Fans had been waiting for a M·A·C Cosmetics collaboration with Selena for a long, long time... Petitions, people reaching out and campaigning via social media, etc. and finally in 2016, 21 years since Selena's passing (1995) it finally came to life in October (2016) online & in stores. It sold out within a day!
The fact that she's been gone for over two decades & she still has such a following and fan base speaks volumes. Her legacy will never die & continues to live on for so many people, young and old! Although there were some people unhappy with the collection, that were expecting more or something different, it didn't stop the items from selling out almost immediately... And the launch of the collection drew very large crowds. The demand for her M·A·C Cosmetics collection was so immense that they have decided to bring it back for a second time! Time to spend that Christmas money ;)
M·A·C Cosmetics released a statement:
"Due to the overwhelming passion and excitement from Selena’s fans, M·A·C Selena will be available again in the United States and Canada online on Wednesday, December 28, 2016 and in stores and online retailers on Thursday, December 29, 2016.

Selena's still has such a huge fan base & I'm so glad to see her life & talent being celebrated... She was truly a star and deserves all the recognition she's getting. Her family fully supported this collaboration & I think that made it that much more beautiful... I'd love to see M·A·C Cosmetics re-launch her limited edition line again in the future as well as expand the collection! I think they could add at least one pencil liner, probably an Eye Kohl, polish, a pair of lashes & maybe even a scent... I have a feeling there are going to be a lot of Selena fans & makeup junkies stalking the sites & all of the stores will be sold out very quickly, all over again! Best of luck to you if you're going to try to get your hands on anything.
Let me know what you want or have already!
