Azealia Banks is giving her fans something to pucker up to while she readies her debut album.
The “Liquorice” rapper has teamed up with M.A.C Cosmetics for a limited edition lipstick named after her alter ego, Yung Rapunxel, reports Nylon. The eggplant purple-colored lipstick will be available online September 5 and in all New York City M.A.C stores from September 6-20.
In honor of Fashion’s Night Out, Banks will hold court at the M.A.C. store in SoHo on September 6. Those who arrive early enough will be able to purchase the lipstick and catch a live performance by Banks at around 7:45 p.m.
The 21-year-old Harlemite released her EP 1991 and mixtape Fantasea earlier this year. She is readying her first full-length album Broke With Expensive Taste for release on February 12, 2013.
In 2010, Banks’ fellow femcee Nicki Minaj partnered with M.A.C on her own “Pink 4 Friday” lipstick and later starred in the company’s VIVA GLAM campaign with Ricky Martin.
