Azealia Banks is cementing her place as an “It Girl” in the fashion and beauty realm at lightning speed. In fact, some feel the rapper is now more well-known for her fashion and beauty cred than her music. In the past year, she attended the 2012 MET Gala, appeared in the campaign for T by Alexander Wang and as previously reported, is slated to perform at Fashion’s Night Out at MAC Cosmetics Soho.

Banks’ performance will coincide with the launch of her lipstick with the beauty company, according to Glamazons Blog:

The “Van Vogue” rapper, who also appears in a campaign for Alexander Wang, is fronting the lipstick, “Yung Rapunxel,” which MAC describes as “a deep plum, cream Lipstick with an amplified, semi-matte finish.”

Much like Nicki Minaj’s “Pink Friday” lipstick, Azealia’s product will be limited-edition, available at MAC stores in the US only from September 6, 2012 through September 20, 2012 and online at a day early on September 5th.

What do you think of Azealia Banks’ MAC Cosmetics lipstick? Is it true that she’s more popular for her fashion “It Girl” status than her music? Does it matter?

    I’d never heard of her until recently. Went to YouTube to listen to her music. Awful, just plain awful.

    That being said, I do LOVE the lipstick color and thinks it looks lovely on her. So, in summation, it’s a wash.

    I will most definitely buy. This must be the only time a celebrity has swayed me to buy a product they endorse. Love her that much.

      Me too! I have never been swayed by any of my favorite celebs to buy anything but Azealia makes me want it! And it’s also a plus that i’ve been looking for a lippy in this shade.

    She should learn to shut up and concentrate on developing and crafting her art, whatever it is. She irrrrrks the hell out of me!

    This color matches perfectly with the dress I’m wearing to my 10yr high school reunion! I’ll be purchasing it!
