Nicki Minaj Teases First of Its Kind MAC Partnership with Nicki Nudes

On the heels of the premiere for the video of one of the summer’s hottest anthems, “Rake It Up” with Yo Gotti, Queens rapper Nicki Minaj is revving the public up for another premiere. The self-proclaimed queen of rap announced her collaboration with MAC Cosmetics that will be available for purchase this fall.

The signature MAC collaboration includes two nude shades. One shade is called Nicki’s Nude and the other is called The Pinkprint. The latter borrows its name from her 2014 multi-platinum album of the same name. The two creamy mocha-beige nude shades are similar to the lip colors that have been staples for Minaj since toning down her once eclectic look in recent years.


The Nicki Nudes collaboration with MAC will mark the first time the rap icon has worked with the brand since designing a lavender lipstick for the beauty conglomerate in 2012 in honor of their Viva Glam Foundation.

Minaj announced the two shades, but also teased some big things that are in the works for her and the mega beauty brand coming next year. “It’s a first of its kind partnership for me and the OG MAC,” she captioned.


The signature Nicki Nudes shades will hit beauty stores globally September 21 and will be on sale for $18.
