CORPUS CHRISTI (AP) — Thousands of fans stood in line for hours to get their hands on a new cosmetics line dedicated to slain Tejano star Selena.
MAC Cosmetics launched its Selena collection on Friday in Corpus Christi, the singer’s hometown.
The makeup collection — including blush, lipsticks, eye shadows, eyeliner and mascara — was prompted in part by an online petition started more than a year ago that 40,000 fans signed, asking MAC Cosmetics to commemorate Selena Quintanilla-Perez.
Friday’s product launch was the largest in MAC history.
The cosmetics collection will be available online starting Saturday.
“The Queen of Tejano Music” was 23-years-old when she was fatally shot by her fan club’s president, Yolanda Saldívar, in 1995, in Corpus Christi. Saldívar was convicted in the killing and sentenced to life in prison.
