Azealia Banks Teams with M.A.C for Limited Edition Lipstick

Azealia Banks Lipstick

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.

    @Girl, Boo!, I feel the same. Who’s gonna wear that ugly lipstick? Then again, she’s a pretty ugly chick so It doesn’t surprise me. She’s a very unpleasant woman to look at.

    StarsAreBlind Reply:

    @Isac, what i want to know is….where did she get the color before MAC made it for her. Where did Nicki get pink, if MAC wasn’t making it before? Did they just get somebody elses brand color?

    As an MUA for MAC that Color is very pretty on dark skin individuals. Thats all.

  7. No Ma'am...

    It is way too dark. I’m a fan of Azealia, but she should’ve kept her audience in mind. Only gangbanging Mexican girls wear lipstick that dark.

    @fee, Perhaps those who don’t like the shade aren’t “darker skinned women.” Another idiot quick to yell “haters.”

    That’s a hot color! Everybody is going to be wearing shades of plum this fall (in the fashion world anyway). I’m not made a Azealia! Get that money guh!!!!

    What a horrendous color, it’ll flop definitely a lighter shade would have done great. I’m not a fan of Nicki but i see they’re doing a 2.0 with this endorsement like they did with her when she was new.

    “In 2010, Banks’ fellow femcee Nicki Minaj partnered with M.A.C on her own “Pink 4 Friday” lipstick” look at how they stare just to copy her…

    Tbozfan10 Reply:

    @A Realist, No it doesn’t. I’m a nicki fan but you’re acting like nicki was the first to do this which she wasn’t, therefore your statement is irrelevant and you sound like an idiot.

    @Angel cake,
    Really so a proper excuse would be that this is fashion, oh please plum is obviously one of the most intricate colors and there’s been several beautiful colors of this in make-up but this shade is horrendous. Don’t go around thinking you know everything.

  23. I love make up

    uh, launching this colour in fricking fall… is gold in the fashion business! It’s going to sell like water, wait and see, nobody would wear anything else, nice move!!!

  24. Tbozfan10

    I’m with Nicki all the way, but it’s kind of sad that to say that a lot of other nicki fans are starting to remind me of how lil kim fans acted when nicki was coming up and treating azelia the Same way Kim fans were treating nicki. Quit hating. If you are secure and confident in the artist you like you don’t have to feel threatened by another chick getting her hustle on.

    @Tbozfan10, When will people realize fans are not the artist. Your last sentence only applies to Nicki.Fans basically pick and choose, support or don’t.
