After a lot of requests by her fans and a, MAC announced a Selena Quintanilla collection for late 2016!
It’s been 20 years since the latin singer’s unfortunate and tragic death. Selena’s lovely fans wanted to honour her by asking MAC for a special collection, through a petition on change.org back in February 2015. Since Selena’s signature look has made makeup history, MAC said yes!
Before MAC’s “approval”, fans even imagined a cool fan art of the products to promote the collection (and i must say that a dark blackened violet lipstic bullet would be awesome!)
Here’s what James Gager, MAC Senior Vice President/Group Creative Director said about it:
“Selena’s talent and beauty, inside and out have, have left a colourful, meaningful impact in the world, that has continued to grow over the last two decades. We have heard the passion and enthusiasm from her fans and wholeheartedly agree that her legacy embodies M·A·C’s philosophy. We are so excited to announce a Selena inspired M·A·C collection debuting in the latter part of 2016.”
And here’s what Suzette Quintanilla, the singer’s sister, said:
“I am so excited that M·A·C Cosmetics will be releasing a collection in honor of my sister Selena. 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.”
Can’t wait for this collection to come out!
I’ll keep you updated!
