MAC X Nicki Minaj Collection 2017 UK


If you are a fan of MAC you will know that this isn't the first time they have joined forces with the America rapper Nicki Minaj. You will remember that Nicki Minaj has previously released three lipsticks with MAC: Pink Friday in 2010, Viva Glam Nicki 1 in 2012 and Viva Glam Nicki 3 in 2013. We have also had a confirmation from MAC that the 2017 collection won't be the last time the duo collaborate and have promised something MAJOR coming in 2018.

The 2017 collection sees no bright, popping pink shades as previously released and is dubbed the Nude Collection. I am sure will this will make the shades more desirable and wearable for a lot of fans - at the end of the day who doesn't love a nude lip!

The MAC X Nicki Minaj Nude Collection is a vast one with 2 limited edition packaging lipsticks where the shades have been designed by Nicki herself, 18 lipsticks, 6 lip glasses and 8 lip pencils all in 2 undertones. I have each and every shade included right here:

Nicki Minaj Special Edition Packaging Lipsticks (£16.50):

  • The Pink Print - Mid-tone creamy pink (Amplified) (Limited Edition)

  • Nicki's Nudes - Soft corally pink (Amplified) (Limited Edition)

This collection is very extensive and you may be thinking what on earth do I get? I would definitely advise purchasing the special edition packaging lipsticks FAST - I predict a sell out. After this I would pick items which are limited edition. Shades such as 2N and Age/Sex/Location have been gone for a while so grab those while you can. The permanent items are available to purchase any time of the year.

The MAC X Nicki Minaj Nude Collection launches in the UK and Ireland on 1 September and will be available HERE and HERE.

What are you hoping is to come from MAC X Nicki Minaj in 2018?
