Mac Selena: Swatches

Hey, dears! Now,  I’m sure you knew I had to come back & make a post about Queen Selena’s makeup collection by Mac Cosmetics. I’ve been a Selena fan since I was a toddler. My grandma would play her music all the time when I was growing up, even after she died. So this collection meant a huge deal to me, especially being a Latina woman. This collection is more than just makeup, especially to the Latin community. It’s almost like a symbol that us Latin people can be great, too – especially now when Latin people (especially Mexicans) have been spoken negatively about in a political light. So with that said, let’s see some lipstick swatches.

Also, I know a lot of people were curious to know if Dreaming of You was exactly like Mac Diva. I personally had a feeling it would be similar but not an exact match. I told myself if it was an exact match, I’d be PISSED because I would like to know that these shades were genuinely inspired by Selena’s makeup & that Mac didn’t just slap a different label on a shade that already exists. So here’s the comparison…

Top to Bottom: Diva, Dreaming of You

Fortunately, Diva is a bit darker & warmer than Dreaming of You.

Here’s a closeup of the Techno Cumbia/Ven Comigo compact…

 I didn’t swatch this one though because the bronzer is the Mac Blunt & I’m sure a lot of people are familiar with it. The blush is a nice light, dusty pink shade.

If you’re interested in a little bit of the background of the collection see below…

Selena Honored by MAC Cosmetics

Hey darlings!

It is finally happening! This is real life not just another rumor on the rumor mill. MAC Cosmetics is answering the prayers of all Selena fans out there and will be releasing a collection in honor of her legacy. ❤

I honestly never thought this day would come. Earlier this year, I saw so many petitioning for a Selena MAC Collection via Instagram and Twitter but I never thought it would actually happen! MAC’s Senior VP states, “Selena’s talent and beauty, inside and out have, have left a colorful, meaningful impact in the world, that has continued to grow over the last two decades.” Selena’s sister, Suzette, even posted her feelings about the new collection stating, “Helping to create this collection brings me back to all those late night conversations on our tour bus when she spoke of having her own makeup line one day. If Selena were here she would be beyond ecstatic to have this happening. History is being made.”

It’s clear that Selena’s legacy is still going strong 20 years after her death. I’m definitely snagging all the makeup I can from that collection. Too bad I have to wait until next year though 😦 But, I know the lipstick shade they come out with will be BOMB. MAC can take all my money when this collection comes out because ANYTHING FOR SELENASSSSSSSS! ❤
