    a lot of people were disappointed in the eyeshadow palette, but MAC actually pulled similar shades straight from aaliyah’s makeup bag. if you look back on her looks you can find a lot of similar colors within the palette and lipsticks. it was captured beautifully, the only iffy shades are try again and brooklyn baby as they are not universal for skin tones.

    When seeing this collection in person I was EXTREMELY disappointed and underwhelmed. The colors looked like left over scraps from trials of other collabs AND they failed to have her iconic matte wine red lipstick. At the same time, Patrick Starr's line was released and looked great. In my opinion it took away from the release of Aaliyah's highly anticipated, begged for and overlooked for years and bumped back for Selena's, lackluster line. Advice? Save your coins. If you have a makeup collection started circa 2016, you already have these colors in your arsenal.

    None of this was cute, if you actually looked into it , it doesn’t really scream Aaliyah to me. It just looks like her name was just stamped on to it. She wouldn’t be satisfied (my opinion).

    This collection was a disappointment. The colors, especially the bronzer, wouldn’t have even showed up on her skin. I don’t think MAC thought about black girls when they did this & they should have. They should’ve started like “let’s match the makeup to Aaliyah’s skin tone” but they fell short.

    Aaliyah is long gone now they want to bring out this makeup collection with her name on it? In her times it was more about pretty brown lipsticks earth tones with the lip liners and of that nature ect. It doesn't sit right with me. Money obviously is the motive. It's truly unfortunate that Aaliyah is not here with us any longer so this is not of her essence nor has her seal of approval I don't like this at all! We Love you Aaliyah sweet angel🙏❤ Respect and love to her family!✨🙏❤

    The red lipstick looks... idk, messy. Like, it looks great in the tube, but on the lips it looks kind of runny. Probably need a liner just to wear it.

    An atheist or ungodly person says God is all love?
    We should learn what Gods love is.
    Do you have a house you live in?
    Does your house have rules?
    Will you allow a murderer to kill someone in your house?
    Will you allow a married man to cheat on your bed in your house?
    Will you allow anyone to sleep with anyone anywhere in your house?
    Will you allow a thief to watch your house?
    Will you trust a false witness to tell you what people did in your house?
    Will you allow a person to say blasphemies around your children in your house?
    Will you allow people to get drunk and damage everything and vomit everywhere in your house?
    Will you allow a drug addict to use drugs and leave needles and drug instruments lying around in your house?
    Will you allow people to carve idols out of your possessions and walls in your house?
    Will you allow effeminate individuals slumber with themselves around your kids in your house?
    Will you allow people to abuse other people and themselves in your house?
    Will you allow people to operate extortion from your house?
    Will you allow people to covet their stolen belongings in your house?
    Will you allow any of these types of people in your house?
    The Almighty God who is the creator of all things will not allow these kinds of behavior in His House.
    Neither will God allow sin to live in His house or be brought into it.
    His House is open to all forever who Obey His commandments.
    We can only obey Him if we love Him and not ourselves.
    If we learn to love Him then we will learn to love ourselves.
    God's House represents the Eternal Kingdom of Heaven.
    If you are left out of God's House then you are left to eternal destruction in the Lake of fire.
    God is the Law that is fulfilled through Jesus Christ.
    God will render to every man according to his deeds.
    The soul that sinneth it shall die because it has no place to live.
    In the end, those that are without a home will be like dogs[ungodly] and sorcerers[addicts] and whoremongers[prostitutes].
    And every kind that doesn't abide by any rules but acts like a rule unto themselves will die eternally.
    God teaches us His love through the Holy Scriptures.
    God teaches us to stay away from sin through the Holy Scriptures.
    God teaches us to be found in love daily till the last drawing of breath we take.
    Ephesians 1:4 According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love.
    Please seek Jesus Christ before it's too late.
