Release Date + About the Launch
She’s one of the most versatile entertainers of her generation. An R&B superstar. Dancer. Choreographer. Actress. Model. Mother. Fitness aficionado. Songwriter. Producer. Director. And now, M·A·C collaborator. Unstoppable force Teyana Taylor channels her creativity, strength and sense of purpose into Spring 2020’s most hotly anticipated makeuplaunch.
The collaboration came naturally. Taylor embodies artistry boldly, originally and without boundaries, tapping into the heart of M·A·C. She’s also a longtime advocate for the LGBTQIA+ community, which she credits with embracing her at the start of her career. And long before her stardom, Taylor was an avid fan of M·A·C. Starting at age 15, she began mixing, matching and playing with M·A·C products to develop her own bespoke finishes, colours and textures.
That love for experimentation is at the core of M·A·C Teyana Taylor. The collection takes a refreshing approach to beauty – encouraging Taylor’s fans to create their own version of her style and vibe rather than copy looks. M·A·C Artists recommend mixing and remixing the shades each of Lipstick, Lipglass and Lip Pencil for custom looks on every skintone. Wear them alone, combine or layer in tribute to Teyana’s sense of creative adventure.
“Style, confidence and versatility as an artist are just a few of her superpowers,” says New York Based Senior National Artist Fatima Thomas, who has worked with Taylor. “They’re translated into this collection, with lip treats for every style mood.” Those chameleonic abilities are undeniable in the video for Taylor’s 2019 hit, ‘How You Want It,’ showcasing deep chocolates and caramel nudes on lips.
Thomas picks up on the vibe: “My fave combo is Lip Pencil in Hodgepodge and Lipstick in I Got A Man, topped with Lipglass in But Ain’t Got No Manners,” she says. But Mineralize Skinfinish, Taylor’s self-confessed favourite product, might be the star of this show. It all comes housed in electrically bright neon packaging –a reflection of her signature out-there style and a nod to the 90s, channeling the art and soul of this Harlem native.
