Lady Gaga vs. Rihanna vs. Nicki Minaj: Who Has the Best Line of MAC Cosmetics? – Readers Poll
What do Lady Gaga, Rihanna and Nicki Minaj have in common other than their career paths? Well, you could argue lots, but one thing that the trio of ladies definitely share a common bond over is their love for makeup, particularly MAC cosmetics.
Over the years, Gaga has teamed up with the makeup dynasty several times, and Nicki Minaj also hopped on board her own MAC Viva Glam campaign. Now, the most recent pop diva to team up with MAC is Rihanna, who just announced her collection in late February 2013. After scouring for pictures of their most popular cosmetics from MAC (which you can view below), we want to know which songstress you think has the best line of MAC makeup.
Lady Gaga has the most MAC products on the market, so naturally her collection is a bit more diverse than Ms. Minaj and the ‘Diamonds’ hit maker. First, she joined forced with ’80s pop diva Cyndi Lauper to release her pale pink Viva Glam lipstick along with a matching lip glass, mascara and eyeliner. Some time after that, she and the masterminds at MAC collaborated again to release a beige shade of lipstick and matching gloss in honor of her fans and her rise to fame.
While Gaga is a veteran, Rihanna has just been announced as MAC’s newest celebrity makeup designer, unveiling her collection via Instagram last week. In pretty pink and rose gold packaging, the “RiRi + MAC” products reflect the singer’s cosmetics aesthetics, with a nearly black lipstick, a deep crimson gloss, a beautiful quad of neutral eye shadows, plus more. Rihanna plans to release her collection to coincide with her Diamonds tour date at the Barclays Center on May 4. The first item to hit shelves will be her red RiRi Woo lipstick, and more RiRi MAC cosmetics will start popping up in the summer, as well.
Finally, there’s Nicki Minaj’s super bright Viva Glam collection, the second and most notable of her ventures with MAC. The Harajuku Barbie went all out when it came to colors, crafting a pastel lavender lipstick shade with its own matching lip glass. Before this shade dropped, Minaj could be seen on posters with Latino singer Ricky Martin, as she and the ‘Livin’ la Vida Loca’ hit maker were partnered for a joint collection that boasted a pretty coral lipstick and lip glass by Nicki.
