In the video, Jeffree addressed the makeup developing process and his intention.

“It takes months and months, sometimes a year plus, to make a product. There were some people saying ‘Jeffree, it’s a little weird timing, there’s a lot going on in the world’…for me, this is art, and I never come from a negative place, you guys,” he explained.

“My own father who passed away, and my two dogs who passed away last year were cremated, and it is a tradition in my family. Nothing ever comes from a bad place. If you were thinking that, absolutely not…in no way was this created to be offensive ever,” he went on to say.

He also discussed scheduling, and how he already pushed back the palette by over a month.

“This year is full, which you’ll see later this year…I couldn’t put Cremated anywhere else, and I never want to give my customers a bad experience…I want to end by saying I’m never discredit anyone’s feelings and interpret things how they do. Just know that I only come from a good place.”

He also talked about his brand’s current status.

“I had a huge launch planned for April 24. And no, it was not marijuana-related. It was a whole different vibe,” he explained.

“It was just not the right timing…for a really big collection, it just doesn’t feel right. And, side note, if I wanted to, I couldn’t even put it out with the manufacturing side.”

“A lot of my factories are in America, and some are in Italy…some of the stuff for the next collection has not even been made yet because of the delays,” he revealed.

“Hopefully middle of May I can put it out, end of May, I’m not really sure what is going to happen…all of our launches are delayed.”

“In this collection you definitely get a piece of Selena with you,” Patrick said.

Selena’s home state was given a nod with eyeshadow color named “It’s a Texas Thing,” and Patrick reflected on the the time he ate at her favorite restaurant in Corpus with her sister, Suzette.

He also did her iconic red lip using the “Siempre Selena” color.

The La Reina collection includes four lipsticks, three lip glasses, two pencils, three retro matte liquid lip colors, one extra dimension skin finish, one eyeshadow palette with eight shadows, and a makeup bag that resembles the iconic Selena bra.
