Azealia Banks teams with M·A·C for limited edition lipstick | Style News

Dominating as the new it-girl for music and fashion, Azealia Banks is now claiming territory in the makeup world by teaming with M·A·C Cosmetics for a limited edition lipstick.

The dark plum-coloured lip paint created for the Harlem native is named after one of her alter egos, “Yung Rapunxel,” and will be debuted in New York at M·A·C’s Fashion’s Night Out event.

Banks will be taking center stage in M·A·C’s SoHo store on September 6th, with the lipstick going on sale from then until the 20th. If you’re in the area, not only can you be one of the first to purchase the lipstick in-store but you can also catch a live performance from the rapper.

With the new endeavour, Banks follows in the footsteps of both Lady Gaga and fellow femcee Nicki Minaj who have both had successful collaborations with M·A·C. But with Banks offering a darker, edgier colour than your standard Barbie pink, this should be a more exciting collaboration for make up fans to check out.

The limited edition lipstick goes on sale online from September 5th, and in all New York M·A·C stores September 6-20.
