Yassssss! Fan girl dreams are coming true: Selena is getting her own makeup line. M.A.C made the announcement on Facebook today. “Like the legend herself, Selena Quintanilla’s fans are an inspiration to us for their love and enthusiasm. It’s happening! We are excited to announce the M•A•C Selena Quintanilla collection, available in 2016,” their post said.
Not much more information has been released, other than M.A.C. Senior Vice President James Gager recognizing the queen’s talent and beauty. The teaser image featured a bit of purple on it, so we’re hoping that’s part of the packaging. Just five months ago, a Change.org petition begged M.A.C. to make it work, and it didn’t seem very promising at the time. Flash forward to today, when Suzette Quintanilla said exactly what we needed to hear. “I am so excited that M.A.C 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.”
TL;DR: Red lips for everyone.
