Fans wait overnight to purchase MAC's Selena makeup line
EL PASO, Texas - Fans waiting to get their hands on MAC Cosmetic's highly anticipated Selena collection were disappointed after the collection sold out online almost instantly.
But there's still a chance for MAC fans.
Thursday morning at 10 a.m., MAC Cosmetics will open its first El Paso location at Cielo Vista Mall.
The limited-edition MAC x Selena collection will be available at the store while supplies last. The 14-product collection features three lipsticks, five eyeshadows, a blush and bronzer compact, liquid liner, and a mascara all inspired by the Queen of Tejano's style.
The 1,250 square-foot store will be located in the lower level, JCPenney area of the mall next to Banana Republic.
"I love Selena," she said. "My husband said"
'Take water, take a chair,' but I said I just needed this pen," she said as she pulled a blue Bic out of her pocket. "For protection."
"(Selena) was everything for Hispanic little girls," said Mercedes Gonzalez, who was second in line after Alonso. The Cicero resident arrived a half hour after Alonso, at 9 p.m. Wednesday, and planned to spend $600 on buying two of the entire collection — one for herself, the other for her sister-in-law.
"Selena was a part of the family. We grew up listening to her music," added the third person in line, Crystal Espinoza. "I feel a deep connection with her, as though I knew her when she was alive." Quintanilla-Perez was killed by the president of her fan club in 1995.
