Brooke Candy Releases MAC Makeup Collection, New Videoby Erica Russell | PopCrush
Edgy rapper Brooke Candy is not exactly known for her subtlety. The outspoken artist and adamant supporter of the LGBT community and female empowerment is, however, well recognized for being bold, over-the-top, and wholly unapologetic, whether that’s with her music, fashion style, or ample sex appeal.
This month, Brooke released a brand new single and music video, the bombastic and hyper-surreal club-rap banger “Rubber Band Stacks.” But this isn’t the only Brooke Candy release that has us hyped, as this week the avant garde artist also dropped her debut capsule collection with MAC Cosmetics… and all before the girl even has a debut full-length album out!
Of course, the collaboration wasn’t a total surprise. Back in January, Brooke teased that this was on the way to Refinery29, saying, “I’m doing two collections with MAC. One is going to coincide with the release of something big in 2015, and it will consist of three to four products; and a second collection will coincide with something big in 2016, and it will consist of 12 to 14 products. I’m so excited about this, because I’ll be following in the footsteps of women like Rihanna, Debbie Harry, and Daphne Guinness.”
We’re guessing that the “release of something big in 2015″ is referring to her latest video, but we can’t help but be just as—if not a bit more—stoked for her makeup collection, which consists of three edgy makeup products fit for a dark, cyber-rap queen.
First, there’s a fire-engine, bright cherry red lipstick called “Mind Control.” There’s also a deep, gothy plum lipstick called “Which Witch.” And finally, no self-respecting Brooke Candy fan’s look would be complete without a razor-sharp cat-eye, achievable by using her “Boot Black” intense black liquid eye-liner.
It’s a perfectly fitting collection of products for an artist who has a single called “Opulence.”
