So, Nicki Minaj’s personally designed pepto-(a)bismol pink lipstick is up on the MAC website today… for one day only.  Until next Friday.  And the one after that…

And the one after that… until MAC have bled their fans dry not only of their money but also of their patience.

Buying stuff from MAC… it’s like the 12 labours of Hercules.

I’ll (unsurprisingly) be passing on this.  I can’t even make All Styled Up work for me so I have no hope with this one.  Plus, I don’t shop on Fridays.  It’s against my religion (as of today).

Will you be picking this one up?

  1. Hmmm, I am tempted to get this, but part of me thinks I’m too old and it will just look hideous on me. Can’t decide.

    Not my colour so I’m not interested in the slightest, which is good for my wallet :)

    It’s already sold out online…and after seeing swatches, I think I can make do with my millions of Mac pink lipsticks for now…looks a little too chalky for my liking.

    I really wanted this but after looking I don’t think it’ll suit me, it’s sold out anyway and I’m not going to make a special trip into town after work on a Friday to get one. So, nah.

  7. I have no idea who Nicki Minaj is, nor do I care. And I definitely won’t be picking this one up. Looks a little to harsh and cool-toned for me xxx

    the colour sucks, the campaign ad sucks, and the whole concept of pink fridays sucks. wouldn’t buy it, even if it was available in my country.

    I saw the swatches on Temptalia and it looked terrible on someone as light as her so I can just imagine how bad it will look on me, a lot of people will buy it just because it is limted edition but I’m a makeup user, not a makeup collector so LE stuff holds no magical cant-get-it-anymore charm for me.

    Plus it seems like such an easy choice, ANOTHER pink lipstick, they could have gone for something different as some people will buy anything that MAC put out.

  13. No because it seems highly dupable and on top of that, I can’t even make GaGa work for me so this one is probably too cool as well.

    I think its a shade that only suits certain skin tones, So I won’t be getting it.

    Its being sold on Friday because the name of Nicki Minaj’s debut album is called “Pink Friday”(play on word for ‘Black Friday’ in the US) and in ALL of her songs, she talks about MAC lipstick and her love for the colour pink so i can see how MAC is cashing in on her lmao!

    I dislike Nicki Minaj, this lipstick and this sales tactic (or whatever). All around disappointment for me, so I won’t be picking it up. I wish MAC would stop with the weird sales tactic and just let it be.

    I am NOT buying this. First off, I see way too many similarities between this and a million other lipsticks. I saw the swatches on Temptalia and I don’t see how this could flatter anybody. With that said, I don’t think these sort of colors are meant to be flattering per se, they’re just meant to make a bold statement. I own VG Gaga and I love it. On its own, it’s pretty unflattering but if you line your lips with Sublime Culture first, it mutes the color a bit. Then it looks not only wearable, but gorgeous. I’m just going to buy backups of that instead of waiting around for this.

    I hate the promotional image for this, never mind the fact it won’t suit me, so I definitely won’t be buying!

    nope, purely because on the basis that Nicki whats her face’s facial expression in the promo annoys the heck out of me.
