M.A.C Cosmetics has a pretty stellar track record for employing larger-than-life ambassadors for its Viva Glam lipstick range. From RuPaul to Rihanna, the cult make-up brand has worked with everyone (most recently Taraji P. Henson) so the latest ambassador isn't exactly out of nowhere. Smart-talking, chart-topping and a seriously make-up girl, Nicki Minaj is the latest A-lister to put her name and face to a  M.A.C product.

Nicki Minaj x M.A.C is coming to your make-up bag

The controversial hip-hop star has designed two lipstick shades for the beauty giant - but the real surprise here is the fact they're not shades of candy pink or ruby red like you'd expect. Nope, they're pretty and versatile nudes that are 24/7 wearable. Think: a soft coral pink named 'Niki's Nude' or a creamy mid-tone pink called 'The Pinkprint'. And if these two shades aren't your jam (we get it: a nude lip can be tricky), not to worry, M.A.C are also releasing an additional 24 shades of lipstick and lipglass products so you can find your perfect one.

The M.A.C x Nicki Minaj collections hits stores September 7. Visit maccosmetics.com.au for more info.
