Now, fans of the show can embrace the rhythm and indulge their fabulous side with these showstopping shades: Hustle Hard, a fierce fuchsia shimmer, Power of the Empire, a gold record glitter, and War of the Roses, a seductive ruby red shimmer.

No stranger to successful celebrity and TV collaborations (i.e. HBO’s “Girls” & “True Blood”), Deborah captured the dazzling style and opulent beauty exhibited throughout the show, led by the infamous woman in charge, Cookie Lyon, with the creation of these lavish new shades. As a trained jazz singer with a lifelong passion for music, Deborah was captivated by the melody and lyrics found within each iconic song, crediting the prowess of EMPIRE Music Producer and songwriter Timbaland. This collaboration carries special meaning for Deborah, a longtime member of the entertainment business with three albums to her own name, and perfectly ties in with the brand’s heritage of using music as one of its inspirational sources. She adds, “As The New York Times said, ‘EMPIRE has prestige, great music and gifted actors…it is Dynasty in the age of hip hop.’ What’s not to love?! It combines all my favorite passions – gorgeous beauty, killer style, and out of this world music. I am a loyal viewer and can’t wait to tune in weekly.”
