MAC Viva Glam Taraji P. Henson & Jussie Smollett Spring 2017

For its spring 2017 Viva Glam collection, MAC Cosmetics has tapped Taraji P. Henson and Jussie Smollett, stars of the hit show Empire, to be ambassadors. Ariana Grande has had the spokesperson honors for the last year, but since MAC switches this role annually for this product, it’s nice to finally know who will be taking her place. Earlier in 2016, Henson created a collaboration collection based on Empire with MAC, which flew right off the shelves, so tapping this acting duo as the front for the campaign was a smoothly transitioned choice for the brand.

The new MAC Viva Glam Taraji P. Henson & Jussie Smollett spring 2017 collection has an international launch date of February 2017, and the products will be available for purchase at MAC beauty counters and online at Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s. It’s always a great thing to hear, when MAC is coming out with another Viva Glam collection for a multitude of reasons. Not only do the lipstick and lip-glass look stunning, but all of the proceeds also go toward assisting people of all ages that have been affected by AIDS and HIV.

For 2017, we’re seeing a vibrant hot pink that will be jaw-dropping in spring. Bright and daring shades like that will keep you confident and your smile bright – knowing that your purchase is going for a good cause will give you an even better reason to keep that smile on your face. So the hot pink stick goes perfectly well with its fuchsia lip-glass counterpart. Your lips couldn’t ask for more.

Even though we don’t have the exact dates for the release yet, we can at least know they will be out in February – hopefully we’ll have them right in time for Valentine’s Day, because you can’t go wrong with killer pink lips! But you’ll want to keep an eye out for when the exact day is released, because these products are known to come and go in the blink of an eye. With such a beautiful product paired with such a beautiful cause, it’s hard to keep these things in stock for long.

So you’ll want to note the date and have that credit card ready so you won’t have to be one of those poor souls left in the dust. No one wants to be in that position of seeing this beautiful color on the streets on so many smiling faces and having to wait for a rerelease or a secondary seller to get the product in stock.

I expect this product to be even hotter than in past years, with Henson coming back for another MAC collab. Empire is hot, Henson and Smollett are hot, and most of all these new shades are hot.

The lipstick will go for €20 and the lip-glass will go for €19.
