We finally know the launch date for the new M.A.C x Aaliyah beauty collection
And it's a lot closer than we thought
M.A.C Cosmetics continuously serves up some of the biggest beauty collaborations. The beauty brand has previously partnered with Charlotte Olympia, Zac Posen, Giambattista Valli, Ellie Goulding and Chris Chang, but the brand's upcoming collection is probably its most highly-anticipated yet.
Inspired by music icon Aaliyah, the new collaboration with M.A.C Cosmetics is the result of a petition started last year (it was endorsed by her brother Rashad Haughton, musician Missy Elliot and makeup friend Eric Ferrell) that garnered 26,200 signatures.
Not only does the memory of the R'n'B star (who sadly passed away in a plane crash in 2001) continue to shine through music, but fans will now be able to honour her legacy through the new collection.
We already know that there will be a selection of lipsticks (one in a particular coffee shade) and a nine-shade eyeshadow palette that was inspired by one of the artist's music videos.
When will the collection be available? The '90s-inspired #AaliyahForMac collection will be available on Maccosmetics.com on June 20, 2018. No further details have been revealed if the collection will be available here in the Middle East, but watch this space!
