Rapper Trina (real name: Katrina Laverne Taylor) has released two signature color lipsticks with KA’OIR Cosmetics. The KAO’IR brand is known for their wide selection of vibrant color lipsticks, including hard-to-find shades of blue and green. Trina’s lipsticks — a pink and a red — are more wearable than some of the brand’s other offerings, but still pack a punch.
The first Trina-branded color, “NEON Rockstarr,” was released on November 25, 2011. Trina worked with the brand’s CEO Keyshia Ka’oir to design this hot pink shade.
“During the creation stage, we came up with a color that the everyday woman can wear; but of course with a twist. So the NEON pink color was created to bring out the ‘Rockstarr’ in women worldwide. That is how NEON Rockstarr was born.” – Keyshia Ka’oir
She was brought back to create a second lipstick for the brand’s “Super Kute” collection. Trina’s “Show Off” lipstick is a bright matte red. She starred in an ad campaign alongside Teyana Taylor‘s blue “Harlem Knight” lipstick and Keyshia Ka’oir’s white “Virgin” lipstick.
All three lipsticks were released February 14, 2014.
“After the success of my first KA’OIR signature lipstick color, Neon Rockstarr, it was no doubt in my mind to become the face of a new color that I enjoy wearing. I’ve always admired the complexity of Keyshia, and her drive to develop a trend-setting brand from the ground up. “SHOW OFF” represents me well and I know my fans worldwide will love the new lip color from KA’OIR Cosmetics.” — Trina
