M.A.C is honoring the life of Tejano music icon Selena Quintanilla 21 years after her tragic death with a new multi-product, limited-edition collection, and PeopleStyle has all of the exclusive details on the line.
“I wanted the colors to be about her personally, what she wore on and offstage,” Selena’s sister, Suzette Quintanilla, tells PeopleStyle exclusively. “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 honor to have M.A.C collaborate with Selena’s name and her fans — for her fans.”
Though full details are limited, PeopleStyle can exclusively report that the collection will be filled with bright, bold lipsticks (as shown above) packaged in equally vibrant purple tubes.
Suzette shares that her sister, who was murdered by her fan-club president Yolanda Saldívar in 1995, always hoped to have a makeup collection of her own.
“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,” Suzette says. “If Selena were here she would be beyond ecstatic to have this happening. History is being made.”

“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,” M.A.C creative director James Gager previously told PeopleStyle. “We have heard the passion and enthusiasm from her fans and wholeheartedly agree that her legacy embodies M.A.C’s philosophy. We are so excited to announce a Selena-inspired M.A.C collection debuting in the latter part of 2016.”
Start dreaming of the line tonight: The special-edition Selena collection will hit M.A.C. makeup counters in October.
