M.A.C Dropped a Sneak Peek of the M.A.C x Selena Collection

Last year makeup addicts across the web leaned hard on M·A·C cosmetics to develop a line to celebrate the life, legacy, and beauty of Selena.

After a Change.org petition that soared past it’s goal in under 24 hours and some major consideration from M·A·C,  James Gager, M.A.C senior vice-president and group creative director, released a statement in July saying, “We have heard the passion and enthusiasm from her fans and wholeheartedly agree that her legacy embodies M·A·C’s philosophy.”

So makeup junkies celebrated their victory and patiently waited. Now over six months later M·A·C has released a sneak peek at what to expect from the upcoming collaboration.

The cosmetics company posted a photo of a new lipstick from the collection to Instagram. The lipstick is a pinkish red named “Como La Flor”, inspired of course by one of Selena’s hit songs.

A preview of Como La Flor Lipstick, one of the products from the upcoming #MACSelena collection! @SelenaQOfficial’s vivacious music and style lives on through the passion of her fans and her impact on Latin beauty and culture. #MACSelena is a makeup collaboration inspired by the devotion of all those who continue to be touched by the young legend, tenderly curated with Selena’s own sister, Suzette Quintanilla. “I wanted the colours 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 honour to have M·A·C collaborate with Selena’s name and her fans — FOR her fans.” Available October 2016 in select markets!

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. Es un gran honor que M·A·C colabore con el nombre de Selena y sus fans – PARA sus fans.” ¡Disponible en octubre 2016 en ciertos mercados!

Selena’s sister Suzette Quintanilla is curating the collection with M·A·C and thought carefully about the pieces going into the collection.

“I wanted the colours to be about her personally, what she wore on and offstage,” she wrote. “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.”

There’s still more to come for this new collection, but we won’t be finding out everything any time soon, the collection is set to launch this October.
