OMG! We're squealing. The wait is almost over!
Selena Quintanilla's highly-anticipated MAC collection is hitting shelves this year, and we just got a first look at one of the gorgeous lipsticks from her line. "A preview of Como La Flor lipstick, one of the products from the upcoming #MACSelena collection," Selena's official Instagram page posted, along with an image of the item.
“I wanted the colors to be about her personally, what she wore on and offstage," Suzette Quintanilla said in a statement. "She has been gone for 21 years already, and for this collaboration to happen, it’s pretty much incredible. It just shows the love her fan base has even though she’s gone; that her music still lives on and her legacy has grown tremendously since she’s passed. It’s a great honor to have M·A·C collaborate with Selena’s name and her fans — FOR her fans.”
MAC excited fans with news of the collaboration last summer. #MACSelena is the result of a successful Change.org petition that was put forth by Patty Rodriguez, a fan and the senior producer of On Air With Ryan Seacrest. "As a huge fan and customer of MAC Cosmetics and Latina woman, we want MAC Cosmetics to create a line that represents the community that shops MAC make-up," Rodriguez wrote. "Selena Quintanilla is an iconic legend in our community and would she be alive, she'd be a perfect MAC girl!"
Rodriguez's efforts and the nearly 40,000 signatures helped us Selena fans see a dream realized.
“I am so excited that M·A·C Cosmetics will be releasing a collection in honor of my sister Selena," Selena's sister said following the announcement in 2015. "Helping to create this collection brings me back to all those late night conversations on our tour bus when she spoke of having her own makeup line one day. If Selena were here she would be beyond ecstatic to have this happening. History is being made.”
#MACSelena is slated to launch in October 2016! Take a peak at what's coming with the collection below:
