I Got My Hands on Azealia Banks x MAC Cosmetics ‘Yung Rapunxel’ Lipstick PLUS Pics from The Glam Network Dinner


*jumps up and down in heels* New York Fashion Week is finally here! I feel like I’ve been preparing for it since forever (OK, maybe just the last week of summer since I was too busy luxuriating on vaca and gallivanting around New York) and I am so geeked to hit all my favorite shows!

The official toast to #NYFW is always The Glam Network dinner with Amex Fashion which is essentially a family reunion with all my beloved fashion and beauty blogger favorites. I got all dressed up to hit the event last night and as I was getting ready to leave the office, I got a package in the mail which I like to think of as a little gift from my beauty fairy godmother (aka the good folks at MAC): the new Azealia Banks x MAC Cosmetics “Yung Rapunxel” lipstick. *UPDATE: This limited edition lipstick is no longer available but the closest lip shade from MAC is Cyber, which I also love.


Not only do I love Azealia (whipping my hair around in her honor right now) but that color is gorgeous! It’s a deep plum that is very dramatic, dark and sexy. Perfect for Fall!

To be honest, I was a bit apprehensive about wearing it at first, thinking: How will this look on my skin? Am I sure I want to go this bold, I never wear lipstick? Blah blah blah.

But I’m so glad I got over it and put it on. I think it ended up looking cute, if I must say so myself. But you be the judge:

Do you love it?

At the Glam Network dinner, I enjoyed a delish three-course meal and cocktails while catching up with almost every blogger I adore and dancing around with the founder to Rihanna‘s “Only Girl in The World.” Yes, that happened!

Check out pics from the night:
