Nicki Minaj – the hip hop superstar, tweeted a picture of her new fragrance yesterday. The bottle looks like a mini statuesque figure of Minaj, complete with her signature pink tresses and gold chain.

According to Minaj, the fragrance smells like “angels playing”. Interesting description to say the least, so  I guess we should expect a light, playful heavenly scent even though the bottle screams bubble gum!

Named after her debut album, Pink Friday should be available in stores sometime near the end of September. The rapper has had much success with her previous products; like her MAC lipstick and very own Barbie doll, so I’m sure her Barbz will be lining up! I wonder if there will be limited edition sets that include her Pink Friday lipstick and nail color? That would be a nice extra!

Essie Marathin is creamy warm rosy pink. It goes on thick with just one coat and offers a good amount of shine. It’s a pretty fall appropriate color. It ties in well with the rest of the Yogaga collection, even though it’s pink, it still has a warmness and earthiness feel to it. It’s a classic dusty pink that helps complete the range of colors in the collection.

Essie Boxer Shorts is the pop of color in this limited edition collection. It’s a gorgeous deep lavender blue color. The formula is creamy and glossy. You get a solid first coat that’s streak-free. This color is so pretty and really  looked bright with the contrast of my summer tan. But at the same time, it still has an earthy richness to it, that richness is what makes it work with the fall season. With its athletic theme, it seems like this collection was launched just in time for the Olympics. I just love the manicures on the Olympic swimmers, have you been watching?

This month Essie introduces us to a new yoga inspired limited edition collection. The Yogaga collection features calming neutral shades and a touch of earthy colors. These office appropriate shades will help you relax and go into zen mode after a long busy day at the office.

Essie Yogaga is officially my favorite color in the collection and it just might be my go-to fall shade. It’s a sandstone beige with the perfect mix of warm and cool tones. It’s a creamy formula with lots of shine and it’s easy to apply. The first coat looks streaky, but it blends away after you apply the second coat. I really love this shade!

Multi-Platinum artist Lady Gaga is set to launch her very first fragrance, Lady Gaga Fame in September. The fragrance will be released through Gaga’s own Haus Laboratories.

Lady Gaga Fame is the first fragrance of its kind. It is the first black Eau de Parfum that sprays clear and stays invisible once sprayed. This patent pending innovative technology is the first to launch in the fragrance industry and so far it’s exclusive to Haus Laboratories. Gaga collaborated with several key players in the fashion industry to help create Lady Gaga Fame. Nick Knight helped design the bottle with a golden talon inspired top and Steven Klein directed the ad campaign.

Lady Gaga Fame goes beyond the norms just like Gaga herself. This fragrance is unique because it does not conform to the traditional structure used to create perfumes. Normally, perfumes have a top note, middle note and base note. The notes in Lady Gaga Fame interact together to highlight each note at the same time.

Lady Gaga Fame is inspired by the Belladonna, a toxic flower with poisonous berries. The fragrance is a blend of honey, saffron, apricot; with a floral mix of Tiger Orchid and Jasmine Sambac.
