When MAC Cosmetics announced that they would be launching a Selena Makeup Collection, inspired by the late Latin music icon, Selena Quintanilla, I was stoked! I could only imagine what the colours would be like (the brightest red matte lipstick ever!)…and the names (Bidi Bidi Bom Bom or Como La Flor). It got me thinking about the influence of our culture on the beauty industry and how our culture is becoming part of (and transforming) the mainstream, including the beauty industry (yes, we do buy–and wear–more lipstick!). So, in honour of Hispanic Heritage Month, here is a nod to some amazing Latin-inspired beauty products.
