Urban Decay just announced on Instagram that it will soon drop a limited edition collection (date TBA) in collaboration with the estate of Jean-Michel Basquiat.

It appears that the collection will include three lipsticks, three eyeliners, two eyeshadow palettes and a four-pan blush palette. Each item will include images by the late great New York artist, known for his iconic collages and graffiti-style art. The makeup brand notes the collection will be "seriously" limited. Translation: it will sell out fast.

Though it may seem surprising than an artist famous for his underground vibe would become a virtual ambassador for a major beauty line, this isn't the first time Basquiat's estate has attached the artist's name to a brand. Past collaborations have included Supreme, Uniqlo, and even alice + olivia.

As Urban Decay noted on one of its teaser Instagram posts, "Beauty Junkies know art is makeup, makeup is art." In other words, green is green, kids.
