Freak out now. #AaliyahForMAC is coming to a MAC counter near you in Summer 2018
The beauty enthusiasts of the internet may have already seen the Aaliyah MAC collection coming a mile away. Fans of Baby Girl, better known as Aaliyah have been pleading with MAC Cosmetics to finally have the lost too soon R&B songtress honored with her own makeup collection.
Aaliyah is most known for hit R&B songs such “One In A Million” and “Rock The Boat” and appearing along side musical icons such as R. Kelly, Missy Elliott, and Timberland. The late singer, unfortunately, lost her life in the Summer of 2001 along with 8 others in a plane crash in the Bahama shortly after filming the video for Rock The Boat off of her self-titled album “Aaliyah”. Lost tender age of 22, Aaliyah’s legacy and touching spirit has lived on for 16 years and much more to come.
An online petition, which I actually took the liberty to sign, has been circulating since late 2015/early 2016 urging fans to sign in hopes of bringing the Aaliyah collection to MAC. With currently over 26,000 signatures, MAC has finally teamed up with Aaliyah’s brother Rashad and her estate to make fans dream a reality.

While some may feel this collection should have happened long before Selena and the second installment of MAC x Nicki Minaj, we’re glad the brand took the time to pick it up and hopefully will deliver a collection that is worthwhile and fitting for a Princess like Aaliyah.
I think I can speak for most people when I say we are looking forward to this collection serving us 90’s vibes galore and early 2000’s chic.
Let’s pay a little homage to the looks that Aaliyah has served over her years with us.
