September brings a lot with it: back to school time for the kids, a general “fresh start” mantra for some, the return of some of our favourite TV shows and, this year, the MAC Taraji P. Henson makeup collection. While the 45-year-old award-winning actress has been on the scene for some time, it’s only the last few years with her have-no-mercy role in Empire that we’ve really seen her.
The collaboration with MAC, a brand known for its celebrity partnerships, among many other things, hits online on September 6 and in stores September 8 (just in time for the season premiere of Empire, which airs September 21). The collab marries the cosmetic house’s favourite formulas with some flawless, powerhouse shades and products fit for Taraji and her Cookie.
The collection brings six new products, including a lipstick, two illuminating face powders, a mascara, an eyeliner and a makeup brush. See the entire collection below and get ready to shop when this collection launches—we have a feeling it’s going to sell out very, very quickly.
