Last night (November 20), Taraji P. Henson brought white hot fashion and an epic ponytail to the 2016 American Music Awards. With years of red carpet experience under her very stylish belt, this latest slay is no surprise.

However, what we really need to talk about is her lipstick because it’s perfection. As we all know, plums and purples are a go-to this time of year.

The deep shade is synonymous with winter and as the temperatures cool, most of us are looking for a hue that’ll warm up our day-to-day makeup. If you’re obsessed with Henson’s latest beauty feat, it only costs $12 to replicate.

Her go-to makeup artist, Ashunta Sheriff, named Lip Bar’s “Crown Me” as the vibrant hue worn by Taraji.

The black-owned beauty brand, founded by Detroit native Melissa Butler, includes a wide range of Black girl approved shades and as you can see, the liquid matte lipstick has amazing pigment payoff.

As expected, this particular shade is sold out on Lip Bar’s official website, but fret not; you can shop five more equally fab shades, including “Bawse Lady” (above) at Target for just $12.

Whether you gift it for the holidays and treat yourself just because, this is one deal you cannot pass up!
