Not that we REALLY needed an excuse to hit up Fashion’s Night Out or anything (after all, we were pretty much sold after Taylor Swift and Justin Bieber’s adorable PSA). But helllooo! Now that we’ve heard Azealia Banks will debut her very own MAC lipstick in the New York MAC store that same evening, we’re SO there. Yep, you read that right! The hip hop star has teamed up with the cosmetics company on a brand new hue, appropriately titled ’Yung Rapunxel.’ It’s a totally gorgeous shade of deep, dark purple, much like the one she sported on the cover of VIBE earlier this month. So obviously, we HAVE to have it.

Azealia’s not the first musician to join forces with the beauty brand (remember Nicki Minaj’s ’Pink Friday’ collab?!). And although Azealia’s version will only be available for a limited time, fingers crossed she follows in Nicki’s footsteps with her very own Diva Glam line. For now, though, get a sneak peek here, and mark your calendars for September 6 for the lipstick’s in-store debut. Not in New York City? Not to worry- you can still score the shade online (a day early!!) on
