In celebration of the film's release, MAC Cosmetics and Marvel Studios teamed up to create a limited-edition makeup collection inspired by the film.
The collection was curated and inspired by the looks and colors of the characters in the film and, according to MAC, was created to wear well on melanated skin. "The shades are significant to the various tribes that were represented in the first film and were then extrapolated into a futuristic version of what the looks and colors would be for the sequel," Joel Harlow, makeup department head for Black Panther and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, told BuzzFeed.
We were lucky enough to get our hands on most of the pieces from the collection — except for the eyeshadow palette, which was sold out. So we gathered four BuzzFeeders with different skin tones and makeup-wearing preferences and asked them for their honest opinions. Here's our testing panel.

And Nora and Morgan S.:
We asked everyone to separately create a look for themselves that they loved — using products from the collection. Here are their looks and full reviews of the products!
Fabiana created a daytime look using the liquid liner in metallic purple (Wakanda Proud), extra dimension highlighter in warm gold (Royal Challenge), and lipglass in translucent gold (Feelin' It).
