In general, I don’t get excited about celebrity collaborations with makeup brands. I have sensitive skin and breakout easily. So I’m extremely careful about the types of makeup and skincare products I use. But when the news hit that one of my fave actresses Taraji P. Henson (who also happens to be from my hometown area *and* college alma mater) was teaming up with M.A.C Cosmetics for a limited edition six-piece makeup collection, I knew I had to get something from the line.
Once I saw pics of the collection — which includes a lipstick, mascara, eyeliner, two mineral skin finishes (both of which are currently sold out) and a makeup brush — I immediately decided that the Strip Me Down matte lipstick (a deep beige creme with a mauve-ish undertone) had to get purchased ASAP.
I’m wearing it in the picture above and wore it this past weekend while out and about running errands on Saturday. I like it — a wholeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee lot. I love that it’s a versatile nude shade that you can rock during the day with a swipe of black mascara or at night with a sultry smokey eye.
It’s long-lasting and will absolutely be a mainstay in my makeup arsenal. In fact, I loved it so much that I ordered another tube (retails for $17) on Sunday just to make sure I had another at-the-ready in case this shade sells out soon.
Keep it stylish,
