Nicki Minaj has said creating her own lipstick is a “dream come true”.
The US pop star donned a multi-coloured wig and a striking orange dress to launch her new MAC lipstick, Pink Friday, in New York.
“This had been my dream for a very long time – I’ve dedicated my entire life to this album, and to have a company of MAC’s magnitude get behind my little fantasy world seems surreal,” she said.
The candy pink shade was inspired by Nicki’s new album of the same name.
“This shade is similar to the one I’ve worn for years by MAC but with a little extra zing!” she continued.
“I wanted a colour that represented female empowerment as well as euphoria. The colour makes you feel free to rule the world. It’s sexy, yet fun – it pops! It’s theatrical. It turns heads. No matter your age, Pink Friday makes you feel like you’re the life of the party,” she added.
Nicki’s MAC Pink Friday lipstick – a play on words from the US Black Friday holiday – will be available for four Fridays from November 26.
“It represents change. The day has been called Black Friday all my life. I wanted to make a splash that week similar to how I’ve made a splash in hip hop which has always been male dominated,” she explained.
