Teyana Taylor has partnered with MAC Cosmetics, and on Monday (June 15), the singer and music video director made the announcement. “Wow yo! I remember walking by the Mac store on 125th street coming from school, amazed at all the dope campaign ads spread across floor to ceiling windows & on other major department stores. MAC Cosmetics really inspired me because they were one of the first mainstream companies to fearlessly and unapologetically embrace women of color and the LGBTQ Community,” Taylor wrote on Instagram.

“That was big for me being a young black girl from Harlem telling myself that one day that would be me plastered in that window! Long story short, and by the grace of God, here I am with my own up and coming capsule collection for M•A•C!!!!!  On that note, I’m proud to officially announce my collaboration & partnership with Mac cosmetics!”

“I’m so grateful and excited to be sharing this beautiful collection I created with the MAC team and so happy the cat’s finally out the bag!” Taylor continued. “But most importantly, I’m hoping to inspire other young black women that anything and everything is possible & that our black is STUNNING!” Teyana Taylor’s collection is slated to drop next month.

“Over a year in the making, we are proud to finally announce our collaboration with the infinitely talented [Teyana Taylor]. The epitome of our core values and a self-proclaimed M•A•C girl since the age of 15 – Teyana boldly embraces artistry, unapologetically embodies originality, and commits herself to self-expression without boundaries, “MAC wrote in a statement on Instagram.

“I’m very excited to be partnering with a company like M•A•C who I’ve watched collaborate with strong women of colour over the years. I’ve been a fan of M•A•C ever since I was 15 years old and started experimenting with makeup, it was the first brand that made me like makeup,” Taylor said in a statement.

“I’m so grateful and excited to be sharing this beautiful collection I created with the M•A•C team but also hoping to inspire other young women that anything and everything is possible.”
