Milk Makeup teamed up with a legendary hip-hop group to create an eight-piece Wu-Tang x Milk Makeup Lip Color Collection and a lavish $75 24K makeup mirror oinn the shape of the iconic Wu-Tang "W" logo.
The limited-edition cosmetic collection is made up of lip colors with formulas that are vegan and cruelty-free, as well as free from gluten, talc and parabens. Additionally, Milk Makeup describes that the colorful lipsticks include "enlightened ingredients" such as antioxidant-packed sacred lotus water, cherry blossom and ginseng to fight free radicals. Thematically, the collection pays tribute to the Wu Warrior and emphasizes ideas like power, armor and connecting to the natural elements—as evidenced by shade names like 'FLOW (WIND)' and 'SOURCE (EARTH.)'
Rapper and producer Teyana Taylor stars in the Wu-Tang x Milk Makeup campaign, which is built around a samurai-inspired story.
