Exciting news, beauty junkies! #MACSelena is coming your way.

MAC Cosmetics announced yesterday that it will be launching a collection inspired by Latin icon, Selena Quintanilla, in 2016:


This collection is a pretty big deal for Selena fans as back in February, a Change.org petition was started, urging the cosmetics giant to release a limited-edition makeup collection inspired by late singer.

"Selena's talent and beauty, inside and out, have left a colourful, meaningful impact in the world, that has continued to grow over the last two decades," MAC's creative director, James Gager, said in a statement. "We have heard the passion and enthusiasm from her fans and wholeheartedly agree that her legacy embodies MAC's philosophy. We are so excited to announce a Selena-inspired MAC collection debuting in the latter part of 2016."

The collection will be curated by Selena's sister, Suzette Quintanilla, who says the songstress had always wanted to launch her own makeup line.

"I am so excited that M.A.C Cosmetics will be releasing a collection in honor of my sister Selena," she said. "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."

We can't wait!
