Azealia Banks Launches Lipstick in NYC

Azealia Banks

While most of her peers were in L.A. for the VMAs, Azealia Banks was on the East Coast celebrating Fashion’s Night Out. The Harlem rapper launched her lipstick, named after her alter ego “Yung Rapunxel,” at the M.A.C Cosmetics store in SoHo. Her Kunt Brigade lined up to be among the first to purchase the plum-colored lipstick and watch her perform an intimate set including “Van Vogue,” “1991,” “Liquorice,” “Esta Noche,” and “212.”

“I’m so proud of myself right now…. I have a MAC LIPSTICK AAAAAHHHHHHH!!!!” tweeted Azealia.

    That camera should have zoomed out a bit on that photo. I’m sure it’ll scare folks away instead of drawing them in.

    There is more relevance at the bottom of my shoe than this post. Azealia Banks better be screen capping all the post rap-up creates about her for her “Damn I almost made it if it wasn’t for Young Money, and Nicki Minaj(Scooby Doo teas)” Scrapbook.

    @Roman, You sound stupid. If anything, Nicki has made it Easier for Azalea to make it in the game. Now that labels have seen the success of Minaj, they are less likely to be so hesitant to sign a female rapper.

    Love this girl…so talented! No major promo, no major features & her lipstick is almost sold out!

    Gaga collab, album in February! Female rap is finally back!

    Most talented female rapper since Lil Kim! But Lil Kim will always be the greatest of all time!!

    @liio, She’s not ugly, but lately she looks ugly. It’s all the make up, dark lipstick, waive, and her choice of clothes. She looked better before she blew up, now she looks like a tranny. It’s the same thing that happened to Lady Gaga :(

    @DeeZee, Some of the biggest names is fashion are signing her as a model and spokesperson, so your opinion is both incorrect and irrelevant.

    Azelia is NATURALLY beautiful and talented. No gimmicks. She’s not spending a bunch of $ to appeal to the public and/or jackin other artist to make a name for herself. Blog opinions are ALWAYS on how a celebrity looks. If Nicki stans can endorse and support Nicki regardless to her unappealing lack of personal style, then Azelia will become just as brighter. Her talent will take her there.

    Beauty has nuthin to do with it. Gaga made it and she’s not pretty at all. Zelia is young and she is doing well for herself. Zelia didn’t have support from cash cows like the Young money camp.

    If she would get breast implants, butt injections, skin lightener and a nose job, then blogs and commenters would post on how FAKE and plastic she is. Stay naturally beautiful Azelia!

    Azealia is the It Girl right now. If you like it, great.. If ya don’t, who gives a fuck! The fact that some of the haters took time to even comment the post makes her relevant! Lol!! She is killin it right now. A rapper who is being snatched up by today’s and yesterday’s biggest designers and you favorite artist!! I respect her grind. She’s an artist and still keeps the music coming. Don’t fuck with ya bitch when the rum in her punch! And I’m out … Great Article Rap-Up.
