Try on and Review: MAC Aaliyah Collection

Try on and Review: MAC Aaliyah Collection

Greetings Rubies!
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.

Remebering Selena: MAC Collection try- on

Greetings Rubies…

Today is kind of reflective day. Google reminded us that it was October 17 and in 1989, Selena Quintanilla-Pérez released her first album, self titled, Selena. If you are a Selena fan like me then you know, she lives forever in our hearts. If you are not familiar with Selena, she was a Mexican- American pop artist and superstar who was very popular in the 90’s. She had hit songs, such as,  Bidi Bidi Bom Bom, Dreaming of You, and I could fall in love, to name a few.

Better late than never. The year is truly flying by isn’t it? Summer is one of my favorite seasons this year we went on a family vacation to Williamsburg, which was soo much fun. But if your budget doesn’t permit you going away you can always have a “Beauty Stay-cation” the theme of the July Sephora Play beauty Box. I know we are in August and I am super late with this post but charge it to my head and not my heart. I am determined to keep it consistent with these unboxing posts even if they are late!! 🙂
