Beauty Report: First Look At The Mac x Aaliyah Collection
Last year Mac Cosmetics announced their fan driven Aaliyah collection was coming in 2018, and now we are finally getting a sneak peek. Aaliyah was known for having a style all her own, even when it came to her makeup. From rich chestnuts to soft nudes, she was always changing up her look and having fun with products.
Yesterday Mac gave a first look at two of the items from this highly anticipated collection. One, a cinnamon nude lipstick and the other a nine pan eyeshadow palette filled with glittering shimmers, sultry neutrals, and a pop of deep purple. No word yet on the exact number of pieces that will be available, but the packaging captures the very essence of Aaliyah. The lipstick component comes in a rich burgundy shade embossed with Aaliyah’s very own signature in a shiny silver font. The entire collection is said to be inspired by the late singer’s song catalog, as well as her unforgettable music videos. These two products alone prove how much effort Mac put into making this line a true tribute to Aaliyah and her legacy as an artist and beauty icon. The entire collection will be available online on June 20th and in stores on June 21st. In the meantime, we can wait for even more glimpses into this long awaited tribute to one of the music industry’s greatest talents and most unfortunate losses.
