Through the years Marc Jacobs has filled our closets with beautiful handbags, shoes and clothing. But, now the fashion designer is hoping to fill our cosmetic bags with a line of makeup set to debut on August 9.

The designer recently collaborated with Sephora to create Marc Jacobs Beauty, a cosmetics collection offering 122 products. In January we reported the collaboration, but now there’s more details. The line includes four categories: Smart Complexion (foundations, concealer, and powder), Blacquer (eye pen eyeliner, lash lifter, and gel crayon), Hi-Per Color (lip products, blush, eye shadow, bronzer, and nail lacquer), and Boy Tested, Girl Approved (lip balm, brow gel, and concealer).

“We spent a lot of time developing materials and choosing the colors,” Jacobs told WWD. “We work with the technicians at the mills to achieve a certain effect, so we did the same thing with Sephora. The color palette tells a story and that story is based on a spirit. I chose different types of characters, such as an ingénue.”

The collection ranges from $24 (lip balm) to $59 (eye shadow palette) and hits Sephora stores and select Marc Jacobs stores this summer. Jump the page to take a look at the collection.
