Aaliyah's legacy continues to live on 17 years after her death. 


Ahh!

Fans of the late R&B songstress Aaliyah will be pleased as punch to know that their hard work has paid off.

MAC Cosmetics is officially releasing products inspired by the musical icon; they will reportedly follow in the footsteps of deceased Tejano music star, Selena. 

The brand confirmed the launch of the collection via Twitter on Sunday, April 1, after a fan asked whether the collab was coming.

Yup!
Aaliyah super-fans everywhere – YOU made it happen! Inspired by your loyalty and love, the 90s-glam #AaliyahForMAC collection launches on maccosmetics.com on June 20th and in-stores in North America on June 21st!

“Yes, the wait is almost over! #AaliyahforMAC arrives June 20 online and June 21 in stores. Watch MAC’s social pages and sign up for updates: https://t.co/sqz9bNWbNh”. 

On Monday, MAC teased two products. One is a coffee shade lipstick…which is reportedly inspired by her 2001 single, "We Need A Resolution."

“Here's a sneak peek at the MAC Aaliyah collection, coming to maccosmetics.com on June 20th and in-stores in North America on June 21st! Aaliyah’s legacy continues to inspire fans – and now this shade! Guess which song inspired this colour!?

Oh and the second item is a nine-piece eyeshadow palette that features warm hues, including gold, brown and gorgeous pearlescent shades. Yes, we are swooning.

Which music video do you think inspired these shades? Teaser number ✌🏽 for the M•A•C Aaliyah collection, coming soon! The lasting impact of @aaliyah_haughton_official carries on with an eye palette in sultry hues. #AaliyahForMAC

The concept for the collaboration started after people began petitioning for it on Change.org. This was later endorsed by the singer's brother, Rashad Haughton, her close friend, Missy Elliot, as well as former makeup artist Eric Ferrell.

As you are undoubtedly well-aware, Aaliyah passed away on August 25th, 2001 after she finished recording the music video for her single, "Rock The Boat." The music icon was onboard a flight (along with members of her record company) when the plane crashed shortly after takeoff. 

The news of this cosmetic development was first announced last year; “Today we join Aaliyah's countless fans in celebrating her with the announcement of the MAC Aaliyah collection. #AaliyahforMAC”.


“Aaliyah is truly one in a million — an unstoppable icon whose groundbreaking work in R&B music and film inspires us all. Today we join her countless fans in celebrating her with the announcement of the M·A·C Aaliyah collection. You made it happen! Stay tuned in 2018. #AaliyahforMAC @aaliyah_haughton_official”, MAC had posted on Instagram.
