Just in case you've been living under a rock and haven't heard the most recent MAC Cosmetics news, let me the first to tell you that MAC has launched a collection in honor of the one and only Aaliyah. I also need to tell you quickly that the MAC X Aaliyah Collection is available now so get it while you can.
Aaliyah is an icon who was unstoppable. Her groundbreaking work in R&B music and film continues to inspire to this day. Countless fans continue to celebrate her and the 90's glam through this inspiring collection that truly represents who Aaliyah was.
The MAC X Aaliyah Collection contains an array of products from a must-have Eye Shadow X 9 Palette and Bronzing Powder to Lipglass, Lipstick and Lip Pencil.
The Age Ain't Nothing Eye Shadow X 9 Eye Palette is my pick of the collection and it is still available as of this writing. The shades are pigmented and can glam up a day or evening look.
I love the mix of golds and plums in the eye shadow palette, and the mix of finishes included are easy to create an endless amount of looks. In the palette are mattes, frosts, veluxe pearls, and lustres.
The Bronzing Powder in Baby Girl is another pick with its soft pure golden finish. It is light on my skin, so you may want to layer it over a darker bronzer of to build it up.
The Lipsticks are on the dark side in a mix of red-based shades and they are truly representative of the 90's.
The Lipglass shades vary and I know that the darker shades sold out almost instantly. My favorite is Brooklyn Born and I apply this sheer nude over other lipstick colors to add a bit of shimmer.
