LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

On Wednesday, October 5 dozens of people camped out outside of Dillard's at the South Plains Mall to be the first people in line to visit the MAC cosmetics store once the Selena Collection was on sale on the South Plains.  

The collection honoring the late world renowned singer Selena Quintanilla was released on Friday night in Corpus Christi, TX. That was her hometown, and where she was tragically shot and killed on  March 31, 1995.

The new makeup collection has created a lot of buzz on social media and many of the women and men waiting in the line said camping out was, "Worth it!"

The first person got in line around 6:00 Wednesday evening. The store opened with the product more than 15 hours later, at 9:30 Thursday morning. 

Most people slept out front overnight in sleeping bags and lawn chairs.

The current price of the Selena makeup line ranges from $17 to $35. It sold out within 24 hours of its online release over the weekend.

The entire collection set costs over $200.
