Interesting fact: Selena Quintanilla-Perez’s posthumous original collaboration with MAC ranks as one of the top-selling collections in cosmetics history. I’ll let that sink in for a minute.

And even though everything is limited edition design-wise, the positive is that all are available as part of the permanent lineup.
