CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas – Some fans of slain Tejano star Selena can’t wait to get their hands on her new makeup products that sold out on the first day of online sales.
MAC Cosmetics launched its Selena collection on Friday in Corpus Christi, Texas, the singer’s hometown. The collection went on sale Saturday on the company’s website.
Frustrated fans soon took to Twitter to complain about being greeted by error messages when they tried to complete their purchases. MAC announced Saturday night that they were sold out.
“Due to the passion and overwhelming excitement from Selena’s fans, currently #MACSelena is sold out on Maccosmetics.com. We are working to restock the collection. In the meantime, #MACSelena will be available at Macys.com, Dillards.com, Nordstrom.com, Bloomingdales.com, Belk.com, Saks.com and TheBay.com on Monday, October 3. Additionally, #MACSelena will be available wherever M-A-C is sold in the US and in select stores in Canada beginning on Thursday, October 6. #MACSelena will launch internationally later this month. Thank you for your passion and your patience. Please stay tuned for more details,” a statement on MAC’s website read.
MAC says the collection was available through the websites of several major retailers beginning Monday. However, all of those retailers sold out immediately.
It will make its debut in stores Thursday.
Selena Quintanilla-Perez was fatally shot by her fan club’s president, Yolanda Sald var, in 1995. Saldivar is serving a life sentence.
