  1. Cynthia

    Ooh how exciting! thanks for the update, Christine. You’re the best!

  2. lustrebonbon

    I’m SOO glad this is true! Love Nicki!She’s such a Barbie.

  3. Jodie

    oo i love pink lipstick and her style, but is that picture suppose to look creepy?

  4. Ani_BEE

    I looked at the model and though “Is she really”? the shade is to bright for me but Barbie Pink I can see fling off the shelf. Plus I got lips Tars that I could blend to match. ^_^

  5. Lady Di.

    I cant wait for this! I love Nicki Minaj and that pink is so pretty!

  6. Love Nicki, the Queen Barbie, but WHAT is with the Photoshop on her cover?! She has great legs, but they’re not seven feet long! 😛

    Anyway, I’m expecting this color to be close to Lady GaGa’s Viva Glam.

    • She’s supposed to look like a Barbie doll

      • Ani_BEE

        I have to agrees with that since she not really looking like herself anymore. It’s the first time seeing the cover as well so it was like. O_o whos legs are those?

    • hehehe! I thought the same thing. I don’t know why they do not know what to do with arms in photoshop. Maybe it’s Barbie after a toy-breaking kid gets a hold of her? They should have done the weird angled Barbie arms.

      • Lovelybee

        Nicki actually wanted to be represented as a broken Barbie doll on her cover so they elongated her legs and broke her arms…she’s definitely….something lol

  7. Cat

    Do you know when it would launch?

  8. Mai

    Awww it looks like the contest is already over :(

  9. Pinky

    YAYYYYY!!!! I see myself bying 5 tubes lol!

  10. Amanda Dubs

    Hmm I wonder if I can get this with my B2M since its regular price. Lol!

    • Angie

      As long as the packaging (meaning the plastic lipstick tube) is the same as the regular lipstick, then you can use it for B2M. If it has any special type of lettering like the Gaga lipstick or like Venomous Villians then you can’t.

  11. MissChels

    Not that I am a huge Nicki Minaj fan or anything but I am obsessed with pink lipsticks and this will be a must have for me!!

  12. Judy

    Hi Christine, would you know the finish of the lipstick yet? It’s a pretty pink, but I can’t wear such light colors anymore. If it were a darker pink then I would definitely buy it. Can’t wait for the swatch.

  13. holly

    according to the wendy williams show site, this is the lipstick in question: http://community.wendyshow.com/page/-/Free-Stuff-NickiTWO.jpg
    hope that helps, ladies =]

  14. Tamara

    I’m going to be allll over this! Two of my 3 favorite things in the world: Nicki Minaj and MAC!!! (The third favorite thing being animals, of course) ;).

  15. Sharon

    I think this will be like the Lady GaGa lipstick but regardless, I’m still excited!

  16. Hend

    Thanks for the update !
    I lovvvvvve Pink Lipsticks

  17. Marcela

    no idea who this is but the promotional pic is really creepy…

  18. kenneth alan

    I’m sure the colour is a really dry, chalky, in your face, unwearable for most colour… but I’ll still buy it.

    I wonder if it will have some weird packaging… one can only hope!

  19. Rebecca

    is this going to be a whole limited edition or just a lipstick? :-O I didn’t get it ^^

  20. Deb

    I’m looking forward to the lipstick, but that promotional pic is terrifying!

  21. how exciting !!! she looks like a barbie !!

  22. Dia

    So, so, so over Onika Maraj. I’m definitely not going to get this lipstick. But I do think the Photoshopped legs are a nice Barbie touch. I’m more concerned that her arms aren’t out; do the real Barbie’s arms fold back behind her completely? Can’t say I’ve played with Barbie anytime recently, but I used to love Barbies when I was a kid. :)

  23. Wendy R.

    I hope that the ” Barbie pink ” isn’t a cool based pink. I have a feeling that it will be very similar to the lady gaga lipstick . I really wish that Mac would come out with more warmed based pinks!

    • ak

      MAC has warm based pinks but they’re all in the permanent range. Check out Lame and Creme de La Femme, and I forgot the name of the other one….

  24. Courtney

    That picture made me go “What the fffffffffffuuuuuuu–?”

