Love stories that no matter how many times I watch them the endings will always leave me crying 😭
SEE MY INSTAGRAM POST 10 PHOTOS OF THE SELENA 25th Anniversary in celebration of this famous singers tragic death 25 years ago. Mac collaboration with her sister created this beaituful Collection in remembrance of her legacy and SOLD OUT. Heres the whole story: MAC Announces Second Selena Makeup Collection
Introducing, Selena La Reina which means Queen in spanish.
Much like the story of Selena herself, the tale of the original Selena MAC Collection is an inspirational one. In February 2015, Selena fans created an online petition and lobbied MAC for a collection in honor of the late singer timed to the 20th anniversary of her death. MAC heeded the call, and when the collection finally came out in 2016, it sold out immediately. The range was only restocked once before it vanished from our lives — but like Selena, never from our hearts — forever. Until now.
“The night of our  launch, I said to the MAC team, ‘Hey, we’re going to work together again,’” Suzette Quintanilla, the singer’s sister, tells me. “I can guarantee you they looked at me like I was a crazy person, because the line wasn’t going to be in stores until the following day. But I knew it was going to be extremely successful.”
Five years later, her prediction is coming true. The Quintanilla family and MAC announce today the second iteration of their collaboration, the Selena La Reina Collection. Translated as Selena the Queen, the collection is a chance to revisit the singer’s legacy and her famous love of beauty.
Selena was especially known for her signature red lipstick, but Quintanilla tells me that the singer rarely wore such bold makeup day-to-day. “Whenever she was offstage, she had her hair pulled into a low bun and very light on the lip, just being Selena as a person. The red lipstick was definitely performance mode.”
“I’ve held this in for two years so I have a lot to say,” says Quintanilla. “This collection is a celebration of her legacy, it’s for her fans.” Quintanilla has a few weeks longer to wait — for now, the brand is keeping mum on the products themselves. What we can share is one upcoming lip gloss, which fans of the first Selena collection may recognize.
The new range will include one old favor
