The MAC Taraji P. Henson Collection

somebody in the makeup world lastly pertained to their senses as well as did a collab with Taraji P. Henson.
Good morning, glory! delighted Caturday. Sper ca ai dormit bine.

So, honey. HUH-KNEE. I haven’t enjoyed empire in ages (I dunno what happened… I believe it just got as well redonk for me, as well as I had to peace-the-heck out), however that show will be permanently ingrained in my mind as the magical, mystical location where the world found the hurricane of fierce that is Taraji P. Henson.


If I might only channel a tenth of Cookie’s sass as well as mindset into my fingertips, I might policy the world! (Or at least get a manage on my condo.)

I believe Taraji’s awesome. Yeah, she’s stunning (those cheekbones as well as lips, WOW), however I likewise checked out that she didn’t get her huge acting break up until later in life. She just kept working as well as reaching for the stars.

And now she has her own MAC collection.

Yes, somebody somewhere is doing the cabbage patch.

Oh, wait — that somebody is me, as well as it’s happening ideal right here in my office chair, ideal AT THIS MOMENT!

With six pieces, half of them new as well as half of them re-promotes from the long-term line, the collection is on the smaller side…

I know, I would’ve favored a 20-piece Taraji collection with all new things instead, however let’s see what we’ve got…

MAC Mineralize Skin surface natural in highlight the reality ($33)

Among the new pieces, it’s all about the two Mineralize Skinfinishes ($33 each) in Taraji glow as well as highlight the reality for me.

On my NC42 skin, highlight the reality appears like a peachy coral with golden shimmer, as well as Taraji glow appears like a peachy coral with pink shimmer.

Wearing highlight the Truth, Taraji glow as well as strip Me Down Lipstick
I don’t understand if it’s just a odd technique of the light in my house, however both of them appear quite similar in swatches side by side… When I apply them on my cheeks, though, Taraji glow POPS a lot more than highlight the Truth, as well as I bet it’s since of the former’s pinkish pearl.

Taraji Glow’s surface looks shinier as well as a lot more pronounced to me, so it seems a lot more dramatic. If you’re trying to find a bolder highlight from something in the collection, that’s the method to go.

Both are incredibly pretty, though. It’s difficult to select which one I like better…but I’d most likely opt for Taraji Glow, since with the pink in the mix, it might double as a highlighter as well as a blush.

MAC Taraji P. Henson Matte Lipstick in strip Me Down ($17)
Strip Me Down Lipstick is NOT playin’. It’s a deep matte beige with, like, a ’90s-style matte finish, so it’s extremely flat as well as doesn’t show any type of light whatsoever. It must look charming as a nude on medium as well as dark skin tones, however the formula is unforgiving… It’s on the drier side, as well as after using it for about 45 minutes, my vertical lip lines take center stage at Coachella.

P.S. Taraji, if you’re reading this, let’s kick it sometime. I feel like you’d get my jokes.

Granted, a lot of of them are incredibly corny, however I believe you’d absolutely get the refs. My door’s always open if you want to split a bottle of rosé as well as enjoy Gilmore Girls.

I’m just sayin’.
