Another day, another M.A.C Cosmetics collab announcement. This time with the one and only Taraji P. Henson, a.k.a. Cookie Lyon of Empire. With her fearless and remarkable performance on the acclaimed television show, and her on-point red carpet beauty looks, we’re not in the least bit shocked to see the actress and brand join forces.
Although the collection consists of existing formulas, these staples have Cookie’s name written all over them; there’s a matte beige lipstick, a precise black eyeliner, and bronze and coral highlighter. That said, if you’re experiencing major Empire withdrawal (we feel you) and wish to channel the Mother of hip-hop before the Season 3 premiere (September 21, mark your calendars!), then get thee to the nearest M.A.C counter or maccosmetics.ca come September 6th.
In the interim, here to help tide you over we’ve matched every single #MACTaraji product with our favourite Cookie Lyon moments. You know, given that Taraji P. Henson is Cookie Lyon, and vice versa. Indulge!
