Fans of the performer Aaliyah have revealed that they are unhappy with what they have seen of the collection MAC Cosmetics is to release in her honour.
Their thoughts and feelings below…
Many took to Twitter to share that they felt the company had struggled to capture the star’s essence after spotting the products advertised here.
I don’t think it makes sense for MAC to do an Aaliyah collaboration. Aaliyah was a clear gloss and lashes girl, so what exactly are MAC going to put out ?

Ima keep it funky. This Aaliyah mac collection looks thrown together. I don’t think they knew what to do bc she wasn’t known for makeup

Mac was super lazy with this. Aaliyah’s makeup was always bold. This ain’t it. https://t.co/u5K0t0PW0Z

That palette doesn’t look like Aaliyah at all. Not even a little bit. It looks like “here nigga damn” because of all those petitions. https://t.co/KeHbwQR60W

Seriously. These are some of her most famous looks and I don’t see that reflected in that MAC palette. pic.twitter.com/WiHmVMK6ix

The collection will impact the world on June 21st and soar into stores seventeen years after the singer’s untimely passing.
Fortunately, there are many who are in favour of the collaboration.
Aaliyah was. She absolutely loved MAC cosmetics, it was in one of her last interviews. That’s why a lot of her fans pushed for this collab line to happen in remembrance of her. I agree with you on the Tommy collab. That would’ve been dope tbh. https://t.co/myCIiKJBsz
