICS, METAPHORS, ETC. Lil Wayne sucks. He is just weak punch-lines and metaphors. If someone sounded like Lil Wayne on a track, how in the world does that mean their good? That’s not being original. Nicki is a KNOWN swagger-jacker, and she doesn’t even write all of her wack raps. If Nicki wants and real beef, step to Em and we’ll see where she stands in this game. She is a sell-out and will do anything to get famous. That includes selling her CD on amazon.com for .99 cents on Black Friday. She is basically taking Lil Kim’s style and combining it with Lil Wayne’s raps, she’s not original. For anyone who is asinine enough to think shes one of the best rapper, I feel sorry that your English comprehension skills and vocabulary isn’t advanced enough to decipher strong lyrics from the weak.

CF on

Judging by VAL’s comment saying that her lyrics “are the bomb” he doesnt really know much when it comes to hip-hop.. this is only commercial rap that floods the radio with garbage. Get real, this is nothing close to real hip hop..

waiting for so long for this to drop.