  25. Perri

    Do you think theres only a limited amount?=/

  26. Nastassia

    I just spoke to one of the MAC girls at my counter at Macys & she said it’s online only!!! && she also said I’m the only one that knows about it 😀

  27. KimAnh

    Marci: Hi Kim. Please check back with us on November 22nd to sign up for the Nicki Minaj Pink Friday wait list to receive details regarding this launch.

    Kim: Okay, thank you. In the meantime, do you have any lipstick suggestions that would be close to it that I can purchase while I wait?

    Marci: Pink Nouveau, Lady Gaga or Lickable Lipsticks are similar shades.

    ** I’m a huge Nicki Minaj fan so I will definitely be buying Pink 4 Friday but it’s good to know there will be similar dupes!

  28. M.

    Yuck the promopic is ugly. I really don’t like it. The lipstick in Barbie pink sounds promising though. I aleady own a ‘barbie pink’ lipstick but I’ll be sure to check this one out too.

  29. stephanie

    I’ll get it! I skipped GAGA but if this is a little deeper, I am sold! This is a cool move for the company! Tweens, teens are going to be on it!

  30. Crystal

    Such an abnormal picture, look @ the leg that is bent. There is no way her legs are really that long. Its cool and creepy at the same time lol

  31. Alyx

    That photo is kinda terrifying lol

  32. Kelsey

    Meh. I don’t really like Nicki Minaj. This is a pass for me.

  33. divinem (Melissa)

    That had BETTER be a mannequin! Who has legs that long?!

  34. Tatiana

    How fitting! I don’t know if I can get down with that shade of pink though but I loooove Nicki Minaj!

  35. Kayla

    I scoped around online and I guess it’s just plain MAC packaging. I’m kind of disappointed that it’s not something more special since the color is so similar to other MAC lippies. I’ll still definitely buy it because I love Barbie pink and Nicki Minaj. Can never have too many pink lippies!

  36. Amanda

    I think it is going to be a satin finish

  37. samijane

    Sooo excited love her! but it probably be as pink as that hair

  38. Natalie

    Will it be available in the UK ?

  39. I don’t even listen to Nicki Minaj, but if that’s the pink they are talking about in the promo pic then I want it.

  40. Sara Jean

    Is it going to be sold in stores? o.o

  41. CeeBee

    She has no arms!!!!

    (and yes, the legs look a bit creepy)

  42. I know this product is limited edition, but will it be around for at least a few months like the Cydni and Gaga or will it be around only long enough to sell out? I understand you probably don’t have this information at this point in time, but if you do receive it, please post it under updates.

    I sort of get frustrated when MAC doesn’t give a launch date, I just bought 2 things from the new Chanel resort collection so this lipstick is going to have to wait.

  43. Amanda Enn

    …Nicki Minaj? Really?
    First Marcel Wanders, now this.

  44. Ali

    Why does she always have to make that stupid face? Why can’t she smile…

  45. Megan

    This could just be rumor but on Bellasugar.com they have it listed as being only online for four fridays…..which means to me that it will sell out…..I think they have it listed as starting to go on sale not tomorrow but next friday…..again….this was off of another site and dont know if its true, personally, after a large YSL, Dior and Nars haul I am going to be passing on this as I feel that it will be close to Gaga.

  46. Katie

    It will actually only be available for four weeks and only on fridays

  47. Lindsay


  48. DominicanBarbiie

    Yep She actually confirmed it on Wednesday on the Wendy Williams show and gifted one to everyone in the audience. I am sooo excited I love nicki,barbie and pink :)

  49. jessica

    Christine,do you think it will go on sale in the morning?

  50. Reese

    Ooh! I’m excited for this ^_^ I hope it will be a pink that I could pull off.

  51. ak

    This just looks like either the VG Gaga or Pink Nouveau, and I already have Pink Nouveau which is wearable for me with any of the MAC light brown lip pencils.

  52. Melody

    that promo picture is so freaky. O_________o

  53. Lauren

    That is one of the creepiest looking photos I’ve ever seen….

  54. WOA!!! She definitely knows how to wear lipstick. I can’t stand that confused doll face she tends to make though (like the one on the promo photo).

  55. z

    So I’m confused. Is it going on sale tomorrow as tweeted by keri or is it going on sale nov 26th according to essence? I have to have this lipstick!

