Selena Quintanilla fans have never let the late singer’s memory fade. The Tejana singer passed away 20 years ago, but her spirit lives on through her music and projects created in her honor. When a fan created a petition on Change.org requesting that MAC develop a makeup collection after Selena, we all crossed our fingers hoping the beauty giant would take notice. Well, we’re happy to report that they have!
"Like the legend herself, Selena Quintanilla’s fans are an inspiration to us all for their love and enthusiasm," MAC announced on its Instagram page. "It’s happening! We are excited to announce the MAC Selena Quintanilla collection, available in 2016.”
The multi-product collection would have been a dream come true for Selena, said Suzette Quintanilla, who remembers staying up late with her sister talking about how cool it would be to have a makeup line someday.
“I am so excited that MAC Cosmetics will be releasing a collection in honor of my sister Selena,” she said. “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.”
The collection won’t be available until late 2016, but we already know that the bold red lipstick that will undoubtedly be a part of this new line will be a must-have for all.
