In 2015 it was announced that Mac Cosmetics was going to release a special line in honor of Selena! The multi-product collection, an elegant tribute to the late Latin icon Selena Quintanilla, drops toward the end of 2016 thanks in no small part to a Change.org  petition started by a fan.

"Selena's talent and beauty, inside and out have left a colorful, meaningful impact in the world that has continued to grow over the last two decades," MAC Senior Vice President James Gager said in a statement. "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."

Friday, Sept 30, 2016 the line was launched in Corpus Christi, Tx! Suzette was there and they had a huge party! One week later, the line was introduced across the country and was met with immediate sellouts. Fans stood in line for hours and snapped up pieces within minutes.

In a rare move, MAC restocked the collection, which sold out a second time but a little slower which allowed the fans who missed out the first time to buy it directly without having to go through places like eBay and pay huge markups.

 

In 2020 it was announced by Suzette that they would be doing another collection together in honor of Selena! The original collection was based on items that came directly from her makeup case, colors she used. The new line is based on her style and items that are more popular today. Personally I love the packaging it's so cute!
