Late at night when all the world is sleeping, we stay up and dream of MAC's tribute collection to Selena Quintanilla. Ever since the beauty brand announced that they'd roll out a limited-edition range of products paying homage to the late icon, we've eagerly awaited any and every piece of news on the anticipated launch. Today, one of the (hopefully many) glorious red lipsticks was teased from the lineup, and it. is. everything. As a nod to her song of the same name, the Como La Flor lipstick is a bold crimson-magenta hybrid we're eager to add to our collection.
"I wanted the colors to be about her personally, what she wore on and offstage. She has been gone for 21 years already, and for this collaboration to happen, it's pretty much incredible," says her sister Suzette Quintanilla. "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 MAC collaborate with Selena's name and her fans—for her fans." MAC worked with Suzette to develop the products, which was only fitting, considering that Selena used to talk with her about creating her own line of makeup someday. Check out the lipstick below, and stay tuned for more sneak peeks at the line as the October launch date approaches.
