MAC Pink 4 Friday Update!

So last weekend Danielle over at The Style and Beauty Doctor was first to break the news about the MAC and Nicki Minaj collaboration. Pink 4 Friday is a Limited Edition Lipstick designed by Nicki Minaj to celebrate her debut album. Exclusively online for only four Fridays starting November 26, 2010 at .

Today I happened to come across Minaj' recent interview on the Wendy Williams Show where viewers got the first glimpse of the lipstick.

At first glance the sought after lippy looks like Viva Glams 'Gaga', however I reckon this will be slightly more brown girl friendly.The finish of 'Pink 4 Friday' is said to be Satin and buildable.

What are your thoughts on the collabo and most importantly the shade? Hit or Miss?

***UPDATE 20.11.10***

NYX Cosmetics Now Available In The UK

So I was very excited to hear that NYX Cosmetics had finally arrived online here, in good ol'blighty. However upon visiting their site I was met with the mind boggling prices!!! I mean five pounds for one Jumbo Eye Pencil!? Surely that's Evil-bay prices? Perhaps I feel this way because i've become accustomed to paying my little £2.75 for the popular Pencils on a popular cosmetic sellers site; anybody for Cocktails?


Despite my initial shock at the sky high prices, I definitely would like to try one or two or three of their cream blushes in the near future.

I know that its early days, but I wonder if we'll ever have the privilidge of a sale mirroring the infamous Dollar Sale one day, hmmm.

Whispers of a MAC and Nicki Minaj Lipstick

So rumor has it that Hip-Hops very own 'Gaga', Nicki Minaj is in talks with MAC about collaborating on a limited edition lipstick called 'Pink Friday 4'. The launch is said to coincide with the release of Minaj' debut album titled 'Pink Friday', in stores and on iTunes November 22nd.

According to The Style and Beauty Doctor her 'sources say' the lipstick will be a vivid shade of fuschia, perhaps the middle sister of MACs Pink Nouveau and Girl About Town lipsticks. It is a possibility that 'Pink Friday 4' will only be available online for 4 consecutive [Pink] Friday's, if this is so I do hope that it hits MACs UK website too!

Note: The pink lipstick Nicki is wearing in the photo above this post is not the said 'Pink Friday 4'.
