MAC Cosmetics X Selena Preview

First comes Caitlin, then comes Selena.

MAC Cosmetics heard the cry of hundreds of Selena and makeup fans alike and decided to create a collection inspired by the Queen of Tejano music. Fans everywhere joined in on the petition last year pleading with Mac to “create a line that represents the community that shops at MAC makeup.”

And then it happened…

We remember how excited we were when MAC initially informed us about the collection:

 



  And today, it’s finally here. MAC took to Instagram earlier to give us a sneak peak of the new collection with a fusion of a bright red and pink shade called Como la Flor (named after one of Selena’s hit songs, of course). Selena’s sister, Suzette Quintanilla was also a great asset and help with creating the new line. “I wanted the colors to be about her personally, what she wore on and offstage,” says Suzette. “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.”

Esto sólo demuestra el amor que sus verdaderos fans le tienen a pesar de que dejó de estar con nosotros; que su música sigue viva y su legado ha crecido enormemente desde que ella se fue.

Don’t grab your purses just yet. #MACSelena won’t be available in stores until October 2016, but it’s well worth the wait, don’t you think?

We can’t wait to see the full collection!
