Aaliyah x MAC

When I worked at MAC a million years ago, I used to love the collaborations. They were always a sell out and also it meant a new playlist for the shop music system!
 The latest MAC collaboration is with one of the all time greatest female R&B stars Aaliyah. She is someone I certainly grew up listening to and even now, 17 years after her untimely death, her music is still as fresh as it ever was.
Her collection for MAC has been championed by her Brother, Rashad and he has dedicated the collection to all of her worldwide fans.

So what's in the launch?

It's nice to see a 9 pan eyeshadow palette instead of the standard 4. Nobody ever gets to the bottom of the larger quads anyway!
 The palette is a mix of shimmer and matte powders in both warm and cool tones. I like the inclusion of good eye contour shades to make blending out a smokey eye very easy. Pops of silver and gold shimmers can be added to the higher points and create a fresh dewy finish rather than a all-out glitter.
For the face is the Baby Girl Bronzing powder which is softly golden with a hint of golden shimmers. As a bronzer it would only really be suitable for a fair skin oddly however it would add a nice radiance or highlight to a medium-deeper skin tone.
The lip line up had to include some mirror shine glosses, as that's what we remember about Aaliyah. For this collection there are two lipsticks in a soft muted beige and a Burgundy with a slight cool toned edge.

The glosses compliment the lipstick tones with a rich plum and a milk gold lipglass.

This collection is available now online and from selected stores.

  1. I like all these cosmetic for my shop. But packaging should be from the Customboxeszone more attractive for the customers.
