MAC cosmetics is on a throwback buzz. Fresh off the back of announcing a ride on the Starship Enterpise — and giving a sneak peek of their collection with Texas-born Tejano singer Selena — the brand has announced its most brilliantly retro collaboration yet. It's with Good Luck Trolls, the wild-haired, wizardesque toys of your youth.

"The Good Luck Trolls have evoked love and joy since the 1960s," said MAC Senior Vice President/Group Creative Director James Gager. "We are so happy we can put the spotlight on them again. MAC Cosmetics celebrates pop culture and fantasy — and brings these enchanting characters to life — through this eclectic, bright-hued collection."

The new collection will include lipsticks in intriguing shades like sheer lime yellow and rich blue, a shade of Lipglass called Twerkquoise (plus another called Bubble Butt) and eyeshadows bright enough to make Mimi Bobeck blush. They'll all come wrapped in equally kaleidoscopic packaging, of course. 

The collaboration drops in August, just in time for the November release of Trolls the movie starring Anna Kendrick, Justin Timberlake, and Gwen Stefani. Safe to say, all signs are pointing to a high density of nude leotards come October 31st this year.
