First Look: Proenza Schouler for M.A.C.
"It has taken a couple of years -- it's crazy!" Jack McCollough, half of the Proenza Schouler design team, says of his brand's collaboration with M.A.C.

"The lead times for developing make-up are so much longer ... We're used to drawing something up on a clothing level and seeing it just a week later."

Makeup enthusiasts everywhere can relate to McCollough's pain -- we've been on tenterhooks ever since word of the collection was announced last October.

Now, 6 months later, we can get our hands (lips, eyes and cheeks) on the beautiful colors and specially designed packaging that are the cornerstones of this limited edition offering.

"There's a beachiness to the whole collection - a summery quality with those faded neon kind of colors," explains the brand's other half, Lazaro Hernandez. "There's a naturalness in terms of color, but because it is make-up, we wanted to up the ante and do something a little bit different than what we do for the shows. But we didn't want it to be too 'vixen' or vampy. It's cooler - there's a breeziness, a nonchalance."

If your makeup bag is feeling a void in the breezy, summer, nonchalant areas, the collection is available in stores and online now through May 22.