  56. Leenie

    I don’t like her as a singer but I do like pink lipstick

  57. kathy

    i wonder if the lippie looks anything like saint germain?

  58. Lakitha

    I’ll pass on the Nicki Minaj pink shade. I am not all that impressed by this color. I think that other MAC pinks such as Show Orchid, Full Fuschia, and Girl About Town are much better. I love Dare to Wear’s Gimme That.

  59. Wait. Confuesed.. Is this available ONLY online on 4 Fridays or at stores and counters too?

  60. Emma

    Guys its not gonna be the lipstick on her cover.. thats the actual cover of her new cd… this isnt a lipstick add! pink neuvou (or however u spell it) is HOT pink.. gaga isnt. i dont think it will be like gaga. and i personally, cannot wait!!

  61. Lusious

    I need this in my liife hope I’m able to get it and it won’t be sold out.

  62. carmie

    christine does this mean is going to be on sale like there selling it for cheaper?

  63. Greta-Maree

    i hope it comes out in NZ ! :c i love nicki!

  64. Andrea

    OMG I’m going to buy like 4 of them. I’m a HUGEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEe Nicki Minaj fan! :))))

  65. Angel

    lol Nicki Minaj did not hit it big until she hooked it up with MAC ;D.
    Christine, do you know if the lipstick will be available at counters? From the looks of it, i think it’s only going to be online… :(

  66. Brigette

    OMG I’m so excited. :)

  67. I’m a female rapper myself, I love Nicki, she proves that girls can rock it too. :]

    I wonder since it’s so exclusive if there’s a limit on how many people can buy? I want ittt.

  68. jenna

    im sorry but this is a terrible way to debut a lipstick. i like to see it in person and try it on before i buy it. it looks very similar to the gaga one, which i already passed on cuz i have snob that looks close enough to that or even similar to saint germain which i returned as well. =/ mac stop trying to fool us and bring out some other colors!

  69. Charlene

    Any news for international sales? I hope it will hit MAC stores in Malaysia real soon. I’m trilled.

  70. Lillian

    So Does this mean it will not be sold in stores???

  71. KimAnh

    You can search “Pink Friday 4″ or “Nicki Minaj” on the MAC website and you can officially sign up for the e-mail list!

    “Pink 4 Friday – COMING SOON!
    Pink Friday is a Limited Edition Lipstick designed by Nicki Minaj to celebrate her debut album. Exclusively online for only four Fridays starting November 26, 2010. “

  72. im not a big nicki fan but i saw a preview of the lipstick and im so gonna buy it its look hot

  73. Lisa

    here a lil view of the lipstick at 7.07.

    looks like id be getting it cause i about nicki’s complexion so im sure it wont disappoint. wish the tube itself was pink and really represented Minaj’s persona outside just as the color does :(

  74. melanie

    Wondering how it will compare to Strayin’ (from Hello Kitty)…hmmm

  75. Lolli

    Wow! this is a big deal. I love NICKI MINAJ im so happy for her and mac!

  76. Hannah

    I love Nicki! So excited for this!

  77. Grace

    I’ve never lived for black friday, but will be now bc of the candy pink lipstick. Hope it doesn’t disappoint.

  78. Rachel

    will it be available in the UK??

  79. deanah

    does this have specail packaging ? I cant wait

  80. Crissy

    I’m so tired of MAC coming out with similar pink lippies! Everything’s always a dupe of a dupe. Hopefully this pink will be unique, ‘cuz I want it!

  81. shalonda

    Meant to type more. The finish is a Satin and its lighter than Pink Nouveau its a true Barbie PinK.

    • Alexis (m0rg3nst3rn)

      Barbie pink isn’t really a light at all. I work for Mattel. It’s not a like pink color. I mean, unless you are thinking Barbie’s lips. The logo and and the main Barbie color used, is not….

      Anyway, I am not sure about this color….I already have gaga and if it is really close to that then there is not point. Hence the reason I like being able to swatch and compare….le sigh….

