Aaliyah fans have come together to create a petition to have the late legendary R&B singer honored with a collection by MAC Cosmetics.
The beauty brand has partnered with Caitlyn Jenner, for a recent example, and Aaliyah’s loyal fanbase is speaking up demanding the same.
The petition was started by Jennifer Risinger, who explained, “Me and a couple of friends tweeted [Aaliyah’s] brother, Rashad Haughton, and asked if he would be interested in a MAC collection honoring Aaliyah.”
“To our surprise, since the family’s so private, he responded that she loved MAC cosmetics and that he approved and that he would have his licensing team look into it,” Risinger continued. “From then on, we put a petition together and set up social media accounts.”
“I would want them to bring back a couple of her favorite colors that she mentioned in some articles,” she said. “Chelsea lipstick, I believe that’s a discontinued shade. She wore Cherish lipstick, so that could be a re-promote in the collection, as well as Chestnut lip liner.”
Other possible names for the lipstick shades in the limited edition collection could be “Try Again,” “Rock the Boat” and “One in a Million," all playing off of her legacy.
MAC has yet to respond to the petition, but the 12,000 and growing signatures are a sure sign the collection would do well.
