Nicki Minaj and M.A.C Launch Pink Friday Lipstick Jamie McCarthy/WireImage for MAC

Nicki Minaj’s eagerly anticipated album hits shelves on Nov. 26, but that’s not the only reason the pint-sized rapper‘s name will soon be on everyone’s lips. Minaj has teamed up with M.A.C to create a limited-edition lipstick shade named after her debut album, Pink Friday. A self-proclaimed fan of the brand, Minaj says she was so honored she teared up when meeting the M.A.C team for the first time. “They had no idea how much this meant to me,” she told PEOPLE. “I am super excited about the lipstick because I never imagined that M.A.C would even recognize me this early on in my career. For them to name the lipstick after my album makes me feel like I can do anything in the world because they are such an important brand and such an important staple in our culture.” The collaboration marks a longtime love affair between the hip hop diva and the cosmetic line. “I wore M.A.C to my high school prom,” she says. “For them to throw themselves behind a little rapper makes me love the company even more.” M.A.C’s Pink Friday will be available exclusively online, for four Fridays only, beginning Nov. 26 and running through Dec. 17. –Samantha McIntyre

OMG! I LOVE Nicki M.! The color is GREAT too! I think it looks good on any skin tone!!Guys come on..stop hating on her…she’s awesome! Her music is GREAT!!! Just picked up her new album! Her lyrics definitely are not whack or corny for sure?…I haven’t heard a good female rapper in a LONG TIME…and she’s girly too…which is cool. Thats so immature to stop wearing MAC because you do not “support” an artist? Seriously,grow up people.

I gotta say the first time I head her, she was rapping in a Lil Wayne song. And I literally stopped for a second, turned to my husband and said…this girl is good. That’s without ever seeing her, or her clothes etc.. She just had serious flow. Crazy as she is, I think she has talent.

it’s available for just four weeks…so the lipstick will most likely be gone before it can really wreak havoc on society. it’s just makeup, and it’s for nicki minaj, not BP, dude. calm down.

I love Nicki! She is a strong, business savy, independent women who is inspiring a whole new generation of female rappers despite of all the haters who want to hold her down. Sorry, to all the haters who couldn’t phase her. Can’t bring a strong women down, never. Big up to all the Sagittarius women; powerful, strong, independent females. If any sign can do it, it is definitely a Sag.
