When it was announced that MAC Cosmetics was working on an Aaliyah collection after fans begged for it to happen, everyone was thrilled. The official announcement was made way back in August 2017. Now, the time has almost come for us to get our hands on the line.
MAC Cosmetics has been slowly given us Easter eggs over the last few months. This week, they shared not one, but three different product teasers. The first photo was of a red lipstick in a deep burgundy package with Aaliyah’s signature. Rather than revealing the shade name, MAC Cosmetics encouraged fans to guess the name of the lipstick, which was inspired by one of Aaliyah’s beauty looks.
Continuing with the teasing theme, MAC Cosmetics shared an image of an inky aubergine purple Lipglass and asked fans to name what song it was inspired by.
Last but not least, a Bronzing Powder from the Aaliyah for MAC Cosmetics was revealed featuring the same sultry packaging as the other products. As per the other products, they didn’t give the shade name, but we did get a good picture of the shimmering powder.
While MAC also kept quiet about the launch date of the collection, word on the street is that it is going to launch June 20 online and June 21 in stores, according to a tweet that ELLE reported on. Start counting down the hours. In the meantime, you can work on guessing what the products’ shade names are.
@MACcosmetics does the Aaliyah collection really come out June 20th?
