Nicki Minaj just teamed up with MAC Cosmetics, again! She collaborated with the global makeup brand on two new pinky-nude hues of lipstick with an Amplified finish. Meet — Nicki’s Nude, and The Pinkprint. From what I understand, this is just the first release of several with the brand she’ll be doing in the near future, based upon the press information I received. I don’t know what those products will be, but I can’t wait to find out!
Nicki’s Nude is a creamy coral-pink, while The Pinkprint is a creamy mid-tone pink. Both are lovely — but I’m pretty taken with Nicki’s Nude. I found that they’re wearing for about four hours, and they definitely don’t dry my lips out — but they’re not super hydrating either. I find that they are both indeed very pigmented.
I will say, I think The Pinkprint feels a little softer in the tube than Nicki’s Nude, but I don’t know if that was just my tube — or if Nicki’s Nude is just a different texture altogether, although both are still an Amplified finish. Please let me know if you think one feels softer during the application than the other.
The components on these are gorgeous — a frosted muted coral for Nicki’s Nude, and a frosty medium dusty pink for The Pinkprint. Each is emblazoned “MAC” like regular MAC lippie tubes, and these have Nicki’s signature on them in black lettering.
