Urban Decay is definitely on the cutting edge of what’s cool in the beauty realm, so it should come as no surprise that their upcoming collection is a thing of dreams for beauty lovers. What’s in Urban Decay X Jean-Michel Basquiat? Get ready to unleash your inner artist and paint your face with bold colors.

Their latest range is truly inspiring. It’s taken the work of the late graffiti artist Jean-Michel Basquiat and turned it into makeup. It blurs the lines between art and the everyday, and you’re going to love what the collection has to offer. There’s everything from eye shadow palettes to bold eye liners here, and the best part of all is the packaging. This is where Basquiat’s artwork really comes into play. They’ve allowed his figures and loosely defined neo-expressionist markings to inspire the outside of their palettes, lipstick containers, cosmetics cases and more.

You can expect the collection to drop on Apr. 20, according to the website. The full line-up is already available to preview, prices and all, so start planning for the hit your bank account is sure to take. Because once you see what this range brings to the table, you’re going to want one of everything.

Get ready to experiment with color like the artist you are!
