I hope you had a great Christmas! Mine was a wonderful day spent with family. This year my husband and I decided to keep gifting to a minimum and focus more on being in the moment and spending time with our daughter.
A few weeks ago while I was perusing my email inbox ducking and dodging coupons for sales from some of my fav shopping places LOL (which were quite enticing) I came across one from MAC and had to open it. When I read about the Aaliyah collection at MAC Cosmetics, I knew I wanted to get my hands on some! I finally did and I wanted to share my review and try-on with you all especially since the collection is on sale now.
If your not familiar with who Aaliyah is, she was an International R&B Songstress who was taken from this world too soon after her plane crashed while she was traveling back to the states after a video shoot abroad. She was an actress and model with talent that transcended internationally and across cultures. She had several musical hits, some of my favorite songs are, “One in a Million”, “Four Page Letter”, “Are You That Somebody” and “You are Love.
She is very much missed. My heart was elated to hear that her family collaborated with MAC Cosmetics to share this collection that was inspired by her music and fashion.
I stay true to myself and my style, and I am always pushing myself to be aware of that and be original. – Aaliyah

Keep working hard and you can get anything that you want.- Aaliyah
I am glad that this collaboration happened. There are a few items in the collection that I wasn’t able to get my hands on, a few lip liners and a bronzer which did not complement my skin tone well, mainly because I couldn’t tell that I had any on :D. Apparently the collection came out earlier this year, I think it may have faired well being released in the fall/ winter because the shades don’t really give me spring/ summer tease. For the holiday’s my go to was “more than a woman” and I will be getting myself all the way together with “street thing” I have some plans for her (I’ll show ya’ll how it goes). Overall, I really enjoy the MAC Aaliyah Collection and I was elated to hear about the collaboration, I hope there are more in future.
I want people to remember me as a full on entertainer and a good person.- Aaliyah
