Every time we start to think that MAC has already collaborated with every celebrity and entertainment franchise imaginable (Selena, Trolls, Ariana Grande, Star Trek — you get it), we're caught off guard by yet another genius partnership. The latest? Taraji P. Henson. Yes, MAC, yes.

"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," said a press release from the brand to announce the partnership. The collection, which launches next month, will include six products. And whether you're a fan of Henson's show "Empire" or just of her flawless skin (like, how is that even real?) you're going to be super into this collection. 

One stand-out product will no doubt be the lipstick, a shade called "Strip Me Down," which the brand describes as a "deep tone beige" with a matte finish. Swoon. The collection also includes a mascara, liquid eyeliner, brush and two pressed powders for highlighting and contouring. 

Scroll down to get a first glimpse at the full collection, which will be available online starting September 6 and in select MAC stores September 8.
