90’s babies, prepare your hearts because the Aaliyah for MAC Cosmetics collection is officially on its way this summer!
After a years-long fan petition campaign and speculation, MAC Cosmetics is finally releasing a collection of makeup inspired by the late singer and actress Aaliyah.
As per the reports, Aaliyah for Mac collection was initially announced in August 2017 and now has an official launch date.
MAC Cosmetics confirmed that Aaliyah for MAC will be online from the 20th of June 2018.
“Aaliyah is truly one in a million — an unstoppable icon whose groundbreaking work in R&B music and film inspires us all,” MAC Cosmetics said in an August 24. 2017 Instagram post. “Today we join her countless fans in celebrating her with the announcement of the M·A·C Aaliyah collection. You made it happen!

The process for fans to get a MAC Collection inspired by the late singer has been years in the making. In 2015, a Change.org petition was created to advocate for a limited edition collection of eyeshadow, lipstick, lipliner, lip glosses, highlighter, contour eyebrow pencils and lashes from the brand.
More than 26,000 signatures later and with support of Aaliyah’s brother, Rashad Haughton, the official Twitter page of the singer, frequent collaborator Missy Elliot and others, the petition made change.
The specific items in the collection are not yet known, but a sneak peek of a medium brown lipstick was posted on Aaliyah’s official Twitter page Monday.
