Nicki Minaj Gets the Pink Lip

Nicki Minaj, the rapper famous for her fierce collaborations with some of the top-selling artists has a lot to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.

Not only did she just release her debut album, Pink Friday, to rave reviews, but she is also getting a limited-edition pink lipstick named after her by M.A.C. cosmetics, which will be available exclusively online for four consecutive Fridays only beginning November 26th. Looks like the split-personality lyricist has one more thing in common with Lil' Kim.

In stores nationwide and on iTunes now.

Color Me Glad!

During the holidays you can always find the hottest limited editions of makeup sets, compacts and more. For the past two years I've had my eyes on Nordstrom's Color Palette, but somehow Santa never delivered the set. This year - I took matters into my own hands and bought this beauty buy.

If you're a glamour girl, you're going to go ga-ga over this must-have. It includes every eye shadow imaginable, plus an awesome array of liners and blushes that believe it or not - complement most skin tones (it gets this BG's stamp of approval). Plus, the sleek packaging gives it panache. You really can't beat $29 (it's a $150 value!) for the quality. It definitely makes the perfect gift this season for your sister, mom, BFF or YOU!

Available at www.nordstrom.com for $29
