    Nicki Minaj is no stranger to a MAC collaboration. She’s been the face of MAC’s Viva Glam campaign not once, but twice. Once in 2012 alongside Ricky Martin and then  again in 2013, when she nabbed the covetable title of best selling Viva Glam lipstick of all time. MAC is definitely onto a winner.


    But this time she’s swapped her Barbie pinks and pastel lavenders for something a little more, dare we say, natural. And it’s all about the nudes. Nicki has custom-designed two new au natural shades – Nicki’s Nude, a soft coral pink and a creamy blush called Pinkprint which will both drop on September 1st. Put it in your diary NOW, as they’re limited edition and expected to fly off the shelves. Here’s hoping they make an appearance in our edit of the best MAC makeup deals (a girl can dream).

    But for those who need extra Nicki love? Thankfully the pop diva dropped a massive hint that there could be more MAC x Minaj collabs on the horizon, teasing a “surprise announcement coming for 2018”.

    Could this mean a full and permanent lipstick collection?

    RIP bank balance.
