MAC to Premiere Its Selena World Line in Corpus Christi Next Month

It looks like Selena fans will be seeing (shades of) red next month…

The new MAC make-up line named for the late singer, known as La Reina de la Musica Tejana, will have its premiere at the American Bank Center in the singer’s home town of Corpus Christi, TX on September 30.


The MAC Selena World premiere, presented in partnership with Dillard’s department store, will be a day-long “product experience” where fans can buy the cosmetics before they are available in stores in October, as well as see the Quintanilla family perform with an as yet-unrevealed guest performer. DJs will part of the day’s entertainment, as well as make-up demonstrations.

Anticipating the big multi-generational crowds that can be expected to flock to the arena for the event, the cosmetics company has posted detailed instructions for attending – and lining up outside for world premiere, cautioning that “once the arena reaches capacity, doors will be closed to entry” to the free-admission event. View screens will be set up outside the arena, which has a maximum capacity of 10,000.

Doors open at 10 am, and the Quintanilla Family is set to perform at 8 p.m. The Selena

make-up will be available for purchase at the event until stock sells out.

Selena’s sister Suzette Quintanilla unveiled the full make-up collection in May via Persicope. It features lipsticks named for the beloved singer’s hits like “Dreaming of You” and “Amor Prohibido.”

Selena, who was only 23 when she died, was known for her bright red lips and a personal style that has influenced thousands of female fans.

Move over Jennifer Lopez and Shakira! There’s a new Latina starlet-created fragrance on the market…

This week Selena Gomez launched her very own fragrance, which is named after her, at a special event in New York City.


The 19-year-old half-Mexican American actress and singer says she was inspired by Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen when she was creating the perfume.

“I’ve always wanted to [create my own fragrance] since Mary-Kate and Ashley had their little body sprays,” the former Wizards of Waverly Place star admitted to Us Weekly. “I loved those and was obsessed with them.”

So why did she name her debut fragrance after herself?

“It’s called my name, because I didn’t want to get all philosophical with my first one,” explained the “Hit the Lights” singer. “I wanted it to be representing me so it’s really fun, very sophisticated and also fruity. The only way I can describe it is yummy!”

Gomez—who recently released a YouTube video talking about her latest projectswent on to talk about how she let her fans help in the making of her first perfume.

“They’re the ones wearing it, so I trust them – their opinions and everything that they’ve done for me,” she said.

A day before launching her perfume, Gomez shared a photo of herself with the fragrance’s girlie purple packaging. The perfume has a long bottle and is topped off with a golden cap that’s bursting with kisses. Along with the image, she wrote, “Ahhh it’s so purrty… So excited, nervous and hyper.”

Gomez’s fragrance will be available exclusively at Macy’s for $35, $45 and $55 starting May. In August, it will be sold at Nordstrom, Ulta, Dillard’s, Bonton and SSI.
