Could there be a MAC Limited Edition Aaliyah Collection on the horizon? Maybe so!
There is a possibility that the late popular R&B singer, Aaliyah, could be getting her own line with MAC Cosmetics thanks to a petition circulating the web.
As a result of a petition started by a fan, it was announced by the cosmetic company last month that a collection would be released in 2016 honoring late Selena Quintanilla and Aaliyah fans are now fighting for the same.
As of now, the Aaliyah for MAC petition that can be found on change.org currently has over 1,500 signatures from supporters with numbers consistently growing. Word is spreading quickly as the hashtag #AaliyahforMAC is being used on multiple social media platforms.
Fan and petition creator, Jennifer Risinger, shares in the petition that she wants MAC to release a limited edition collection that will “reintroduce Aaliyah’s legacy to the world in a format that it has never been given before.”
Aaliyah’s brother, Rashad Haughton, adds that Aaliyah was a huge fan of MAC and fully supports the idea of a limited collection being released in her honor. He also stated that he would work with her licensing team to make it happen!
The idea has been also been backed by Missy Elliot, Monie Love, and Aaliyah’s stylists.
Aaliyah was one that could pull off a fresh face or full on smoky eye and red lip. There are already numerous Aaliyah inspired make up tutorials across the web and on YouTube of fans trying to recreate her look. I can only imagine the success of a line specifically manufactured for her. What a great way to pay homage!
The Selena for MAC campaign gained 37,757 signatures before MAC released the news. This does not necessarily mean that the same would be required for an Aaliyah collection. No word from MAC as of now.
What do you think of the proposal? What hues would you like to see in the collection?
