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.

It was actually pretty close to this time last year when I penned the piece "How To Get Through The Holidays If You Don't Observe Them". Unlike some of the other articles that I write for the site, I pulled that one from very personal experience. Being that my personality is very wired to "be good" on something once I know its origin, holidays are something that I tend to take a pass on; this includes Thanksgiving (some insightful reads on its origin are found here, here and here). Still, this doesn't mean I'm not aware of the fact that many people use this time of year to reflect on their blessings and to say "thanks" for all the good that has come their way. Since I like to write on relationships a lot, I thought to myself, "Why not come up with ways for people to show gratitude to their significant other?"

I didn't want to say that I was having bad luck. That's not something I'd ever want to speak into existence over my life. But I will say something wasn't right. I had a few coins stacked in my purse from a one-time project as well as from an ongoing one. Then I received emails from not one but two publications within days apart asking me if I'd like to contribute a few articles every week. Opportunities and money were flowing in. If you follow the law of attraction, you'd say I was vibrating on a high frequency.

Tinashe has learned a lot about her mental health while growing up in the entertainment industry. The singer/songwriter began dancing at four years old and had her first movie role at five years old.

From there, she went on to be in a girl group The Stunners and act in TV shows like Two and a Half Men. Now as an independent artist focusing solely on her music, the "All Hands on Deck" singer opened up about the struggles she faced in the industry.

My favorite time of the year is the start of the official boot season which begins during the transitional period between summer and fall. What's most exciting about the sudden drop in temperatures is stepping back into those sleek pair of boots for the first time in months. Whether zipping up oldies but goodies or investing in a new fall 2021 boot trend, this year is all about the calf boot. Specifically, this is the best option when easing your summer clothes into the appropriate fall looks.
