I can’t remember a time in the last 20 years that MAC launched a collection that everyone knew would sell out in minutes. The Selena Collection was created as a result of fans petitioning MAC for it. MAC collabed with her family to recreate what was in her makeup bag and they came up with a sweet little collection that paid tribute to her beautifully. Since Selena was murdered in the mid 90’s the tribute collection is a nod to 90’s inspired makeup trends.
As a makeup junkie and collector I just wanted something from the collection. I knew I didn’t need the whole collection and would rather leave that for the die hard Selena fans. So I picked up two lipsticks. One for myself and one for my roomie. Since I was only allowed to buy one of each I opted for Amor Prohibido for myself since my roomie was dying for Dreaming of you.
It’s one of the only times I can think of that a product has felt to special to use. I can’t even bring myself to swatch it. What about you? Did you pick up anything from the collection? I can’t believe how fast it sold out and how many people camped out in mall parking lots to get it.
