Fans of the late singer have been petitioning the makeup giant for years to honour the singer with her own collection and they have finally gotten their wish granted.
The cosmetics giant revealed that her own makeup line with the brand is in the works and it would be launching in the summer of 2018.
“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,” the brand wrote, along with a teaser of the upcoming collection’s logo.
The brand which is probably reacting to competition from trendy new makeup brands (Hello Kylie Jenner *😊*) has been working hard to stay ahead of the completion lately with their back to back collaborations.
They released their 2nd collaboration with star of Empire, Taraji P Henson last week, announced an another upcoming line with female rapper, Nicki Minaj now they have finally agreed to honour the late Aaliyah with her own line…….competition is sure tight.
This is not the first time they are releasing a line with a dead celeb though. In the past, they created a line honouring late Latin singer, Selena Quintanilla last year.
