Why it's different.

Selena passed away 21 years ago, but she continues to be honored by her fans — and now, for the first time, by the beauty industry. 

How it happened. 

The beauty brand first announced the collaboration inspired by the queen of Tejano music in July 2015 as a direct result of one loyal fan's Change.org petition

Now, nine months and 37,772 signatures later, it's finally been confirmed that #MACSELENA, which includes the berry lip shade "Como La Flor," will be released in October 2016. 

"I wanted the colors to be about her personally, what she wore on and offstage," Suzette Quintanilla, Selena's sister who helped curate the makeup collection, said in a press release. "It just shows the love her fan base has even though she's gone; that her music still lives on and her legacy has grown tremendously since she's passed."

"[This collection] just shows the love her fan base has even though she's gone; that her music still lives on and her legacy has grown tremendously since she's passed." 

Fans are pumped.

Here's just a smattering of the hundreds of tweets sharing their excitement.

It's been 21 years, but the public's appetite for Selena clearly remains.

Correction: April 12, 2016 
A previous version of this story misstated when MAC announced its Selena-inspired makeup line. That announcement was made nine months ago. The article also previously stated that we have to wait seven more months for the Selena MAC collection to be released. The line debuts in October, six months from now.
