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.

Coronel, one of regional Mexican music’s newest superstars, joins Gerardo Ortiz, his younger brother Kevin Ortiz, for the special concert series, which started on October 9.

In the acoustic sessions, part of an effort to connect the Mexican millennials with their core fans, Coronel recorded some of his best-known ballads, including “Alérgico a Tí,” while the superstar brothers sang together and recorded a full set of some of their hit singles at Fenomeno Studios in Los Angeles in front of a small audience of about 50 fans.

In order to invite those who weren’t in the room to be a part of the experience, each artist did a surprise live chat with fans using Periscope and later engaged in a candid Q&A with members of the audience that revealed aspects about their lives and careers.

Each Friday through Nov. 4, a new session will be posted on

Then, on November 4, #AsiEsMiHistoria will air nationwide as a half-hour special on Estrella TV.
