Selena Quintanilla Has A Makeup Line With M.A.C.

"Anything for Selenas!"

Selena Quintanilla Has A Makeup Line With M.A.C.

Selena Quintanilla is the queen of tex-mex. Seriously, ask anyone. Selena was/ is beloved by (mostly) everyone in the latino community, and around the globe as well.

It’s been 21 years since the singers death but she is still remembered by her fans, old and new. While Selena was alive she made a name for herself. Music wasn’t the only thing she was known for. She started a clothing line and even opened a boutique/ salon in Corpus Christie, Texas.

It’s without a doubt that if Selena was still alive today and still rocking it on stage, she would be making millions of dollars. A makeup line sure would have been in the works. I am just surprised that it took the family this long to arrange it.

However, it got me thinking about how much money the family is making in her name. I understand that fans want to commemorate her in any way possible and I was beyond thankful when the movie Selena came out (and not because of this reason -_-) but I feel like they are exploting her name. Not the Quintanilla name, no, the name Selena.

Of course, I am not saying that money is the reason or only reason why the family is still keeping the name alive in people’s heart. I am sure that Selena would want for her fans to have a part of her even after she’s gone. Selena was a girly girl at heart which is why this make-up line was a given.

For all I know, this could’ve been M.A.C’s idea and the Quintanilla clan just went along with it, thinking of her and what she’d want for her fans.

Believe me when I tell you that no one was more excited when M.A.C. announced that they were working on a Selena line, than me. I could just picture myself wearing Selena’s signature red lipstick or lipliner (which I could achieve with just about any red lipstick- dub or expensive- out in the market) and full lashes.

It’s a sweet idea what M.A.C. is doing, honoring the late singer, and I love the fact that they have chosen the color purple as the color for the main packaging, since it was Selena’s favorite color.

Say what you want, but this is MY OPINION. I am sure that once this line comes out it will do fantastic on the market. Just as I am sure that I will go into a M.A.C store or kiosk and check it out (hell, I might even buy something—I’ll keep you posted).

Needless to say, I will check out what the line has to offer for us, her fans. I will inspect packaging, quality and everything else that comes with it.

Afterall, a true fan will do “anything for Selenas!”

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends. Many were skeptical that people with diabetes could complete such a physically challenging trip without putting themselves in danger due to their disease.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.


As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.

September Is Suicide Awareness Month, But Mental H​ealth Is An Everyday Discussion

Mental illnesses deserve our attention 365 days a year.


September is Suicide Awareness Month, providing an opportunity to raise awareness, further educate yourself, and remember the reality that mental illnesses present.
