M.A.C. Cosmetics has recently been collaborating with amazing artists such as Nicki Minaj, Gabriel Zamora, Laura Lee and others. Many of their lipstick collaborations have been major hits and it looks like this one will be, as well.
M.A.C. is finally teaming up with singer Aaliyah and the collection was inspired by her stunning looks. According to Fashion Magazine, the collection will be released summer of 2018. Even though we have almost a full year to wait, we can get an idea of what the collection may look like by peeking at Aaliyah’s beautiful looks.

It looks like the R&B singer’s fans have been asking for this collaboration for some time now, and their wishes are finally being granted. In fact, the fans have created a petition for a M.A.C. x Aaliyah collection, and there was over 26,000 signatures.
“We want M.A.C to be the first brand to reintroduce Aaliyah’s legacy to the world in a format that it has never been given before,” reads the petition. “Aaliyah’s brother Rashad Haughton says that Aaliyah was a big fan of M.A.C. He also goes on to say,’ that he approves of the idea for a limited edition collection by M.A.C for her.'”
The M.A.C. petition became more serious after artist Missy Elliott endorsed it.
“This campaign is officially supported by: Aaliyah’s Brother Rashad Haughton, Aaliyah LLC, Aaliyah’s official twitter: @aaliyahhaughton, Missy Elliott, Aaliyah’s glam squad: Makeup Artist: Eric Ferrell, Hairstylist Tre Major, and Fashion Stylist Derek Lee.”
