Inspired by the late Latino artist and “Queen of Tejano Music,” Selena Quintanilla, MAC have just announced a brand new upcoming collection for 2016, titled #MACSelena.
The singer, who was tragically killed in 1995, will have her legacy honoured by the brand’s upcoming and highly anticipated range, which is sure to sell out fast – the star having a dedicated legion of fans who called for the brand to put the line together, by an online petition filed here and signed by over 37,000 people.
Announcing the collection, MAC said;
“Selena’s talent and beauty, inside and out, have left a colourful, meaningful impact in the world, that has continued to grow over the last two decades.
We have heard the passion and enthusiasm from her fans and wholeheartedly agree that her legacy embodies MAC.’s philosophy. We are so excited to announce a Selena inspired MAC collection debuting in the latter part of 2016.”
Trumping the excitement of the internet following the news, Selena’s sister Suzette revealed;
“I am so excited that MAC Cosmetics will be releasing a collection in honor of my sister Selena. 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.”
Team SPICE agree and will be looking out for more news on the range, for which no imagery or further information has been released. In the meantime, share your thoughts on the #MACSelena collection here below in the comments box, or online @SPICETVAFRICA.
