So after confirming its plans to launch a collaboration in honour of 90s RnB princess, Aaliyah, MAC have confirmed an actual release date for its #AaliyahforMAC collection.
It’ll land in stores on June 20 and will be online June 21. These are the North America launch dates but I assume they’ll be the same for the UK.
It’s hard to believe the collection is the result of a die-hard fan. Jennifer Risinger, who started a petition three years ago, rounded up thousands of other fans and eventually caught the attention of Aaliyah’s brother, Rashad Haughton, her friend rapper Missy Elliot, and her makeup artist Eric Ferrell.
Aaliyah’s favoUrite M.A.C products were alledgedly the lipsticks in Chelsea (brick red) and Cherish (pink-beige), lipliner in Chestnut (chocolate brown), and eyeshadow in Espresso (dark brown).
MAC released sneak peeks of a couple of the products we can expect to see and I can’t wait to see what the rest of the collection is like.
