Mac cosmetics has teamed up with Suzette again to create a line in honor of Selena! The first one released in late 2016 and replenished in early 2017 due to high demand, was such a success that Suzette knew she wanted to work with Mac again to create another line. The first line was based on the colors in Selena's own makeup case. The new release is based on items that people use more often now such as highlighter. It's still keeping in the spirit of Selena's style but will be a different collection. Visit the official MAC website for more details!
