Last week I broke some beauty news with the confirmation that Nicki Minaj was collaborating with MAC to launch a limited edition collection. Well, hold onto your pink lipsticks ladies, Nicki Minaj’s limited edition “Pink Friday” lipstick will be available at all MAC counters and online for the next four fridays only! The “Pink Friday” lipstick is named after her first solo album which just dropped last Friday. Being that Nicki Minaj is the hottest female rapper on the scene and that her favorite lipstick of all time was MAC’s Pink Nouveau, it made perfect sense that the superstar rapper and the hottest makeup brand would come together and create something new and exciting and most definitely pink.
MAC and Marcel Wanders – a Dutch design genius with a futuristic aesthetic that lends well to the sleek, sophisitication of MAC, have teamed up to create an exclusive, limited edition collection that is anything but ordinary. Marcel Wanders has brought his unique vision and sense of design to MAC’s world of beauty and the results are astoundingly modern, chic and very fashion forward. The collection consists of the following products:
Four Lipsticks in gorgeous shades
Four Lipglasses in stunning hues
Two Sheer Mystery Powders
A Black Mascara
A Chic Brush Clutch
A Blush Brush
An Air of Style Scent Concentrate
All of these amazing products can be found at your local MAC counter or online at www.maccosmetics.com

One of my favorite skin care brands is stepping out into the beauty arena with a new color collection. Juice Beauty is known for their organic skin care products which utilize various fruit extracts and enzymes for healthy, natural looking, glowing skin.

Juice Beauty always topped my list of favorite brands because if its simplistic approach to skin care, no muss no fuss and certainly no gimmicks. You just can’t get more natural than using fruit extracts and enzymes. With their foray into the world of color with ColorCare collection, I am certain that they will have a huge fan in me.
