I’m not here to discuss Nicki Minaj’s music or to present an analysis or spoken word poem about her as an artist…this post is all about the lipstick.
Pink Friday is a very girly, very opaque satin pink. At the event this week in New York, an enormous and excited crowd gathered at MAC to see their Barbie Queen. The lipstick has been flying off the shelves. From the moment I got it in the mail, I was like…uh oh. Are people going to be wearing this? I used to have a My Little Pony in that color!
So I decided to try the Pink Friday lipstick in a few different ways to see if I could make it more wearable. And I find success in the end! Kinda.
The secret for me is layering it over a darker pink. Otherwise it’s too opaque for me.
What do you think, bellas? Will you be rocking Pink Friday? And, what are your thoughts on Nicki Minaj? I don’t love her music or this whole Barbie thing, but I like her personality and her success makes me proud as a Trinidadian. Would love to hear your thoughts!
