M.A.C Announces Second Selena La Reina Makeup Collection

Surprise! M.A.C. is at it again with its next collection inspired by the Queen of Latin Pop, Selena Quintanilla. It’s called M.A.C. Selena La Reina, which translates to Selena the Queen, the perfect name for the line. Selena (she’s a one-name superstar, right?) fans are so rabid, they created an online petition for M.A.C. to honor the late singer with a collection back in 2015.

A year later, it came out and sold out quickly. It was restocked and sold out again. News of the collab had then been quiet until now.

Get kissed by a rose! Lipglass in Bidi Bidi Bom Bom, the shade from our first Selena collection that you made a best-seller is back for an encore.
Instantly swipe it on with our new virtual try-on.

“I am forever grateful to M.A.C. for allowing me to bring my creative vision to life for this collection and being able to share what I felt would celebrate my sister’s 25th anniversary,” said Suzette Quintanilla in a statement. “Working with M.A.C. on both collections has been an amazing experience.”

We don’t have all the details on Selena La Reina just yet but we do know M.A.C. is bringing back a favorite from the collection: Bidi Bidi Bom Bom Lipglass, a bubblegum pink with silver pearl lip gloss. It looks really pretty on its own or layered over your favorite bold lipstick.

M.A.C.The brand promises us more details on the release closer to launch, which is April 2020. It might seem far away but February is almost over already.

The original M.A.C. x Selena collection included black eyeliner, mascara, bronzer, a brush, five eyeshadow shades, three lipsticks and the above lipgloss. This time around, we’re hoping for a matte red lipstick, brow products, smoky-eye ready shadow and maybe even rosy blush to really get the Selena look.

For Quintanilla and her family, the collection is a chance to connect with the younger generation that sadly never got to experience Selena in person. “We’re in a whole new generation, and they’ve embraced her and they talk about her not just as an artist, but as a role model and what she represents to who we are as Latinos. She was an amazing artist, a great role model, a sweet person, and a real person,” says Quintanilla. “People, especially Latinos, can look at her and think ‘she’s me.'”
