There was big beauty news this week, and that’s because a MAC x Whitney Houston Collaboration is happening. MAC have created a couple of posthumous collections to date, including the iconic Selena collaboration from last year, and also their very popular Aaliyah collection.
These collaborations are created with the Estate of each star, and this year saw a collaboration between Urban Decay and The Prince Estate, which was extremely popular. I know many believe posthumous collections are disrespectful, but they can also be seen as a tribute to the artists too.
The MAC x Whitney Houston Collaboration was first revealed by People, and the collaboration is said to be a long-term, multi-faceted partnership with the Whitney Houston Estate.
“Whitney was always a champion of women feeling beautiful whether it was a major event or just for everyday wear, our work with M.A.C. is about creating a line that can meet all of those needs. The line will be true to her colors that she loved to work with,” Pat shares, adding that Whitney “loved working with colors on the lips and eyes, that iconic red lip was always a favorite of hers.” – Pat Houston
Whitney was known for iconic makeup looks throughout the decades, and is likely to include a red lip colour, which was said to be a favourite of hers. We haven’t seen any product reveals yet, but it looks like it’s going to be more than just one collection, which is exciting, and I’ll be sure to update this post once further details are shared.
