From start to finish, the MAC x Selena collection has been a rollercoaster story. You probably know the drill by now, judging by the huge amounts of press this collection has collected, but if you're just now emerging from Rock City, fans fought for this collection and won. It sold out immediately. People were ready to pony up about $3000 on eBay to get in on the action. MAC brought it back (sorry, anyone who spent $3000). And now, we're left to wonder: When is the last date to shop MAC x Selena? Get it while you can, because it's not far off.
According to the brand's Instagram, fans only have until Jan. 31 to shop the Selena collection at MAC stores and counters in the U.S. and Canada. One week, my friends, to grab the purple-packaged lipsticks, shadows, brushes and blush before they're all gone for good. There's no word on how much stock is left and if counters will keep selling it until it's gone (or strictly stick to the Jan. 31 end date) but there's a definite sense of finality to M.A.C.'s Instagram announcement. I'd suggest you don't leave things to chance.
What's worth picking up? All of it. But failing that, here's a run-down of the Selena goods to know.
