It seems like MAC never wants to stop! The MAC Selena Quintanilla fall 2016 makeup collection is a new bright and bold line-up announced by the brand, which pays homage to Selena Quintanilla, an American singer, songwriter, actress and fashion designer that left a rich heritage to the world even though she passed away at a very young age. Set to become internationally available at MAC stores, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s and Macy’s in the beginning of October 2016, the collection is composed of mono eyeshadows, lipsticks, mascara, eyeliner and face products.
Suzette Quintanilla, Selena’s sister was involved in the entire creation process of the MAC Selena Quintanilla fall 2016 collection, and she chose colors that would perfectly embody Selena’s personality and signature beauty looks. “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,” she said.
MAC Cosmetics knows how to please Selena’s fans and keep her music and art vivid in their memory. As the brand’s Senior Vice President James Gager noted: “Selena’s talent and beauty, inside and out have, have left a colourful, 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 M·A·C’s philosophy.”
