Just Dropped | MAC X Selena
I'm not going to lie, this collection got me really emotional - it took me back to being a kid and I was overwhelmed with nostalgia..
I grew up listening to Selena's music and I remember repeatedly watching J-LO play her in the film of her life. It was a big part of me and seeing this collection land on my desk really made me realise that. I've known about this launch since the beginning of the year but I wasn't aware it would be launching in the UK as I'd read somewhere that it would only be available in selected countries. What's really special about this collection is that MAC worked closely with Selena's sister who was really able to bring Selena's spirit alive with the launch of this line.
When I picture Selena, I can see her trademark red lips and this lipstick 'Como La Flor' is a true Selena shade - it's bold, it's iconic and if she were alive it's the kind of colour you could see her wearing. Her eyes were always softly smoked and I distinctly remember her wearing liner on the outer corners of her eyes. These matte eyeshadows 'Missing my baby' (Pinkish Nude) and 'No me queda mas' (Soft brown) are the perfect shades to add definition to the eyes.
The blush duo 'Techno Cumbia' is ideal to achieve softly, sculpted cheekbones - I love it when MAC launch these 2-in-1 I find them so useful, especially when travelling and the tone of this one is so versatile.
The Lipglass from this collection 'Bidi Bidi Bom Bom' is an online exclusive, it's a pretty, sparkly pink lipgloss which is gorgeous alone or applied over lipstick, you know I like to mix things up and this one's a good one for that.
I feel like this collection means a lot and I'm thrilled to have received it.
You know I couldn't finish this post without including my favourite Selena song, oh god watching it makes me cry!
Lots of Love and EMOTION!
