M.A.C x Taraji P. Henson! OMG!

So M.A.C. decided to drop a virtual bomb on us and announced their next upcoming celebrity collaboration!

MAC Taraji

OMG! LOOK AT THAT IMAGE!

I immediately wished that M.A.C. still made their promo postcards that became collector’s items.  As a matter of fact, I want a poster of this. This is so amazing in many ways! First of all, beauty companies usually rely on the 20 somethings to sell makeup. Second of all, this is a black, chocolate woman! Even though M.A.C. has been a trailblazer when it comes to  using diversity in their ad campaigns. Third, this is Taraji aka Cookie Lyon! She is so fabulous that I can’t take it. I am ready for the black girl magic!

This collection will be released in select areas on September 6 online and September 8 in the US and internationally later on in September.  It’s a small collection, but I hope this does well (which I know it is going to as every black girl and Empire fan has been freaking out ever since they announced).  I hope this will encourage the powers that be at M.A.C. to bring out an entire colour collection.

M.A.C x Taraji: THE DETAILS

There is a mascara, two Mineralized Skinfinish Natural in Taraji Glow and Highlight The Truth, Lipstick in Strip Me Down, Penultimate Eye Liner and the 187 duo fibre brush.

I have not bought anything from a M.A.C. limited edition collection in more than a year, but I have my eyes on the lipstick and one of the Mineralized Skinfinishes Natural.  Please check the M.A.C. website for more information.
