Selena Quintanilla fans will be able to get their hands on the late singer's limited-edition makeup products by M.A.C. in October. The cosmetics company took to social media this morning to announce the release date and also give a first look of the "Como La Flor" lipstick, which will be part of the multi-product collection.

Selena Quintanilla Makeup Collection Coming to MAC Cosmetics in 2016

"Your passion for Selena lives on through #MACSelena. The multi-product collection arrives October 2016."

"I wanted the colors to be about her personality, what she wore on and offstage," wrote Selena's sister, Suzette Quintanilla, who helped curate the makeup line along with M.A.C. "She has been gone for 21 years already, and for this collaboration to happen, it's pretty much incredible. 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. It's a great honor to have M.A.C. collaborate with Selena's name and her fans -- FOR her fans."

Last July, M.A.C. confirmed the creation of the Tejano music icon-inspired line after Patty Rodriguez, a huge Selena fan and senior producer for On Air With Ryan Seacrest, started a petition online asking M.A.C. for a line inspired by her idol.

"This is history in the making," Rodriguez told Billboard exclusively. "To have a brand like M.A.C. Cosmetics honor Selena Quintanilla, a Latina-American, speaks volumes of what whe meant not just our community but to pop culture in this country. This will only inspire young girls to dream even bigger."
