Last June, Selena fans received a gift from the Tejano gods when MAC Cosmetics announced they were working on a Selena Quintanilla makeup line. Fans went nuts, but today’s big news is too much to handle: We just got a a sneak peek of one of her lipsticks and fans are getting lit.
Selena fans everywhere have been waiting for proof the MAC + Selena is really going to happen.

^^ ALL of us IRL.
Well today, MAC gave us our first piece of evidence that La Reina’s makeup line is within reach.
A preview of Como La Flor Lipstick, one of the products from the upcoming #MACSelena collection! @SelenaQOfficial’s vivacious music and style lives on through the passion of her fans and her impact on Latin beauty and culture. #MACSelena is a makeup collaboration inspired by the devotion of all those who continue to be touched by the young legend, tenderly curated with Selena’s own sister, Suzette Quintanilla. “I wanted the colours to be about her personally, what she wore on and offstage,” says Suzette. “She has been gone for 21 years already, and for this collaboration to happen, it’s pretty much incredible. 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. It’s a great honour to have M·A·C collaborate with Selena’s name and her fans — FOR her fans.” Available October 2016 in select markets! Este es un vistazo del Lipstick Como La Flor, ¡uno de los productos de la próxima colección #MACSelena! La música vivaz y el estilo de @SelenaQOfficial vive a través de la pasión de sus fans y de su impacto en la belleza y la cultura latina. #MACSelena es una colaboración de maquillaje inspirada por la devoción de todos aquellos que siguen siendo tocados por la joven leyenda, curada con ternura por la propia hermana de Selena, Suzette Quintanilla: "Quería que los colores representaran su personalidad, lo que usaba dentro y fuera del escenario", dice Suzette. “Ya han pasado 21 años desde que ella se ha ido, y que esta colaboración sucediera, es casi increíble. Esto sólo demuestra el amor que sus verdaderos fans le tienen a pesar de que dejó de estar con nosotros; que su música sigue viva y su legado ha crecido enormemente desde que ella se fue. Es un gran honor que M·A·C colabore con el nombre de Selena y sus fans – PARA sus fans.” ¡Disponible en octubre 2016 en ciertos mercados!

On an unrelated note, maybe we should all start buying MAC Cosmetics stock before Selena’s makeup hits the shelves.
And if there is one thing Latinas know, it’s that there is ALWAYS room for more makeup, especially SELENA makeup.
I have so many lipsticks. So many. But I'll be damned if I don't absolutely need to get MAC's Selena collection. COMO LA FLOR.