  82. Starr

    The picture above is NOT the promo pic for the lipstick it’s the cover of her new album which comes out next Tuesday entitled “Pink Friday”. She has all of the young girls following her “Barbie” persona and her arms were erased and legs were elongated as such. Google is your friend for those who aren’t familiar w/ who Nicki Minaj is or if you even care.

    The lipstick will be sold online only beginning Nov 26th and for 4 consecutive Fridays! Hence the name “Pink Friday” so yes expect it to sell out!

  83. Hollie

    Do you know what finish the lipstick will be?
    Also when you say for the next 4 consecutive fridays, do you mean just friday or the other days in between too?

  84. shauna

    looks like saint germaine to me

  85. Khadija

    seems like this one will be really loud; i don’t think i’ll be getting it but I can’t wait to see swatches online etc…

  86. ummm how many people wanna base their shades off of pink nouveau, first gaga, now minaj… why don’t we just buy pink nouveau in the first place? i love both the girls, but come on… dont base it off a pre-existing mac colour

  87. Not trying to say that one is copying the other but VG Gaga is in the same family as this lipstick and Gaga herself said that she wanted something similar to the lipstick she used to wear all the time, Pink Nouveau. I think they should’ve went in another direction with this lipstick. With that said, I like the color and I might buy it… not sure yet.

  88. Greta-Maree

    i love nicki and i love bright pink lipstick :( WHY CANT IT BE SOLD INTERNATIONALLY? NZ sucks :c

  89. Jacquelyn

    I adore Nicki Minaj! She’s not really my type of music, but I do adore her style and I love how confident she is. Her lipstick color really embraces her style, but I don’t think it’d be suiting for me (and it’s not really what I go for anyways).

    The promo picture is really scary though. IS she supposed to be a Barbie mannequin (no arms and super long legs)? And it seems like she’s been doing her “crazy eyes” pose a lot…

  90. Jenny

    Didn’t Lady Gaga say her inspiration for her lipstick was Pink Nouveau too? I could be mistaken but seems a little weird that they would do two similar lipsticks for limited releases

  91. Sam

    Are you going to have swatches before it’s released?!

  92. Michelle

    This just seems *so* gimmicky . . . only available for 4 Fridays?? I get that she is trying to look like Barbie, but this is exactly the reason I am moving on to brands like Chanel. I’m getting too old for this stuff, LOL!

    • Lorna

      i am starting to think the same thing for myself.but i will still be getting this one. i have not been impressed by the mac releases as of late. i think 2009 was my big, fall for the madness of mac releases phase and for the most part i am over it except for releases where i am reasonably sure i will like the color.

  93. Trish

    LOVING this pink! And as a fellow ‘Trini’ I must buy it.

  94. Marina

    The promo pic creeps the hell out of me! I have no idea who this thing is and have no desire to find out.

  95. I don’t know about these light pinks (blue) MAC keeps coming out with, I’m still trying to use my Viva GAGA…

    • Lara

      Yes I know what you mean. I have only tended to wear the viva glam glass with a magenta coloured lipstick. the brights seem to wash me out…but I guess I will still get it.

  96. I can’t wait till swatches of this start to leak onto the internet. That close up of nicki minaj’s face though…jesus christ she looks scary. I have just never been able to get over that blank-eyed doll face she makes. plus this album cover has her photo shopped into the post-human, but somehow it’s not in a cool or interesting way…Maybe i’m just getting old and out of touch.

    • Livi

      Its BADLY photoshopped, its unconvincing and it isn’t interesting, like you said.
      Its just not well done and unimpressive. If you’re going to photoshop an image, you want it to be atleast somewhat convincing, not like someone just hit liquify.

  97. I’m waiting for a swatch so I can say I don’t need it. Am I the only one that finds the Friday thing dumb? It doesn’t make it seem exclusive, it is just obnoxious. Not to mention that photo? WTH? Are her breasts photoshopped enough? Ew. I did lol pretty hard when I scrolled down and saw the close up.

    • Tasha

      LOL I concur, I don’t feel the hype with this collection AT ALL. If it were not viva glam I would most likely bash it in it’s entirety. Something I find quite hilarious is on the website the picture it shows of her is the one where you can almost see her crotch then it flashes to the lipstick! Am I the only one who found humor in that? Sorry it that was vulgar to anyone I have no intentions of offending anyone. :)
