It was recently announced that MAC will be releasing a new makeup line inspired by the late superstar Selena Quintanilla. While the line itself will not be out for another year, James Gager credits fans:

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. We have heard the passion and enthusiasm from her fans and wholeheartedly agree that her legacy embodies MAC’s philosophy


A fan by the name of Patty Rodriguez created this change.org petition stating:

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!

I’m definitely adding this as something to get my step-sister next year (who is on her 3rd viewing of Selena today because I guess Netflix and Hulu is too boring or something).
