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.

Micro trends make the world go around. Just kidding, but they are really fun and add a certain je ne sais quoi to one's wardrobe. As the seasons change, there's a short-lived fashion cycle of certain clothing and accessory trends that have a sudden boom in popularity which last at least 1-2 years. Thanks to the invention of fast fashion, in most cases, these seasonal items are loved by the masses just to be thrown to the back of our closets within the next few months.

When it comes to growing and strengthening natural hair, a dynamic duo of products and a healthy routine are necessary. It's unrealistic to think you can do one without the other and expect strong, healthy, and vivacious curls and coils. If you're wondering why your hair is damaged or in a stagnant phase, you may need to take a look at your routine and make sure your hair is getting the care it truly needs.

Something that I try to mention, as much as possible, especially when it comes to married and long-term couples is, if you want to go the distance, it's not just the "big things" that you've got to stay up on; it's the little things too. Something as simple as you being a morning person while your partner is a night owl can affect everything from quality of sleep to quality time to your sex life. That's why, when it comes to couples who have different sleep patterns who still want to have a fulfilling sexual dynamic, I'm all about encouraging them to do what is at the foundation for all successful relationships — compromise. Sometimes that means that an alarm clock needs to be set or someone needs to initiate some, umm, stuff (more on that in a bit) in order to get the juices flowing (pun intended and not intended).
