After an online petition garnered more than 37,000 signatures, MAC Cosmetics announced that a collection inspired by Tejano music icon Selena Quintanilla is in the works.
MAC’s Creative Director, James Gager, told People:
“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. We have heard the passion and enthusiasm from her fans and wholeheartedly agree that her legacy embodies MAC’s philosophy.”
Though details are scarce at the moment, we do know the limited-edition collection will be released in second half of 2016.
Selena’s sister, Suzette Quintanilla, also commented on the collection:
“I am so excited that MAC Cosmetics will be releasing a collection in honor of my sister Selena. 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. If Selena were here she would be beyond ecstatic to have this happening. History is being made.”
