Although there may not be much news about releases for October at the moment, there is one release that we have all been waiting for.


TBA | MAC x Selena: The collection that we’ve been hearing about since last summer is almost here! The Tejano singer’s legacy will continue to live on not only in music, but in the beauty industry. Selena’s sister, Suzette Quintanilla Arriaga, teamed up with MAC to help them create what seems to be a 12 piece collection: five eyeshadows, blush duo, three lipsticks, eyeliner, mascara and a powder brush. There will also be an online exclusive lip gloss available, Bidi Bidi Bom Bom. ALERT: There will be a special event in Selena’s hometown of Corpus Chrisiti. TX on Sept 30th.
