Last year, MAC Cosmetics released the wildly successful Selena Quintanilla collection, which flew off the shelves immediately. Now, the brand gives ode to another R&B icon with its latest Aaliyah collection. After two years and over 26,000 petitions, the people are finally getting what they want. Fans even created an Instagram account that has amassed 18,000 followers, which are all devoted to reimagining Aaliyah as a creative collaborator for MAC.
Aaliyah is truly one in a million — an unstoppable icon whose groundbreaking work in R&B music and film inspires us all. Today we join her countless fans in celebrating her with the announcement of the M·A·C Aaliyah collection. You made it happen! Stay tuned in 2018. #AaliyahforMAC @aaliyah_haughton_official
There are no further details yet on what we can expect from the collection. But for now, MAC leaves us this statement, “Aaliyah is truly one in a million—an unstoppable icon whose groundbreaking work in R&B music and film inspires us all,” the brand wrote in their Instagram announcement. “Today we join her countless fans in celebrating her with the announcement of the MAC Aaliyah collection. You made it happen! Stay tuned in 2018”. The beauty company couldn’t have picked a better time to make the grand announcement as today marks the anniversary of Aaliyah’s passing (August 25). With all this excitement built up, we absolutely can’t wait to see what’s in store for this much-anticipated range.
