In just four short years, Lil Nas X has already risen to fame and his online presence is keeping the internet alive. Lately, it looks like the rapper is keeping busy in the fashion and beauty worlds. After his runway debut for Coach’s New York Fashion Week show and (a performance at Vogue World) last week, he’s officially ticked another achievement off his resume.
In August, the 23-year-old was named YSL Beauty’s latest U.S. Ambassador, and his first-ever makeup campaign with the brand has finally kicked off. In a recently released clip, Lil Nas X can be seen dancing and walking in the desert while applying skin tone, mascara and shimmery eyeshadow. He goes to a vanity stacked with the brand’s new lipstick, The Bold, and applies a bold red color (duh) to his lips, followed by a spritz of Y Le Parfum.
Priced at $39 and available in 12 coveted shades, YSL Beauty’s latest lip formula is dubbed its “most innovative formula” and is highly pigmented with a buildable glossy finish.

The “Montero” musician also dropped a hidden gem in the new campaign – so an unreleased song serves as the theme.
“And the category is @yslbeauty #yslbeautypartner,” Lil Nas X wrote in a recent Instagram post.
