Red lips have always been a timeless beauty statement. Whether you were inspired by Marilyn Monroe, Madonna or Gwen Stefani, red lips will always be a classic beauty staple. Growing up, Selena was my beauty muse. I loved her bold, red lips and dark, wavy hair. I know I wasn't the only little girl who wanted to sing, dance and look like Selena. Although I was only 2 years old when she passed away, her music, dancing and style greatly inspired me. I’m pretty sure that after I learned to walk, my parents taught me how to Cumbia to Selena’s music! 

Selena has influenced so many with her bold fashion and makeup that she was honored with her own makeup line in October 2016. M.A.C Cosmetics formulated 5 eyeshadows, 3 lipsticks, 1 lip-gloss, a blush duo, mascara, liquid eyeliner and makeup brush for the Tejano Queen. The packaging is in a bright and vivid purple with Selena’s iconic signature on every product. Although I could not get every product, I was lucky enough get my hands on the three lipsticks.

1. Como La Flor

A dirty cherry red in a cream finish. It's based off of Selena's signature red lip and looks amazing on darker skin tones. (see featured image).

2. Dreaming of You

This is a deep wine in a matte finish. A great fall/winter color that looks best with neutral makeup.

3. Amor Prohibido 

This is a pinky mid-tone brown with a glaze finish. This is more of a nude/neutral shade that seems to disappear on darker skin. 

All three lipsticks are priced at $18 from M.A.C Cosmetics. Although this collection has been restocked since its debut in October, the M.A.C. site is sold out and should restock the products soon. For products similar to the Selena M.A.C. collection, check out the Dupe List - simply type in a product name and it will list all similar products across the board. We love it!
