MAC Cosmetics Is Launching A Second Selena Collection
It’s been four years since MAC launched its capsule collection inspired by the late Tejano icon, Selena. Now, all of these years later, the bigtime cosmetics company is set to release a second collection, this time in April.
The Quintanilla family and MAC announced on Tuesday their second launch for the Selena La Reina Collection.
Translated as Selena the Queen, MAC’s updated collection is setting out to revisit the singer’s legacy.
Speaking to Allure magazine about the launch, Selena’s sister Suzette Quintanilla explained that the new collection is meant to the side of the singer that didn’t sport the signature red lipstick as she did on stage. “Whenever she was offstage, she had her hair pulled into a low bun and very light on the lip, just being Selena as a person. The red lipstick was definitely performance mode,” Quintanilla explained.
The new collection is set to include makeup from the original line including the beloved Bidi Bidi Bom Bom Lipglass.
For Suzette Quintanilla and the rest of her family, the updated collection is a chance to help younger Selena fans connect with the singer. “We’re in a whole new generation, and they’ve embraced her and they talk about her not just as an artist, but as a role model and what she represents to who we are as Latinos. She was an amazing artist, a great role model, a sweet person, and a real person,” Quintanilla told Allure. “People, especially Latinos, can look at her and think ‘she’s me.'”
