The collection will pay homage to the late musical star’s influential work and 1990s beauty aesthetic.

A second image unveils a single lipstick in a buttery toffee shade, similarly inspired by the name of an Aaliyah song. Both products are encased in sleek burgundy packaging with silver embossing.
