Big news for fans of Empire or Taraji P. Henson (so, that’s every single one of our readers, right?) — Taraji is collaborating with MAC on a makeup line called MAC Taraji.

According to Fashionista, the collection will launch on MAC.com on September 6 and in select MAC stores on September 8. It includes six products: a “deep tone beige” matte lipstick called “Strip Me Down,” a mascara called “Haute & Naughty,” highlighting and contouring powders called “Highlight The Truth” and “Taraji Glow,” an eyeliner and a brush.

We’re totally lusting over all the products — and we know Cookie Lyon would too. According to the Cut, the collection is based around “the quintessential nude lip and perfectly defined noir eye.” So, like this flawless look:


"Taraji P. Henson has won the world over with her fearless performances, powerhouse confidence and charismatic spark," said a MAC press release. We'll say! We’re counting down the days until September 6.
