Selena's Amazing Fan Base Made Her New MAC Collection A Real Thing


Yesterday, 90s kids everywhere collectively lost their minds after cosmetics giant MAC announced its newest collection will be inspired by none other than the late, great Selena.

Details about the collection, set for release next year, are scarce, but I do know it was Selena's devoted fans who made the inspired collection a reality.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Latina singer's death, and in February, fans began a petition that called for the makeup company to create a cosmetics collection in her honor.

The petition collected over 37,000 signatures and sparked #SELENAQUINTANILLAforMAC.

For MAC, that was more than enough encouragement.

Senior Vice President James Gager confirmed the news in a statement yesterday. He said,

Naturally, after MAC's surprise announcement, Twitter flooded with posts from excited fans.



Yes x2.

Also, yes.



These will be happy tears, doe.

To be fair, I'm excited, too. This collection is sure to be one for the books.

Stay tuned for updates!
