For a rising female rapper, Azealia Banks is definitely one to watch. Born and bred in Harlem, this 21 year-old phenom has taken the music and style worlds by storm with her trademark long locks and wild ensembles. Signed to Interscope, Banks made her debut back in 2011 when she released “212”, a quick-witted rap song with hipster beats. Soon thereafter, the fashion elite took notice of her unique style that combines urban, cool, downtown and punk. Not only did the fashion elite take notice, the beauty industry did too. MAC recently collaborated with the petite rapper and created a limited edition lipstick shade called Yung Rapunzel, a deep plum lipstick with an amplified semi-matte finish. The limited edition lip color hits stores on September 6th until September 20th. You can also purchase it online beginning September 5th. Take it from me, this shade will be sold out very fast being that it’s the “it color” for fall!
Perfectly in tune with the rise in multiethnic beauty consumers reported via WWD.com, this fall, beauty collections are taking a worldly approach to beauty that is truly exciting. One such fall collection is MAC’s Styleseeker, a gorgeously decadent collection of eye shadows, lipsticks, nail lacquers and blushes dipped in rich hues that work well with all skin tones and convey a sense of global exoticism. This collection has my name written all over it. It makes me so anxious for fall – my favorite season. If you are a glamour girl, boho chic princess or downtown diva, there is something for you in this exquisite collection. This collection hits stores and counters on August 23rd.
