  2. i’m not throwing shade, but… August 24, 2012

    Wow! The company’s always chase hype. This gurl hasn’t done anything that requires endorsements. I would rather a Tony Braxton, Memory of Whitney, Mariah or some other non rap “celeb” lipstick

  5. justsomekid August 24, 2012

    I LOOOOVE that colour. Very gothic but versatile enough to suit any style. Certainly better than Nicki’s stupid Hello Kitty/Polly Pocket bubble-yum hue for 8 year olds trynna look like Bratz Dolls.

  12. Speaks Truth August 24, 2012

    Yessssss Azealia Banks!!!!!! Remember that she’s getting all these accomplishments on her OWN, not with a bunch of male rappers besides her or a big team or features on tracks or better yet AN ALBUM!!!! Yessss Azelia imagine the possibilities and she hasn’t even drop her ALBUM YET OR A MAJOR MAJOR HIT!!! Good job KUDOS!!!!

    • RDK August 24, 2012

      are you that stupid what do you mean banks is doing all this BY HER SELF,you hate nicki that much that you have to make up sh-t all the time to try to tear her down and put someone else up,and for you,er info nicki did must of the things she is doing way before her first album…….you,er bias as was talking sh-t about nicki that she is copying others when her lipstick line came out,but now banks is doing it you are getting your p-sy wet[gratz to banks though no shade]you f-cking bias piece of sh-t…what are you talking about u finally see a rapper doing something everything in your comment is a nicki basing you are so sad….if u think banks is doing her alone you are d-mbber than i gave you cred for.

      • What u gon do when I appear??!! August 24, 2012

        You’re obviously pressed about A.B. for some reason. Could it be that Nicki is no longer a RAPPER and a newer, younger, more creative girl is taking her shine? Or is that Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded is barely gold after almost 5 months? Or how about the face that she’s on a decline after her 2nd album?

        You mad. LOL

      • FAF August 24, 2012

        Ignore this ugly a*** f*** look at his avatar some ugly broke N***** from Tumblr… LOL

        NICKI>>> that’s why you uggs bring her up on a constant basis

        American Idol >> This chalky black lipstick

  13. Mely B August 24, 2012

    Congrats Azealia! The color is all that – great for fall & she looks great in that photo.

    • isabel August 24, 2012

      I agree! i’m white, but i think that shade will still be the business when i wear it lol…but it will definitely look amazing on darker skinned ladies….i’ve never seen lipstick look more gorgeous then when Azealia wears it. She has perfect lips~

  14. Van vogue August 24, 2012

    Wow she’s getting that recognition with out undeserved hype and and huge act co signing her. I think she is going to be to Nikki what foxy was to Kim. You can say what you want but she is certainly winning.

    • FAF August 24, 2012

      She would have to sell some records to be ANYONE’s competition… Nicki is 29 she not gonna beef w/ no Local FLOP 20 year old.. SMH

  15. purp August 24, 2012

    nicki minaj was NOT the first female rapper to have an Lipstick with MAC some of you need to get your facts right.. smdh a damn shame.. anyway congrats to Azealia Banks she is doing her thing. All its going to take is ONE high profile celebrity to rock this color … well you know the rest.. the fashion world really does love this chic.

  16. pocketbook princess August 24, 2012

    That’s my favorite color to rock during the Autumn and Winter.

  17. cecily August 24, 2012

    The reason why azealia is getting attention is because she is hugely, hugely talented! Even her haters say “she needs to watch her attitude and cuss less, but she got bars”. It’s hard to deny. She isn’t all about a blonde ponytail or an a$$ inflated with a bike pump. We all know that for a girl her complexion, no matter how beautiful, if she wasn’t a genuine big talent, nobody would be checking for her. She got where she is on talent. She’s getting covers and fashion deals because she has charisma and that star quality

    • BitchICan’tEvenSpellWelfare August 24, 2012

      @Cecily, see you’ve told the truth & people cannot take it.

      Ladies & Gentlemen, the world is STILL very much biased against people who have a darker skin tone, regardless of how beautiful they are. Sorry to stick a fork in your so-called “post racial” ideology.

      The fact is A B is beautiful but she has gotten where she is b/c she is talented. She is fresh, innovative and, plainly, dope.

      If you can’t take her, you’re probably too used to championing the lessors who are light-skinned and untalented but are given the time of day b/c they are read as “beautiful.” Yawn.

      Yeah, I said it….WHAT ? !

      • FAF August 24, 2012

        No one cares ugly… so we supposed to applaud her cuz she black like celie from color purple????

        NICKI IS WINNING!!!

      • jamilaa August 25, 2012

    Why is a supposedly urban blog visited daily by white supremacists? Shouldn’t you be on rush limbaughs blog or something?
