In February 2015, a petition began on Change.org urging MAC Cosmetics to make a collection honoring and inspired by Selena Quintanilla. In July, MAC announced it had heard the public's cries and was, in fact, planning a collection around the late singer, to be released in 2016.
If you've looked at a calendar in the past four months, you've probably realized it's 2016, and today — rejoice! — we finally got our first look at the highly requested collaboration.
Our first preview of the collection is, fittingly, a red lipstick named Como La Flor. MAC worked with Selena's sister, Suzette, to create the products, which, she says in an Instagram caption, she wanted to reflect the colors the performer wore on and offstage.
The collection won't be available until October, but considering how seriously MAC is taking the requests of her fans, we're sure it'll be worth the wait.
