MAC x Taraji P. Henson Collection is Supersweet
MAC x Taraji P. Henson: Taraji Glow Mineralize Skinfinish NaturalReddish-brown shades are truly IN for Fall. All it takes is looking at Chanel's newest collection. I used this skinfinish as a blush (nearly everyone did). It's VERY PIGMENTED! So a little goes a long way. The color is absolutely beautiful and looked great on my cheeks (see picture below). I think another thing I hated seeing, were comments that this collection would only work for black people! LOL That is so not the case! As with any collection, sometimes what looks good on one may not look good on another. There are so many factors involved (skin coloring, hair color, eye color etc)! Just because someone black put this together, doesn't mean it wouldn't look good on whites, hispanics, asians, italians etc.
MAC x Taraji P. Henson: Highlight The Truth Mineralize Skin FinishSo glad she did a highlighter! To me it has a beautiful peachy pink tone. What I liked about this highlighter is that it BLENDED really good with the blush. You don't just see HIGHLIGHTER! I swirled it into my blush (already on my cheeks) and it just gave me a nice glow. I also applied it on my nose.
MAC x Taraji P Henson: Strip Me Down LipstickThe Strip Me Down Lipstick looks different on EVERYBODY! LOL You see it on my hand here, but if you look at the MAC pics below, it is swatched on various skin tones. And ALL are different! I'm glad it worked on me, because I almost didn't purchase it. It complimented the entire look. Some may not like the way it looks on them.
And here are how all three products looked on me...
MAC x Taraji P. Henson Chicago Event (via maccosmetics snapchat) & Final Thoughts
Here are some pics of the MAC x Taraji P. Henson Chicago Event. I thought Taraji looked beautiful and her beautiful personality definitely showed through the live shots. She's down to earth! She easily communicated and talked to customers. She was at ease. Laughed! Very humble, thanking everyone for their purchases. She did a great job with the collection. The quality was superb. As far as MAC, I hope they have more collections featuring African American men & women. I've always wanted them to do a Prince Collection. LOL I was disappointed that there weren't MORE QUANTITIES of this collection. I wanted to buy a second set, because this is a great everyday look (for me). I was also disappointed in the plain black MAC packaging. I feel at least her name (signature) could've been on it. I hope I didn't complain too much, but I couldn't let this pass and not say anything.
