Swatch: MAC - Pink 4 Friday Lipstick


Nicki Minaj has made her name in the game and recently collaborated with MAC on a special edition lipstick to give her fans a taste of her signature pink pout, to celebrate the release of her debut album. The lipstick was sold online exclusively at www.maccosmetics.com for four Fridays following the album release date. November 26th was the first day the MAC Pink 4 Friday lippies went up for grabs.

The vibrant pink lipstick would become available online at midnight on each of those four Fridays. Buyers would cause a major lag on the MAC website to a point of complete browser crashes and even removal from checkout carts after claiming one for yourself. Within 25-40 minutes after midnight, they would usually be sold out, and potential buyers would be left with a message asking them to leave their e-mail addresses in order to be sent a reminder as soon as the following Pink Friday sale day comes rolling around.

Today, December 17th, was the last day to secure a Pink 4 Friday lipstick of your own.

The lipstick is a bright bubble gum pink with a satin finish.  The texture is creamy and the color payoff is great.  It's one of those colors that would look different on various skin tones.  It's similar to other pinks that MAC has available, but in it's own right, has its differences.  Pink 4 Friday is much more wearable than Saint Germain which is a super bright vivid pink, that can hardly be brought down to a wearable shade for many.  Pink 4 Friday seems like a perfect blend of Saint Germain and Pink Nouveau (a darker vivd pink).

  4. I believe that today is the last Friday for this lipstick. Its a shame. because i will probably not be able to purchase this lipstick. I am intrigued if it will suit me, since the only pink lipstick that looks right on me from the ones that’s are displayed on your blog is snob.

    Thank you for the blog. my blog is glamournme.blogspot.com
