I can’t rap to save my life, but you already knew this, right?
Oh, what I wouldn’t give to be able to spit bars on the fly…
Because if I had to battle someone on a street corner, I’d be so screwed!
But hey, I guess if I’m ever overwhelmed with the urge to drop some beats, I could just wear the new MAC Lipstick in Yung Rapunxel ($15) instead.
This creamy deep plum is the product of MAC’s new collaboration with rising New York rapper/singer/lyricist Azealia Banks.
Azealia Banks, 1991
The name, Yung Rapunxel, is also her alter ego.
I’d never heard of her before the lipstick, but I gotta say — I’m diggin’ her style. It kinda has a ’90s house music vibe to it…if Lil’ Kim lived in the house. Or something like that.
As for the lipstick, I like. It’s definitely dramatic, and I think the semi-matte finish goes well with it.
I get the sense that Yung is one of those colors that would look really fab on gals with very light or very dark skin tones.
What do ya think? If you’re ready to make music with Yung Rapunxel, you can find it online now at maccosmetics.com (in the US only though), and in New York City MAC stores until September 20 (it’s limited edition).
