As much as I dislike Nicki Minaj, I was excited to hear about her collaboration with M.A.C. We all know I love M.A.C and their colors are not to be trifled with. While her music is not my favorite, more often than not, Nicki looks cute. Her makeup is nicely done and she isn't afraid to take risks with color. Especially pink. So when I heard that the collab was going to be a customized Barbie pink, I was very excited.
Pink Friday is a bright creamy pink lipstick. It is a Satin and is extremely limited edition. It is only being sold online on 4 Fridays this year. That is it, just 4! Three of the dates have come and gone, so don't miss it tomorrow. That's right, this upcoming Friday is the last day you can get this color from M.A.C!

I LOVE THIS PINK. Being of light skin, many people automatically assume that I can wear any shade. I wish! This simply isn't true. I cannot tell you just how MANY times I have been pissed cause a certain shade just doesn't go with my coloring. Especially pinks. Every girl wants that bubblegum pink pout perfect right out of the tube. Plus I have very lush lips, so just any ol' pink shade is like a beaming beacon of "LOOK AT ME".
To me, Pink Friday is like the Saint Germain you can actually wear daily. I loved Saint Germain to pieces, but it is actually kinda neon, dontcha think? Pink Friday has a bit more pigment and is totally wearable. Especially so with lip liner. All swatches on my lips are without liner to show you that you can wear it even on the go.
I like to wear it one of two ways. First, you can dab it on, just pat it softly around your mouth and you have the perfect "Why yes, my lips actually are naturally this pink and pretty" pout.
And of course you can always swipe it on. Even when I swipe I like to use short strokes. Sometimes it seems swiping in on actually wipes it off instead of applying it.
If being sold only on 4 Friday's EVER doesn't classify you as limited edition, then I don't know what does. That being said, I wish that we would have had some nice limited edition packaging. I tried damn hard on that website twice. I missed the first Friday and the 2nd time, they were all sold out before I could check out! Snatched them right out of my cart! The least they could do is give me a Barbie Pink Tube.
You don't have a pink like this. There are lots of similarities, but a small difference can mean the world on how a lipstick looks on. A lot of people compare it to Pink Nouveau, Nicki's former favorite. I find the two to be very different, Pink Nouveau is a much deeper, hot pink.Where as this is more bubblegum Barbie pink. I don't think Nicki would go through the trouble of making her own custom lipstick if she'd just make it a dupe of her former fave.
I think this color is a must have because it really can work for everyone. I liked it so much, I got 2! I will definitely be using it on my clients. Plus don't you wanna be one of the lucky few who get's to snag it before it's gone? Don't miss out!
