Brace yourselves, Selena Quintanilla fans. The wait is almost over. And if you're too young to know who this Selena is, Google her because we're not talking about Selena Gomez.

Last year, fans started a Change.org petition urging M·A·C to release a limited edition makeup line in honor of one of music’s most loved Latinas. More than 37,000 signatures later, MAC listened and made the Selena fans’ #MACSelena dream a reality.

Today, the cosmetics brand officially sent out a press release saying that the M·A·C x Selena collection, curated by her sister Suzette Quintanilla, is set to launch this upcoming October. In a sneak peek of the collection, M·A·C teased fans with the first product from the line: “Como la Flor,” a lipstick shade named after one of the singer’s hottest single.

“I wanted the colors to be about her personally, what she wore on and offstage,” Suzette comments. “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.”

Stay tuned for more releases from this collection.
