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.MAC x Nicki Minaj Lipsticks Review

MAC x Nicki Minaj Lipstick swatches: Nicki’s Nude, The Pinkprint

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.

MAC x Nicki Minaj Comparison Swatches: Honeylove, Kinda Sexy, Nicki’s Nude, Yash

Nicki’s Nude is similar to Kinda Sexy, but is shinier and a hair lighter. Yash and Honeylove have more brown in them.

MAC x Nicki Minaj Comparison Swatches: Angel, Brave, Creme Cup, The Pinkprint

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.
