Combining four lipsticks, two glosses, two blushes, a radiant skin finish, an eight-shadow palette and false lashes, the MAC Whitney Houston collection pays homage to the late pop legend through bold beauty inspired by her own looks. 

MAC, known for being the creators of some of the best lipsticks, best blushes and best eyeshadow palettes on the make-up market, have centered the line around bold golds, pretty pinks and ravishing reds and even taken inspiration from Whitney's nickname, Nippy.

And don't forget a powerful lash! The range has a set of 80 Romantic Lash falsies to add that extra layer of Whitney glam.

Speaking on how the MAC Whitney Houston collaboration has encapsulated the late icon's vibrance and beauty through the power of make-up, Pat Houston, who is the Executor of the Estate of Whitney E. Houston, said, "Whitney was always a champion of women feeling beautiful, whether it was a major event or just for everyday wear."
