Here's Every Product That Will Be In The Aaliyah x MAC Collection

Beauty & Fashion

One of the first CDs that I bought with my own money was Age Ain't Nothing But a Number by Aaliyah. It was hella throwback, released the year after I was born, but I was captivated by her laid-back demeanor and hella non-confirmative style on the album cover.


Thanks to MAC, fans of all ages will also be able to experience the magic that Aaliyah drizzled all over the 90's via this summer's beauty launch. MAC recently confirmed rumors that they will release a summer collection reminiscent of the late singer's most iconic looks.

MAC said in an Instagram post:

"Aaliyah super-fans everywhere – YOU made it happen! Inspired by your loyalty and love, the 90s-glam #AaliyahForMAC collection is coming soon! Aaliyah lives on in a makeup collection influenced by her groundbreaking work in music and film."

The announcement is a response to the #AaliyahForMAC movement (similar to the outcry that sparked the Selena x MAC collaboration) started by a fan three years ago. The petition on Change.Org garnered the backing of more than 26,000 supporters, including Missy Elliot and Aaliyah's brother, Rashad Haughton. MAC explained:

"Together in partnership with the family, we are celebrating Aaliyah's life and talent alongside her countless admirers. #AaliyahforMAC is a tribute to the late singer brought about by the passion of her fans."

The new collection will be hella retro, featuring a nine-pan eyeshadow palette starring shades like metallic gold and satin plum, as well as a nude 90's reminiscent lip shade.

The launch will be accompanied by a short film, composed of fan-submitted photos and videos that will celebrate her legacy.

Aaliyah was symbolic of millennial culture before millennial culture was even a thing. Despite her untimely death, Aaliyah's influence will live on to impact a multitude of generations by way of her timeless music and iconic style.

The collection is set to release online June 20th and will be in stores June 21st.

Ever since Chlöe and her sister Halle Bailey have been creating their own identities outside of their group Chloe x Halle, Chlöe has faced Beyoncé comparisons. Modeling her performance style after Beyoncé is no surprise since both Chlöe and Halle are signed to the "Formation" artist's label Parkwood Entertainment and so there's no doubt Queen Bey has influenced them in more ways than one.

While it's important that we're always proactive about taking care of our immune system, if there is any time of year when we tend to think about it more than usual, it's right when the fall season arrives. Cold weather has something to do with it. Cold and flu cases spiking have something to do with it. Wanting to make sure that we stay well enough so that we can enjoy some holiday time off probably plays a role in it too. And while things like rest, exercise and not smoking all help to keep our immune system healthy and strong, it's important to know how much diet plays a part in all of this too.

Y'all. Y'ALL. A couple of weeks ago, I decided to get a humidifier (which is basically an electronic device that helps to put humidity into the air). The main reason why is because I read an article that said that COVID thrives in low humidity. I'll get into that in a second, though. Anyway, what I thought was going to be a quick trip up the street ended up being a day-long endeavor because I had to go to four different stores and all of them had inventory issues. Most said it was because of the labor shortage that's been happening all over the country.
