M∙A∙C Selena

mac-selena-makeup-collection-products-pictures

The vivacity of late Mexican-American singer, Selena Quintanilla, lives on through the passion of her fans and her impact on Latin culture and beauty. The so-called «Mexican Madonna» got killed in 1995 by her former manager at the age of 23. Selena’s murder had a widespread impact. Major television networks interrupted their regular programming to break the news.

Inspired by the devotion of all those still touched by the iconic Latin legend. M·A·C Selena is a makeup collaboration tenderly curated with Selena’s sister. Selena not only taught us to move, she moved us—let’s keep that rhythm alive!

rs_1024x776-160414110826-selena-mac-como-la-flor

The line includes at least one deep red lipstick that reminds us of the iconic singer’s signature look. The name of the shade is «Como La Flor,» which is also the title of a single from Selena’s 1992 album «Entre a Mi Mundo».

In the US, the new make-up launch has caused some controversy as critical voices accused the cosmetics company of misusing cultural symbols and designs. Fact is that the collection is inspired by the lush feeling of festival season where some Native American details, such as headdresses and beaded clothing belong to the iconic looks. Relax, everyone! Join the tribe and feel the vibe!

The collection is in stores now. In Switzerland at MAC counters and stores and as well as online.
