MAC will launch a Selena Quintanilla-inspired makeup collection this fall
It's been 21 years since Selena Quintanilla Perez was gunned down by her former fan club president, but her star shines brighter than ever.
And now, her fans have one more way to remember her.
MAC is introducing a Selena-inspired makeup collection that will launch this fall, her sister Suzette Quintanilla announced on Twitter. Though details are scarce, the collection — curated by Suzette — features the singer's signature colors, including "Como La Flor," an exact match of the red lipstick she was known for. The packaging will be royal purple emblazoned with the singer's signature.
"I wanted the colors to be about her personally, what she wore on and off stage," Suzette said in a statement, according to People.
The collection has been rumored for years, but never materialized until now. "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," Suzette continued. "It’s a great honor to have MAC collaborate with Selena’s name and her fans — for her fans."
Selena was a fashion and beauty mogul in the making, with several successful boutiques open when she was killed in 1995. The MAC collection continues her dream, Suzette 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," Suzette says. "If Selena were here she would be beyond ecstatic to have this happening. History is being made."
