MAC Cosmetics has unveiled a limited edition makeup collection inspired by the late singer Whitney Houston.
According to Allure, the Canadian cosmetics manufacturer worked alongside Houston’s estate to ensure each product was an accurate reflection of the icon’s “beauty preferences.”
A quote from Pat Houston, executor of the Estate of Whitney E. Houston, was shared with the outlet via an exclusive press release.
Whitney was always a champion of women feeling beautiful, whether it was a major event or just for everyday wear. Our work with MAC is about creating a line that can meet all of those needs. The line will be true to the eye and lip colors that she loved to work with.
On Wednesday, MAC Cosmetics took to its Instagram account to share more details about the limited edition collection.

The Products & Packaging
The collection consists of 12 products, each packaged in metallic gold. According to Allure, most of the products include the name “Nippy” — Houston’s childhood nickname.
Houston fans can choose from a range of lipstick shades which include “Nippy’s Moody Nude,” a brownish pink-beige. “Nippy’s Rose,” a pearly coral-pink. “Nippy’s Feisty Red,” a bold brick red. And “Nippy’s Sensual Red,” a deep plum-red matte.
“Whitney loved working with colors on the lips and eyes – that iconic red lip was always a favorite of hers,” Pat Houston shared.
According to Allure, the collection also features Lipglasses in gold and copper shades. As well as the Extra Dimension Skinfinish in “Just Whitney,” a golden bronze. For the eyes, fans can pick up Whitney’s Nippy Eye-Conic Palette. It features eight shades perfect for everyday wear to ultra-glam. The collection also includes mascara, blush, and a gold clutch bag.
