MAC Cosmetic Selena Collection

by Anna Nuttall

Mac Cosmetics has unveiled an image of the first lipstick from its highly anticipated collection inspired by the tragic Tejano star Selena Quintanilla.  For those who don’t exactly know who is she is – here a quick 411 on her:

 

Selena was an American singer, songwriter, spokesperson, actress, and fashion designer who was tragically murdered in 1995. Called the Queen of Tejano music, her contributions to music and fashion made her one of the most celebrated Mexican-American entertainers of the late 20th century. Jennifer Lopez starred in a biopic film on her, if you want to learn more about her.

Anyway Mac Cosmetic are releasing a special collection dedicated to her: “Como La Flor Lipstick”.

I wanted the colours to be about her personally, what she wore on and off stage. 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 honour to have M·A·C collaborate with Selena’s name and her fans — FOR her fans.

MAC has confirmed that the collection will be released in October, though no specific date has been given yet. So will you be buying?

The colour looks lovely but it seems very similar to a lot of shades. I find it quite hard to get excited about MAC releases these days because there isn’t must that makes them different from the regular range. Plus, this all feels a little diluted after they insulted the Mexican women of Jarez with the Rodart collection, don’t you think?

I completely agree, since her tragic death her family have sucked her dry. Just let her rest in peace. I’m not a 100% caught up with the Rodart, what happen?

My mother would’ve loved you! She totally loved polka dots. In fact, I think she had a dress just like that red & white one here. She loved red too!!! Totally cute. Thanks for sharing and bringing back a wonderful memory for me. hugs

I have to be honest and say I probably won’t be buying this only because it’s not a shade I wear but I know a lot of people will be very excited by its release. It’s a beautiful colour and her story is tragic, I’ve not seen the film with J-Lo in for years so I may have to rewatch it soon!

I agree I won’t be buying this either as – well I can’t really wear lipstick. xx
