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 maccosmetics.com 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?
