Aaliyah for MAC
Who says you can’t make a difference via social media? After a very lengthy campaign, fans of Aaliyah have finally convinced MAC to release a collection honoring the late R n’ B diva. Thursday evening the cosmetics giant announced plans to release an Aaliyah-inspired collection in 2018, some 17 years after the singer’s death.
Singer-actress Keke Palmer went the extra mile for Halloween this year, choosing to not only dress as the late singer, Aaliyah, but to also remake a portion of her Try Again video.
Keke shared pics of her transformation via Instagram, writing “@rennywasquez slayed this makeup and @CynthiaGlam slayed this hair. And a special thanks to #ScreamQueens wardrobe department (@LizzyBott) for remaking and slaying this epic Try Again costume. #HappyHalloween.”
Aaliyah Fragrance by Xyrena, a Tribute
Are you guys interested in an Aaliyah fragrance? Well, the late singer’s family hopes so, as they have teamed up with fragrance designer Xyrena to release a new designer scent in tribute to the beloved performer.
Simply titled Aaliyah, the fragrance is already available via Xyrena’s official website, and can be purchased for $64. “I grew up listening to Aaliyah’s music,” said Xyrena CEO Killian Wells. “As a huge fan, this is a very personal release for me and my company. We set out to create a fragrance to be cherished by Aaliyah’s fans and also introduce her to a new generation.”
Could a Aaliyah Mac Collection be on the Horizon?
In the wake of news that Mac Cosmetics would be releasing a collection inspired by slain Tejano singer Selena Quintanilla-Pérez, fans have attempted to mobilize to get a similar collection released in honor of late R&B singer Aaliyah.
Using the hashtag #AaliyahForMac, fans have taken to sites like Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, in hopes of getting the attention of either Mac, or their parent company Estée Lauder.
