Lipstick : ( £12.50 / $14.50 )

  • Pink Friday - Bright creamy pink (satin) - Limited Edition


Tell us about the inspiration for your new M·A·C Lipstick shade, Pink Friday? 
This shade is similar to the one I've worn for years by M·A·C but with a little extra ZING! I wanted a color that 
represented female empowerment as well as euphoria! The color makes u feel free to rule the world. Its sexy, yet 
fun! It pops! Its theatrical! It turns heads! No matter your age, Pink Friday makes u feel like you're the life of 
the party!  

How did you end up collaborating with M·A·C? What about the brand appeals to you? 
I've been wearing M·A·C products since my High School prom. I actually got it done at a M·A·C counter. From 
that day on, I've been hooked! I've always felt like M·A·C represents women of all colors and shades. The make- 
up always feels like it was custom made for your skin, your shade, your beauty regimen. The day I sat down with 
them I was very nervous. This had been my dream for a very long time. Surprisingly, they made me feel right at 
home. They had researched my pictures, my music, my fans! The staff seemed more like family than co-workers. 
It was a great experience.  

What are some of your favorite M·A·C products? 
I love the Studio Tech line for the basics. Once the foundation is on, I add Dolly Mix blush. I don't go anywhere 
without the M·A·C make-up wipes. Nothing removes make-up better!  

How does it feel to have an exclusive lipstick named for your album and inspired by you and your style? 
It feels like a dream come true! I've dedicated my entire life to this album. Writing and recording it was an 
emotional roller coaster for me. It felt like this was my last chance to address the world. To have a company of 
M·A·C’s magnitude get behind my little fantasy world seems surreal. They've not only recognized me but they've 
recognized my fans. That feels amazing.  

You love experimenting with your look. What are your top beauty must-haves? 
A Pink Wig, Pink Lips, lots of eye lashes, a great pump, and a pink push up bra!  

How would you describe your style? 
My style is ever changing. Its free, fun, moody, militant at times, girly girl, flamboyant, girl next door meets 

Who are some of your style icons? 
Iman, Naomi Campbell, Donatella Versace, Cyndi Lauper, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson.   

Any beauty or style advice for your fans?  
Never fall asleep with your make-up on! Always wash your face before you go to bed, keep your face moisturized 
and drink lots of water!  

How did you come up with the name “Pink Friday”? 
I was talking to management about a promotional campaign to launch the album on the week of Black Friday. 
We were throwing out words and ideas and he said Pink Friday. I loved it right away but we still didn't have a 
name for the album. About a week later in the airport I was talking about the album again and I shouted Pink 
Friday! That's not just a campaign! That's the name of this album! It represents change. The day has been 
called Black Friday all my life. I wanted to make a splash that week similar to how I've made a splash in Hip 
Hop which has always been male dominated.
