For fans, it’s been years in the making. After it was announced last summer that MAC Cosmetics would create a limited edition line for Tejano music icon Selena Quintanilla, many have wondered what the first look would be.

On Tuesday morning (April 12), the singer’s official Instagram page posted the first product from the #MACSelena collection–a perfect red lipstick titled, “Como La Flor.”

The multi-product line came to be thanks to a change.org petition created by Patty Rodriguez, life-long fan and a senior producer of On Air With Ryan Seacrest. With over 30,000 signatures, the company announced the line would become a reality.

While details are still slim, the collection will include a line of bright lip colors in purple tubes. Speaking with PeopleStyle, the singer’s sister Suzette Quintanilla says the collection will embody the legacy and power the fans would have wanted for Selena.

“I wanted the colors to be about her personally, what she wore on and offstage,” Quintanilla, tells PeopleStyle. “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.”

A teaser video was also posted to MAC’s Facebook page.
