MAC announces release date of Aaliyah collection
MANILA, Philippines – MAC Cosmetics on Tuesday, April 3 (Manila time), finally announced a release date for the long-awaited Aaliyah collection: June 20 for online stores and June 21 for stores in North America.
In a series of posts on its official Instagram account, the cosmetics giant teased both Aaliyah and make-up fans about the collection due to hit stores (and likely, make a dent in our wallets) come June.
Aaliyah who? If, for some reason, you lived under a rock in the 90s and early 2000s, here are the basics: Aaliyah was an American artist and actress who shot to fame in those years with hits like "Try Again" and "Rock the Boat." She also sang a version of "Journey to the Past" for the movie Anastasia.
She died in a plane crash in 2001 after filming the music video for "Rock the Boat".
Why the collection now? It all started with an online petition that called on MAC Cosmetics to release a makeup collection inspired by the late singer and actress. The petition was supported by Aaliyah's family and friends in the music industry.
The cosmetics giant finally announced in August 2017 that it would release the Aaliyah collection in summer 2018.
