You Can Thank The Internet for This New Makeup Collaboration
Five months ago, a Change.org petition was started asking makeup giant MAC to launch a Selena Quintanilla collaboration. In the petition, Patty Rodriguez wrote, “As a huge fan and customer of MAC Cosmetics and Latina woman, we want MAC Cosmetics to create a line that represents the community that shops MAC make-up. Selena Quintanilla is an iconic legend in our community and would she be alive, she'd be a perfect MAC girl!”
The petition received over 37,000 signatures and just a day ago, it was deemed victorious. MAC announced that we could expect a Selena Quintanilla makeup collection to hit stores in late 2016.
“Selena’s talent and beauty, inside and out have, have left a colorful, meaningful impact in the world, that has continued to grow over the last two decades,” says MAC Senior Vice President and Group Creative Director James Gager. “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.”
While we have yet to find out what the collection will entail, we do know that Quintanilla’s sister (and bad ass drummer for Los Dinos) will be involved. “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.”
Congratulations to all those who signed the petition. We can’t wait to see what MAC comes up with; it is sure to be epic. We’re hoping for a glossy red lipstick and killer brow products à la Selena to get our Bidi Bidi Bom Bom on.
