Nicki Minaj’s second album “Roman Reloaded” is IN STORES NOW! It’s been quite the year for Nicki, who has landed many business sponsorships, and is the epitome of brand marketing. A nail polish deal with OPI, she is also the Viva Glam Spokesperson for M.A.C 2012. She also developed her own M.A.C lipstick, Pink Friday, as well as her own fragrance and a clothing line. She is quite the busy ‘Barbie.’ What can we expect from her clothing line? As per this mogul in the making, she says her line will be “non-vanilla” as seen with other rapper lines. Think fun, colorful, runway and Harajuku. But of course, did you expect anything else?
In her interview with Allure she mentions her brief encounter with Jay-Z, as he congratulates her for all of her success, she says to Jay…
“I’m coming for you, I’m coming for your spot Mr. Mogul.”

Nicki is all about playing ‘dress-up’ and her cartoonish voice appeals to the kids, however…I am quite glad that her style of rap does not allow for most children to fully understand her content.
Nicki is a devoted M.A.C Cosmetics fan and only uses their products; she’s never used any other product…her color that spring from her ultimate favorite, Pink Nouveau. She says that when she wants to look ‘halfway cute’ she put on a liquid liner on top of her eye, heavy lashes, color her eyebrows. She’ll wear the lipsticks non-stop and Pink Nouvueau.
To Re-Create Nicki’s Cover Look: Eye Liner: Boot Black, Eye Shadow: Blanc, Cork, Lashes: 44, Sheertone Blush: Pink Swoon, Amplified Creme Lipstick: Saint Germain,
The Makeup How-To: Dust on beige and brown eye shadows, trace the lashes with black liquid liner, and glue together two seperate pairs of false lashes. Dust on the Cotton Candy pink blush on the cheeks and dab on the pink lipstick.
