Take a Peek at MAC’s New Aaliyah Makeup Collection

MAC Cosmetics is honoring the late R&B singer Aaliyah with a makeup line this summer, and now we finally get a look at some products will be included in the collection.


The company announced the upcoming collection more than nine months ago after fans demanded a tribute to the “Rock the Boat” singer. Until now, however, there have been little details about the Aaliyah collection revealed by the cosmetics company. They took to Instagram yesterday (May 28), to tease a few items from the collaboration including a fiery red lipstick, a plum hue of their signature lipglass and a bronzing powder.


The singer who passed away in a plane crash on August 25, 2001, was known for her smoky eyes and nude-glossed lip. It looks like MAC is deriving the inspiration for its collection from video looks and popular records from the singer. “We’ll keep going back& forth… until you guess the name of this #AaliyahforMac lipstick!” The company captioned its lipstick, a nod to her 1994 single “Back and Forth” featuring R. Kelly.
