After more than 37,000 people signed a petition to push MAC Cosmetics to create a Selena Quintanilla makeup line, the company revealed Tuesday the first lipstick shade of their Selena collection: Como La Flor, (Like The Flower) - the name is recognizable to Selena's fans as one of her beloved songs.

Radio talk show host Patty Rodriguez started the petition and hashtag campaign #SelenaQuintanillaForMAC for all of the fans who had watched any of the numerous Selena makeup tutorials on YouTube.

MAC teamed up with the late singer's sister, Suzette Quintanilla, to create the color palettes and ensure Selena's legacy lives on.

“I wanted the colours to be about her personally, what she wore on and offstage,” Suzette said in a MAC Cosmetics Facebook post. “She has been gone for 21 years already, and for this collaboration to happen, it’s pretty much incredible... It’s a great honour to have M·A·C collaborate with Selena’s name and her fans — FOR her fans.”

The full collection will be available in all MAC stores in October 2016.
