Things may have gotten a little out of hand with the birthday month purchases. Plus, I’m a bit behind on reviewing products gifted to me that I’m enjoying. I’ll have quite a few reviews forthcoming for all of the fun things I have either bought or received as PR.
I just couldn’t pass up the limited edition MAC x Nicki Minaj collection. There are two lipsticks in gorgeous limited packaging, both of which are lighter pinky shades. It’s as if they said “Jenn” instead of “Nicki” on them.
Nicki’s Nude – “soft coral-pink” in an Amplified finish
The Pinkprint – “midtone creamy pink” in an Amplified finish
I did think these shades would be a little bit more nude, but they are beautiful shades that I love to reach for on a daily basis. They are pretty light though, even for my fair skin. I love them and *think* I pull them off, but it seems just barely for my fair skin.
These lipsticks feel super creamy and look shiny in a healthy way.
I looked for other MAC lipsticks in my collection that seemed similar to the Nicki Minaj lipsticks for comparisons.
Nicki’s Nude is similar to Kinda Sexy, but is shinier and a hair lighter. Yash and Honeylove have more brown in them.
The Pinkprint is a tad darker than Angel or Creme Cup, but lighter than Brave.
The Pinkprint is totally my jam, but I love Nicki’s Nude too. Obviously I die over the packaging! I’m so happy to have these in my collection.
Are you picking up either of Nicki’s lipsticks? ↓
