Aaliyah for MAC Is Finally Happening

Get ready to rock the boat with a new collection

BEAUTY  -  AUGUST 24

MAC gave fans of superstar Tejano singer, Selena Quintanilla, exactly what they wanted with a throwback collection that caused followers to turn out en masse at malls and beauty counters across America 21 years after her untimely death. The limited-edition, lilac-colored range was so popular that the brand re-released it online two months later due to demand. Now, the cosmetic company is following suit with MAC x Aaliyah—another posthumous collaboration fans enthusiastically requested to celebrate the R&B icon who died in a plane crash after filming “Rock the Boat” in the Bahamas at only 22-years-old.

The lineup won’t be available until Summer 2018 and no details have been released yet, but MAC credits Aaliyah’s loyal base with making this collection come to life. According to the Change.org petition and the singer’s brother, Rashad Haughton, MAC was Aaliyah’s favorite makeup, with Chelsea and Cherish LipsticksEspresso and Biscuit Eyeshadows, and Chestnut Lipliner being her must-haves. “She was a risk taker, innovator, edgy, street but sweet, and R&B's princess,” writes petition founder Jennifer Risinger. Here’s hoping MAC lives up to Aaliyah’s legacy, and while we wait, we’ll get to work on recreating her crop top-worthy abs.
