I just got wind that MAC is launching another celebrity inspired makeup line and I couldn’t be more excited. Typically, I admire these mini collections from afar. Probably because the colors aren’t always as wearable as I’d like. But they’re finally releasing a line that I’m truly happy about.
This time, their muse of choice is Taraji P Henson. But instead of using her infamous character Cookie Lyons as inspiration, they opted for hues that Taraji herself would wear.
She’s all about bronzy, glowy skin, a bold winged eye, and the perfect nude lips.
That’s exactly what I’m looking for. Where do I sign up?
One glance at the collection and I was sold. I mean…. just take a look at the Mineral Skin Finish (MSF) powders. Are they not the most beautiful things you’ve ever laid your eyes on?
I need Taraji Glow Mineral Skin Finish in my possession like yesterday! That beautiful bronze powder has me absolutely mesmerized.
Included in the collection is a nude lippie that I’m also coveting. Listen, the last thing I need is another nude lipstick but I still haven’t quite found that elusive perfect shade of nude. I’m crossing my fingers that “Strip Me Down” is what I’ve been waiting for. Strip Me Down is described as a deep-toned beige (matte formula). It appears to be a darker shade of nude than what I currently own which is why I’m really looking forward to trying it.
The rest of the collection consists of 2 mascaras, a liquid liner, and a makeup brush. I’m curious to see if the liner and mascaras have a darker pigment than what’s currently available from MAC.
