7 MAC x Selena Alternatives If You Missed Out On The Sold Out Collection
Still crying over missing out on the MAC x Selena collection? Luckily, the limited-edition collection will be restocked soon, but chances are, it will sell out again, and quick. If you can't get your hands on this Selena-inspired, iconic red during the relaunch, here's seven alternatives for MAC x Selena Dreaming Of You.
The MAC x Selena collection includes a Lipglass, five eyeshadows, a blush and bronzer compact, a makeup brush, liquid liner, a mascara, and three lipsticks named after her most famous singles. Selena Quintanilla came to fame in the late '80s and her first Billboard chart topper, "Dreaming of You," was released in 1995. It's her most memorable song (still beloved!) and red lipstick was her go-to style on stage. So it makes perfect sense to honor her with a sexy, sultry berry red shade.
A cool-toned, rich red looks great on a wide range of skin tones, and all you have to do is search #MACSelena on Insta to see how beautiful this shade looks on everyone. Whether you're a makeup enthusiast, forever a Selena fan, or both, you'll want to rock this color this season.
If you can't shop it, here's my favorite MAC x Selena Dreaming Of You dupes.
