San Antonians Get Their Chance To Purchase MAC's Selena Collection

Customers at the MAC Cosmetic Store at San Antonio’s North Star Mall were scrambling Thursday afternoon to buy whatever makeup they could from the newly released Selena Collection. Fans of the late Tejano star say they’ve been waiting years for her makeup line to be released. 

"She was an inspiration. It was one of my favorite movies and then I read up on her. Being Mexican, Mexican- American, she’s just an inspiration to all of us. She’s a fashion icon," says Angelicia Perez.

"I got the lipsticks and the eyeliner, because that’s all that was left. It’s just really exciting because I’ve been waiting for them for a really long time," Martin Caldera says.

"She’s my role model. She’s so timeless, very beautiful, so inspiring. I just love her," says Halie Jessee.

Selena was loved and admired for her trend-setting styles such as flare-legged body-suits and for her songs that were mostly sung in Spanish.  The Corpus Christie native was murdered in 1995.
