MAC Cosmetics is bringing the beauty dreams of late R&B singer Aaliyah’s fans to live with a new makeup collection set to hit stores Summer 2018. MAC broke the news on Instagram today, sharing that the new launch was a result of her fans racking up more than 26,000 signatures in a two-year long petition to honor the late icon.

“Aaliyah is truly one in a million — an unstoppable icon whose groundbreaking work in R&B music and film inspires us all. Today, we join her countless fans in celebrating her with the announcement of the M·A·C Aaliyah collection. You made it happen! Stay tuned in 2018 #AaliyahforMAC,” posted the beauty giant. 

The announcement comes one day before the 16th anniversary of the singer’s tragic death in a plane crash and isn’t the first beauty launch by MAC to paid tribute a singing icon. The brand honored the late singer Selena Quintanilla with her own inspired line last year, also as a response to fans’ petitions

No word, yet, on what Aaliyah’s collection will include, but we’re sure it will be chock-full of ’90s-inspired nude and brown lippies, of which Aaliyah had revealed she was a fan.
