Nicki Minaj’s pink lipstick on sale & Choosing the right shade of pink for you

After much anticipation, Nicki Minaj’s new limited edition lipstick, Pink 4 Friday ($14.50), will be available online* only starting today for four consecutive Fridays (through Dec. 17). A Collaboration with MAC Cosmetics, the lipstick was made to coincide with the release of her debut album, Pink Friday.

****Due to high demand, this product has sold out.****

Choosing the right shade of pink lipstick for you

The bright bubblegum-pink color of Nikki’s new lipstick is gorgeous, but it won’t look great on everyone. When choosing pink lipstick, it’s important to choose the right shade based on your skin complexion.

Warm Skin Tones

If your skin tone is warm, then rich pinks like fuchsia will look great against your complexion, including Nikki’s Pink Fiday 4. In fact, the darker your skin tone, the more pigment you can wear, but stay away from light pale pinks, as it will make you look washed out (see the below Jennifer Lopez example). Those with olive skin tones are the luckiest, because almost any shade of pink will look great against your complexion.

The pink lipstick worn by Jennifer Lopez looks odd against her bronzed skin.

Kim Kardashian uses MAC's Angel lipstick with NARS Turkish Delight lip gloss on top. The colors look great with her olive skin tone.

Cool Skin Tones

Blue based pinks work best for those of you who have lighter complexions. Stay away from hot pink, as it can look too intense and overpowering against your skin. Try mauve, light and nude pink colors.

This fuchsia hue was not the best shade of pink for Jessica Simpon's light skin.

  1. great info about what color to choose! i can’t stand it when people wear the wrong shade, it just stands out! and matching your lipstick to your outfit is awful, when will people stop trying to do that?
