“Bye Felicia!, Boo boo Kitty”, sound familiar? These words are famous clap backs from Cookie Lyon. Who, what, huh?Cookie Lyon (played by Taraji P Henson) is a character in the hit TV series Empire. The series follows a black-owned record label, Empire Records, owned by the Lyon family. Cookie is sassy, hard core and can shut it down like no one’s watching! Her clap backs are legendary!
I am an Empire fanatic, and I cannot wait for the shows return at the end of next month.
I was busy writing a blog post last night, when I looked went through my Instagram feed, as one does at midnight on a Tuesday night,when MAC dropped the bombshell announcing their collaboration with award-winning actress, Taraji on their Instagram page
The statement released on MAC’S Instagram page was “Taraji P. Henson has won the world over with her fearless performances, powerhouse confidence and charismatic spark. We’re thrilled to announce she is joining forces with MAC for an upcoming collaboration.”
According to @trendmood1, Called M.A.C Taraji, the collection is made up of six items, three of which are limited edition. They include black eyeliner, mascara, and a brush.
The three limited edition shade items in the collection are
Strip Me Down – Deep tone beige (Matte)
MAC Mineralize Skin Finish
Highlight the Truth – Soft bronze coral with golden shimmer
MAC Mineralize SkinFinish natural
Taraji Glow – Reddish brown
These look like they would be stunning on deeper skin tones . . . #rejoicewoc
The collection launches next month in the US and there is no word yet if it will be hitting South African shores. I sure hope so . . . Are you praying that the MAC Taraji collection will hit our shores and do you watch Empire?
I can’t help it, I want to share two of my fave Cookie Lyon quotes:
Clap Back 1
Clap Back 2
Until next time,
Stay blessed and beautiful
Embrace your inner Cookie (oooooh, that sounds a bit wrong . . .)
Love you lots and lots
